OpenAIRE 2020/Advance

Results of the OpenAIRE Open Peer Review (OPR) can be seen here.

OpenAIRE is an e-infrastructure for storing research results produced with the EU support and making research information available via Open Access. Today, OpenAIRE gives access to more than 520 repositories and numerous OA journals, more that 9 million open publications and 1000 datasets, and documents and materials from 50 000 organisations and 30 000 projects.

The programme OpenAIRE 2020 applies the H2020 open access policies and powers regarding publications, and acts as a supporting infrastructure for the European Commission open research data pilot project. OpenAIRE 2020 is connected to the main IT systems of the EC and it acts as the main channel and instrument for disseminating information about the H2020 publications.

OpenAIRE Advance is the successor programme of the OpenAIRE Horizon 2020, aiming at the harmonisation of different national Open Science policies.

A network of National Open Access Desks (NOADs) staff members collects H2020 project outputs, and supports and assists in research data management. New workflows and services are created to make it possible to build a cooperative network of repositories which follow common guidelines and to facilitate uploading the data by using Zenodo into a universal repository. 

Starting from 2009, the UT Library acts as the Estonian NOAD; the UT digital archive on DSpace and the data repository DataDOI are interfaced with the OpenAIRE portal.
