So-called 'cover sheets' are a major impediment to the realisation of (semi)automated dissemination and discovery of open access resources in repositories.

The COAR Next Generation Repositories Working Group recently published a report, and has established a website outlining technologies and repository ‘behaviours’ which the group believes could become the foundation of a repository-based ‘scholarly commons’. Links to the report, website and other resources are available on the COAR website [^1]

Inn addition to the paper (Cover Sheets Considered Harmful - Tonkin, Taylor & Tourte)[^2] recommended already by Kevin Ashley in this thread, I would draw your attention to an approach called ’Signposting’[^3] which the COAR Next Generation Repositories Working Group believes could be easily adopted by repositories, and which could have an immediate beneficial effect.

I understand that some repository platform suppliers are already working to implement this. If implemented, Signposting could ensure that the the valuable resources (papers, datasets etc.) are discoverable and usable by automated processes such as large harvester/aggregation services.

We are looking into automating production, but in case this proves impossible we’re also considering whether the benefit of having a cover sheet outweighs the downside of producing it!
