Abstract: In 2005 the Digital Archiving Group, a working group of Oxford University's Information and Communication Technologies Committee (ICTC), suggested that a pilot project for the digital archiving of scholarly papers be developed. To support this suggestion, and to investigate the wider issues relating to eprints and institutional repositories, a workshop was organised on 10 June 2005. The purpose of the workshop was to investigate the opportunities and challenges of developing an open access institutional repository for research. The workshop was organised under the aegis of the Digital Archiving Group and in association with the Oxford Internet Institute, the Research Technologies Service (OUCS), and the Systems and Electronic Resources Service (OULS). "Towards a Research Repository" is derived from an earlier briefing document entitled, "Towards a policy for open access to research at Oxford University : briefing document", which was produced for, and considered by, participants at the research repositories workshop. The purpose of the document is to provide a summary of progress thus far, including a series of recommendations put forward, and further refined, at the June workshop. The document was received by the Digital Archiving Group on 28 Feb 2006.
