In order to harvest and connect publications to related EC FP7 grant agreement and calculate the percentage of Open Access versus non-Open Access publications, the OpenAIRE project requires repositories to adapt to the OpenAIRE Guidelines. These are low-barrier requirements for OAI-PMH compliant repositories that build on the oai_dc and DRIVER Guidelines.
When your repository is OpenAIRE compliant, its FP7 funded content is harvested periodically, indexed within the OpenAIRE portal and presented in the OpenAIRE search and browse section. In this way, FP7 funded research results deposited in your repository can achieve wider visibility and distribution – and be read, used and cited more widely by the global research community.
Research managers in your institution will be able to compare your institutional performance in FP7 projects with the performance of other institutions in your country and within the European Union using the OpenAIRE FP7 publication statistics tool. You will also save time for researchers at your institution.
Repositories, successfully harvested by the OpenAIRE, are entitled to display the OpenAIRE logo on their website, to certify quality and the global networked status of their content.
The OpenAIRE project team can help you with your targeted advocacy activities to ensure that high quality content is deposited into your repository and then harvested by the OpenAIRE portal. We reach out to the researchers publishing FP7 funded articles and encourage them to self-archive in your repository.
Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
