Four billion software files are open to all: the Software Heritage archive is finally online!

On the Software Heritage archive portal, more than 4 billion files from more than 80 million origins are available since June 7, 2018, date of the official opening ceremony held at the UNESCO, in the presence of sponsors and partners of Software Heritage. 

The Software Heritage archive plays an important role in Open Science: it preserves software source code, ensuring it will be accessible in the long term, and provides intrinsic persistent identifiers for software artefacts that enable not only access, but also verifiable integrity, contributing to making reproducibility and assessment of science more resilient.

What is the Open Data Pilot in Horizon2020?

A novelty in Horizon 2020 is the Open Research Data Pilot which aims to improve and maximize access to and re-use of research data generated by projects. Research data should be “as open as possible, as closed as necessary”, as stated in the Guidelines for FAIR Data Management in H2020. It will be monitored with a view to developing the European Commission policy on open research data in future Framework Programmes. Opting out – fully or in part – is possible before and during the project, but needs justification.

Starting from 2017 participating in the pilot will be the default option, although the call’s opening date is leading in determining if your project falls under the pilot.

Requirements are to:

  • develop and keep up-to-date a Data Management Plan (DMP).
  • deposit data in a research data repository, along with descriptive metadata (such as the title of the data set, the data authors or creators, and keywords), and the documentation and tools that is needed to understand, validate and reuse the data. Rich discipline-specific metadata and documentation is very valuable, and this can be deposited along with the data (see an example here: https://zenodo.org/record/50409#.WS6YnmiGPIU)
  • make sure third parties can freely access, mine, exploit, reproduce and disseminate it.
  • make clear what tools will be needed to use the raw data to validate research results or provide the tools themselves - (N.B. Tools cover software code, protocols, and anything else that makes the data reusable, or the research findings reproducible).

The pilot applies to

  • the data (and metadata) needed to validate results in scientific publications.
  • other curated and/or raw data (and metadata) that you specify in the DMP.

Please note that costs related to open access to research data in Horizon 2020 are eligible for reimbursement during the duration of the project under the conditions defined in the H2020 Grant Agreement: they must already be budgeted and accepted in the grant proposal, and note the “during the duration of the project”.
