EC Recommendation on Access to and Preservation of Scientific Information, in Support of Open ScienceBy Thomas Bourke on May 9, 2018
The European Commission published a new Recommendation on Access to, and Preservation of, Scientific Information on 25 April, to promote the transition to open science in the European Union. The recommendation provides guidance on incentives for openness; research data management; text and data mining; and technical standards for the re-use of research content. The European Commission published a roadmap for the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) 14 March 2018. The EOSC is a “pan-European federation of research data infrastructures, with a view to moving from the current fragmentation, to a situation where data is easy to store, find, share and re-use.”

The new EUI ResData repository was launched at the Library’s open access roundtable in October 2017 and already hosts twelve substantial EUI research datasets. ResData provides EUI scholars with a sustainable solution for archiving research datasets, and supports the European Union’s mandate that – where possible – research data outputs be openly shared. Open data – a key pillar of open science – refers to the trend among scholars, government agencies and international organisations to share datasets, codebooks and software via the internet.
The 6th edition of the EUI Library’s Research Data Guide was published on 1 March 2018. New content and updates relate to: preparation of datasets for inclusion in the EUI ResData repository; data management plans (DMPs); handling and use of research data during the project cycle; data protection and copyright; and compliance with EU research data requirements in Horizon 2020.
