What are the elements required in the transition to open access? How do we change the culture to publish research in a more open manner? What tools and services are needed to support research? These and other key topics will be presented over the three day Open Science FAIR 2017 Conference that will be held in and recently built Stavros Niarchos Cultural Center under the auspices of the National Library of Greece. We want your active participation. Check out the call for workshops and posters.
Another milestone in supporting Open Science for the OpenAIRE/CERN open repository
We are pleased to announce the launch of DOI versioning support in Zenodo - the open research repository from OpenAIRE and CERN. This new feature enables users to update the record’s files after they have been made public and researchers to easily cite either specific versions of a record or to cite, via a top-level DOI, all the versions of a record. Find out more about the inner-workings of this innovative development!
Envisioning the elements of a European Open Science Platform
An exciting recent article on the LSE Impact Blog proposes a European Open Access Platform for research. We here discuss the challenges in instatiating a truly open version of such a platform, and here how OpenAIRE is already contributing to make such a vision a reality.
OpenAIRE and ICSU World Data System announce cooperation to advance Open Science
OpenAIRE and the ICSU World Data System (ICSU-WDS) have proudly announced the signing of an agreement to strengthen existing collaborations in the field of research data and to further develop joint activities to support the Open Science agenda. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between the organizations clearly states their intention to coordinate efforts in areas of mutual interest. Find out more about how these international initiatives will collaborate more closely in future to advance Open Science and research data interoperability.
Bringing together the building blocks of Open Science
Open Science services out of the box? OpenAIRE-Connect is an H2020 EC project that introduces and implements the concept of "Open Science as a Service" (OSaaS) on top of the OpenAIRE infrastructure, by introducing out-of-the-box, on-demand deployable tools in support of Open Science.
An interview with Carlos Galan-Diaz, Research Impact Officer at Glasgow University
How do researchers reflect on their own practices when it comes to their research? What are the ways we could support them for unsterstanding or measuring non-academic (and academic) impact? Discover the Personal Impact Plan developed at University of Glasgow to help their researchers measuring their academic and non-academic research impact.
