This is an informative and educative webinar, where we will present OpenAIRE's UsageCounts, the OpenAIRE service that contributes towards impact evaluation of usage activity in Open Access Content Providers.
UsageCounts gathers raw usage activity and consolidated usage statistics reports respectively, for OpenAIRE Research Graph products and from the network of OpenAIRE content providers (repositories, e-journals, CRIS, national aggregators, etc.). It builds and deploys usage statistics across the above distributed network and provides significant added value for different stakeholders.
Webinar Learning Outcomes (agenda):
The aim of this public webinar was to present the Monitoring Dashboard (https://monitor.openaire.eu/) that allows institutions to track research activities, their performance, and ultimately their impact across key dimensions such as Open Science policy uptake, European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), collaborations, reach and visibility, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and so on.
As part of the OpenAIRE Monitor – an on-demand service, built upon the OpenAIRE Research Graph, with the mission to offer reliable and timely monitoring and evaluation of research activities for different types of organizations - The institutional Dashboard aims to assist institutions to turn data into insights, thus revealing weak spots and hidden potential and leading the way to evidence-based decision making.
WHEN: 21 June 2022
TIME: 11h00 CEST
This OpenAIRE Webinar aims to present the Open Science Observatory (https://osobservatory.openaire.eu/), a plataform that presents a collection of indicators and visualizations that help interested stakeholders (policy makers and research administrators among others) better understand the Open Science landscape in Europe across countries.
This platform assists the monitoring, and consequently the enhancing, of open science policy uptake across different dimensions of interest, revealing weak spots and hidden potential. Based on the OpenAIRE Research Graph, following open science principles and an evidence-based approach, the indicators can be used to provide timely and reliable insights on the evolution of open science in Europe and assist in promoting good practices.
WHEN: 15 December, 2021
TIME: 11h - 12h CET
This webinar presented the OpenAPC, an OpenAIRE-Nexus service that collects information from organizations like universities and provides them detailed information on the publishing costs of an article or book (APC and BPC).
WHEN: 6 October, 2021
TIME: 11h - 12h CEST
For the third consecutive year, the National Open Access Desks for Greece and Cyprus continue their joint efforts to inform and update the research and academic communities in their countries about important Open Science aspects.
This webinar presented the pan-European electronic infrastructure for Open Science - OpenAIRE and the European Open Science Cloud - EOSC. The webinar was supported also by the NI4OS-Europe project.
Lately, there is a rapid change in the field of Research and Innovation (R&I) in Europe. The adoption of the Open Science model by the European Commission has channelled open standards into national research settings. Complementary to new policies that are created, EOSC is being developed aiming to become the European research web which incorporates good practices and interconnects with national R&I ecosystems by design. Research infrastructures are called to support data-driven research and adapt to the new reality that adds value to their services.
The presentation informed about OpenAIRE, its continuous activity in the European Research Area for more than 10 years now and its evolution into a legal entity based in Greece. It also helped to provide a better understanding of EOSC and its operation, and communicated how OpenAIRE and NI4OS-Europe assist its implementation. In addition, it highlighted the changes brought by EOSC in various R&I areas and explained how everyday activities of researchers will be performed as well as what measures are underway to fully support the research process in all its dimensions.
“COVID-19: best practices, tools and contact points in Greece”
Athena Research Center (ARC), in the context of activities undertaken between OpenAIRE National Open Access Desk, RDA National Node and ELIXIR-GR, organises a new series of informative and educational webinars around COVID-19 research. The digital events are taking place in collaboration with the following scientific institutions: National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, National Center for Research & Technology Hellas, Hellenic Pasteur Institute, Biomedical Sciences Research Center “Alexander Fleming”, Biomedical Research Foundation of the Academy of Athens, Foundation for Research and Technology Hellas, Hellenic Academic Libraries Link, and the research infrastructure Inspired-RIs.
Τhe new series of digital events follows the first webinar held in April that aimed at collecting and promoting all efforts and knowledge around managing the virus crisis to the Greek scientific and academic community. This time, the purpose focuses, also, on knowledge exchange based on Open Science practices and on training in research data management and software development. Indicative subject areas to be covered are:
The first two informative events will be carried out on Thursday 5 November and Friday 6 November at 12.00 - 14.00 p.m EET. During these webinars, the above mentioned institutions and research infrastructures will present the latest developments regarding their activities.
