Zenodo is an all-purpose open research repository. It was created by OpenAIRE and CERN to provide a place for researchers to deposit publications, datasets and other research artifacts such as code, posters, presentations.... Zenodo does not impose any requirements on format, size, access restrictions or licence and is not restricted to one funder, or one nation. It is free to use for all research outputs from across all fields.
It launched in 2013, allowing researchers in any subject area to upload files up to 50 GB.
Zenodo has integration with GitHub to make code hosted in GitHub citable.
OpenAIRE is a European project supporting Open Science. On the one hand OpenAIRE is an network of dedicated Open Science experts promoting and providing training on Open Science.
On the other hand OpenAIRE is a technical infrastructure harvesting research output from connected data providers. OpenAIRE aims to establish an open and sustainable scholarly communication infrastructure responsible for the overall management, analysis, manipulation, provision, monitoring and cross-linking of all research outcomes.
This combination of knowledge and a pan-European Research Information platform enables us to provide services to researchers, research support organisations, funders and content providers such as:
Integrated scientific information: links publication, project information, datasets... per funder/project/content provider...and presents them in an in one place
Monitor and reporting on OS research outcomes for funders
Training sessions and support on all subjects related to OS and OS policy
Discovery of OS output per project, funder, data provider…
Exchange of metadata and content amongst data providers
OpenAIRE is a partnership of (currently) more than 50 institutions, all working to shape and implement effective OA and Open Science policies. Our network of 34 National Open Access Desk (NOADs), present in every EU country and beyond, are there to reach out to researchers, research coordinators and policy-makers at the local level. Increased awareness at the national level is assured through a range of training and support activities such as holding workshops and webinars, disseminating training materials, and reaching out directly to researchers.
Article Processing Charges (APCs)/Book processing charges (BPCs) are publication fees charged to authors - but often covered by their institution or funder - to make publications immediately open access, and should not be confused with other costs such as page charges or colour print fees. APCs can vary widely, however many Open Access journals do not charge these author fees. So you can avoid APCs and still make your work open access by publishing in such a journal, or by providing open access through self-archiving.
