Provide - How to enrich research artifacts

  • What it is

    Content enrichment, one of functionalities from Dashboard for Content providers, is a powerful tool that enables Content providers to enrich research artifacts with additional metadata, through the OpenAIRE Notification Broker Service.

    The Broker service supports:

    • the exchange of metadata and content amongst repositories, publishers or aggregators, and
    • the enrichment of repository local metadata.
    It is a subscription-notification service operating on top of the OpenAIRE Graph, a de-duplicated, enriched, linked, open scholarly communication graph. Repository managers subscribe to notifications (events) of interest via a Web application (provided in the OpenAIRE Content Provider Dashboard).
  • What it does

    With OpenAIRE Broker Service Dashboard, Repository Managers can:
    • Monitor all their repositories
    • View the results suggested by the information graph
    • Subscribe to notifications for enrichments and additions, relevant to their repository, appearing at the OpenAIRE information space graph
    Broker Service identifies:
    • Missing or additional metadata values: e.g.,
      - abstracts identified in duplicate publications,
      - subjects identified via classification algorithms,
      - PIDs (PCMID, DOI),
      - linked projects from other funders.
    • Other versions of the publication
    • Related publications, cited data or software 
    Broker service main functionalities:
