COAR and OpenAIRE: Enhancing the Interoperability of Repositories for International Research

Bird of Feather session at OR 2010

Wednesday, July 7, 2010 @ 17:30 - 19:00


Interoperability of open access repositories enhances the visibility of research outputs and adds value to repositories. Therefore, the development and implementation of interoperable standards and consistent policies is important for international repository initiatives.

The “Confederation of Open Access Repositories” (COAR) promotes the interoperability of open access (OA) repositories on an international scale. This is based on the ideas and expertise of now about 50 members and partners world-wide. COAR supports the coordination of global collaborative efforts towards high-quality data and interoperable systems. With its actions COAR aims to support regional and national repository initiatives, to disseminate best practices and to facilitate the discussion on interoperability.

OpenAIRE develops a framework for a European-wide network of repositories to support the implementation of the EU’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) Open Access Pilot and the ERC Scientific Council’s Guidelines for Open Access. The three-year project builds up a portal and e-infrastructure for repository networks, supports researchers in depositing their publications and explores data management services.

In this session you will have the opportunity to meet members and partners of both initiatives to join the discussion about areas for collaboration.
