*PEER -- Year 2 Annual Report Now Available *

Reporting on the past 12 months of activity in this ground breaking 
collaboration between publishers, repositories and the research 
community investigating the effects of Green Open Access, the PEER 
Annual Report highlights the complexity of the infrastructure required 
for PEER and the substantial progress achieved towards the project's 

To simulate the large-scale, systematic depositing of authors' final 
peer-reviewed manuscripts accepted for journal publication, 12 
participating publishers are providing content and associated metadata 
from 241 participating journals. Half of the manuscripts are being 
submitted directly to PEER, while for the other half, authors are 
invited by publishers to self-deposit into the project.

All submitted content is being received by the PEER Depot, a central 
repository created specifically for the project by INRIA, which 
undertakes filtering for EU research content, metadata matching and 
transformations, and embargo management prior to distribution to 
participating repositories.

By the end of year 2 (August 2010), almost 25,000 unique publisher 
provided manuscripts had been processed by the PEER Depot, resulting in 
10,000 EU manuscripts after processing (some still under embargo), with 
embargo expired manuscripts distributed to participating repositories.

The three areas of usage, economic and behavioural research commissioned 
by PEER are well underway, with the Baseline Behavioural Report already 
publicly available from the PEER website.

With a robust infrastructure in place, the next phase of the project 
will see increasing volumes of content becoming available in support of 
the ongoing research.

About PEER:

PEER (Publishing and the Ecology of European Research), supported by the 
EC eContent/plus/ programme 
will investigate the effects of the large-scale, systematic depositing 
of authors' final peer-reviewed manuscripts (so called Green Open Access 
or stage-two research output) on reader access, author visibility, and 
journal viability, as well as on the broader ecology of European 
research. The project is a collaboration between publishers, 
repositories and researchers and will last from September 2008 to May 2012
