EU-eContent+ PEER project
Participant : Laurent Romary.
PEER (“Publishing and the Ecology of European Research ”) is an EU eContent+ project which started on Sept. 1, 2008 and will last 36 months. Funding for INRIA is 247 kEuros. The project is coordinated by STM (International Association of Scientific, Technical and Medical Publishers) and involves the European Science Foundation, Göttingen State and University Library, and the Max Planck Society. The overall aim of the project is to develop an Observatory to monitor the effects of systematic archiving on publishing and the ecology of European research (PEER). INRIA (through Gemo and IT support group SEISM) is in charge of specifying and implementing the gateway through which scientific publishers deposit metadata and full text content of scholarly papers to be redirected to several trusted publication repositories. This involves in particular the mapping of publishers' data onto a standardized XML representation.
