New Research Tool: Portal to Canadian Research Outputs

From the Portal to Canadian Research Outputs Website:

… the Portal of Canadian Research Outputs has been developed as part of a collaboration between Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL) and OpenAIRE. The portal presents research results collected from Canadian institutional repositories compliant to OpenAIRE guidelines and from the OpenAIRE Research Graph. It links them to three Canadian funders, Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, Canadian Institutes of Health Research and Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.

More From OpenAIRE:

In 2018 three Canadian federal granting agencies have agreed to partner with the Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL) on a project which seeks to use the OpenAIRE infrastructure to improve the discoverability of Canadian Open Access content.

Using the OpenAIRE Research Graph, we co-developed a text mining module capable of identifying highly accurate links between publications and the funding agencies and collected these into one portal. But this is only the beginning! CARL’s efforts are now to empower the Canadian institutional repositories to be part of the national and the global open science ecosystem through the adoption of the OpenAIRE Metadata Guidelines. Their connection to CANADA EXPLORE will ensure a highly valuable service for the country and the world.
