Discover OpenCitations, an infrastructure for open bibliographical metadata

  • Friday, 28 October 2022

OAweek22 OpenCitations

Session held during the International Open Access Week 2022. View the OpenAIRE programme.

OpenCitations has been established as a community-guided open infrastructure to provide access to global scholarly bibliographic and citation data. Its role within the OpenAIRE-Nexus project is that of providing open bibliographic citations, and interconnecting data and integrating functionalities with the OpenAIRE Research Graph and more OpenAIRE-Nexus services. In this talk, OpenCitations’ Responsible for the Technical Infrastructure Ivan Heibi will present the integrations that have already been accomplished, and the future integrations and developments.

The OpenAIRE MONITOR Institutional dashboard

  • Thursday, 27 October 2022


Session held during the International Open Access Week 2022. View the OpenAIRE programme.

The reliable and timely monitoring and evaluation of research activities is indispensable for the efficient allocation of resources and the overall decision-making processes for every organisation conducting scholarly research. Built upon the OpenAIRE research graph, the OpenAIRE Monitor Institutional Dashboard, a tailor-made data and visualization service of OpenAIRE allows organizations to get a 360º view of their research outcomes, monitor their Open Science compliance, discover Open Science trends, measure impact, discover trends, connections and collaborations and overall turn data into insights, so as to improve and optimize their future actions. The data from repositories and other content providers, passing through the OpenAIRE Research pipeline to be aggregated, deduplicated, enriched and cleaned, is the steppingstone for providing accurate and timely indicators, and a well-rounded monitoring dashboard.

OpenAIRE EXPLORE: Discovering research with focus on Sustainable Development Goals and Fields of Science classifications

  • Wednesday, 26 October 2022


Session held during the International Open Access Week 2022. View the OpenAIRE programme.

OpenAIRE EXPLORE is a discovery portal of Open Science scholarly works that is built on top of the OpenAIRE Research Graph.  OpenAIRE embraces the need of open scholarly works mapping with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) classification and the Fields of Science taxonomy. These classifications assist to view contributions of research towards complex challenges for  humanity such as climate change, biodiversity loss, pollution and poverty reduction.

In this workshop you will find out how SciNoBo - the Science No Borders team from our partner, Athena Research Center and its Artificial Intelligence stack - applies advanced Natural Language Processing and Graph Machine Learning technologies to provide  FoS and SDG annotations to enhance the research products of the OpenAIRE Research Graph and how this new knowledge discovery pathway is now available through OpenAIRE EXPLORE.

Aurora and OpenAIRE: CONNECTing research and SDG

  • Tuesday, 25 October 2022


Session held during the International Open Access Week 2022. View the OpenAIRE programme.

OpenAIRE CONNECT enables institutions, universities, or lead teams on a scientific domain, to easily create, configure and manage their own customised web portals (aka gateways) for the discovery of research outcomes that are of interest to their audiences. 
Thanks to its high configurability, a CONNECT Gateway can be customized with the community identity and be a single entry point to the research products relevant for the community among everything that is available in the OpenAIRE Research Graph. 
Monitoring the contribution to SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) is now easier than ever thanks to the specific filter, but more amazing features are yet to come thanks to the collaboration between Aurora and OpenAIRE. 
Aurora is a partnership of like-minded and closely collaborating research intensive European universities, who use their academic excellence to drive societal change and contribute to the sustainable development goals.

Discover the Aurora gateway (https://aurora.openaire.eu) and how the teams are collaborating to monitor Open Science and the research impact on SDGs.

The OpenAIRE Research Graph, supporting evidence based R&I indicators

  • Monday, 24 October 2022

OAweek22 OpenAIREResearch Graph

Session held during the International Open Access Week 2022. View the OpenAIRE programme.

The OpenAIRE Research Graph (ORG) is an Open Access dataset including metadata about different entities that are part of the research lifecycle, such as publications, dataset, software, RPOs, grants, with links among them. This session will highlight how the information in the ORG can support the calculation of Research and Innovation indicators focusing on the use cases under development in the IntelComp project, where the indicators will allow to get insights from current practices, assess the impact and spot the trends in Science, Technology and Innovation.

UsageCounts: Complementing traditional scholarly impact indicators with usage activity

  • Wednesday, 13 July 2022
 13072022 UsageCounts webinar


This is an informative and educative webinar, where we will present OpenAIRE's UsageCounts, the OpenAIRE service that contributes towards impact evaluation of usage activity in Open Access Content Providers.

UsageCounts gathers raw usage activity and consolidated usage statistics reports respectively, for OpenAIRE Research Graph products and from the network of OpenAIRE content providers (repositories, e-journals, CRIS, national aggregators, etc.). It builds and deploys usage statistics across the above distributed network and provides significant added value for different stakeholders.

Webinar Learning Outcomes (agenda):

  • UsageCounts service in OpenAIRE infrastructure.
  • UsageCounts service architecture and workflows.
  • UsageCounts service registration, configuration and deployment.
  • Usage Statistics as a tool for scholarly output assessment.
  • COUNTER CoP Standard.
  • UsageCounts service as an EOSC core service.
  • Discussion on engagement with UsageCounts, potential issues and user concerns.
