Content Providers News no.23
26 June 2022
Upcoming meeting: 6th of April at 14h30 CEST
The Community Calls for Content Providers aims to present and discuss the most 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 upcoming meeting will be an opportunity to present recent developments and updates on the OpenAIRE Guidelines to include instructions for Horizon Europe projects, the new release of the "OpenAIRE CRIS Validator" (standalone version), as well as the plans for the delivery of the COUNTER R5 reports by UsageCounts service, namely the updates in the dashboard, aiming to get feedback from data source managers.
OpenAIRE guidelines for data source managers ensure compatibility of the Horizon Europe Open Science requirements
How the HE Open Science requirements are met
By following the OpenAIRE Guidelines for Literature, institutional, and thematic Repositories it is ensured that metadata specifications from the Horizon Europe (HE) Open Science requirements are me
To this end, OpenAIRE started by updating the "OpenAIRE Guidelines for Literature Repository Manager v3", providing instructions on how to expose HE project's information, including an example of an "Horizon Europe" funding programme and project.
OpenAIRE projects API will be also updated soon to include the HE projects information, essential for repositories that are consuming this API to fill in the project's information in the metadata description of their records.

CRIS systems assume a central position in the Research Information space, contributing to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of research information management activities by integrating and linking the various elements and processes that comprise the research ecosystem.
Taking into account the level of complexity of this information space, the standardised integration of resources containing literature publications, as well as data publications and project information, organisations and their units, patents, instruments/equipment is an essential task. OpenAIRE plays a relevant role on this matter, both through the OpenAIRE Guidelines for CRIS Managers based on CERIF-XML but also via the Validator, to test the compatibility with these guidelines (accessible through the PROVIDE dashboard).
Most recently, a standalone validator for CRIS Systems was developed to enable institutions, organisations, and research infrastructures to independently validate their CRIS systems against the OpenAIRE Guidelines for CRIS managers.
In cooperation with our partner euroCRIS (https://www.eurocris.org), OpenAIRE has updated the codebase of the OpenAIRE-CRIS validator from v1.3.0.
Discover the work plan to further explore the potential of the Broker service
In 2021 OpenAIRE ELD released two new services: the Data Correction (based on the OpenAIRE Notification Broker service), to enrich repository data by exploiting the vast amount of information made available by OpenAIRE, and the Publication Claim (based on the OpenAIRE Graph), to ensure that the repository stays up-to-date, by automatically discovering new content produced by the institution’s researchers in the OpenAIRE Graph, thus reducing the manual input from researchers (Read more).
In the context of EOSC-DIH (EOSC - Digital Innovation Hub), 4Science proposes to complete this task and make OpenAIRE services available out-of-box in the latest releases of DSpace as it was already done in DSpace-CRIS, for the international community of adopters, in collaboration with the OpenAIRE team.
Is an add-on to the OpenAIRE Broker service, to enable the integration of Data Correction Services and Publication suggested Claims to DSpace and DSpace-CRIS users and repository managers. The service will initially focus on OpenAIRE Broker, to validate its operation and quality and to be offered to the big community of repository managers.
