The RIOXX Metadata Application Profile provides a mechanism to help institutional repositories comply with the RCUK policy on open access
. RIOXX focuses on applying consistency to the metadata fields used to record research funder and project/grant identifiers and is designed to support the consistent tracking of open-access research publications across scholarly systems.This website contains technical and non-technical information about the RIOXX Metadata Application Profile, including reports on its implementation in institutional repositories.

The RIOXX metadata application profile has been developed with input from HEFCE to help repositories to comply with the open access policy for the next REF. We support its uptake and use.
