OpenAIRE x NI4OS-Europe series: Designing privacy and repository policies with RePol

  • Monday, 28 March 2022

OpenAIRE in Greece and Cyprus continue to inform the research and academic community on important aspects related to Open Science, this time through a series of webinars run in collaboration with the NI4OS-Europe project.

March is dedicated to the presentation of the tools developed in the framework of NI4OS-Europe for various groups and individuals interested in Open Science policy implementation and optimal Research Data Management. The purpose is for Universities, Research Infrastructures and Research Services to prepare for the application of Open Science and for its implementation through the European Cloud of Open Science - EOSC. Similarly, researchers will be supported in Optimal Research Data Management, with an emphasis on legal issues pertaining to various types of copyright in data, multimedia, software and derivative content.

The presence of service policies, and privacy and repository policies in particular, is increasingly expected by end-users, mandated by regulators and assessors and required for service certification. They also define a set of rules and practices that the organisational management, repository administrators and the technical staff need to establish and enforce. Here, practical guidance on the use of RePol, an open-source web tool developed within NI4OS-Europe, will be provided. RePol helps the user to create and maintain a comprehensive and clear repository policy or privacy policy for a web-based service. Through a step-by-step wizard and self-explanatory forms, the user shapes a customised policy document formulated in line with the current best practice. With such a policy, the resource owner can more easily align the service with GDPR requirements as well as those for onboarding and participation in open-science infrastructures. The resulting document may be downloaded as an XML file, additionally customized or manually edited before it is integrated into the service or repository. Individual policy elements are provided in a machine-readable format, allowing for an automated interpretation of created policies and metadata extraction.

OpenAIRE x NI4OS-Europe series: Rules of Participation Legal & Ethics Compliance Tool (RoLECT)

  • Wednesday, 23 March 2022

OpenAIRE in Greece and Cyprus continue to inform the research and academic community on important aspects related to Open Science, this time through a series of webinars run in collaboration with the NI4OS-Europe project.

March is dedicated to the presentation of the tools developed in the framework of NI4OS-Europe for various groups and individuals interested in Open Science policy implementation and optimal Research Data Management. The purpose is for Universities, Research Infrastructures and Research Services to prepare for the application of Open Science and for its implementation through the European Cloud of Open Science - EOSC. Similarly, researchers will be supported in Optimal Research Data Management, with an emphasis on legal issues pertaining to various types of copyright in data, multimedia, software and derivative content.

The understanding of legal and ethics issues arising from the Rules of Participation in the European Cloud for Open Science (EOSC) constitutes a major challenge in the implementation of EOSC. The "EOSC RoP Legal & Ethics Compliance Tool" (RoLECT) has been developed by ATHENA Research Center team in the context of the EU-funded "NI4OS-Europe - National Initiatives for Open Science in Europe" project and is addressed to scientists and professionals wishing to onboard a resource (i.e. services or data) to the EOSC ecosystem. By using this tool, stakeholders have the opportunity to verify before the onboarding process whether their resource complies with the basic legal and ethical standards of the EOSC Rules of Participation.

OpenAIRE x NI4OS-Europe series: License Clearance Tool

  • Wednesday, 16 March 2022

OpenAIRE in Greece and Cyprus continue to inform the research and academic community on important aspects related to Open Science, this time through a series of webinars run in collaboration with the NI4OS-Europe project.

March is dedicated to the presentation of the tools developed in the framework of NI4OS-Europe for various groups and individuals interested in Open Science policy implementation and optimal Research Data Management. The purpose is for Universities, Research Infrastructures and Research Services to prepare for the application of Open Science and for its implementation through the European Cloud of Open Science - EOSC. Similarly, researchers will be supported in Optimal Research Data Management, with an emphasis on legal issues pertaining to various types of copyright in data, multimedia, software and derivative content.

The lack of legal background on re-use and the high cost of license clearance are two common issues that researchers are concerned about regarding the content they produce and especially the creation of derivative results (eg data and multimedia). The "License Clearance Tool" (LCT) developed by ATHENA Research Center in the framework of the NI4OS-Europe project (National Initiatives for Open Science in Europe) supports researchers to meet these needs. LCT aims to facilitate and automate copyright clearing processes involving data, media, software and derivative content.

The changing role of librarians in Open Science

  • Thursday, 24 February 2022

 

The National Open Access Desks for Greece and Cyprus continue their joint efforts to inform and update the research and academic communities in their countries about important Open Science aspects. This time, they collaborate with the Association of Greek Librarians and Information Scientists - A.G.L.I.S. and the Cyprus Association of Librarians – Information Scientists - CALIS. Part of their collaboration is to inform about recent trends in the field of Librarianship and to record the needs of the diverse set of librarians who are members of the two associations. As a result, they aim to effectively contribute in the dissemination and harmonization of good practices promoted at the European and global levels. 

The first webinar of the collaborative scheme focuses on the role of libraries and librarians that is changing in the digital age. The webinar communicates the new roles that are promoted in the field of librarianship, underlining the digital skills in research and open science, and the promotion of services to the wider public, emphasizing on citizen science. 

"The changing role of librarians in Open Science”


Date: Thursday, 24 February 2022

Time: 11.00 a.m - 12.00 p.m EET

Language: Greek

Public: Librarians and library staff (academic, public, school etc.)




The starting point of the event is the broader definition of Open Science and the explication of how libraries are playing a key role in the changing environment of research and education. Having the proper background, structures, and infrastructures, libraries could have the main role in the implementation and the promotion of the different aspects of Open Science. Several libraries in Greece and Cyprus have been active from early in this direction with a variety of activities, within the presentation will be briefly reviewed. 

Next will be a brief overview of EU and Unesco guidelines about the role and the contribution of libraries to the consolidation of Open Science, the action points of libraries, the skills of librarians for the Open Science, as proposed by European organizations, projects, and international collaborations and useful informative and educational material to all the aspects of the field. 

Lastly, the forms of collaborative activities will be linked with the benefits of the open science in which citizens and researchers are broader defined as ‘citizens’ science’. This presentation will be discussed the role of the librarian as the linking point of citizens and researchers, as well as their skills in a period of increasing both citizens' science initiatives and their outcomes (e.g. data, educational resources).
