Update your repository compatibility with the latest OpenAIRE Interoperability Guidelines

OpenAIRE Webinar to support repository managers

OpenAIRE is running a repository upgrade campaign to assist the repository managers of the data sources registered in OpenAIRE that are compatible with versions prior to 3.0 and 4.0 of the guidelines, on upgrading their compatibility level.

OpenAIRE is now moving to a new phase of this campaign, that is related to the new Content Acquisition Policy, which will have the following implications: 

  • Only data sources compatible with the OpenAIRE Guidelines version 3.0 and 4.0 for institutional and thematic repositories will be accepted for registration in OpenAIRE; 
  • Repositories currently registered in OpenAIRE compatible with Guidelines DRIVER, v2.0 and v2.0+ will be dismissed from OpenAIRE PROVIDE; 
    • Contents from these repositories will be aggregated by OpenAIRE via BASE. OpenAIRE will not directly collect data from such repositories. 

We invite all interested repository managers to join us in a dedicated Webinar on May 28th at 14h30 CEST, on updating the compatibility level of repositories.

The OpenAIRE technical team will present the details of upcoming actions and will be available to answer all your questions and inquiries.
