WP9 Tasks

Task 9.1: OpenAIRE Portal and sErvices

The OpenAIRE portal will be enriched with a number of services that will allow better utilization of the underlying (harvested, cleaned, inferred, interlinked) information space. These services will enhance the existing multi-faceted and dynamic access (search and browse) to support queries on the new extensions of the data model (software, publisher/ journal info, metrics) and the new knowledge inferred from WP10. It will improve the depositing and claiming processes with links to new infrastructures (e.g., PSI) and registries. It will provide recommendations based on similar documents and usage data. It will integrate authentication and authorization mechanisms to serve the end user researchers (ORCID, LinkedIn) and link to the European AAI infrastructure (EduGain). It will consolidate and enhance the end user alert and notification services to adapt on specific H2020 programmes and needs. Based on the Annotation Service developed in the OpenAIREplus it will create personal spaces with the “MyProjects” functionality.


Task 9.2: Statistics, reporting and visualization services

This task will enhance the tool that allows privileged users to design and deliver on-demand statistics and reports. The service will be expanded to incorporate new data types from the extended data model and new graphic layouts. An advanced, interactive visualization service will be developed to showcase the results of the knowledge extraction processes in WP10, i.e., directed graphs of networks and structure (citations, authors) over topic, space and time.


TASK 9.3 Catch-all data pilot Services: Zenodo

This task will deliver data repository services that are capable of satisfying the needs of the Horizon2020 data pilot, through provision of Zenodo. Any researcher without an appropriate community data repository can therefore rely on the Zenodo service to share and preserve any data from the EU funded programmes. This task will extend the Zenodo current service to support the broad range of data publishing initiatives in OpenAIRE2020 making it an appropriate testbed for communities to try out these concepts. This includes data linking, data citation, and anonymized data, and the closely related services for software description and preservation. An important aspect of the service to be developed is the establishment of connections with other data repositories for data export and exchange. In addition, the current service will be extended to align with emerging norms for uniquely identifying researchers, funders and other relevant entities.


TASK 9.4: Open Access publication broker Service
This task will design and develop an Open Access Publications Broker Service, which will notify interested (subscribed) repositories and CRIS systems of publication metadata information available in OpenAIRE. This information may range from (i) Open Access status: e.g., full open access, embargo date, etc., (ii) Inferred information: e.g., project funding, data and publication citations and similarities, download statistics, impact measures, etc. and (iii) Standard bibliographic fields: e.g., persistent identifiers (e.g. DOIs), publication type, link to files. The service will be designed and developedby CNR, with the technical support of ARC and the input from JISC, UNIBI, MINHO, and COUPERIN. It will identify metadata records of publications that are (potentially) of interest to subscribed repositories and CRIS systems and send the records to the repository and CRIS managers who will then be able to (i) complete their metadata records with information they have not collected from their users, or (ii) collect metadata records they are still missing. A range of subscription/notification strategies will be followed so as to provide a flexible and efficient service, while a Dashboard application will be designed and developed for monitoring the results. This effort will be aligned with the UK Repository Junction Broker and the US-SHARE Notification service initiative.



TASK 9.5: OpenAIRE 3rd-party applications

The OpenAIRE infrastructure opens up its content and services via several APIs in order to foster and facilitate the realization of applications by third-party service providers and/or young innovators. This task will offer the logistics and technical support required to develop such applications with special focus on innovative ideas improving the uptake of the OpenAIRE infrastructure or the cause of Open Access. Such applications may cover a wide range of aspects, such as linking OpenAIRE content to external content, researcher social networks, mobile applications. This process will be favoured by two tendersand three hackatons on specific “application areas”, to be defined by ARC, CNR and ARC. These partners will form a committee in charge of defining the rules, advertising, and evaluating the results of such competitions. The OpenAIRE portal will be enriched with a static page, pointing to all applications using the OpenAIRE APIs.


TASK 9.6: Data Anonymization Services

This task will develop two services to be publicly available to research communities and assist them in the Open Research Data Pilot: (i) an anonymization service for microdata that will allow scientists who wish to publish their data to do so without endangering the anonymity of the data sources, and (ii) a safety mechanism that will detect multiple publications of the same dataset and will prevent publishers from sharing the dataset using inconsistent privacy guarantees.
