26. NEEO to host a conference on subject repositories in London 2010
To mark the launch of Economists Online, the NEEO Project will be holding its final conference at the British Library Conference Centre on 28-29 January 2010. The conference will provide speakers from differing perspectives (i.e. the funder, researcher, subject repository partner) with an opportunity to consider the benefits and challenges in establishing such a service.

High profile speakers will place the Economists Online service into context through regional comparisons of subject repository development worldwide, before casting their eyes to the future. Workshops will discuss success factors and challenges in the areas of content recruitment, infrastructure and interoperability, multilingual tools, intellectual property rights, data sets and usage statistics.

We hope you will be able to join us in London in the New Year. Further information, including speakers, the programme, how to register, local information (hotels and travel arrangements), will be available shortly.

25. Economists Online asking for feedback from researchers
On 2 February 2009 a mid project questionnaire was launched to gather early feedback on the design and functionalities of Economists Online and to allow further refinements of the service. We aim to model the next and public version (to be launched in autumn 2009) on researcher feedback. We would appreciate it if you took about 15mins to fill in thisonline questionnaire. The questionnaire closes on Tuesday 31 March 2009.

24. New Economists Online portal goes live for NEEO partners
Economists Online went on air on 2 February 2009. This is a cross-searchable portal with a focus on quality economics research results. It includes profiles of hundreds of leading authors and their comprehensive publication lists with links to many full texts free of charge. Over 300 researchers from 6 top economics institutions (The London School of Economics, Tilburg University, Erasmus University Rotterdam, Maastricht University, Université Libre de Bruxelles and Katholieke Universiteit Leuven) are currently feeding this first phase of the service.

Feedback from the NEEO project participants and their researchers will be considered for the design of the next version of the service. The public can expect access to the second version, which will cover access to the direct research results of over 800 researchers in some 20 prestigious economics institutions (e.g. the universities of Oxford, Warwick and Carlos III Madrid) in autumn 2009.

23. NEEO chooses Dataverse software
During the NEEO WP4 Dataset meeting at Sciences Po in Paris on 15 January 2009, the NEEO partners decided to use the software from theDataverse Network Project. This software will store the datasets available through open access for researchers participating in the NEEO project.

The DVN software is already popular among some well known research institutions and archives. Dataverse is easy to use and it contains features that effectively promote datasharing among scholars. Dataverse enables the citation of datasets, local branding of the software, tracking download statistics and it includes customizable DDI data description templates. Partners can choose whether they upload the datasets or decide to store the datasets locally and provide links to the data in the DDI metadata. In 2009 all NEEO partners will be actively collecting datasets that are underpinning scholarly publications.

22. Two new partners for NEEO
NEEO welcomes the European University Institute (EUI) and Columbia University, as its first partner from the United States. NEEO is now beginning to branch out to include partners from outside Europe.
NEEO’s newest partners are presently exploring what content will be aggregated for the Economists Online service. We hope to see data online in EO from them in 2009/10.

21. NEEO returns from a successful EC mid-term review NEEO had its mid-term review at the European Commission at its offices in Luxembourg on 4 December 2008. The EC concluded that NEEO was a good project, with particular strengths in project management, up2date technical solutions, and content delivery. The EC also posed a number of questions, ranging from asking about the stability of the system, sustainability of the service after the end of the project, and partner participation. The EC also made additional helpful comments such as alerting us to the value in our comprehensive metadata stock which puts us at an advantage compared to any publisher. If you have any ideas on what kinds of other services we could develop based on our metadata apart from our automated publication lists, please let us know by mailingv.m.proudman@uvt.nl
