The EC and a group of national funders take a major step towards Open Access by 2020!
The ambitious race towards the transition to Open Access and Open Science is on! OpenAIRE supports Plan S and its aim of full and immediate Open Access by 2020. The group of European funders, including the EC and ERC, demand that research results funded by them must be published in compliant Open Access journals or platforms.
A new series of webinars and tutorials is coming! Have a look at the agenda for the Open Access Week 2018: five full days of training, jointly organised by OpenAIRE and FOSTER, will lead you through different tracks to deepen your knowledge of Open Access and Open Science.
Take a look at five innovative ideas for improving Open Science
Streamlining the publication process, getting a clear picture of your research output. These are just some of the mini-projects that came out of OpenAIRE’s call to advance Open Science workflows. Read on to find out more about five interesting ideas on how to make the most out of OpenAIRE’s index of over 22 mill publications, 600k datasets and 700k grant ids.
A survey on OpenAIRE from the Finnish repository perspective
A recent survey sent out to Finnish repository managers, maps their views on and experiences with OpenAIRE and the benefits of being OpenAIRE compatible. One of the most interesting results of the survey was that while being compliant with OpenAIRE guidelines improves visibility, the repositories support stronger national coordination in OpenAIRE harvesting. Coordination is seen as a solution against laborious and duplicate metadata work.
Towards a common and trusted environment for practising Open Science
The EOSCpilot is the first project towards the realisation of the EC’s vision for a common and trusted environment for practising Open Science. Part of the project’s activities is a Policy Work Package aiming to develop an EOSC tailored Policy Framework complemented by a number of services to support this venture. It will facilitate operational and strategic priorities set by the EOSC in the areas of Open Science and Open Scholarship.
