OpenAIRE is proud to support the new Initiative for Open Citations (I4OC)

Truly Open Science requires information about the whole research lifecycle to be open.

I4OC founders 1Six organisations today announced the establishment of the Initiative for Open Citations (I4OC): OpenCitations, the Wikimedia Foundation, PLOS, eLife, DataCite, and the Centre for Culture and Technology at Curtin University.

OpenAIRE is proud to be amongst the initial group of 33 organisations, including The Internet Archive and Mozilla, to formally put their name behind I4OC as stakeholders in support of openly accessible citations.

OpenAIRE/LIBER Workshop May 28, Ghent Belgium

‘Dealing with Data - what’s the role for the library?’

There are places still left for this workshop. Register now!


The past years have seen an increase in the sharing and reuse of data within a range of scientific communities. This will have far reaching effects for the research institution and librarian, not only in terms of discoverability, metadata, standards, but also in terms of infrastructure, skill-sets and practice.Librarians are seeing an increase in queries about how to handle increasingly complex research output, such as datasets, often resulting from funder mandates. In addition, many researchers don’t have an obvious  data centre to use and in some cases are turning to their library for advice. The library and research institution are having to understand their role within this changing environment, and define the necessary support mechanisms.

This joint OpenAIRE/LIBER workshop plans to explore where the library sits in relation to supporting research data management, and what future expectations for libraries might be. OpenAIRE supports a range of stakeholders, namely librarians and researchers in deposit, searching as well as linking research output. LIBER supports libraries in making the transformation and acquiring an active role in evolving areas such as research data management and scientific information infrastructures.

Sessions will cover issues such as the data life-cycle, data citation, metadata and data publication. In addition, a number of scientists will present their views on how  they  use, share, and link research data within different domains. The day will close with a panel session, supported by members of the LIBER Steering Committee “Scholarly Communication and Research Infrastructure”,which will explore future skill-sets for librarians.



Take-aways from the event include

  • Understanding of data creation and publication process
  • Where/how libraries play a role in underpinning data publication
  • The skills required by librarians in supporting researchers’ needs
  • Services available to support data management, as well as linking of literature to research data
