Importance of long-term data preservation

There is increasing recognition of the importance of data especially as its production and volume grows at ever increasing rates. It has been observed that the volume of data now present when compared to just two years ago is many-fold larger. This leads to the difficult question of what are valuable data and what are not. Indeed, much of the data being generated is from automated systems such as consumer internet-of-things (IoT) devices, weather detection instruments, and so forth. In many case...

For some time now, data management plans (DMPs) have been required for externally funded projects by some funding institutions. Especially in the humanities, this way of recording research materials and results is often not yet widespread and therefore often poses challenges for researchers. In this workshop, the DMP of the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) was discussed step by step as an example, and exemplary answers from classic humanities projects were given. The series of events was developed wi...

A new report has been published by the Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling at the University of Warsaw to present the current situation regarding transformative agreements. The report entitled "Transformative Agreements: Overview, Case Studies, and Legal Analysis" sheds light on transformative agreements from the factual and legal point of view, as well as provides some recommendations in this area. The first chapter provides the context and main principles...

On 27 November 2020, the Consultation on Changing the Research Assessment was organised in Slovenia by the OpenAIRE National Open Access Desk and the Ljubljana University Press, Faculty of Arts. It was attended by 289 participants via Zoom and YouTube. Presentations and recordings are available from the programme or as a YouTube playlist.

"It is great being able to participate without travelling, but it's tiresome to sit in a webinar meeting for half a day." Our participants were mostly happy with the program offered, but had some objections and some ideas for making it better next time. We had 171 registered participants, mostly from university libraries in Sweden, but also other research stakeholders both in Sweden and the Nordic countries. We had four presentations and a group discussion at the end. Liber's President, Jeannett...

The University of Malta Library, in collaboration with OpenAIRE, are organising an online seminar entitled: Open Science: The Future of Scholarly Communication, on Wednesday, 24th February 2021 via zoom.

After being postponed twice, due to Covid-19, the online OpenAIRE Good Practice Exchange (GPE) programme organized by DANS (Data Archiving and Networked Services) took place on 18 January 2021. The goal of the programme is to provide a framework through which OpenAIRE NOADs can share their knowledge and expand their skills in Open Science. And because DANS is a national centre of expertise and repository for research data, the main topics on this day were best practices on Research Data Manageme...

Authors: Gina Pavone and Emma Lazzeri, ISTI-CNR In 2020, the Italian NOAD started a new project on training. The initial idea was to design a set of events to show the way the general and cross-sectoral topic of Open Science was embedded in a particular discipline, delving into aspects and tools specific for a single research area. A first webinar for earth and environmental sciences was held in May: it was a single and introductory webinar on the principles and motivation of Open Science. ...

Background: Towards the end of 2020, CHIST-ERA organized a set of training events for its researchers network in light of their newly adopted Open Science policy. The courses were prepared and run in partnership with OpenAIRE that has been advising CHIST-ERA on Open Access and Research Data Management (RDM) issues to develop and implement policies and services (CHIST-ERA Open Science Advisory Board). CHIST-ERA is a pan european consortium of national funders supporting research on Information an...

In focus: The Greek academic library community was recently enhanced with an Open Science service supported by HEAL-Link. The newly established "Scholarly Communication Unit" aims to provide librarians with information about Open Access (OA) and scholarly communication, such as best practices on research data, scholarly metrics and peer review. It is also assigned to represent the consortium in international partnerships and projects. The Scholarly Communication Unit operates in the University o...
