Open Repositories 2016, Dublin, June 13-16:

Workshop 10: From Repositories, for Repositories: OpenAIRE services and toolsWorkshop: "From Repositories, for Repositories: OpenAIRE services and tools" [13/Jun/2016 1:30pm-3:30pm]

This tutorial session will outline the main services and tools that OpenAIRE is providing as a comprehensive infrastructure and how can OpenAIRE help turn Open Access policies into successful implementation. Apart from an overview of the infrastructure, the workshop targeting repository managers and administrators, developers, data producers and librarians will be guided by four core content areas: 1) OpenAIRE Guidelines for Data providers, 2) OpenAIRE content acquisition policy and Enrichment, 2) OpenAIRE validator tool and APIs, 4) OpenAIRE broker service and dashboard for repository managers.

Paper: "Scaling Usage Statistics across Repositories as an OpenAIRE Analytics Service" [14/Jun/2016 4:00pm-5:30pm]

Usage metrics about scholarly output, such as publications and research data, are one of the measures to assess Open Access impact. The OpenAire 2020 [1] project aims to offer a service that monitors and analyzes usage information, as well as exploits usage metrics like views and downloads, which could be used as complements of bibliometrics and webometrics. In this paper, we present the first step towards the implementation of this service, manifested as a pilot run in a set of repositories, together with some initial results which illustrate the use of the applied methodology.

Poster: "OpenAIRE Data Providers Guidelines: Promoting Repositories Interoperability and Supporting Open Access Funder Mandates" [14/Jun/2016: 5:30pm-6:30pm]

The poster briefly outlines four complementary areas that contributes for a comprehensive understanding of how OpenAIRE is promoting Repositories Interoperability and supporting Open Access Funder Mandates: 1) the OpenAIRE content acquisition policy; 2) the set of guidelines available for OpenAIRE data provider managers, 3) the validator tool available for testing the compatibility of the data provider and its registration into the infrastructure, and 4) the metadata curation and enrichment process policy in OpenAIRE.
