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.
Dataverse is an open source web application to share, preserve, cite, explore, and analyze research data. It facilitates making data available to others, and allows you to replicate others' work more easily. Researchers, journals, data authors, publishers, data distributors, and affiliated institutions all receive academic credit and web visibility. Dataverse has grown considerably over time and is now a major international collaborative project. We encourage you to join us.
The OpenAIRE Validator Service allows data source managers to validate the OAI-PMH publisher of their sources against the OpenAIRE Guidelines (different versions of the guidelines). The tool returns a detailed evaluation of compliance together with feedback on what has to be fixed in the metadata to achieve compliance.
