Research data: accessible infrastructures and innovative tools in Greece

  • Friday, 23 October 2020

Athena Research Center (ARC) together with Hellenic Academic Libraries Link (HEAL-link) participate in Open Access Week 2020 in the context of activities for OpenAIRE in Greece. The topic of presentations and discussions to take place is research data management. The event is open to all researchers and to members of research organisations in Greece, both in the public and private sector. 


Title: “Research data: accessible infrastructures and innovative tools in Greece”


When: Friday, 23 October 2020

Time: 13:00 p.m - 14:30 p.m

Language: Greek 


The theme of the International Open Access Week 2020, 19-25 October, is “Open with Purpose: Taking Action to Build Structural Equity and Inclusion.” The goal is to raise awareness regarding diversity, equity and inclusion of all research communities and forms of knowledge. By reshaping research and creating systems for sharing knowledge we come across with an opportunity for a more equitable, diverse and open framework for all research communities. In particular, Greece is facing important structural changes that will allow open redistribution of research data and will facilitate implementation of Open Science practices. 


ARC and HEAL-link concentrated this year’s presentations on issues around research data management and personal data. The presentations will focus on national research data repositories, highlighting their contribution to paneuropean cloud infrastructures and their role in an Open Science environment. Finallt, to limit discouragement in following open practices when dealing with sensitive and personal data, the Amnesia tool for  data anonymization will be explained. 

 
 
 
 
 
Open Access Week: Open Science Ambassadors

Open Access Week: Open Science Ambassadors

How can early career researchers boost Open Science? A joint OpenAIRE/Eurodoc webinar.

  • Thursday, 22 October 2020

During this webinar, Oleksandr Berezko (General Board Member at Eurodoc) and Sara Pilia (Equality Working Group Co-coordinator at Eurodoc) will present the Eurodoc Open Science Ambassadors training programme for Early Career Researchers (ECR), and the activities of the Eurodoc Equality Working Group, which aims to remove the barriers encountered by those ECRs who experience exclusion and discrimination. 

Eurodoc

 Eurodoc is the European Council of Doctoral Candidates and Junior Researchers. It is an international federation of 28 national organisations of PhD candidates, and more generally of young researchers from 26 countries of the European Union and the Council of Europe. Eurodoc's mission is to advocate for positive change in the policies, culture and environment that affect the quality of training, well-being and employment conditions of early career researchers (ECRs). More information. 

Eurodoc Open Science Ambassadors

 The Eurodoc Open Science Ambassador Training is a course designed to train researchers in key practices in Open Science. The course was initially aimed at representatives of early-career researchers from National Associations of Eurodoc to act as ambassadors in their networks and is now freely available for all interested researchers and policy makers. Currently there are 24 Ambassadors located in 18 European countries from Ireland to Azerbaijan. The new Ambassadors cohort will be recruited shortly. More information.  

Eurodoc Equality Working Group 

The Eurodoc Equality Working Group was built to support every ECR in development of their career as a researcher, particularly by helping remove the barriers encountered by those ECRs that experience exclusion related to “diversity”. The Working Group adopts an approach that regards discrimination and exclusion as the result of an intersectionality of multiple causes. At present, it is paying special attention to gender and disability issues as causes of discrimination. More information
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.

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.

Q&A session

Highlight: New students discovery in the Open Schools Journal for Open Science: "Since 2009, Kepler Space Telescope has been recording small reductions (eclipses) in the light of distant stars due to the transit of planets in front of them. Our goal is to detect planets in orbit around distant stars from Kepler's mission data, following the Reading Method using two programs written by our team in programme language C. If the readings are detected and confirmed, we proceed to their analysis. characteristics of the planet: Ray, inclination, distance from the star, and especially if it is in the so-called "habitable zone" which will make it possible to maintain life. However, we have already identified such an exoplanet in orbit around the star KIC 1432789, the characteristics of which our team analyzed for the first time." - from
