Open Science in practice in FP9

OpenAIRE has issued some recommendations for solidifying and advancing open science in FP9. 

FP9 is about carrying out research through mission oriented goals, co-creation and co-design, and is about responsible and reproducible research that provides sustainable approaches to societal problems in an ever growing arena of data where fact-checking and evidence policy are in the centre.

It is thus more important than ever to strengthen Open Science in its many incarnations and empower Europe via a collaborative approach to open infrastructures for open science, across all borders and all domains.

OpenAIRE Guidelines provide recommendations to repository and other scientific information data managers about encoding of bibliographic metadata. The guidelines are based on the established and existing practices for different types of content providers:
  • for Literature Repositories using Dublin Core;
  • for Data Repositories using Datacite Schema; and
  • for CRIS systems based on CERIF-XML.
