Qatar Qatar University Library collaborates with Elsevier to improve coverage and discoverability of published research by Qatar University authors - 04 Oct 2016

Qatar University Library and STM publisher Elsevier have announced their collaboration to maximize visibility, impact and dissemination of articles published by QU faculty and researchers.

Through Elsevier's ScienceDirect APIs, QUL's institutional repository (QSpace) now receives an automated feed of metadata, abstracts and embargo end date information for all articles published in Elsevier journals by Qatar University authors.

In addition, QSpace is the first institutional repository to use DSpace plug-ins which have been developed by Atmire. These plug-ins facilitate easy integration of ScienceDirect APIs within a repository.

Qatar University is preparing to roll out the integration for all ScienceDirect articles written by QU authors.

In the next phase, Qatar University and Elsevier will add an online reading version of accepted manuscripts within QSpace. This means that all QSpace users will be able to read full-text versions of articles. Users not affiliated with institutions subscribing to ScienceDirect will be able to view post-embargo accepted manuscripts.
