- OpenAIRE Guidelines for publication repositories, data archives and CRIS systems
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.
- Tabular Data Package
A profile of the Data Package specification, intended for exchanging tabular data in CSV (comma-separated values) format.
- Data Package libraries
A collection of libraries for working with Data Packages in various programming languages, and scripts for importing them into databases.
- Data Package Validator
The Data Package Validator takes the URL of a Data Package and checks whether it conforms to the Data Package specification.
- Data Package Viewer
The Data Package Viewer takes the URL of a Data Package and provides a human-friendly view of it.
- Data Packagist
The Data Packagist is a Web-based tool for writing a Data Package descriptor file (datapackage.json).
Geometa is an R package that offers facilities to handle reading and writing of geographic metadata defined with OGC/ISO 19115, 11119 and 19110 geographic information metadata standards, and encoded using the ISO 19139 XML standard. It also includes a facility to check the validity of ISO 19139 XML encoded metadata. The package can be used in integrated (meta)data management flows to generate business metadata compliant with ISO/OGC standards. Metadata generated with geometa can then be published to standard web metadata catalogues by means of related R packages such as ows4R (R interface to OGC Web-Services) or geonapi (R Interface to GeoNetwork API).
- OpenAIRE Validator
This service validates OAI-PMH metadata records against the OpenAIRE Guidelines for publication repositories, data archives and current research information systems.
- Data Packaged Core Datasets
A collection of commonly used and example data sets packaged using the Data Package specification.
A European Scholarly Communication Infrastructure that aggregates bibliographic metadata from a network of publication repositories, data archives and CRIS following the OpenAIRE Guidelines. Together with additional authoritative information, the objects and their relationships described by the metadata form an information space graph which can be traversed by users and accessed via APIs by other services. The metadata primarily support discovery and monitoring services.
