OpenAIRE at EIFL General Assembly, Lund, August 2010

  1. 1. FP7-Infrastructures Case study: OpenAIRE project – EU funders’ mandates Attribution 3.0 Unported
  2. 2. EC Open access pilot The European Commission launched the open access pilot in August 2008 and it will run until the end of FP7. It requires grant recipients in seven areas to "deposit peer reviewed research articles or final manuscripts resulting from their FP7 projects into an online repository and make their best efforts to ensure open access to these articles". Special Clause 39 on Open Access, applies to all contracts signed after August 20, 2008
  3. 3. EC Open access pilot (2) The seven areas are: 1. Energy; 2. Environment (including Climate Change); 3. Health; 4. Information and Communication Technologies (Cognitive Systems, Interaction, Robotics); 5. Research Infrastructures (e-infrastructures); 6.Science in society; 7. Socio-economic sciences and the humanities Open access to these publications is to be ensured within six months after publication in the first five areas listed; twelve months in the last two areas listed.
  4. 4. EC Open access pilot (3) The European Commission wants to ensure that the results of the research it funds under the EU's 7th Research Framework Programme (FP7) with more than € 50 billion from 2007 – 2013, are disseminated as widely and effectively as possible to guarantee maximum exploitation and impact in the world of researchers and beyond. Open access to research articles helps to increase the impact of the EU's investment in research and development and to avoid wasting time and valuable resources on duplicative research.
  5. 5. EC Open access pilot (4) With access to a wider selection of literature, researchers can build upon this knowledge to further their own work. Small and medium sized businesses and entrepreneurs can also benefit from improved access to the latest research developments to speed up commercialisation and innovation.
  6. 6. ERC Scientific Council Guidelines for Open Access The ERC Scientific Council's Statement on Open Access of December 2006 stressed the fundamental importance of peer-review in ensuring the certification and dissemination of high-quality scientific research, as well as the importance of wide access and efficient dissemination of research results. In December 2007, the ERC Scientific Council followed this up with Guidelines for Open Access. 6
  7. 7. ERC Scientific Council Guidelines for Open Access (2) The ERC requires that all peer-reviewed publications from ERC-funded research projects be deposited on publication into an appropriate research repository where available, such as PubMed Central, ArXiv or an institutional repository, and subsequently made Open Access within 6 months of publication. The ERC considers essential that primary data are deposited to the relevant databases as soon as possible, preferably immediately after publication and in any case not later than 6 months after the date of publication.7
  8. 8. OpenAIRE project: Networking Building Support Structures for Researchers in Depositing Research Publications Website with general information about the EC/ERC OA Policy, 27 national pages (national research environment, funder mandates, OA repositories, OA publishing etc.), FAQs Helpdesk operational Community & Outreach – Outreach to researchers, project coordinators, institutions / repository managers
  9. 9. OpenAIRE: Service Activities Establishment and Operation of the OpenAIRE e- Infrastructure OpenAIRE frontend – Orphan Repository developed by CERN based on Invenio – Deposit workflows, Populating the Information Space OpenAIRE backend – Data model released 9
  10. 10. Populating the OpenAIRE Information Space Ingest of (authoritative) project data Other relevant information: map of repositories, list of journals, license information (SHERPA/RoMEO)... Identifying publications – Author deposits final peer reviewed manuscript in  Institutional or disciplinary repository if available  OpenAIRE Orphan Repository – Repository is  OpenAIRE compliant >> automatic import  not compliant >> author announces/declares to OpenAIRE10
