Research and Markets: Institutional Digital Repository Benchmarks, 2014

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/j3cglz/institutional) has announced the addition of the "Institutional Digital Repository Benchmarks, 2014" report to their offering.

This 135-page international study of the digital repositories of universities and other research oriented organizations presents data from 35 digital repositories from the USA, Canada, Europe and Latin America.

The report presents detailed information on downloads, source of downloads, repository website activity, publishing activities, repository marketing, budgets and funding, staffing, fees and revenues, outreach to faculty, content holdings, and many other facets of institutional digital repository management and development. The report provides trend data on the inclusion of various types of intellectual property including journal articles, books, classroom video and lectures and other materials. The study pinpoints how repositories are being used and by whom, defining for repository policy planners growth areas in the type of intellectual property being downloaded by repository end users.

Data is broken out for US and non-US institutions, by public or private status of the institution, and by Carnegie class, Full time enrollment, and years in operation for the digital repository.

Just a few of the study's many findings are that:

  • 12.12% of survey participants have established any form of peer review network
  • 18.18% of repositories in the sample have their own blogs, which are much more common among repositories in the United States (21.05%) than they are among all other repositories (14.29%)
  • 71.43% of downloads from the US-based repositories in the sample came form institutions in the United States, including the same institution that sponsors the repository
  • Research universities in the sample had mean annual repository budgets of $200,000
  • A median of 5% of journal articles published by the faculties of the organizations in the sample have been archived in the institutional repositories of those organizations
  • Survey participants estimate that a mean of 62.19% of the books in their digital repository are full open access prior to or upon publication
  • Among those six repositories in the sample that do have an e-publishing program, each repository has published a mean of 17.33 book titles in the past three years
  • Survey participants in the United States, on average, dedicate to their digital repositories a greater number of man-hours than those outside the US, with a mean of 3,885 for the former and a mean of just 2,373 for the latter
