OpenAIRE has issued interoperability guidelines in the frameowrk of Research Information Systems (CRIs) based on CERIF-XML, specifically targeted to the harvesting of CRIS Systems by the central OpenAIRE infrastructure.
At a technical level, OpenAIRE relies heavily on the uptake of its ‘guidelines’ whereby data providers implement a set of common metadata fields, in order to expose and make visible their wide range of content to OpenAIRE. There are three types of guidelines to reflect the content gathered: literature repository guidelines, data archives guidelines and this current draft version of the CRIS guidelines.
Stakeholders are invited to take part in the public review
The following materials are available for review:-
- The main OpenAIRE Guidelines for CRIS Managers based on CERIF XML document
- The OpenAIRE CERIF XML Schema
- A number of examples of metadata encoded in OpenAIRE CERIF XML for transport as OAI-PMH payload (CERIF_XML_OAI-PMH_examples)
The review closes on the 28th March 2014 at 12:00 PM CET.
