What is ERef Bayreuth?

ERef Bayreuth serves as the key tool for documenting references of scholarly publications by the staff members of the University of Bayreuth, while at the same time functioning as a tool for the preparation of the University's bibliography as well as supporting the author's publication management.

In terms of content, ERef Bayreuth's structure mirrors the organisation of the University. Authors enter the necessary data in person or by proxy after completing the log in process with their personal user id.

Benefits for researchers provided by ERef Bayreuth:

ERef Bayreuth increases the visibility of the University of Bayreuth's research output by its affiliation with the international project Open Archives Initiative. The repository's contents are subsequently available from the key referencing tools: (OAIster, BASE, Google Scholar etc.)

ERef Bayreuth is administrated by the University Library. The data input is reviewed by librarians, which helps to standardise its bibliographical quality.

The inclusion of personal or institutional lists of publications in individual websites is possible through the University's CMS, including the automatic update of the lists in case of additions or changes. ERef Bayreuth provides an exporting function to re-use the data in bibliographic management software.

The metadata of full text documents added to EPub Bayreuth is automatically transferred to ERef Bayreuth by the University Library; the document itself is made available through a link to EPub Bayreuth.
