OpenAIRE guidelines for CRIS managers : supporting interoperability of open research information through established standards, by Nikos Houssos (CRIS2014)

  1. 1. OpenAIRE Guidelines for CRIS Managers Supporting Interoperability of Open Research Information through established standards Nikos Houssosa, Brigitte Jörgb, Jan Dvořákc, Pedro Prínciped, Eloy Rodriguesd, Paolo Manghie, Mikael K.

  2. 2. Outline • OpenAIRE CRIS Guidelines overview and scope • Different aspects of interoperability support • Data exchange based on CERIF-XML • Semantics • Harvesting protocol for the transmission of CERIF-XML • Status and next steps 12th International CRIS Conference, Rome, 13-15 May 2014
  3. 3. OpenAIRE CRIS Guidelines overview • Guidelines for CRIS managers to expose information to OpenAIRE • Great benefits for CRIS managers: reuse – dissemination of their information by the OpenAIRE infrastructure • OpenAIRE can be considered a CRIS system – internal OpenAIRE data model is CERIF compliant • OpenAIRE interoperability with CRIS systems: an example of point-to- point data exchange between CRIS systems 12th International CRIS Conference, Rome, 13-15 May 2014
  4. 4. Different aspects of interoperability • Structure and semantics • Structure: data model (CERIF subset) • Semantics: vocabularies and terms used for classification and definition of relationships • System and syntax • Access / harvesting protocol (OAI-PMH) • Marshalling CERIF XML as OAI-PMH payload 12th International CRIS Conference, Rome, 13-15 May 2014
  5. 5. Interoperabilty in structure • Define the subset of CERIF relevant for OpenAIRE • Major part of this work performed during definition of the CERIF-compliant OpenAIRE internal data model 12th International CRIS Conference, Rome, 13-15 May 2014
  6. 6. Semantic interoperability • The meaning and scope of each CERIF entity within OpenAIRE • Terms and vocabularies used for classifications and definition of relationships – reuse standard CERIF Semantics vocabularies with certain additions • Ensured consistency with OpenAIRE Guidelines for literature and data repositories (e.g. dataset types, open access types) 12th International CRIS Conference, Rome, 13-15 May 2014
  7. 7. Syntactic interoperability • Reuse CERIF XML • OpenAIRE CERIF XML Schema with distinct namespace • Strict subset of the canonical CERIF XML (data elements and constraints) • Distinct namespace (OpenAIRE domain) • Nesting only of multi-lingual attributes, federated identifiers and linked entities • Referential integrity constraints apply 12th International CRIS Conference, Rome, 13-15 May 2014
  8. 8. System interoperability • Harvesting protocol: OAI-PMH • Different OAI-PMH sets need to be made available by the data provider • One for each entity type (e.g. get all records of cfProject) • One for the entire CERIF XML graph • Relaxed rules about selective harvesting through time stamps and deleted records 12th International CRIS Conference, Rome, 13-15 May 2014
  9. 9. Guidelines material • Main guidelines document • Includes definition of allowed vocabularies and terms for each classification and relationship type • OpenAIRE CERIF XML Schema • Examples • CRIS data expressed in OpenAIRE CERIF XML • CERIF XML as OAI-PMH payload • Material available at the OpenAIRE Guidelines Wiki https://guidelines.openaire.eu/wiki/OpenAIRE_Guidelines:_For_CRIS 12th International CRIS Conference, Rome, 13-15 May 2014
  10. 10. Process - methodology • Ensured early involvement of stakeholders and communities • OpenAIRE (e.g. technical infrastructure developers, guidelines and community support teams) • euroCRIS community – CERIF experts, developers / vendors of CRIS systems • Early internal review within OpenAIRE • Review by the CERIF experts and CRIS developers (autumn 2013) • Valuable feedback collected and incorporated into guidelines 12th International CRIS Conference, Rome, 13-15 May 2014
  11. 11. Status and next steps • Guidelines went through public review (review period ended 28 March 2014) • No major review comments • Post-review version to be released within May 2014 12th International CRIS Conference, Rome, 13-15 May 2014
