This is a question that comes up again and again when we’re talking about the One Repo: how is it different from SHARE?
SHARE stands for SHared Access Research Ecosystem. It is an initiative of academic libraries in the USA, initially created as a response to the OSTP memo on public access. This memo was an important game-changer for how scholarly publishing will work in the USA, effectively expanding the NIH’s very successful public access policy across most federally funded research.
We’ve recently added an interesting new feature to The One Repo’s user interface. Now, any subdomain of the onerepo.net domain can be configured to provide access to a regional, national or subject-based subset of the harvested targets. For example, us.onerepo.net is set up to search only the US-based repositories.
We could equally set up physics.onerepo.net for the union of all physics repositories, for example; or eu.onerepo.net for European repositories.
