OpenAIRE+ presented in Brașov, 2012

  1. 1. OpenAIREplus2nd Generation of Open Access Infrastructure for Research in Europe Nicolaie Constantinescu, kosson@gmail.com National Open Access Desk, România www.kosson.ro Information architect, Kosson Community
  2. 2. How does the European Commission supports OA now The pilot, which will run until the end of FP7, covers approximately 20 % of the FP7 research budget. Under the Open Access pilot, FP7 grant recipients in seven areas (energy, environment, health, information and communication technologies [only cognitive systems, interaction, and robotics], research infrastructures [only e-infrastructures], science in society, and socioeconomic sciences and humanities) are expected to: • deposit peer-reviewed research articles or final manuscripts resulting from their FP7 projects into an online repository; • make their best effort to ensure open access to these articles within either 6 months (health, energy, environment, information and communication technologies, research infrastructures) or 12 months (science in society, socioeconomic sciences and humanities) after publication. In addition to the pilot, FP7 rules of participation also allow all projects to have open access fees eligible for reimbursement during the time of the grant agreement Innovative approaches concerning the promotion of open access to scientific information by information literacy, Brașov, 20122
  3. 3. 2012 results In May 2011, the Commission identified the 811 projects designated at the time and sent a questionnaire to all project• less than 50% did not know the possibility• 8 projects out of 194 answers reported they used it• For 72% of respondents, reimbursement of Gold OA is restricted by the fact that most publishing activities occur after the project end• Almost 70% of respondents think it is better to use self-archiving to satisfy the OA requirement in FP7 Innovative approaches concerning the promotion of open access to scientific information by information literacy, Brașov, 20123
  4. 4. Future consolidation is based on: Conclusions The dissemination of research results in FP7, including self-archiving and costs related to open access, is often an underestimated aspect. However, it requires specific measures and sustained investment. Despite its recognised benefits, the implementation of open access remains a challenge. Open access also raises technical questions and legal issues, linked in particular to how researchers exercise their copyright. Further difficulties are the lack of awareness of researchers and of concrete support for them to practice open access. Innovative approaches concerning the promotion of open access to scientific information by information literacy, Brașov, 20124
  5. 5. European Research Council The ERC therefore supports the principle of open access to the published outputs of research as a fundamental part of its mission.5
  6. 6. European Research Council European Research Council (2012). Open Access Status of Journal Articles from ERC Funded Projects, Brussels. A list of 630 journal articles reported in 88 mid-term project reports formed the basis of this analysis. The results show that 62 % of journal articles from ERC funded projects are available in open access. The share of articles in open access varies across research domains. It is close to 70 % in Life Sciences, 65 % in Physical Sciences and Engineering and nearer 50 % in Social Sciences and Humanities Innovative approaches concerning the promotion of open access to scientific information by information literacy, Brașov, 20126
  7. 7. COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION of 17.7.2012 on access to and preservation of scientific information Policies on open access to scientific research results should apply to all research that receives public funds. Open access to scientific research data enhances data quality, reduces the need for duplication of research, speeds up scientific progress and helps to combat scientific fraud. Innovative approaches concerning the promotion of open access to scientific information by information literacy, Brașov, 20127
  8. 8. One response: OpenAIRE+ Creating a robust, participatory service for the cross-linking of peer-reviewed scientific publications and associated datasets is the principal goal of OpenAIREplus Innovative approaches concerning the promotion of open access to scientific information by information literacy, Brașov, 20128
  9. 9. A quick glance This large-scale project brings together 41 pan- European partners, including three cross- disciplinary research communities. The project will capitalise on the successful efforts of the OpenAIRE project which is rapidly moving from implementing the EU Open Access Pilot project into a service phase, enabling researchers to deposit their FP7 and ERA funded research publications into Open Access repositories Innovative approaches concerning the promotion of open access to scientific information by information literacy, Brașov, 20129

  11. 11. Meaning?! The project will establish an e- Infrastructure to harvest, enrich and store the metadata of Open Access scientific datasets. Innovative underlying technical structures will be deployed to support the management of and inter-linking between associated scientific data. Innovative approaches concerning the promotion of open access to scientific information by information literacy, Brașov, 201211
  12. 12. How it is working? Access to and deposit of linked publications via the OpenAIRE portal are supported by a Help Desk, and OpenAIREs collaborative networking structure will be extended to promote the concept of open enhanced publications among user communities. Liaison offices in each of the projects 31 European countries work to support the needs of researchers in Europe.

  14. 14. The clock is ticking 1. Define clear policies for the dissemination of and open access to scientific publications resulting from publicly funded research. 2. Ensure that research funding institutions responsible for managing public research funding and academic institutions receiving public funding implement the policies 3. Define clear policies for the dissemination of and open access to research data resulting from publicly funded research. 4. Reinforce the preservation of scientific information 5. Further develop e-infrastructures underpinning the system for disseminating scientific information 6. Ensure synergies among national e-infrastructures at European and global level 7. Participate in multi-stakeholder dialogues at national, European and/or international level on how to foster open access to and preservation of scientific information. 8. Designate by the end of the year a national point of reference 9. Inform the Commission 18 months from the publication of this Recommendation in the Official Journal of the European Union, and every two years thereafter, of action taken in response to the different elements of this Recommendation, in accordance with formalities to be defined and agreed.
