Updates in the PROVIDE dashboard to display the Terms of Use

The Terms of Use for Content Providers (ToU) are now displayed in the PROVIDE Dashboard interface. In order to be more transparent and to display more clearly the ToU to data source managers who are using the PROVIDE service, the Dashboard interface was updated to display the options to accept the ToU and to agree to the re-use of full texts. 

The Terms of Use for Content Providers (ToU) are now displayed in the PROVIDE Dashboard interface. In order to be more transparent and to display more clearly the ToU to data source managers who are using the PROVIDE service, the Dashboard interface was updated to display the options to accept the ToU and to agree to the re-use of full texts.

Despite this update happening now in the user interface, data source managers registered in OpenAIRE, were already giving consent to download, transform and enrich the metadata records, publishing them in the OpenAIRE Research Graph.

With this new implementation in the dashboard interface, managers with data sources registered, can update their consent by logging to PROVIDE in two ways: 

i) when performing the first access after this implementation a pop-up window will appear to update the ToU;
ii) or accessing to the Update / Update the ToU menu of each registered data source.

For new registrations, the acceptance of ToU is made through the registration process in a dedicated step.

We would like to invite you to update the ToU of your data source by accessing the PROVIDE dashboard at https://provide.openaire.eu/.

How to update the Terms of Use

(for data sources already registered
  1. login to OpenAIRE PROVIDE at https://provide.openaire.eu/
  2. access your Data source dashboard
  3. go to the menu "UPDATE" and "UPDATE TERMS OF USE"
  4. read the ToU and select the options according to your preferences

 Objectives of ToU

OpenAIRE harvests bibliographic metadata records and Open Access articles full-text from content providers with a view to carrying out text-mining techniques. OpenAIRE services will apply mining techniques to extract/infer links between research products, such as research data, research software, and other products, and between research products and research grants or communities. Information inferred from metadata and/or full texts will be used to enrich the original metadata record of the publication and made publicly available via the OpenAIRE portal, www.openaire.eu and public APIs. The metadata collected are normalized to make them uniform to the OpenAIRE data model, and best efforts are undertaken to enrich the metadata.

 Benefits for content providers

OpenAIRE increases the visibility of the [ORGANIZATIONs] content provider and its publications by exposing metadata and URLs leading to the provider's web site (provenance information). Moreover, OpenAIRE will provide the provider with APIs to access the enriched metadata. As an option the content provider may benefit from the OpenAIRE Broker Service and be notified of relevant enrichments relative to its records.
