Date: 26 June 2020
Hours: 12:00 - 13:00 CEST
The aim of the webinar is to demonstrate to researchers, librarians and repository editors the input and publication of a dataset in an institutional repository and to present the OpenAIRE dashboard and the opportunities it offers for repository managers, research communities and research funders.
Demonstration of dataset entry (Ivan Buljan, PhD, Faculty of Medicine in Split)
►Dr. Ivan Buljan from the University of Split, School of Medicine (MEFST) will share his experience of managing and sharing research data. He will demonstrate how to upload a dataset in MEFST Repository.
The lecturer and participants will be able to discuss possible doubts about the form for storing a dataset and suggest improvements. All involved experts will contribute with clarifications and suggestions related to topics such as file naming, license selection etc.
Management, reporting and monitoring of the institutional repository: What the OpenAIRE dashboard provides (Assoc. Prof. Jadranka Stojanovski, Ruđer Bošković Institute, Alen Vodopijevec, Ruđer Bošković Institute)
►Although scientists have mostly accepted digital science and use research infrastructures, thematic services, etc. to conduct their research and report on the results of their research, the effective implementation of Open Science is still hampered by various cultural and technical barriers, since the practices and tools used do not allow for full transparency and reproducibility of scientific research. In this context, the efforts of institutional repository managers related to infrastructure maintenance and improvement, content storage, data sharing, encouraging openness, teaching and repository management can significantly contribute to the development of open science. This webinar will present the OpenAIRE Dashboard and the opportunities it offers to repository managers, research communities, and scientific research funders. Registering to OpenAIRE all content stored in institutions’ repository becomes part of the consolidated data on Europe's publications, research data and software. This is why it is important to familiarize yourself with the advanced tools offered by the OpenAIRE dashboard. The webinar will provide information about the possibilities of cleaning and identifying the relationship between different research entities (publications, data, funding, scientists/authors, institutions/organizations and data sources). In addition, the webinar will explain the procedures for connecting publications and data with data about funders. In order to enrich the metadata description, of particular importance is the ability to combine your own metadata with the metadata available from OpenAIRE. It is important for repository managers to monitor the impact and statistics of content usage, as well as the production of various reports and statistics. Finally, the webinar will briefly show the dashboard functionalities for research communities and funders.
