It is a great opportunity to present and discuss recent developments from OpenAIRE, upcoming releases from the PROVIDE related services and other relevant topics. Through the calls OpenAIRE provides clear and accurate information on its infrastructure and service developments.
The main topic of the upcoming meeting will be about the OpenAIRE UsageCounts, the analytics service of OpenAIRE Research Graph. It will focus on presenting the latest developments that ensure better stability and quality of service for the end user.
The Community calls are open to all OpenAIRE content provider managers and we welcome any feedback from users.
Available on GitHub
The OpenAIRE Broker service is a powerful tool that enables content providers to enrich research results with additional metadata. A recent development is the built of a new command line client to access notification records from the OpenAIRE Broker public API.
What’s new: Until now, the enrichments were only made available as notifications in the Content Provider Dashboard, but from now on, are also accessible through the Broker Service API for programmatic access.
How to use: The first version of the Java-based command line client is on GitHub, and the produced files can be used as input to the Data correction service for DSpace7/DSpace-CRIS 7 developed by 4Science in the context of the OpenAIRE-Advance Open Innovation Call.
Full documentation, GitHub links and installation instructions of the Data correction service are available here.
Get to know the Data Correction service to enrich your repository
The Data Correction service aims to improve existing data in the repository using feedback that OpenAIRE makes available via the Notification Broker Service, such as missing or additional metadata.
Developed by 4Science in collaboration with the OpenAIRE technical team, in the context of the OpenAIRE-Advance Open Innovation Programme, this service is available for repositories running on the latest coming DSpace and DSpace-CRIS versions.
What’s new: The OpenAIRE services will become much more visible and easier to adopt for the DSpace community. The Notification Broker is immediately actionable in the repository: missing or additional information inferred by OpenAIRE can be reviewed and applied to the local data with one click, e.g. missing or additional metadata such as project, PIDs, abstract, subject, etc.
How to use: Reading this article, you can find more details on how to use this service for your DSpace repository.
Discover the most recent developments in analytics service of OpenAIRE
The analytics service of OpenAIRE Research Graph, the UsageCounts, collects usage data from repositories, journals and other scientific data sources, aggregates them and delivers standardized activity reports about research usage and uptake.
What’s new: The service has been subject to significant improvements over the last few months, focused on OpenAIRE infrastructure and workflows, resulting in significant enhancements for the end users.
Additionally, there are also new ongoing updates, such as regarding the Release 5 of the COUNTER Code of Practice, which is expected to be deployed in production very soon.
