RoMEO API Workshop, Edinburgh, 1st September

I’m sure that most readers are already very familiar with the SHERPA RoMEO service that is maintained by the CRC to provide details of publisher copyright and self-archiving policies. The service is in the middle of a major improvement programme as described in the RoMEO team’s poster at Open Repositories 2010.

RoMEO also provides an API for machine-to-machine access to the service and SHERPA and RSP are teaming up to provide a workshop on the interface as a pre-event to Repository Fringe 2010. The workshop will introduce the API and the experiences of some of its users before moving on to a discussion of how the improvements to the service may affect the API. This will be an opportunity for interested parties to influence the development of the API and so is essential for anyone who is currently or is considering programatically accessing the service.

The workshop takes place on 1st September at the e-Science Institute, Edinburgh and places can be booked via the RSP web site.
