SWORD is a UK, JISC-funded initiative to define and develop a standard mechanism for depositing content (e.g. author manuscripts) into Institutional Repositories (IRs). The Aries product management team would like to know your opinions about the SWORD protocol. Would you like to see it supported in journal workflow? Are authors asking for this feature? At what point would you make the deposit? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your opinions.
