The OpenAIRE Technical Team is pleased to announce a new release of the OpenAIRE XML schema that fixes some inconsistencies and introduces new types of research results in addition to "publication" and "dataset".
The new schema is version 1.0 and it is available at https://www.openaire.eu/schema/1.0/oaf-1.0.xsd. Documentation is accessible at https://www.openaire.eu/schema/1.0/doc/oaf-1.0.html.
XML records produced by OpenAIRE at the beginning of 2018 will be compliant to the new schema. If you want to see some records in the new format and start adapting your parsers to the new schema, feel free to download the samples from http://svn-public.driver.research-infrastructures.eu/driver/dnet40/modules/dnet-openaireplus-schema/trunk/schema/1.0/samples/ .
Please note that samples do not include the OAI header.
For any questions, please contact us at the OpenAIRE helpdesk: https://www.openaire.eu/support/helpdesk.
The OpenAIRE Technical Team
In this next phase, OpenAIRE-Advance strives to empower its National Open Access Desks (NOADs) so they become a pivotal part within their own national data infrastructures, positioning OA and open science onto national agendas. The capacity building activities bring together experts on topical task groups in thematic areas (open policies, RDM, legal issues, TDM), promoting a train the trainer approach, strengthening and expanding the pan-European Helpdesk with support and training toolkits, training resources and workshops. It examines key elements of scholarly communication, i.e., co-operative OA publishing and next generation repositories, to develop essential building blocks of the scholarly commons.
On the technical level OpenAIRE-Advance focuses on the operation and maintenance of the OpenAIRE technical TRL8/9 services, and radically improves the OpenAIRE services on offer by: a) optimizing their performance and scalability, b) refining their functionality based on end-user feedback, c) repackaging them into products, taking a professional marketing approach with well-defined KPIs, d) consolidating the range of services/products into a common e-Infra catalogue to enable a wider uptake.
OpenAIREAdvance steps up its outreach activities with concrete pilots with three major RIs, citizen science initiatives, and innovators via a rigorous Open Innovation programme. Finally, viaits partnership with COAR, OpenAIRE-Advance consolidates OpenAIRE’s global roleextending its collaborations with Latin America, US, Japan, Canada, and Africa.

OpenAIRE makes openly accessible a rich Information Space Graph (ISG) where products of the research life-cycle (e.g. scientific literature, research data, project, software) are semantically linked to each other. The ISG is constructed via a set of autonomic, orchestrated workflows operating in a regimen of continuous data integration.
