OpenAIRE introduces the Open Science podcasts, aimed to introduce the listeners to the fundamentals of Open Science, OpenAIRE services and news about the Open Science ecosystem from collaborators and its members. Through short stories, OpenAIRE will share experiences from Open Science ambassadors, and explain why does it matter, and how all can benefit.

    Episode #8: OpenAIRE entity, services, and sustainability

    Episode #8: OpenAIRE entity, services, and sustainability

    The CEO of OpenAIRE is invited to briefly present OpenAIRE, its history, and what it offers to the Open Science community. The evolvement of OpenAIRE from being a project to becoming a non-for-profit entity is discussed. Therefore, the conversation moves to the evolvement of the organisation OpenAIRE, its services, and sustainability. How does OpenAIRE approaches the challenge that all Open Science services providers, research infrastructures and organisations actively working on Open Science, face? How does OpenAIRE align with the EC guidelines on Open Science and the need to explore business models and revenues streams for its services. Is OpenAIRE going to charge everyone that will use its services? What are the first thoughts and steps taken towards a sustainable OpenAIRE? What is the role of the OpenAIRE network?

    Lastly, what is EOSC and the position of OpenAIRE within EOSC. What are the EOSC Core services provided by OpenAIRE?

    The interview closes with a wish! Happy birthday OpenAIRE!

    Episode #5: Successful Research Data Management: Integrating Technology and Human Expertise

    Episode #5: Successful Research Data Management: Integrating Technology and Human Expertise

    Effective Research Data Management is the cornerstone of research not only for researchers but for funders and institutions as well. Due to national and European standards, development and delivery of a Data Management Plan (DMP) at the very start of a project or at times even before the project starts is essential (or even mandatory in some case, e.g., Horizon Europe funded projects) for all research input and output. In this episode, our training experts Venkat and Jonathan provide insights on why DMPs are crucial steps in the research lifecycle while Elli, Argos’s service Manager, explains how OpenAIRE tools and services can support researchers and research support staff to write and deliver effective DMPs and how, ultimately, funders and research performing organisations can benefits from its adoption.

    Episode #4: Unleashing the Power of Research: How Repositories Fuel Open Science

    Episode #4: Unleashing the Power of Research: How Repositories Fuel Open Science

    In today's scientific workflow, one of the key ways to unlock the full potential of research is by archiving publications, data, software, and other research outputs in dedicated infrastructures known as "repositories." In this episode, we explore the benefits of depositing your work in a repository, and how this practice can become a crucial pillar of support for Open Science. 

    To give us a comprehensive overview of this topic, we have invited Andreas Czerniak and Pedro Principe, who provide insights into the OpenAIRE Guidelines and the OpenAIRE Provide service. Additionally, Kathleen Shearer offers her expertise on the global repository landscape.

    Episode #3: Demystifying Open Access: Embracing the full scope of Open Science

    Episode #3: Demystifying Open Access: Embracing the full scope of Open Science

    In this episode, we invite three seasoned experts, Elena Giglia, Raphael Tournoy and Andreas Czerniak, to explore what it means to publish Open Access and which tools can be used to this end. We clarify what the Article Processing Charges (APCs) are and how this cost can be monitored at the institutional level, particularly for libraries, and funders by using the OpenAPC service. We explore various publication models of academic journals and inform researchers about key aspects they should be aware of, such as Open Access Models and new developments in scholarly publishing, by using Episciences.
