Note: "RAE" = "Research Assessment Exercise" in which each department
of each UK university is evaluated for its research performance every
four years.
Australia is planning a similar exercise, the RQF ("Research Quality
Framework"), to which this announcement is also pertinent.

    Bronze release of RAE software for OA repositories

The Institutional Repository and Research Assessment (IRRA) has issued
the bronze release of its EPrints and DSpace RAE Software.

 From the site:

    The software to allow EPrints and DSpace institutional repositories

    to be used for RAE 2008 is now available in Bronze release form. This
    means that it has been adopted internally on the test institutions
    and has undergone some months of testing. It is now being made
    avalable to the UK academic community for repository managers to
    gain the experience of fitting it into their Institutional RAE
    processes. Support for this software is provided through the IRRA
    mailing list in the first instance. To sign up, please add your
    details to the IRRA wiki.
