Episciences implements the Open Science Lens Enhancer
Automated linking at Journal web site
EOSC-DIH business pilots in practice
Challenge & Scenario
The Episciences repository aims to enrich the information provided to the end users, by integrating information available in the OpenAIRE Research Graph, for the Open Science artifacts it hosts. The information is retrieved on demand and contains the most updated information available to facilitate further exploration by the end user. The information enhancement is easily accessible for the end user and does not require extensive, intrusive changes in the repository structure and layout.
Solution & Implementation
Facilitating the integration scenario and use case requirement, the Open Science Lens expanded its operation on integrating sites. A no-code approach enables fine grained, configuration-based control over the web page that hosts Open Science artifacts. This approach enabled pattern based discovery, configurable handling of web page structure and text, extraction of information from unstructured text as well as control over the end result presentation.
After the successful integration of the Open Science Lens Enhancer with the repositories, Episciences now offers to users the ability to explore the wealth of the Open AIRE Research Graph, directly linked to the presented Open Science outcomes. The experience is integrated in a way that it feels like a website native feature.

Episciences is an overlay journal platform that allows researchers to early share openly their research work as a preprint, communicate with the research community their ideas and discoveries, get feedback and claim ownership. The journals hosted by the Episciences platform are diamond open access journals, they adhere to the FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable). Researchers save time, money, and effort, and can focus only on their research. The preprints are hosted by open repositories such as arXiv, HAL, Zenodo and are broadly available to the research community.
