Binding policies and research flows, infrastructures and services with people
OpenAIRE, along with our partner EC-funded initiatives OpenUP, OpenMinTeD, and FOSTER, will hold the Open Science Fair in Athens, Greece, on 6-8 September 2017. The aim of the event is to showcase the elements required for the transition to Open Science: e-infrastructures and services, policies as guidance for good practices, research flows and new types of activities (disseminate, mine, review, assess, etc.), and the roles of the respective actors and their networks. Check the programme here.
Recommendations for university leader, Research Funding and Research Performing Organisations from EUA and Science Europe
European University Association (EUA) published recommendations for university leaders and National Rectors’ Conferences on the transition towards full and immediate Open Access. And Science Europe released a Position Statement rethinking the pathways to impact and societal value of research.
Highlights from national workshops and open science sessions, hosted by OpenAIRE NOADs
Read about best practices from various data archives, common problems and researchers’ points of view towards open research data, discussed at the Estonian OpenAIRE international seminar „Open Research Data – the FAIRest Data is the Future of Science”. Follow thought provoking presentations and discussions on the French Law for open access (OA), research data, researchers’ digital identity, OpenAIRE and obligation to deposit; get ideas on how to run lively workshops on OA (how to speak about OA with your aunt Janine at the Christmas dinner for example); and check out a goose game to explain OA while playing (the source files are available on Zenodo) and WillO: a legal tool to assist in depositing in OA repositories. And see highlights from the UK Research Office conference for European Liaison Officers, European research managers, Research Councils and policymakers, where OpenAIRE NOAD hosted the Open Science session.
Researchers can now deposit in the main French open access archive HAL just by a few clicks thanks to Dissemin
Dissemin is a tool encouraging researchers to publish their publications in open access. It allows researchers to measure the accessibility of their publications and put those which are not available yet, online just by a few clicks. No need to manually enter metadata (title, authors or other identifiers), these are automatically filled in by Dissemin.
The Open Science Platform (ICM, University of Warsaw) has recently published a report „Towards Open Research Data in Poland”, by Jakub Szprot, Krzysztof Siewicz and Wojciech Fenrich to launch a debate on this still relatively new topic in Poland.
OpenAIRE NOAD makes the first step in mapping research data management practices in Hungary
Research data has become an increasingly hot topic not only in the international but also in the institutional agendas. This study covers research data management habits, data types, archiving practices, data accessibility and re-usability, relevant legal and ethical questions at the University of Debrecen.
OpenAIRE NOAD conducted a survey on Hungarian repositories
A nationwide survey results provide insights on the the open access rate of content in the repositories, how this content is used to assess and evaluate researchers and how repositories interact with OpenAIRE.
This year's theme of the Digital Infrastructures for Research conference is “Connecting the building blocks for Open Science”
Europe's leading e-infrastructures invite all researchers, developers and service providers to participate to the second edition of Digital Infrastructures for Research conference, which will be held this year in Brussels, Belgium, at the SQUARE meeting centre, from 30 November to 1 December 2017.
Supporting Open Access journal editors and publishers in Serbia and participating in the Western Balkan Working Group on Open Science
SCIndeks is the central hub of the integrated system of quality-controlled scientific publishing in Serbia. The SCIndeks team developed guides and templates to help editorial boards of Serbian Open Access journals to comply with the “new” DOAJ inclusion criteria on publication policy and licensing.
