Data2Paper Scholix Integration

Introduction to Data2paper ‘ Data2Paper ’ is a ‘one-click’ process to streamline the data paper publication workflow. Metadata about a dataset (together with a link to the dataset itself) are transferred from a data repository, via a cloud-based helper app which allows the addition of methodological detail, to a relevant publisher as a data paper submission. The app leverages DataCite DOI and ORCID functionality to avoid data re-entry, saving time and avoiding errors. If accepted and published, ...

Blogpost by Open Knowledge Maps A massive 2.4 million research projects from around the world are listed in the OpenAIRE database. But getting an overview of project outputs can be tedious: you are often faced with lengthy reports and outdated project websites, especially when the project has already finished. This leads to a situation that you probably encountered before - it is almost impossible to get a complete and clear picture of what has been produced in some of the most important project...
