OpenAIRE Research Graph
OpenAIRE Research Graph is an open resource that aggregates a collection of research data properties (metadata, links) available within the OpenAIRE Open Science infrastructure for funders, organizations, researchers, research communities and publishers to interlink information by using a semantic graph database approach.
Zenodo is a general purpose repository that enables researchers, scientists, projects and institutions to share, preserve and showcase multidisciplinary research results (data, software, publications, and other research objects) that are not part of the existing institutional or subject-based repositories of the research communities. It is founded in the trustworthy CERN data centre and enables everyone to participate in Open Science. Used by more than 200K researchers and 7K communities all over the world.
Episciences is an overlay journal platform. It is an innovative combination of the two routes of free access: the gold route by hosting journals in open access (overlay journals) and the green route where articles are submitted to these journals by depositing them in an open archive. By design, Episciences is an actor of open science and open access. The journals hosted by the Episciences platform are diamond open access journals, they adhere to the FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable). The articles are available in open access via Episciences and on the original Archive; they benefit from a perennial access and a unique identifier.
AMNESIA allows end users to anonymize sensitive data in order to share them with a broad audience. The service allows the user to guide the anonymization process and decide on a flexible trade-off between privacy guarantee and data utility. The service is offered through a web interface that allows users to explore the anonymized data visually. Moreover, the service detects duplicate anonymized files when they are uploaded to Zenodo. Reduce or eliminate the dangers to the privacy of the users that are associated with the data. Allow data owners or curators to safely share the data with other experts and to benefit from their processing on them.
Argos is the online machine-actionable tool developed by OpenAIRE to facilitate Research Data Management (RDM) activities concerning the implementation of Data Management Plans (DMPs). It is an open, extensible and configurable tool which follows global standards including the DMP Common Standard of Research Data Alliance (RDA) for machine actionability. Argos uses OpenAIRE guides created by its RDM Task Force to familiarize users with basic RDM concepts and guide them throughout the process of describing their data. It also utilises the OpenAIRE pool of services and inferred sources to make DMPs more dynamic in use and easier to be completed, published and exploited in the Open Science ecosystem. Argos is based on the OpenDMP open source software, developed in collaboration with EUDAT CDI.
An OpenAIRE on-demand service that provides user-friendly, customizable dashboards of well-documented and timely monitoring indicators of research activities, built upon the OpenAIRE Research Graph (https://graph.openaire.eu). As the number of programmes available for financing research activities has been growing steadily, so has the need to update the monitoring and evaluation of such activities. The OpenAIRE Monitor aims to create a well-rounded and relevant set of metrics, as well as composite and more advanced indicators to build funder, institutional and research infrastructure monitoring dashboards. It offers functionalities such as external (public stakeholders) vs internal (team members) dashboards, downloading of visualizations and datasets, filtering of indications and links to actual research outputs, with the aim of being a one-stop shop for the monitoring, policy-making, analysis and reporting needs of stakeholders.
OpenCitations is an independent not-for-profit infrastructure organization for open scholarship dedicated to the publication of open bibliographic and citation data by the use of Semantic Web technologies. It provides more than one billion citations data that can be reused for any purpose and can be accessed via SPARQL endpoints, REST APIs, and that can be downloaded in bulk.
Scholexplorer is a service that provides access to the largest collection of Open Access (CC-BY) citations between articles and datasets, datasets and datasets, as exposed by Crossref, DataCite, EMBL-EBI, and OpenAIRE. Links (and objects) are provided by data sources managed by publishers, data centers, or other organizations providing services to store and manage links between data sets and publications. Scholexplorer aggregates link metadata harvested from the data sources and out of these, it builds harmonised and de-duplicated graphs of scholarly objects. The graph is openly accessible (CC-0) via search REST APIs that return links in Scholix format.
ScholeXplorer has serviced more than 2 Billion API requests and includes more than 260 Million bi-directional article-dataset and dataset-dataset links.
UsageCounts service collects usage data from Open Science content providers repositories, journals, and other scientific data sources. Then, it aggregates them, delivering standardized activity reports about research usage and uptake. It complements existing citation mechanisms and assists institutional repository managers, research communities, research organizations, funders, and policy makers to track and evaluate research from an early stage.
OpenAPC collects, aggregates and publishes data on Open Access journal articles (APCs), Open Access Books (BPCs) and other cost data from participating institutions. It aims at transparency, comparability and tracking of cost developments in the field of Open Access publishing. Therefore, OpenAPC allows libraries, funding agencies, researchers, developers and 3rd party services to keep track and provide access to the Open Access record of European expenditure for APC or other cost data, e.g. from transformative agreements, across publishers, journals, academic institutions and countries. All OpenAPC data is made freely available under the Open Database License (ODBL). OpenAPC complies with current recommendations for cost transparency in an Open Access based scholarly publication system. It is important to point, that all data is provided voluntarily by universities and other HEI, funders or national consortia. Major PlanS cOAlitionS members and supporters e.g. Wellcome Trust, FWF, or the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation are already contributing data to OpenAPC.
Open Science Observatory
The Open Science Observatory presents a collection of indicators and visualizations that help interested stakeholders (policy makers and research administrators among others) better understand the Open Science landscape in Europe across countries and (coming soon) subject areas. The platform assists the monitoring, and consequently the enhancing, of open science policy uptake across different dimensions of interest, revealing weak spots and hidden potential. Based on the OpenAIRE research graph, following open science principles and an evidence-based approach, the indicators can be used to provide timely and reliable insights on the evolution of open science in Europe and assist in promoting good practices.
OpenAIRE Login enables researchers to securely access and share common resources and services using identities from eduGAIN, the global network of academic identity federations. For users coming from the industry or citizen scientists who may not have access to eduGAIN, the OpenAIRE Login service supports additional trusted authentication providers, such as social networks, community identity providers and other platforms such as ORCID that can provide federated user identities. OpenAIRE Login allows connecting services using popular protocols, such as OpenID Connect and SAML, to securely authenticate and identify their users, organise them in groups, assign them roles and centrally manage access rights for accessing protected resources.
A bundle of services for content providers to share and exchange metadata and content using EOSC metadata frameworks and Rules of Participation. The service provides metadata validation, reporting and brokering functionalities, providing feedback about gaps between EOSC data sources, and maintaining an up-to-date scholarly record.
The OpenAIRE Discovery portal provides access to Open Access research content. It is based on OpenAIRE’s open scholarly communication graph that includes all research and scholarly activities, spanning all phases of the research life cycle. The OpenAIRE scholarly communication graph is created bi-monthly by aggregating, cleaning, transforming and inferring content retrieved from OpenAIRE’s European and global network of validated OA data providers. In addition to the usual search and browse mechanisms, the OpenAIRE Discovery portal provides end user functionalities which allow users to: find the most fitting repository to deposit their publication or data, authoritatively enrich the underlying content (e.g., linking research results to funding, linking research results to external sources), view and download reports or graphs of aggregated research outcomes (e.g., per funder, project, institution) and their stats. Enable intelligent and contextualized research discovery.Connect public to open access research in Europe and beyond.9, 200 registered users. 50, 000 users use the service on the average every month.
OpenAIRE CONNECT is a service that enables research communities to build on-demand, personalised, Research Communities Gateways on a domain and reach out to researchers from a single entry point.
Content providers can use the OpenAIRE Broker service via the OpenAIRE PROVIDE. Thanks to the Broker, repositories, publishers or aggregators can exchange metadata and enrich their local metadata collection by subscribing to notifications of different types. The Broker is able to notify providers when the OpenAIRE Graph contains information that is not available in the original collection of the provider. For instance, the provider can be notified about additional PIDs of publications (e.g. DOIs).
The OpenAIRE Validator service is used by content providers who wish to register to OpenAIRE and allows them to verify that they are compliant with the OpenAIRE guidelines. The service also checks the quality of implementation of the OAI-PMH protocol. Content providers can use the service after logging into the OpenAIRE PROVIDE. If validation succeeds the provider can be registered to join the OpenAIRE infrastructure. The provider’s content is regularly aggregated to contribute to the OpenAIRE Research Graph. OpenAIRE allows for registration of institutional and thematic repositories registered inOpenDOAR, research data repositories registered in re3data, individual e-Journals, CRIS, aggregators and publishers. The Validator service is realised with a configurable software that allows users with administrative rights to customize the validation rules to be applied. This feature makes it easier to adapt the service when the OpenAIRE guidelines are updated and also to offer similar services, possibly with different rules and configurations, to third-parties.Increased interoperability. The Validation service has been deployed also for National and Regional Aggregators like La Referencia (Latin America, 11 countries), Fecyt (Spain), Mincyt (Argentina).
