OpenAIRE is pleased to announce the beta release of its Research Graph, a massive collection of metadata and links between scientific products such as articles, datasets, software, and other research products, entities like organisations, funders, funding streams, projects, communities, and data sources. Due to its coverage and cross-discipline nature, the Research Graph will empower the EOSC catalogue of scientific products.
We are collecting feedback! Find out more here.
The webinar will give the opportunity for discussions and questions regarding the new developments.

OpenAIRE Open Innovation Call
In the framework of the OpenAIRE Open Innovation call, the start of the procurement phase was preceded by an open market consultation.
This process represents a specific phase during the overall Open Call preparation, aiming at actively approach the market to find out about the state of the art and current development in the related sector.
The market consultation phase is the initial core activity where the first dialogue between demand and supply-side takes place.
From Open Science to Inclusive Science with Paola Masuzzo
Friday, Oct 25, 2019 from 2pm to 3pm (CEST)
A lot is happening in the Open Science world, as everybody realizes more and more the importance of open, transparent and participatory research practices.
However, we tend to forget, in the ongoing conversations, what Open Science means to different audiences, coming from diverse or even underrepresented backgrounds.
In this webinar, we will be talking about Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Inclusiveness.
Masuzzo will make the case that these are non-negotiable and they must be built into the foundation of what we are all trying to achieve in the ongoing efforts of democratizing knowledge.
This webinar is organised in collaboration with Open Science MOOC
Plan S compliance for Open Access Journals - what we know so far and where we think we're heading by Dominic Mitchell (DOAJ)
In September 2018 when cOAlition S put out their Plan S for making Open Access an immediate reality, there was concern about how journals would become compliant in the short time available and what exactly was required to do that. The guidance mentioned that being indexed in DOAJ is necessary but that is only one criteria of many. There are other, new criteria which are additional to the DOAJ ones. DOAJ, among others, is mentioned as a key player in the certification process so the DOAJ Team have looked very carefully at what is being asked. One of the problems is that the exact data to be captured for those requirements have not yet been set and work by cOAlition S to do that is only slated to start imminently. In this presentation, I will explain what those extra Plan S criteria might be and how we think that they might be measured and captured. I will explain how we think the certification process, at least at DOAJ, might go and what the difference is between DOAJ certification and Plan S certification.
Research Data Management and Legal issues related to research data by S. Venkataraman (DCC) and Thomas Margoni (CREATe)
In this 'double bill' webinar, we first hear about the basic principles of Research Data Management, explained by S. Venkataraman from Digital Curation Centre (DCC). Participants are pointed to essential tools and standards, as well as a number of good practices related to RDM and data management planning.
In the second part of the webinar, Thomas Margoni from CREATe illustrates the legal framework around the complex issue of data ownership and will try to explain in non legal terms what the law says, what researchers need to know, what is the role of Open Science principles in this area, and what kind of supporting material OpenAIRE has produced to assist researchers.

OpenAPC - cost transparency of Open Access publishing by Christoph Broschinski and Andreas Czerniak (UNIBI)
In 2014 the OpenAPC project was established at Bielefeld University Library and has been funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) (2015 - 2018) and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) (2018 - 2020).
In this webinar we focus on how institutions can become part of the OpenAPC project. We briefly discuss the data format and processing and how the concept of transparency is applied to all steps of the data lifecycle in OpenAPC.
In addition, we also focus on benefits for participating institutions. Finally, the re-use of OpenAPC data in other projects is shown, in particular the integration of the OpenAPC data set into the OpenAIRE research graph.
The importance of Persistent Identifiers (PIDs) to build stable connections between research entities such as grants, projects, articles, or funders is recognized and addressed by several initiatives and projects.
When: On January 10, 2019 at 10:00 CET
After all the festivities at the end of the year where family and friends connect, OpenAIRE together with FREYA started off the new year with a webinar on digital connections: the Persistent Identifiers. The Science Europe Data Glossary defines the term Persistent Identifier (PID) as “a long-lasting reference to a digital object — a single file or set of files”. As such, the importance of PIDs to build stable connections between research entities such as grants, projects, articles, or funders is recognized and addressed by several initiatives and projects.
FREYA is a 3-year project funded by the European Commission, aiming to extend the infrastructure for persistent identifiers (PIDs) as a core component of open research, in the EU and globally. FREYA will improve discovery, navigation, retrieval, and access to research resources. In so doing, FREYA has carried out a survey of the current PID landscape, collected a vast amount of user stories in order to identify needs of the community to expand existing and establish new PID services, and is currently working on building a PID Graph.
In the webinar, Ketil Koop-Jakobsen talked about a report on requirements for new PID Services. To identify demands and requirements for emerging PIDs, FREYA collected user stories from their respective communities and networks. More than 70 user stories were compiled, each identifying a specific PID demand from the community. Koop-Jakobsen introduced some of these stories and explained their influence on the development of new and emerging PID types. Amir Aryani, moreover, shed light on FREYA’s work on the PID Graph, talking about the discussion around the concept of the PID Graph itself and how FREYA partners are contributing to the actual setup of such a Graph.
And Iryna Kuchma talked how OpenAIRE uses PIDs for discovery, enrichment, and linking of research results.
The OpenAIRE Content Provider Dashboard is a one-stop-shop web service where content providers (repository, data archive, journal, aggregator, CRIS system) interact with OpenAIRE. It provides the front-end access to many of OpenAIRE's backend services: Register - validate data sources; Enrich the metadata or the content of the data source; Assess - subscribe to the OpenAIRE Usage Statistics service.
This webinar presents the OpenAIRE Content Provider Dashboard, focusing the functionality of content enrichment from which, repository managers are able to enrich their collections with more/missing metadata.
