After a long consultation period, we are pleased to introduce the new version of the OpenAIRE Guidelines for Literature repositories.
The Guidelines are intended to guide repository managers to expose to OpenAIRE open access and non-open access publications together with funding information, where applicable.

They have been gradually improved over the past year, having incorporated comments and feedback received from partners and other initiatives, and the recent developments in OpenAIRE, such as the new Content Acquisition Policy.

What's new?
The Guidelines for Literature Repository Managers v 4.0 introduce the following major changes:
  • Aplication profile and schema based on Dublin Core and DataCite, including a new OAI-metadataPrefix
  • Support of identifier schemes for authors, organisations, funders, and scholarly resources
  • Introduction of COAR Controlled Vocabularies
  • Compliance with the OpenAIRE Content Acquisition Policy
How does this affect you?
By implementing the OpenAIRE Guidelines you enable authors who deposit publications in your repository to fulfill the EC Open Access requirements, and eventually, the requirements of other (national or international) funders with whom OpenAIRE cooperates. Incorporating publications into the OpenAIRE infrastructure for discoverability, and utilising value-added services provided by the OpenAIRE portal are also feasible.
What's next?
In the coming months, OpenAIRE will foster a swift implementation of the Guidelines in the two major repository platforms, DSpace and EPrints.

On the occasion of the launch of the European Open Science Cloud on November 23rd, the European Commission disclosed the list of the people appointed to be members of the EOSC Executive Board.

The call for applications opened at the end of August this year to recruit 11 experts in matters related to research infrastructures representing all stakeholders, with the task to provide advice and support on the implementation of the EOSC: from the rules of participation, to making  research data interoperable and re-usable according to the FAIR principles, to guidance to service provision.

We are very proud to announce that Natalia Manola, Managing Director of OpenAIRE, is among these experts! This appointment is a recognition of the importance of Open Science and what the OpenAIRE infrastructure represents in Europe for the full success of the European Open Science Cloud. The community and network of National Open Access Desks and the rich set of services bring Open Science at all levels of the research life-cycle and assist in the transition to open research and knowledge sharing. The participation in the EOSC Executive Board, in addition to OpenAIRE’s contribution to the EOSC Portal with its services, will support positioning Open Science as a best practice for research in all its nuances, at the core of the European Open Science Cloud.

OpenAIRE participates in the EOSC Executive Board together with other relevant initiatives such as RDA, CESSDA, Science Europe, GÉANT and many others.

The selection criteria together with the full list of the members of the EOSC Executive Board is available on the EC’s website.
