Posted on Sunday, 4 December 2016
This week we celebrate the tenth anniversary of the UK federation, which has grown from a pilot project between Edinburgh University and Janet to the Service that Jisc provides today, with over a thousand members and reaching users and services in almost 40 countries. On the anniversary it seemed apt to update you on some developments which are occurring with the UK federation.

Posted on Monday, 28 November 2016
About the Research and Scholarship (R&S) Category
Candidates for the Research and Scholarship (R&S) Category are Service Providers that are operated for the purpose of supporting research and scholarship interaction, collaboration or management, at least in part. Example Service Providers may include (but are not limited to) collaborative tools and services such as wikis, blogs, project and grant management tools that require some personal information about users to work effectively. This Entity Category should not be used for access to licensed content such as e-journals. More information can be found here: https://refeds.org/category/research-and-scholarship
