Four billion software files are open to all: the Software Heritage archive is finally online!

Software heritage logo title.2048pxOn the Software Heritage archive portal, more than 4 billion files from more than 80 million origins are available since June 7, 2018, date of the official opening ceremony held at the UNESCO, in the presence of sponsors and partners of Software Heritage. 

The Software Heritage archive plays an important role in Open Science: it preserves software source code, ensuring it will be accessible in the long term, and provides intrinsic persistent identifiers for software artefacts that enable not only access, but also verifiable integrity, contributing to making reproducibility and assessment of science more resilient.

EOSC-hub and OpenAIRE-Advance get together to support Open Science and the European Open Science Cloud initiative

 eosc hub 1

Two flagship EC initiatives, OpenAIRE-Advance and EOSC-hub open a new exciting chapter in their collaboration with the signing of their collaboration agreement on Monday, 30 April 2018. The agreement solidifies the projects’ ambition for Europe to become a global leader in digital and open science to ensure that scientists reap the full benefits of open data-driven science. Science requires a joint effort and new tools are needed to harness all the relevant information within the research process, while delivering easy ways to implement open science. Together, we will provide a set of services and resources that will become part of the EOSC (European Open Science Cloud).

Convergent but diverse, a unique effort.

Recommendation on access to and preservation of Scientific Information

data cloud 4x3The European Commission has released a new set of recommendations to the Member States that offer guidance and propose the best way to implement and support open science practices.  The new recommendations include sections on incentives, rewards and require action plans from member states with concrete and measurable objectives. They are to replace the recommendations of 2012  which set out clear guidelines as to how publically funded work should be made openly and freely available. This was followed by a robust mandate regarding the EC H2020 open access policy requirements, in which, as well as its many other activities in Open Science, OpenAIRE has played a strong and informed part, especially in its outreach activity. The social infrastructure that comprises National Open Access Desks (NOADs) in each Member State (and beyond) ensures an effective support mechanism for the mandate and implementation of the recommendations.

OpenAIRE welcomes these new sets of recommendations, and the commitment to open science that the EC wishes to promote among Member States. OpenAIRE has embraced these changes already by being active in these areas in the new phase of its project funding, OpenAIRE Advance.

eosc hub

When: May 15, 2018 from 13.00 to 14.00 CEST
Where: https://join.onstreammedia.com/go/eifl/fairrdm
Registration: https://goo.gl/forms/LFiwFNWegWDhHvpi2
Target audience: researchers, research support staff, data librarians 

Worldwide there is an astonishing number of tools and services to “do something” with your research data, for instance, to make them FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable).
How do you choose what can be useful for you?
Step 1: find out and explore what your organisation provides.
Step 2: attend this webinar! 
We’ll present a selection of services provided by EOSC-hub, OpenAIRE Advance and others and map them to the research data lifecycle. Furthermore, we’ll pay attention to data management planning and to the balance between Open data and FAIR data.

Presenters: Ellen Leenarts (DANS/ EOSC-hub project) and Marjan Grootveld (DANS/ OpenAIRE Advance project)

ellen leenartsEllen Leenarts has joined DANS-KNAW in February 2016. She has been involved in European projects as CESSDA SAW, EUDAT, EHRI and OpenAIRE. Recently she joined the project teams of OpenAIRE Advance, EOSC hub and EOSCpilot mainly because of her lifelong experience in Education and Training. Last year she led the CESSDA RDM project that produced the online Expert tour guide on Data Management.




marjan grootveldMarjan Grootveld is senior policy consultant at DANS in The Netherlands (dans.knaw.nl/en/). DANS promotes sustained access to digital research data and encourages researchers to archive and reuse data. Marjan was training manager in EUDAT and has been involved in OpenAIRE data management support for some years. She is also one of the coaches of the training “Essentials 4 Data Support”, which DANS and partners offer under the umbrella of “Research Data Netherlands” (datasupport.researchdata.nl/en/). Marjan loves FAIR data, but is sceptical of the buzzword…
