Versioning, validating, and evaluating OA repository content

Francesca Valentini, Le pubblicazioni in Open Access: versioni, validazione e valutazione, presented at Pubblicazioni scientifiche, diritti d’autore ed Open Access: il punto di vista di ricercatori, editori e biblioteche (Trento, June 20, 2008). English abstract:
This presentation focuses on peer review and version identification of digital objects as a means for Open Access scientific outputs to finally enter the "exclusive world" of research evaluation and assessment, as well as for OA repositories to become part of research assessment workflows. Some versioning projects are presented, in the frame of Italian and British research assessment situations.
