English abstract

The DINI certificate for document and publication repositories aims to network document and publication repositories by pushing the use of standards and promoting interoperability and cooperation between German higher education institutions that run digital repositories. With the certificate DINI provides an instrument for the repository operators that could be used to raise the visibility, the recognition, and the importance of the digital repository within the university. The certificate shows potential users and authors of digital documents that a certain quality level in operating the repository is guaranteed and that this distinguishes it from common web servers of institutions. The certificate consists of the following criteria: Server Policy Authors Support Legal Issues Authenticity and Data Integrity Indexing (Subject Indexing, Metadata, Export) Statistics and Impact Longterm Preservation In addition, DINI sees its certificate as an instrument to support the Open Access concept. This certificate can be viewed as a "soft certificate", where the coaching idea prevails. It works on the basis of self disclosure by the repositories. This talk will summarize the certification experiences made by DINI, explain the new version of the DINI certificate 2006, how it supports Open Access and how it distinguishes itself from other certification efforts, like the nestor or the RLG approaches.
