OpenAIRE has made great progress in linking EC funded projects with publications and research data on the EU level by indexing harvested data and making that information available through the API. In Croatia, we use this API to get the updated project information and besides the EC funded projects, we are also linking research projects by Croatian funding bodies, e.g...

COAR counters reports of repositories' demise

Guest post by Kathleen Shearer, Executive Director, COAR “The reports of our death have been greatly exaggerated” (to paraphrase Mark Twain) Last week COAR published a response to an article written by Richard Poynder on September 22, 2016. Although some of Richard Poynder’s comments definitely reflect the current reality, he made a number of other somewhat questionable assertions, in particular that institutional repositories (IRs) have failed. Poynder's comments reflect a creeping narrative en...

Luckily, moments of breakdown (like the SSRN sell-off) help illuminate problems with the system and call on us to change what is broken.
