Zenodo now supports DOI versioning!

We are pleased to announce the launch of DOI versioning support in Zenodo - the open research repository from OpenAIRE and CERN. This new feature enables users to update the record’s files after they have been made public and researchers to easily cite either specific versions of a record or to cite, via a top-level DOI, all the versions of a record.DOI versioning support was one of our most requested features for Zenodo, and it has been co-developed by OpenAIRE’s Zenodo team and EUDAT’s B2SHARE...

On Deduplication in the OpenAIRE infrastructure

The purpose of this article is to sketch the technical issues behind duplicate identification in the context of the OpenAIRE infrastructure. Duplicate identification, to be followed by merging of duplicates, is the most important phase of the deduplication process. The major challenge in duplicate identification is the trade off between efficacy, i.e. ability to identify all possible groups of duplicates, and efficiency, i.e. time to process. Our intention is to explain the reasons of possible i...

After SSRN: Hallmarks of trust for subject repositories

After SSRN: Hallmarks of trust for subject repositories

On Tuesday 17th May, the scholarly communications community on Twitter erupted at the news that publishing giant Elsevier had acquired the Social Science Research Network (SSRN), a pre-print and publishing community focusing on social sciences and law. The acquisition seems designed to continue Elsevier’s move away from a content-driven business strategy towards one oriented on services and the monetisation of data and analytics, building on their purchase of Mendeley. Elsevier’s press release s...

Infrastructure is Invisible / Infrastructure is Law

Infrastructure is Invisible / Infrastructure is Law

As both Geoffrey Bilder and Martin Heidegger tell us, infrastructure is usually invisible and we only notice it when something goes wrong. This is profoundly problematic for scholarly communications, since infrastructure is also law – it shapes thoughts and actions. Luckily, moments of breakdown (like the SSRN sell-off) help illuminate problems with the system and call on us to change what is broken.[caption id="attachment_1000" align="alignleft" width="232"] CC BY-SA David Wright"Infrastructure...

OpenAIRE as the basis for a European Open Access Platform

OpenAIRE as the basis for a European Open Access Platform

An exciting recent article on the LSE Impact Blog proposes a European Open Access Platform for research. This idea is very much in line with OpenAIRE’s mission of building a public research publication infrastructure and as such we welcome the authors’ vision. A public platform for the dissemination of research will become essential infrastructure to finally fully integrate research publishing and dissemination into the research lifecycle, rather than seeing it as an added-extra to be outsourced...
