An update on the OpenAIRE Guidelines for Data Providers


When your repository is harvested by OpenAIRE, you will comply with the European Commission’s policy on Open Access, as well as the upcoming Horizon2020 mandate. All open access records, and records (closed or open) with funding information attached will be made more visible via OpenAIRE. This will assist the monitoring of OA policies.

In 2014 all the DRIVER OA repositories were brought into OpenAIRE in order to provide a consolidated and single entry point for OA publications in Europe and beyond. For literature repositories, OpenAIRE now specifies different status of compatibility depending on the guidelines version and the exposed content via OAI-Sets.
