Open Access Week: Towards a scholarly commons

Open Access Week: Towards a scholarly commons

Platform interoperability and open access transformation

  • Thursday, 22 October 2020

What does it mean to be a part of the scholarly commons? According to FORCE11, the scholarly commons is an agreement among researchers and other stakeholders in scholarly communication to make research open and participatory for anyoneanywhere. It is not another sharing platform, but a set of principlesconcrete guidance to practice, and actions towards inclusivity of diverse perspectives from around the globe.

In this webinar, we investigate OpenAIRE's role in achieving this scholarly commons, through our work concerning the OpenAIRE Guidelines on metadata interoperability, as well as publication models and services for the Open Access Transformation.

Open Access Week: Public release of the OpenAIRE-DARIAH Community gateway

How to make your research more visible and more connected

  • Tuesday, 20 October 2020

A paramount challenge in present-day knowledge production is to communicate research results in ways that align with our increasingly digital and also increasingly diverse research workflows.

Research discovery platforms that have been developed from EU grants and will remain open to the public are game changers in this respect. They support the visibility and discoverability of all sorts of research outputs (datasets, software, protocols,  teaching materials etc.) to showcase a broader view of scholarship and enable a greater transparency of scholarly communication.

This webinar aims to introduce an instance of them, the OpenAIRE-DARIAH Community Gateway. Built on the top of the OpenAIRE Research Graph, the OpenAIRE Community Gateways  work as single access points to a virtual space that connects metadata descriptions of all scholarly objects that are important to the given community.

The DARIAH dashboard brings together publications and a broad range of research data (digital critical editions, plain text, archived data, audiovisual data, raw data, encoded documents, software applications, source code, images, structured graphics, databases, structured text, scientific and statistical data formats) that are hosted by DARIAH services such as NAKALA and TextGrid. As such, it significantly reduces the fragmentation of DARIAH research outputs across the web. A major benefit of such a discovery environment is that it provides scholarly communities with a single entry point to DARIAH-affiliated research outputs. This entry point, in turn, is embedded into the context of a bigger collection of Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage corpus enabling therefore arts and humanities researchers to find DARIAH outputs more easily, as an integral part of their discovery routine.

The webinar welcomes all the DARIAH communities, including humanities scholars, librarians, research support professionals, service providers and national representatives.

Interoperability in EOSC: OpenAIRE Guidelines for repositories

  • Thursday, 11 June 2020

Athena Research Center and University of Cyprus Library, in the context of joint activities performed for OpenAIRE and NI4OS-Europe, organize a webinar to inform about repositories’ interoperability within the EOSC ecosystem. The webinar is part of the regular series of the Greek and Cypriot NOADs that aim to spread awareness to and facilitate adoption of important and relevant Open Science principles by their academic and research communities. 

This month the focus is on best practices for institutional and thematic repositories and on compliance with standards and protocols that enable effective and lossless information exchange between heterogeneous systems.


When? Thursday, 11 June 2020

Time: 11.00 am - 12.00 pm EEST


Language of presentation: Greek

Target audience: Repository managers


We are pleased to announce that guest speakers of this webinar are Antonis Lempesis and Stefania Martziou, Research Associates at Athena Research Center and members of the OpenAIRE technical team. 


Accessing scientific results which are available on digital infrastructures, such as repositories, is an important Open Science practice. Adoption of policies and standards as well as training for using repositories enhance, among other things, accessibility, findability and reusability of scientific outputs. Lately, there is a growing need for research data and services/ infrastructures which produce, share and preserve this data to follow the FAIR principles. However, data heterogeneity could have a negative effect on interoperability of systems. A solution to this challenge is provided by OpenAIRE for over ten years now, through specialised services which are also supported by NI4OS-Europe and EOSC. 


Repository managers will have the opportunity to be informed and explore:

  • the OpenAIRE Guidelines for enhancing interoperability
  • the Validator service for assessing repositories’ interoperability
  • the Repository Dashboard: a web service for content providers
 
 
 
Amnesia

Amnesia

the OpenAIRE data anonymization tool

  • Wednesday, 10 June 2020

Speaker: Manolis Terrovitis (Athena Research Centre)
Date: June 10th 2020
Time: 2 PM CEST


Amnesia is a flexible data anonymization tool that transforms relational and transactional databases to dataset where formal privacy guaranties hold. Amnesia transforms original data to provide k-anonymity and km-anonymity: the original data are transformed by generalizing (i.e., replacing one value with a more abstract one) or suppressing values to achieve the statistical properties required by the anonymization guaranties. Amnesia employs visualization tools and supportive mechanisms to allow non expert users to anonymize relational and object-relational data. 

Amnesia is implemented in java and javascript and it can be used as a standalone application or as a service. Moreover, it provides a ReST service API to allow the incorporation of its anonymization engine to other information systems. The tool is available through OpenAIRE and it has been used in several research projects including MEDA and MyHealthMyData.

 

Dr. Manolis Terrovitis  is a Researcher at the Information Management Systems Institute (IMSI) of Research Center Athena. His research work includes big data analytics, data privacy and anonymization methods. He received his PhD from the National Technical University of Athens (2007) and has been with the Department of Computer Science of The University of Hong Kong as a post-doctoral researcher (2007-2008). In 2009 he joined IMSI, first as a post-doctoral researcher and then as a Researcher. Google Scholar reports over 1900 citations to his work, which includes publications to some of the most prestigious venues in data management (VLDB, VLDBJ, TKDE etc). He has served as president of the Hellenic Accreditation System and a member of the Board of Directors of Information Society S.A. He head of Amnesia development in Athena RC and he has been involved in several national and EU funded R&D projects.  He has worked as a consultant at the private and public sector on the design and performance optimization of information systems and he is working as a Data Protection Officer in the National Network for Precision Medicine in Cardiology and in Oncology. Moreover, he has extensive experience on the application of privacy-by-design principles in the information ecosystems.
