The input from Institutional Repository managers is a fundamental part of the JournalTOCsAPI project which is why we are delighted with the response to our invitation to Repository managers to join our community of users. We have had around 20 responses to the invitation from both Institutional and Subject repositories from 4 continents.

One users commented “I think that the monitoring facility which your project describes would be very useful in supporting our onward administration needs”.

Thank you to all who have agreed to join our community of users and we look forward to working with you soon.
