Open Access Infrastructure for Research in Europe - Connect
OpenAIRE-Connect fosters transparent evaluation of results and facilitates reproducibility of science for research communities by enabling a scientific communication ecosystem supporting exchange of artefacts, packages of artefacts, and links between them across communities and across content providers. OpenAIRE-Connect extends the technological services and networking bridges (human/social/support) today offered by the OpenAIRE infrastructure in order to foster the expansion of an Open Science publishing paradigm and facilitate the emergence of shared solutions to it. Specifically, OpenAIRE-Connect introduce three classes of new services:
- Research community services: offering support for a uniform transition of research communities towards Open Science publishing;
- Content provider services: leveraging the transition of content providers towards Open Science publishing;
- Support services: building community capacities for European and global alignment on Open Science publishing
By introducing an Open Science as a Service (OSaaS) approach, OpenAIRE-Connect will deliver on-demand Open Science publishing services to research communities and content providers, aligning practices and mechanisms that address transparent evaluation and reproducibility. By complementing the technological efforts by networking activities that will strengthen the emerging Open Science social environment, OpenAIRE-Connect will facilitate a cultural and technological shift towards common Open Science publishing practices.
