This is a status update regarding the collection ROAD: Directory of Open Access Scholarly Resources provided by the ISSN International Centre.
The ISSN International Centre is aware of the existence of broken URLs in this collection due to the constant evolution of the “open access” landscape and has initiated a solution for this.
They are in the process of implementing a new functionality in their production tool, that will detect broken URLs. Once the tool identifies broken links, these titles will be removed from the KBART title list. These removals will be ingested and reflected in the Knowledge Bases so that the titles with the broken links will be removed.
However, if the ISSN International Centre finds a new relevant URL, this will be updated back in the KBART title list, which will then be reflected in the Knowledge Bases.
The ISSN International Centre will continue to extend their technical cooperation with ExLibris to address this issue.
