CROSBI indexed in OpenAIRE Explore


As part of the activities of the Centre for Scientific Information of the Ruđer Bošković Institute in the Horizon 2020 project OpenAIRE Advance, the Croatian Scientific Bibliography - CROSBI has been upgraded and is now aligned with the latest OpenAIRE interoperability guidelines (v. 4.0). With that, CROSBI became the first Croatian data infrastructure at the highest level aligned with the prescribed guidelines, and the records from CROSBI are now also available through OpenAIRE Explore. As part of the OpenAIRE guidelines, the publicly available OAI-PMH database is implemented in CROSBI, through which metadata records can be collected in accordance with the defined guidelines. 

OpenAIRE Explore is a service built as part of OpenAIRE projects that provides access to full texts of publications stored in a network of interoperable digital repositories around the world. Explore links downloaded records to other, existing records of the same publications from other global interoperable infrastructures, as well as data on related projects, authors and research data, and the great advantage of this interface is the ability to filter records depending on availability of publications in open access. Of course, the ability to filter by open access has been available for years through CROSBI, but through OpenAIRE Explore it is possible to do so for over 123 million publications from around the world. 

Aligning CROSBI with the OpenAIRE guidelines and connecting it with a network of interoperable digital repositories from around the world has further increased the visibility of scientific productivity of the Croatian academic and research community, which will certainly positively contribute to Croatia's continued leadership in the availability of open access publications.
