UsageCounts, the usage statistics service of OpenAIRE: Complementing traditional scholarly impact indicators with usage activity

  • Wednesday, 13 July 2022
 13072022 UsageCounts webinar

 

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):

  • UsageCounts service in OpenAIRE infrastructure.
  • UsageCounts service architecture and workflows.
  • UsageCounts service registration, configuration and deployment.
  • Usage Statistics as a tool for scholarly output assessment.
  • COUNTER CoP Standard.
  • UsageCounts service as an EOSC core service.
  • Discussion on engagement with UsageCounts, potential issues and user concerns.

OpenAIRE x NI4OS-Europe series: License Clearance Tool

  • Wednesday, 16 March 2022

OpenAIRE in Greece and Cyprus continue to inform the research and academic community on important aspects related to Open Science, this time through a series of webinars run in collaboration with the NI4OS-Europe project.

March is dedicated to the presentation of the tools developed in the framework of NI4OS-Europe for various groups and individuals interested in Open Science policy implementation and optimal Research Data Management. The purpose is for Universities, Research Infrastructures and Research Services to prepare for the application of Open Science and for its implementation through the European Cloud of Open Science - EOSC. Similarly, researchers will be supported in Optimal Research Data Management, with an emphasis on legal issues pertaining to various types of copyright in data, multimedia, software and derivative content.

The lack of legal background on re-use and the high cost of license clearance are two common issues that researchers are concerned about regarding the content they produce and especially the creation of derivative results (eg data and multimedia). The "License Clearance Tool" (LCT) developed by ATHENA Research Center in the framework of the NI4OS-Europe project (National Initiatives for Open Science in Europe) supports researchers to meet these needs. LCT aims to facilitate and automate copyright clearing processes involving data, media, software and derivative content.

Open Science Observatory: Understanding the European open science landscape

  • Wednesday, 15 December 2021

Webinar OS Observatory

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.

OpenAIRE and EOSC: interactions and contribution to Open Science

  • Thursday, 18 February 2021

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.

Ciclo di 4 webinar per conoscere i principi della scienza aperta e approfondire aspetti e strumenti specifici per ottemperare agli obblighi della Commissione Europea. Il corso è riservato ai beneficiari di progetti di ricerca H2020 o Horizon Europe.

banner corso finanziamenti europei V5

Da tempo la Commissione Europea ha abbracciato l’Open Science e la sua visione partecipativa e collaborativa del lavoro scientifico. Tutti i beneficiari di fondi europei per la ricerca sono tenuti a rispettare le richieste in fatto di Open Access alle pubblicazioni, ai dati o ad altri prodotti del lavoro di ricerca. 

In concreto rendere disponibili i prodotti della ricerca significa fare scelte ponderate, saper distinguere le alternative disponibili e gli strumenti da usare. Nonché conoscere le motivazioni che guidano la scelta di un modello aperto e trasparente di comunicazione scientifica tra pari. 

Il National Open Access Desk di OpenAIRE per l’Italia organizza, in collaborazione con il Competence Center di ICDI, un corso indirizzato ai coordinatori di progetti H2020 e Horizon Europe, in cui approfondire tutte le principali questioni su Open Science e Open Access legate ai finanziamenti europei.

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.
