From the OpenAIRE Blog:
Repositories forming a distributed global knowledge network have the potential to promote the transformation of the scholarly communication ecosystem and advance the OA scholarly communication infrastructure towards a “scholarly commons “. One of the barriers is a lack of web-based integration with other innovative scholarly services. There is a clear need for repository platforms to adopt modern web-technologies and protocols that will allow them to better interact with more innovative and sophisticated scholarly networked tools and services.
OpenAIRE, it its next three year phase, OpenAIRE-Advance starting from Jan 1, 2018, will build on the outcomes of the COAR Next Generation Repositories Working Group to implement new functionalities at the level of the repository.
OpenAire-Advance Will Be Looking At:
- Improving Discovery and Content Transfer
- Enable Open Metrics for repositories
- Annotation Services
