The OpenAIRE Guidelines for Content Providers describe and expose different types of research artifacts, providing basic metadata, vocabularies, protocols, and illustrating best practices that come from the library world (proper description and curation), while covering the recent trends in research infrastructures. They are well fitted to bridge the interoperability gaps between research infrastructures at large, their implementation being the stepping-stone for a linked data infrastructure for research, providing a 3600 contextual view of research.
The OpenAIRE Guidelines allow content providers to expose metadata about their research products in a uniform, broadly accepted format, thereby maximizing their accessibility, interoperability, findability, and support of reproducibility according to FAIR data principles.
OpenAIRE offers five different sets of Guidelines for content providers covering a variety of research products:
- Guidelines for Institutional and Thematic Repositories and Publishing Platforms ;
- Guidelines for Data Archive Managers ;
- Guidelines for Software Repository Managers ;
- Guidelines for Other Research Products ;
- Guidelines for CRIS Managers.
