This presentation will cover new services that open access repositories are already providing/could provide to authors, research institutions and research funders. What role do they play in scholarly publishing in the context of open science? How open access repositories could be used to generate new research metrics and improve research assessment? How open peer review could be embedded into repository operations for some of the research items (reports, theses and dissertations, data sets, etc.)?
It will also cover repository infrastructure in Europe focusing on the OpenAIRE project that interconnects research publications and data, linking them to processes that produced them (scientific software, workflows, services, instruments); enhances their discoverability and reusability; and promotes open scholarship. Strategies for collaboration with national funders will be presented to reinforce the infrastructure’s research analytic services and to practice novel methods of review and scholarly publishing.
