OpenAIRE Task Forces

The task forces are a new programme in OpenAIRE Advance to enable capacity building, competencies and awareness raising on different relevant open science topics, involving all partners and NOADs, demonstrating a vertical approach for knowledge exchange. NOADs with more engaged activity levels are involved throughout and are also encouraged to facilitate these groups, aiming to strengthen understanding, steer project activities and, mobilise community ties.

In OpenAIRE Advance there are three task forces (at the bottom of the page you find useful resources (guidelines, blogs, checklists, etc):

  • Policies for Open Access and Open Science
  • Research Data Management
  • Legal Guidelines for Research Performing Organisations (RPOs)
Research Data Management Toolkit

This toolkit includes a number of resources on research data management. However, due to its broad scope, the toolkit is not structured as an online course.It contains courses, videos, infographics, books and other materials

How to make the most of your publications in the humanities?

The workshop jointly organized by FOSTER Plus and DARIAH-EU will focus on domain-specific practices of opening up scholarly communication in Arts and Humanities. Publishing is a relevant topic for each and every researcher regardless on career status or research interest. The workshop aims to draw a picture on the changing landscape of scholarly communication and to help equip researchers at all career stages (focusing on early-career researchers) with the skills they need to excel in this open environment.

To share best practices and generate fruitful discussions on trends, innovations, and present-day challenges in Open Access publishing in the Arts and Humanities, different stakeholder perspectives will be brought together such as representatives of next-generation publishing platforms, research infrastructures, librarians, and researchers from different areas and career stages.

Research Data Management and Sharing

This course will provide learners with an introduction to research data management and sharing. After completing this course, learners will understand the diversity of data and their management needs across the research data lifecycle, be able to identify the components of good data management plans, and be familiar with best practices for working with data including the organization, documentation, and storage and security of data. Learners will also understand the impetus and importance of archiving and sharing data as well as how to assess the trustworthiness of repositories.

 

Train-the-trainer concept for research data management

As part of the project FDMentor, a German-language train-the-trainer program on research data management was created and piloted in a series of workshops. The comments and tips from the participants in the two pilot phases and the feedback from the relevant community were gradually incorporated over 2019. The second version of the train-the-trainer concept now available offers a revised script with the contents of the teaching units, detailed teaching scripts, working materials, lecture slides and numerous worksheets and templates that are intended to support teaching. The topics covered include both aspects of research data management, such as data management plans and the publication of research data, as well as didactic units on learning concepts.

Guidelines on FAIR Data Management in Horizon 2020

Guidelines to help researchers make their research data findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR), to ensure sound managementd. Good research data management is not a goal in itself, but rather the key conduit leading to knowledge discovery and innovation, and to subsequent data and knowledge integration and reuse.

DANS Data Game

DANS has developed a game especially for researchers: the DANS Data Game. The game gives an impression of the research data landscape and was specially produced for the 15th anniversary of DANS. The game can also be used in Trainings to engage researchers and start discussions. The game can be ordered online free of charge and will later also be available digitally.
