OpenAIRE-Connect WPs, Tasks, Deliverables

  • The OpenAIRE-Connect Consortium is aware of the attention that should be given to the overall coordination and management of the three interwoven activity areas Networking, Services and Research, in order to deliver and foster uptake of TRL8-quality services. The integration of the three activities will create significant management challenges with concrete and focused milestones in a relative short time-spam and require careful quality monitoring and prevention of risks. Effective management is needed to deal with the complexity required to extract, share and integrate the results of the three activities. In this WP, CNR will address specific aspects of management by braking down the activities onto administrative and scientific and technical coordination, while ARC will be in charge of activities focused on Quality and Risk Management and Exploitation and Sustainability.

  • This work package will focus on reaching out to research communities and content providers to promote the use of OpenAIRE-Connect services. WP2 is concerned with the production and effective distribution of dissemination material, to ensure the widest possible awareness of the project’s diverse outcomes. The Networking activities will contribute to enlarge and empower the community for European and global alignment on Open Science publishing, by extending the OpenAIRE network to research communities and through a closer and deeper work with the OpenAIRE content providers. It will develop a strategy to approach and engage research communities, providing materials & support, promoting the use of the Dashboard. This strategy will be used to attract and content providers, especially OpenAIRE providers, to subscribe to Catch-All Broker Service. It manages OpenAIRE-Connect communication channels.

      T2.5 Exploitation & Sustainability (Leader: ARC)
  • The Work Package will rely on the European network of liaisons with literature repositories, CRIS systems, and data archives and repositories developed by OpenAIRE, as well as collaboration with COAR – Confederation of Open Access Repositories, to foster and advocate best practices of Open Science publishing and leverage the uptake of OpenAIRE-Connect services and adoption of OpenAIRE-Connect guidelines across scientific communication content providers (beyond those involved in the project). Moreover, similar activities will be conducted across research communities in order to identify research communities (beyond the ones initially involved in the project) which could benefit from OpenAIRE-Connect Services and support them at using those services. WP3 addresses support and training to research communities and content providers for uptaking the OpenAIRE-Connect services. OpenAIRE-Connect guidelines for exchanging packages of interlinked research artifacts between scientific communication sources will be developed, taking into consideration and liaising existing activities and initiatives on these aspects and favor solutions that take into account publishing for scientific reward and reproducibility.

  • This WP will complete, extend, and integrate the TRL6 and TRL9 services described in Table 1 of the Concept section to realize the TRL8 technology supporting the Research Community Dashboard Service. The Dashboard will be the result of: firstly, upgrading the OpenAIRE data model and OpenAIRE back-ends to support research methods and packages; secondly, extending OpenAIRE research community portals to include claim, search, access, stats functionalities for research literature, data, methods and artefact packages. Th resulting portals will also include functionalities for configuring mining algorithms to support custom (community-driven) inference of links and for the deposition and DOI minting for research methods and research artefact packages in Zenodo. Finally, the WP will extend OpenAIRE APIs to enable (key-enable) third-party services to push (i.e. publish) packages of interlinked objects within OpenAIRE. All tasks will follow a standard methodology of requirements analysis (involving the research community partners: UniHB, PIN, CNRS, IRD, ICRE8), design, agile development, and deployment with the support with WP6.

  • This WP will deliver the Catch-All Broker Service, capable of serving any kind of content providers with subscription and notification services relative to events regarding research literature, data, methods, packages or interlinks between them. Providers will be able to be notified of any piece of information relative to their collection of artefacts and of interest to them (e.g. links to methods, links to project, links to data). To this aim, the project will work closely with scientific communication content provider partners (Jisc UMinho, UniHB), in order to understand how to extend the OpenAIRE Broker Service for literature (to be released at TRL6 level by June 2016). The service will be extended both at back-end and front-end level to handle the broader domain of research methods and relative packaging and to target content providers of any typology (beyond literature repositories). All tasks will follow a methodology of requirements analysis, prototyping, and agile deployment cycles in coordination with WP6.

  • This WP will upgrade the current maintenance and operation activities underlying the OpenAIRE infrastructure to host and support OpenAIRE-Connect developments. In particular it will focus on: 1) coordinating the life-cycle of the OpenAIRE-Connect services software, 2) careful planning of the Service releases, 3) ensuring deployment and operation of the services, and 4) drafting and implementation of the Data Management Plan.

      T6.3 Data Management (Leader: ICM)
  • This WP is about assessment, adoption, and usage monitoring of the OpenAIRE-Connect services. To this aim the WP will run 7 pilots, 5 relative to the Research Community Dashboard and 2 to the Catch-All Broker Service. ARC and CNR will coordinate the overall activities. In cooperation with the research community partners (UniHB, CNRS, PIN, IRD, ICRE8) and the content provider partners (Jisc, UniHB, UMinho), common testing plans for the use-cases will be identified and the relative assessment questionnaires prepared. Each pilot will identify a pool of users and engage them in two testing sessions. The assessments and recommendations resulting from each session will be returned to WP4 and WP5, the first to refine the BETA services, the second to deliver the production-ready TRL8 technology behind OpenAIRE-Connect services.
