StORe Wars: May the Source and its Outputs be with you

The area of interaction between output (research publication) repositories and source (primary research data) repositories was the principal focus of the StORe project. The main aim of the project was to identify options for increasing the value of using both source and output repositories by improving the linkages between them, thereby increasing the potential from significantly enhanced information access and dissemination. A key deliverable from the StORe Project is the pilot demonstrator.  It consists of a set of middleware designed to demonstrate the function of bi-directional links between source and output repositories. This middleware was developed to meet the specific needs of the social science e-research community, but is based on the underlying general requirements as defined from the StORe survey of the behaviours of researchers within seven scientific disciplines represented by the project. The pilot demonstrates the implementation of enhanced functionality within a test environment and the potential for a generic solution across the UK’s broader e-research community. A short time hence, in a hyperspace not so far away, researchers will be able to instantly move from any publication to the data on which its findings were based, to instantly be linked to all publications that have resulted from a particular dataset and to move seamlessly around the research environment of data and its outputs.
