e-Infrastructures for Open Science
Presenter: Iryna Kuchma (EIFL, Netherlands)
OpenAIRE is a socio-technical network that supports the implementation and monitoring of Open Science policies, including Open Access to publications and research data. This presentation will introduce the OpenAIRE architecture, its technical and human support services, and provide an overview of its diverse research into how openness and transparency can improve scientific processes. Open Science needs pragmatic, participatory infrastructures to make it work. Embedded in a global network of repositories, OpenAIRE brings together more than 50 institutions to provide key elements of this infrastructure for Open Scholarship in Europe and beyond.
Implementation is enabled by a pan-European network of Open Access/Open Science experts – the National Open Access Desks (NOADs), present in every EU country and beyond. The NOAD’s work together to align national policies, define shared solutions and best practices. They also outreach and perform advocacy through a range of targeted training events and support materials.
Monitoring is achieved by means of an infrastructure composed of a decentralized network of data sources, namely publication repositories, data repositories, publishers, and current research information systems. By harnessing the contents of “compatible” publication and data repositories (both institutional and disciplinary) and linking them to other research entities (researchers, institutions, projects), OpenAIRE produces a 360° picture of the impact of European research funding.
