- Step 7 - Repository Launch and Registration with Harvesters
- Plan for an official launch, preferably during Open Access week where your institution signs the Open Access Berlin Declaration.
- Register your repository with as many harvesters as you can.
- Check that you have enabled all the Google indexing tools.
- Check that the sitemaps for Google are working.
- Prepare a plan, as soon as possible, to use the handle service as the default digital object identifier (DOI) service.
