ESCAPE and ESFRI: overcoming common data-driven challenges through innovative FAIR data services


« European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) is a self-regulated body that supports a strategy-led approach to policy-making on research infrastructures in Europe. It aims to increase European competitiveness in research and innovation by filling in existing gaps in research capability, upgrade existing operational pan-European research infrastructures for the coming 10-20 years and, ultimately, turn Europe into an incubator for pan-European and global research infrastructures.
ESCAPE has partnered with the ESFRI and various world-class astrophysics and particle physics, to validate its outputs and help them to address profound questions about the structure and evolution of the universe. (…) »

Health Data as a global public good – a call for Health Data Governance


« For public comment (…) by 29 August, 2021
1.1 The COVID-19 pandemic has increased volumes of data worldwide and accelerated the trend towards digitalization in health. It has also exposed long standing data governance issues, including issues of intellectual property rights, data access and sharing, use, reuse and storage. Persistent data gaps and fragmented approaches to governance of health data in different contexts are a major roadblock to the use of data as a global public good. Health data is a strategic asset and its collection and use requires global cooperation with clear direction in an evolving and fragmenting global landscape. (…) »

Trust Markers: Interpreting the trustworthiness of an ORCID record


« 2021 is the fifth anniversary of ORCID’s Trust Program, and we’re celebrating with a series of blog posts that outline our thinking about how we balance the sometimes-competing priorities of researcher control and data quality, while adhering to our values of openness, trust, and inclusivity.
In this blog post, our second in the Five Years of the ORCID Trust Program series, we introduce the concept of “trust markers” in an ORCID record and outline how users of ORCID data can determine for themselves which kinds of data in an ORCID record they consider to be trust markers for their specific use case.

COPIM response to new UKRI Open Access Policy


« COPIM (Community-led Publication Infrastructures for Monographs) welcomes the announcement of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI)’s open access (OA) policy, which will:

  • include monographs, chapters & edited collections from 1 January 2024;
  • require the final version of a publication or accepted manuscript to be made open access via a publisher’s website, a platform or a repository, within a maximum of 12 months of publication;
  • and recommend Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) licensing, while other Creative Commons permissions such as Attribution Non-Commercial (BY NC) and Attribution Non-Derivative (BY ND) licences are also permitted.

At COPIM, we believe that a shift to open access for academic books is not only possible, but necessary. We — together with a larger network of projects committed to community-led and not-for-profit approaches to scholarly publishing — are developing infrastructures and business models to support publishers and authors in making their long-form research output openly available without relying on embargoes or author-facing charges (otherwise known as Book Processing Charges or BPCs). These infrastructures are already supporting university and scholar-led presses to publish open access books without these constraints. (…) »

Bring your OA game « Libraries, publishers, and innovation for OA books: a European perspective »


« The end of June 2021 marked the finishing line for the OPERAS-P project, a European Union funded giant, in which multiple institutions came together to carve a path forward for Open Science in Social Sciences and Humanities. As part of the Work Package focused on innovation we investigated innovative business models for Open Access (OA) books. Our goal was ambitious: we aimed to develop, collate, and share knowledge on alternative (non-BPC) approaches to funding and publishing OA books. To fulfill this general goal, we wanted to better understand the perspectives of two crucial stakeholders in the book publishing ecosystem: libraries and publishers. (…) »

Comment le Copernicus Marine Service collecte des données en mer du Nord


« Le Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS) est un service d’observation, de surveillance et de prévision des océans, financé par la Commission européenne. Il est mis en oeuvre par l’organisation à but non lucratif Mercator Ocean International, un centre d’analyse et de prévision de l’océan mondial, basé en France. Dans le cadre de ses missions, le CMEMS a mis en place un dispositif basé sur des capteurs installés sur des navires de pêche en mer du Nord, afin de collecter des données essentielles, difficiles à obtenir par d’autres moyens.
Ce projet résulte d’une collaboration entre les scientifiques de Copernicus Marine et la start-up Berring Data Collective (BDC), dédiée à l’observation des océans. Celle-ci propose un service de bout en bout pour collecter des données océanographiques, depuis l’intégration des capteurs jusqu’à la fourniture en temps réel des données à travers une plateforme cloud.

Lessons from arXiv’s 30 years of information sharing


« Since the launch of arXiv 30 years ago, modes of information spread in society have changed dramatically — and not always for the better. Paul Ginsparg, who founded arXiv, discusses how academic experience with online preprints can still inform information sharing more generally. (…) »

UKRI: Funding agreed for a platform that will change research culture


« Research England grants £650,000 to help build Octopus into a new global service for scholarly communication.
Funding has been agreed to help develop a ground-breaking global service which could positively disrupt research culture for the better.
Announced today by the science minister, Amanda Solloway, Octopus Publishing Community Interest Company (CIC), in collaboration with Jisc, will receive £650,000 over three years from Research England’s emerging priorities fund.
The money will support development of a new platform for the scientific community. Called Octopus, it will provide a new ‘primary research record’ for recording and appraising research ‘as it happens’. (…) »

Principles and standards for OA arrangements between libraries, consortia and smaller independent publishers
