Dimensions and the Norwegian Centre for Research Data partner to increase visibility of research in the Social Sciences and Arts&Humanities
- 14 Jun 2019

Dimensions and the Norwegian Centre for Research Data (NSD) have announced their partnership which aims to increase visibility, searchability, and availability of research in the areas of Social Science and Arts&Humanities.

The Dimensions platform, which is part of technology company Digital Science, brings together over 140 million publications, awarded research grants, clinical trials, patents, policy documents and their associated metrics.

The European Reference Index for the Humanities and the Social Sciences (ERIH PLUS), which is managed by NSD, was created and developed by and for European researchers to enhance global visibility of high-quality research in the humanities published in academic journals in various European languages. The index enables researchers to better understand and promote the national and international importance of their research, ensuring that peer reviewed quality journals in the SSH continue to thrive.

As a starting point in their collaboration, Dimensions has integrated the ERIH PLUS list as journal list filter in Dimensions, enabling users to more easily identify research outputs that are related to journals listed in ERIH PLUS. Moreover, a new database 'ERIH PLUS by Dimensions' has been launched, which combines the functionality and extensive data sources of Dimensions with ERIH PLUS, enabling users to drill deeper into the research outputs within the journals of ERIH PLUS.

This partnership will improve ERIH PLUS' role as an important source for research documentation and improve the services NSD can provide for all of users.

EDP Sciences signs new agreement with Publons Reviewer Recognition Service
- 14 Jun 2019

EDP Sciences has signed a new agreement for the 'Publons Reviewer Recognition Service' for the journals: Parasite (open access); Cahiers Agricultures (open access); Aquatic Living Resources; 4open (open access); and Sicot-J (open access).

As a society-owned publisher, EDP Sciences is mindful of its role within the scientific community and the interactions of the various members of that community in the publishing process.

The Publons Reviewer Recognition Service promises 'a modern and rewarding peer review experience'; one which EDP Sciences is keen to extend to its reviewers in recognition of their crucial role in the publishing process and their vital contribution to academic rigour more generally.

The Reviewer Recognition Service from Publons, part of Clarivate Analytics, allows reviewers to record, verify, and showcase peer review contributions. Investment in this service is one of the many ways EDP Sciences understands and responds to the needs of the scientific community.

OpenAIRE Task Group calls on institutions to participate in pilot project to harvest Canadian institutional repositories
- 14 Jun 2019

The OpenAIRE Task Group (part of the CARL Open Repositories Working Group) is looking for institutions to participate in a pilot project to harvest Canadian institutional repositories.

OpenAIRE is a set of services funded through the European Commission to track research outputs resulting from EC-funded projects, and to help monitor open access compliance. The CARL-OpenAIRE collaboration will involve working with OpenAIRE on a project to track Canadian-funded research outputs.

The CARL-OpenAIRE project involves the harvesting of Canadian data providers (article and data repositories, as well as Canadian journals). The metadata will be integrated into the large OpenAIRE database and enhanced through text and data mining techniques of the Canadian funders' public grants database, and other external databases such as Crossref, to infer relationships between authors, institutions and funders. OpenAIRE will then provide a view of research outputs funded by the Tri-Agencies.

As a first step, a subset of Canadian institutional repositories will participate in a pilot project to adopt the OpenAIRE metadata guidelines version 4, in order to develop streamlined recommended practices that will assist other institutions in participating at a later stage of the project. Full details on the pilot project are available in this document.

Pilot institutions will need to commit resources (1-2 weeks of staff time) towards both technical implementation of guidelines as well as metadata curation (to ensure OpenAIRE elements are complete). In particular, pilot institutions will be undertaking steps such as: implement the OpenAIRE Guidelines Version 4 with support from the OpenAIRE Task Group; validate the repository with OpenAIRE validator and fix errors; document steps to comply with OpenAIRE and share any code developed to support compliance; and share lessons learned with the Task Group and broader community.

Steps 1-2 of the pilot will take place from early July 2019 to early September, while steps 3-4 will likely extend until November 2019. During this last phase, lessons learned in the pilot will be used to develop support materials and guidance for other Canadian repositories in providing their metadata to OpenAIRE. All Canadian institutions with a repository will be invited to participate in the CARL-OpenAIRE project once the pilot is complete.
