From the architecture and service point of view, the goal of this activity is to support the publishing of research/scientific products (research data, research software, experiments, research objects, etc.) in a FAIR way so as to lower the barriers for scientific communities to make research products more findable and discoverable to a larger scientific community, and to increase the uptake of open science by enabling the use and reuse of a wider range of scientific outputs.  Service Integration will also facilitate the adoption of data management plans.


The objectives are to:

  • facilitate the adoption of data management plans
  • foster and facilitate sharing and reuse of all products of science and support reproducibility of science and transparent evaluation of the scientific process, and
  • enable fully-fledged scientific reward mechanisms.


The high level goals can be broken down into the following use cases, which will drive the technical work detailed below:

  1. Researchers and communities can adopt good data management practices via Data Management Plans according Horizon 2020 guidelines, including OpenAIRE and EOSC-hub services.
  2. Researchers depositing publications in OpenAIRE can include references to datasets and application services within the papers, pointing to datasets and services stored in EOSC-hub.
  3. Communities share scientific output with a high level of FAIRness via OpenAIRE services to broader audiences.
  4. Enabling OpenAIRE users to collect and visualise research impact data about the use of data and application services that are federated via EOSC-hub. 
  5. Providing coherent, integrated information and support for RDM for researchers and projects, irrespectively whether they contact OpenAIRE or EOSC-hub.

A DMP describes the data management life cycle for data to be collected, processed and/or generated. It is key in good data management practices, and mandatory in Horizon 2020 projects. In order to support better the process of defining DMPs that comply with the H2020 guidelines, a DMP tool will be jointly developed by EOSC-hub and OpenAIRE-Advance. The DMP tool will be integrated (i.e. registered) with both project catalogues: EOSC-hub Service Catalogue and OpenAIRE-Advance service catalogue. The Order Management tool (where the customer is the entity placing the order and the provider the receiving one) is going to provide an efficient way to manage the provisioning of services and resources coming from DMPs.

Benefits. Horizon 2020 projects will have an easy way to define DMPs that comply with the H2020 guidelines for DMPs, and to find and request services offered via the Hub.

Services involved. OpenAIRE/EUDAT DMP tool, EOSC-hub Marketplace and order management tool.

Common practices to expose, access and define citation metadata and link metadata for literature, datasets, and software in a FAIR way, are crucial for communities and researchers to enable sharing and discovery of scientific outcome and possible reproducibility of science.

The aim of this activity is to define and promote common guidelines for scientific product content providers in order to facilitate the publishing and exchange of scientific products.


This activity is crucial to enable definition of new citation/quality indexes for science and come up with Open Science-flavoured research impact.

JA1.2.A Define and promote common guidelines

Common guidelines for content providers and scientific products are necessary in order to support the efficient exchange of information and descriptions of and references to scientific products. OpenAIRE already defines and fosters guidelines for scholarly content providers and recommendations on the exchange and harvesting of metadata relative to publications, datasets[1], software[2], and “other scientific products”[3]. The guidelines establish metadata formats for specific kinds of providers (publication repositories, data repositories, software repositories, CRIS systems) on how to express and export descriptions of the scientific products they contain.

This task will:  

  • Endorse and foster adoption of OpenAIRE guidelines.
  • Assess and refine OpenAIRE guidelines for the definition and exchange of descriptions of “other scientific products” (i.e. products different from publications, datasets, and software)
  • Investigate the possibility of introducing new guidelines for specific classes of “other products” (e.g. services, protocols, workflows, virtual appliances). This activity will be conducted in the context of existing RDA groups.
  • Define a framework for identifying and describing scientific communities. This activity will be conducted in the context of RDA groups.


Joint Activity JA2 (communication, engagement, support and training) will support this task to promote and technically support the resulting EOSC-defined guidelines.

Benefits. Content providers (data providers, software providers, publishers) can expose metadata about their scientific products in a uniform and broadly accepted format, thereby maximizing their accessibility, interoperability, and findability, ultimately improving visibility of products and content providers, and a high level of FAIRness.

Services involved. This activity concerns endorsing of existing and establishing new guidelines; therefore no services are directly involved in this activity.

Internal working document

For all stakeholders involved in enabling, conducting and funding research and to the public in general, it is mandatory to determine the scientific impact of outputs produced and of the research conducted. The basis for measuring and evaluating the scientific impact is the measurement of usage and re-usage of scientific products (literature, datasets, software, services, tools) and between scientific products, scientific organisations, to content and service providers and funding agencies. The objective of this task is to define guidelines for measuring the exchange of usage statistics, adapting EOSC-hub and OpenAIRE services to support these new guidelines and enabling the exchange and aggregation of these usage statistics within the OpenAIRE Usage Stats service. To come to new guidelines for measuring and exchanging usage statistics, this task will collaborate with the RDA WG Make Data Count.

Benefits.

  • Researchers can access scientific products together with their usage statistics.
  • Researchers authoring scientific products different from literature can benefit from new impact measures.
  • Service providers can define quality metrics and relative tools for open science (taking into account all products and their usage).
  • Scientific communities and funding agencies have quality metrics on scientific impact on research done and funded. These metrics can be used within the decision-making process for the long-term preservation of scientific products.

Contact: ja-annotate@mailman.eosc-hub.eu


The ability to annotate scientific products (add properties, values or tags to their metadata) and sharing such annotation is key to capture the dynamic and evolving facets of science and make them useful input for researchers. EUDAT – via EOSC-hub –  provides the B2NOTE service to be used across EOSC-hub and OpenAIRE services as a mean to share annotations across different repository services. This task focuses on investigating the possibility of enabling annotation functionality in OpenAIRE services (e.g. OpenAIRE Research Community Dashboard, Zenodo). Since such services where developed independently, this task will first carry out a feasibility study of technological integration, followed by an implementation phase in accordance to the identified expectations.

Benefits

  • Researchers share annotations and can benefit from other’s;
  • Service providers can benefit from such content to provide advanced services for scientists. This will enrich the value of scientific products and will enlarge their re-usability.  

Services involved. EUDAT B2NOTE, OpenAIRE Research Community Dashboard, OpenAIRE Zenodo.

JA1.4.C Anonymisation of sensitive data

EOSC-hub Coordination: Maria Francesca Iozzi, Coordinator of T6.6 Sensitive Data (UNINETT)

OpenAIRE-Advance Coordination: Prodromos Tsiavos, Athena RC (Manolis Terrovitis, with support of Prodromos Tsiavos for the legal aspects)

Contact: ja-anonymise@mailman.eosc-hub.eu

Processing, analysis, sharing and/or publishing of sensitive data is often restricted, and it is regulated by institutional, national and/or European laws and policies. Often sensitive data can only be made available after anonymising information that can be used to identify persons.

OpenAIRE is developing an anonymisation service, called Amnesia, in which users can easily anonymise personal information within data objects. The Amnesia service is, at time of this writing, in beta stage. Within EOSC-hub a dedicated task has been included to integrate and to offer secure computing environments within EOSC-hub and to explore solutions for making sensitive data FAIR. In this context, the Amnesia service can provide a possible solution for communities and users with sensitive data to automatically anonymise personal information within sensitive data. The main objective of this joint activity is to pilot the usability of the Amnesia service within the sensitive data services provided via EOSC-hub for data anonymisation prior to data exporting and metadata anonymisation prior to publishing and discovery of sensitive data in B2SHARE and B2FIND.

After a successful pilot, EOSC-Hub/OpenAIRE can promote the OpenAIRE Amnesia service to research communities to have data properly anonymised to a given degree of anonymisation.

Benefits. Via the OpenAIRE Amnesia service, researchers in need of anonymising data will have a service to easily anonymise data, to make it easier to make it available and/or share it between users across communities.
