Verifiable key figures will showcase the success of the DeepGreen project after its completion.
1. Criteria for success concerning the publishers: Since a publisher can end their cooperation prematurely, negotiations with other publishers are ongoing, to ensure that at the end of the project at least 2 publishers have been part of the project and are willing to participate in the subsequent phase.
2. Criteria for success concerning the amount of delivered Allianz-License publications: A majority of the journal articles under the Allianz-License has been transferred from the publishers to DeepGreen.
3. Criteria for success concerning the delivery to institutional repositories for testing purposes: 85% of the articles delivered to DeepGreen (see criteria #2), with authors affiliated with one of the following institutions: FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg, TU-Berlin and GFZ Potsdam, have been transferred into their associated repositories.
Lastly the transferability of the DeepGreen project into other contexts will be tested:
The focus is especially on the transferability with consortium agreements outside the DFG funding. Negotiations over subsequent publications are, in some cases, already happening in the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Deutscher, Österreichischer und Schweizer Konsortien (GASCO) represented buying groups. DeepGreen can point to courses of actions for this and present a technical and organisational solution for a optimized use of subsequent publications. The transferability of the developed workflows beyond the narrow context of already negotiated Allianz-Licenses can also be used as a benchmark criteria.
