We've decided to use a separate EPrints instance for our data repository as we believe

• keeping the two separate helps with managing processes for REF and other similar activities

• it will allow flexibility of upload configurations for research data

• it permits customised and simpler metadata-entry screens which will benefit users

• maintaining accurate statistics for percentage downloads will be easier if data and outputs content are in separate instances.

Our initial build is now ready for customisation (http://researchdata.uwe.ac.uk/). We’ll be working on this over the next few weeks towards demonstrating and testing with our group of pilot researchers and some test data. Testing will include a variety of projects, data formats and file sizes to stress the limits of EPrints. We are now started on the way to a UWE data repository; more updates will follow.
