Repositories are being popular as places for publication of research outputs. To make more efficient use of scholarly information
on the internet, repositories are required to cooperate with other databases. One of the essential processes of the cooperation
is identification of scholarly papers and their authors. The straightforward approach is string matching of the title and
authors’ name, however this approach cannot always solve the difficulties by basic clerical errors and same names. This paper
proposes a method to compensate for the inaccuracy of the identification by connecting different databases. The main idea
of the method is that different metadata of a scholarly paper is linked by the authors themselves, therefore the correspondence
is guaranteed by the authors. The authors of this paper are developing a system based on the idea on the repository and the
researcher database in their university.

    • "The number of the archived papers (full-text) in the IR is about 17,000 as of July 2011. The number of the metadata of papers registered in the researcher database in Kyushu University (DHJS) [1] is about 86,000, and the number of distinct papers is at least 68,000 if we consider duplication by co-authors [12]. That is, a large number of papers produced in Kyushu University are not archived in the IR. "

    ABSTRACT: The paper introduces a Web system which supports registration of scholarly papers to institutional repositories. Institutional repository is an important service for academic societies, however the number of archived papers is not enough in most of institutions. The authors of the paper developed a system that supports authors of papers (that is, researchers) and managers of repositories in registration of papers. By connecting with external databases of published research papers, the system urges researchers register their papers to repository. Additionally, the system automatically searches the copyright policy for each paper also using external databases. This paper makes clear the problem of current institutional repositories, and then describes the detailed idea of the developed system as a solution. The system is expected to decrease the efforts of researchers and managers for paper registration, and increase the number of archived papers in institutional repositories thereby.

    ABSTRACT: This paper introduces a synergy of a researcher database and an institutional repository. We consider a problem to create hyperlinks from metadata of scholarly works in the researcher database to digital contents in the institutional repository. Normally, matching the metadata of the databases in the backend would facilitate creation of these hyperlinks. However our proposal does not require the backend matching of metadata.

    ABSTRACT: An institutional repository is a system for archiving research outputs such as scholarly papers. In order to increase the number of archived papers in institutional repositories, the registration process controlled by repository managers should be improved. The authors of this paper conducted an investigation on the efforts involved in paper registration with institutional repositories in several universities. The paper shows the result as a formalized workflow of the process. The investigation showed that one of the hardest tasks for repository managers is confirmation of the copyright policy of publishers. The authors developed a system that automatically searches the copyright policy on external databases.
