NEEO: Network of European Economists Online

NEEO creates a powerful new research tool called Economists Online that increases the visibility of economists research by collecting it in a single, cross- searchable portal

NEEO addresses the issue of the lack of integration of academic output, including data, among leading economics research institutions across Europe.  This adversely affects the visibility, usability and accessibility of this information for users in Europe and in the world at large. Building on a small-scale pilot, the members of the Nereus Consortium, including many of the top-twenty European academic economics institutions, together with other leading European economics research institutes, are proposing to create a networked service providing open access to economics information. Based on the content of the Institutional Repositories of the partners, the project takes an international, subject-oriented approach which will set standards, guaranteeing the quality of the information and, as a result, providing the branding which can act as a model for others to follow. The project will establish a central multilingual portal with enhanced metadata descriptions of and links to the full-text research publications and primary data output of a) 500 top researchers and b) the recent economics publications of the partner institutions. The content from the partner institutions will be complemented by other open access economics content. The portal will provide appropriate services for various user communities, i.e. researchers, students and policy makers in the public and private sectors.  The research output will also include primary datasets with links to the publications based upon them. The project will aggregate the currently uncoordinated economics research output of the major institutions and, supported by content submission workflow guidelines and IPR guidelines for authors, create a critical mass and an economy of scale that individual collections cannot hope to achieve. In summary, NEEO will create a sustainable integrated online showcase for Europe’s top economics research.
