The OpenAIRE Guidelines are a suite of application profiles designed to allow research institutions to make their scholarly outputs visible through the OpenAIRE infrastructure. The profiles are based on established standards and designed to be used in conjunction with the OAI-PMH metadata harvesting protocol:
- The OpenAIRE Guidelines for Literature Repositories are based on Dublin Core;
- The OpenAIRE Guidelines for Data Archives are based on the DataCite Metadata Schema;
- The OpenAIRE Guidelines for CRIS Managers is based on CERIF.
While the focus of each profile is different, they allow for interlinking and the contextualization of research artefacts.
- Internal MSC ID
This service validates OAI-PMH metadata records against the OpenAIRE Guidelines for publication repositories, data archives and current research information systems.
