Why Should A Knee Brace Have An Open Patells


Here is a second set of summaries of papers to be presented at the Symposium

promotion initiatives del acceso abierto en RiuNet, Repositorio Institucional de la Universidad Politécnica de Valencia
Andrés Lloret, Maria Josep Torres, Eva Calatrava (UPV)

La comunicación trata de las diferentes iniciativas de promoción basadas en adaptaciones técnicas de la plataforma original realizadas desde la Biblioteca, con el apoyo técnico del Área de Sistemas de Información y Comunicación, para impulsar el acceso abierto en la Universidad Politécnica de Valencia, a través de RiuNet, su repositorio institucional. Para conseguir promocionar el acceso abierto se han abierto varias vías de trabajo que permitan a los miembros de la comunidad universitaria difundir su producción intelectual de forma directa y sencilla. Con toda una serie de “pequeñas”acciones que se expondrán en la comunicación, se está consiguiendo, poco a poco, que RiuNet sea reconocido como una herramienta de difusión de la producción científica y académica propia y, por tanto, que sea usado cada vez más por la comunidad universitaria.

Análisis de las de las funcionalidades 2.0 ofrecidas por los repositorios españoles
Didac Margaix

Los Repositorios Institucionales suponen un elemento novedoso en el entorno universitario en cuanto a la comunicación científica y a la presencia digital de la producción de las universidades. Pero el entorno digital evoluciona very quickly and the various actors involved in scientific publication. The most significant change in web communication that has occurred in recent years has been the emergence of the services included under the Web 2.0 label which includes different services to share links, digital objects, managing relationships, information reuse, etc. . Some scientific journals are now offering these services. This paper analyzes the degree of implementation of such services in the field of English institutional repositories. To do this we first identify the types of services considered 2.0 and can be useful for communication scientific. Secondly, which of these possibilities accounts are offered by the repositories and finally discusses the results for the actions taken and identify possible areas for improvement.

Accessibility in the repositories
Mireia Ribera (UB)

It describes the relationship between the concepts of open access and universal access. From their point of connection it is argued the need to enhance the accessibility of open access institutional repository for legal, compliance and ethics objectives. This accessibility must be met both at the query interface at the level of content. A brief analysis of the current situation, noting the low compliance with basic accessibility criteria. Finally we conclude the presentation with some organizational and technical proposals to improve this situation.

Analysis of load frequency in large central repositories and institutional repositories
Luis-Millan Gonzalez, Fernanda Peset, Antonia Ferrer, Rafael Aleixandre (UPV, UV)

Information management is now a vital issue both for the end user, and professionals involved in managing digital resources. Despite the importance of the subject, little or nothing is known about the behavior of those using the repositories and those charged with feeding. This work presents a picture of the loading frequency of documents in the repositories and their final volume. In this way we try to give people involved in promoting a pattern of behavior that can guide their final decisions. The main objective is to analyze statistically the number of documents that are uploaded to central repository (CR) and institutional (IR). In conclusion we can deduce that researchers repositories, users must search every 50 days to properly update their references. Also, the repository managers warning systems (Email or RSS) may recommend that frequency.

Model Development Open Access at the National University of Colombia
Janeth Ardila, Arley Soto, Carlos Agudelo, Dion and Rocio Robledo Pulido (Universidad Nacional de Colombia)

The National University of Colombia adopted since 2006 by the open access model and full text online. Until then the service had conventional print library and some digital library services with limited access to the academic community. In the open access model, National University of Colombia has created two types of repository, one of which contains collections of books, papers and theses ( and uses the DSpace software, the second contains the academic and scientific journals from the National University ( and uses the Open Journal System software.
