Repositories: OpenAIRE-Advance Launches Next Month

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
