The NLK signs an OAK repository distribution agreement with four organizations,
including the Academy of Korean Studies
On July 8, the National Library of Korea (Chief Executive Suh Hye Ran) will sign an OAK (Open Access Korea) repository distribution agreement with the Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology, Soon Chun Hyang University Hospital Cheonan, National Youth Policy Institute, and the Academy of Korean Studies.
The NLK has been distributing its repository system to universities, research institutes, and public organizations since 2014. It uses the OAK Repository (oak.go.kr) to provide open access to more than 930,000 items of academic information collected through the project.
The OAK Repository enables the construction and sharing of metadata for academic papers and research data by applying OAK’s expandable standard metadata. It provides optimized search to facilitate the sharing of research information by institutions and their researchers.
By signing the agreement, theses four organization producing research data in the fields of medicine, youth policy, Korean Studies, and science and technology will receive the following support from NLK: Building their own outlets for the latest OAK repository; linking the institution’s performance management system with the repository; free maintenance service for one year; and training for repository operators.
“We will gradually expand support, including on establishing partner institutions’ repository policies, in order to foster open access in the country and continue building cooperative systems with research institutions,” said an NLK official.
Open Access (OA) is a range of practices through which research output is shared free of cost without any legal or technical barriers.
The OAK Repository is a Korean OA archive that the NLK distributes to universities, research institutions, and public organizations. Using this repository, institutions can register and manage the research output of their members.
