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 objectives.
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
About PEER:
PEER (Publishing and the Ecology of European Research), supported by the EC
eContentplus 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
