About the Workshop

The sharing and re-use of research information is becoming an increasingly important aspect of scientific activity. Text publications are traditionally the main way of publishing research output and challenges still exist for their optimal recording and dissemination this workshop is to serve as a forum for experts to present recent results and experiences, establish liaisons with other groups and reflect on the state-of-the-art of metadata, semantic aspects of open repositories and the advancement in Latin America. We want to push forward theory and practice on Semantic and open access Institutional Repositories.
