suggest explain distinction between institutional webpage and institutional repository in context of depositing for OA


#3

agree with this. Also not clear why it says ‘the author’ rather than ‘an author’. Is ‘author’ defined somewhere else?


#4

I agree with the previous comments. Suggested alternative:

  • Short definition = A webpage featuring a researcher’s profile, hosted by their institution of employment.
  • Extended definition = A webpage featuring a researcher’s profile, which possibly may also provide links to their publications. The webpage is hosted on the website of the researcher’s employer - for example, a university website. There may or may not be a direct connection between the institutional webpage and the same institution’s repository (see “Institutional repository”), but researchers should generally ensure that their works are deposited in a repository in order to meet the Open Access requirements of many funders, due to the potential for differences in approach to long-term preservation and access between the managers of a repository and the managers of an institutional website.
  • Related terms = Personal webpage
