New Portal. New Features. New Look.

The OpenAIRE team has been busy over the past few months. 

We brought our database up to speed with EC’s H2020 data so you can use OpenAIRE to report your research outcomes to EC's participant portal.

We now have 12.3 mi OA publications, an increase of almost 1 mi from June. With intensified text mining efforts we were able to identify many more links to projects and datasets: for FP7 more than 200K publications and 3K related data items. That’s a lot of free research at your fingertips!

... and a many more new features which include a responsive design, new login mechanisms, clearer navigation with lots of how-to's, straighforward tools for linking your research...

OpenAIRE Interoperability Workshop

120 delegates gathered in University of Minho (Braga, Portugal) last week (February 7/8) to attend a workshop on Interoperability. The purpose of the workshop was to showcase the new set of OpenAIRE guidelines and to discuss and get input onto OpenAIRE’s approach to harvesting metadata. This was in addition to the wider aim of discussion the challenging issue of interoperability within the open access world and repositories. We invited therefore representatives of a range of communities to present on how they see themselves fitting into the knowledge landscape: CRIS, DataCite, publishers, data repositories, EUDAT, research infrastructures, and ultimately, from an OpenAIRE point of view, how we can potentially work together with them.

The breakout groups were a chance to see how the guidelines reflected on other initiatives, and get input into issues such as grant ID encoding, licensing considerations, and some decisions were made such as who and how to harvest in terms of data.

The 2-day event also started off with an open science session, including delegates from the Open Knowledge Foundation and Geoffrey Boulton, who widened the perspective beyond the research institution on this challenging debate.
