VIPER: The Visual Project Explorer

Blogpost by Open Knowledge Maps A massive 2.4 million research projects from around the world are listed in the OpenAIRE database. But getting an overview of project outputs can be tedious: you are often faced with lengthy reports and outdated project websites, especially when the project has already finished. This leads to a situation that you probably encountered before - it is almost impossible to get a complete and clear picture of what has been produced in some of the most important project...

Data2Paper Scholix Integration

Introduction to Data2paper‘Data2Paper’ is a ‘one-click’ process to streamline the data paper publication workflow. Metadata about a dataset (together with a link to the dataset itself) are transferred from a data repository, via a cloud-based helper app which allows the addition of methodological detail, to a relevant publisher as a data paper submission. The app leverages DataCite DOI and ORCID functionality to avoid data re-entry, saving time and avoiding errors. If accepted and published, sub...

CRISs as data providers to OpenAIRE: an update

Once the OpenAIRE-funded METIS2OpenAIRE project led by euroCRIS finished as of mid-May, the basis has been laid for the addition of CRIS systems as data providers into the OpenAIRE aggregation. METIS2OpenAIRE set out to enable the exposure of the METIS CERIF-compliant CRIS metadata feed via an OAI-PMH endpoint so that it could be tested against the CERIF-XML Guidelines for CRIS Managers. The project developed a minimally sufficient validator for this purpose. A sample for the 300,000-record meta...
