OpenAIRE Guidelines for CRIS Managers 1.2.0 released

Ensuring compatibility with OpenAIRE and EOSC

OpenAIRE and euroCRIS released the version 1.2.0 of the OpenAIRE Guidelines for CRIS Managers, which is available on Zenodo and on GitHub; it can also be read online at

This new release of the Guidelines extends the set of information that can be interchanged, incorporates updated versions of related semantic vocabularies and finetunes several details of the information exposure. 

The Guidelines provide orientation for CRIS managers to expose their metadata in a way that is compatible with the OpenAIRE infrastructure as well as the EOSC. Also serves as an example of a CERIF-based (Common European Research Information Format) standard for information interchange between individual CRISs and other research e-Infrastructures.

Update the compatibility level of your repository to get onboarded in the EOSC catalogue

Find out why you should upgrade

If your data source is not yet compatible with the most recent version of the OpenAIRE Guidelines, you should consider updating the compatibility level. Being compatible with the OpenAIRE Guidelines for Literature, institutional, and thematic Repositories 4.0 and 3.0, for Data Archives or for CRIS Managers v1.1, your data source is complying with one of the inclusion criteria to onboard research products in EOSC.

Ensuring the compatibility with the latest versions of the guidelines, you are contributing to improve the interoperability of your data source, as well as to its FAIRness. Meeting the latest IT and repository standards your data source content is more contextualised (links and relationships to other types of research outcomes and entities, such as PIDs), more flexible (different and improved vocabularies), as well as more embedded in the R&I ecosystem (alignment with Open Science mandates and standards and support for well-established metadata schemas, namespace abbreviations).

OpenAIRE is your entry/gateway to EOSC. If you are compatible with the latest versions of the OpenAIRE Guidelines, then you will be onboarding the EOSC Portal Catalogue and Marketplace integrated platform.
