SIGMA assists the euroCRIS Strategic Membership Meeting

30/11/2017  |  Anna Guillaumet

The event took place on 20, 21, and 22 of November in Bratislava.

euroCRIS Bratislava 2017

Last week SIGMA attended to the euroCRIS Strategic Membership Meeting in Bratislava, Slovakia, in cooperation with the Slovak Centre of Scientific and Technical Information (CVTI SR). 


The theme of the Meeting was: Research Information and Open Science. There, SIGMA presented SIGMA Research, the solution for the whole Research lifecycle.


There was various information and many presentations on OpenData and OpenAccess. While it is clear that there is plenty to be currently worked on, the OpenScience movement is evolving rapidly and it became evident that there are a lot of initiatives, tools, and services related to it currently. The primary vision is to have a CRIS (Current Research Information System) that integrates the institutional repository of scientific publications with the Data Repository. In this way, the CRIS must be able to manage links to the digital publications and the Datasets (import/export). DSpace is a capable enough tool for this, but there are now many more: such as CKAN, and other initiatives.


There was also talk about advances in ORCID implantation, which, as a unique identifier for authors, is key for the advancement of OpenScience, and as such should also be the unique identifier of research projects.


It was debated about the reasons why the OpenScience (especially OpenData) is not already fully implemented:


          - Journal editors are not always fully aware of the OpenAccess Standards

          - Researchers are willing to deposit papers but lack the infrastructure to do so

          - Researcher have misperceptions about the principles of OpenAccess


As a relevant issue, a new CERIF data model is available at GitHubAfter many interesting sessions in the beautiful city of Bratislava, we could see a lot of examples and initiatives related to OpenScience, and focusing especially in OpenData, the current trend.
