Europe and Latin America expand their collaboration for open science

logoalternatico colorOver a million records of open access publications from Latin America are now discoverable through the OpenAIRE platform. In December 2016, OpenAIRE began harvesting records from LA Referencia, the large regional repository network that aggregates metadata of open access publications. LA Referencia contains over 1.2 million records of open access content from nine countries in Latin America: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Mexico, and Peru. The records provide access to the peer-reviewed journal articles and theses and dissertations in these countries across all research disciplines. This effort integrates the research outputs of the two regions and will significantly raise the visibility of Latin American publications outside the region.

Workshops on Supporting RDM and Open Data

idcc2017 2If you’re supporting researchers to manage and share their data, there are a few useful workshops coming up in early 2017 that may be of interest.

In January, the DCC and DANS will be running two one-day workshops in Amsterdam. On 25th January, the “Developing Research Data Management Services” workshop will introduce participants to the range of services needed, how to establish a business case, and engage researchers to ensure uptake. The following day we will be “Supporting Open Research in Horizon 2020”. This workshop will outline the European Commission’s requirements and give practical advice on how to make data open. Building on DANS and DCC experience in support the EC review of DMPs, the afternoon will focus on a practical exercise reviewing example Horizon 2020 DMPs against an evaluation cribsheet.

FAIR Data in Trustworthy Data Repositories Webinar

When: Monday, 12 December, 2016, Tuesday 13 December 10.00 hours CET

Article text: Courtesy of EUDAT

Everybody wants to play FAIR, but how do we put the principles into practice?

FAIRThere is a growing demand for quality criteria for research datasets. In this webinar we will argue that the DSA (Data Seal of Approval for data repositories) and FAIR principles get as close as possible to giving quality criteria for research data. They do not do this by trying to make value judgements about the content of datasets, but rather by qualifying the fitness for data reuse in an impartial and measurable way. By bringing the ideas of the DSA and FAIR together, we will be able to offer an operationalization that can be implemented in any certified Trustworthy Digital Repository.

In 2014 the FAIR Guiding Principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable) were formulated. The well-chosen FAIR acronym is highly attractive: it is one of these ideas that almost automatically get stuck in your mind once you have heard it. In a relatively short term, the FAIR data principles have been adopted by many stakeholder groups, including research funders.

The FAIR principles are remarkably similar to the underlying principles of DSA (2005): the data can be found on the Internet, are accessible (clear rights and licenses), in a usable format, reliable and are identified in a unique and persistent way so that they can be referred to. Essentially, the DSA presents quality criteria for digital repositories, whereas the FAIR principles target individual datasets.

In this webinar the two sets of principles will be discussed and compared and a tangible operationalization will be presented.
