OpenAIRE-Nexus brings in Europe, EOSC and the world a set of services to implement and accelerate Open Science. To embed in researchers workflows, making it easier for them to accept and uptake Open Science practices of openness and FAIRness. To give the tools to libraries, research communities to make their content more visible and discoverable. To assist policy makers to better understand the environment and ramifications of Open Science into new incentives, scientific reward criteria, impact indicators, so as to increase research and innovation potential. To foster innovation, by providing SMEs with open data about scientific production. To this aim, OpenAIRE-Nexus onboards to the EOSC fourteen services, provided by public institutions, einfrastructures, and companies, structured in three portfolios: PUBLISH, MONITOR and DISCOVER. The services are widely used in Europe and beyond and integrated in OpenAIRE-Nexus to assemble a uniform Open Science Scholarly Communication package for the EOSC. The project aims at forming synergies with other INFRAEOSC-07 awarded projects, the INFRAEOSC-03 project, research infrastructures, einfrastructures, and scholarly communication services define a common Open Science interoperability framework for the EOSC, to facilitate sharing, monitoring, and discovery of EOSC resources across disciplines.

OpenAIRE Nexus services in a nutshell
Zenodo - a catch-all repository hosted by CERN, which researchers, communities or Research Performing Organizations, and citizens can use for FAIR sharing and long-term preserving research results
EpiSciences - a pan-European overlay journal platform, operating on top of OA repositories (e.g. HAL, Zenodo, arXiv), where communities can create and operate high-quality OA journals
Amnesia - a service to anonymize sensitive research data (GDPR compliant), ready to be embedded in institutional workflows, to remove barriers and facilitate FAIRness of data
ARGOS - a service for machine-actionable Data Management Plans, guiding researchers towards FAIR, configurable to domain discipline knowledge
MONITOR Dashboard - customized portals as-a-service to funders, institutions and RIs detailing research throughput, output, collaboration and impact, open science uptake. Based on the OpenAIRE Research Graph, a semi-automatically curated catalogue to serve the EOSC and the global research community, which includes all types of scholarly records (publications, data, software, other research artefacts), interlinked via citations, and maintaining provenance information about all actors involved in the research process (researchers, organizations, funders, service providers)
OpenCitations - an open database that tracks article-article citations
ScholExplorer - an open database that tracks article-dataset and dataset-dataset citations
UsageCounts - an open analytics service aggregating and de-duplicating publications DOI usage data
OpenAPC - article and book publishing costs (APC and BPC) from research institutions and funders
Open Science Observatory - a dashboard that includes statistics and monitoring information on open science in Europe, with country views
OpenAIRE AAI - Enables Service Providers to deliver services and offer access to resources to research communities and individual researchers, allowing users to use their institutional and community-enabled digital identities.
PROVIDE Dashboard - a bundle of services for content providers to share and exchange metadata and content using EOSC metadata frameworks and Rules of Participation. The service provides metadata validation, reporting and brokering functionalities, providing feedback about gaps between EOSC data sources, maintaining an up-to-date scholarly record
EXPLORE Dashboard - an AI-driven research search engine allowing cross-disciplinary and scientificintent discovery, additionally providing access to the OpenAIRE Research Graph via open APIs
CONNECT Dashboard - customized portals/gateways as-a-service to research communities (domain specific or regional) with open science practices embedded by design
