[InetBib] Open Journal Systems now compliant with OpenAIRE: New plug-in released

- Apologies for cross-posting -

We are pleased to announce that Open Journal Systems (OJS) has now 
released a plug-in to support OpenAIRE compliance

*Open Journal Systems now compliant with OpenAIRE: New plug-in released*

02 FEBRUARY 2011

Open Journal Systems (OJS), the widely used online journal management 
and publishing system, now includes a plug-in to support authors' 
compliance with the European open access policies, i.e. the European 
Commission's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) Open Access Pilot and the 
European Research Council (ERC) Scientific Council Guidelines for Open 
Access. While submitting their articles to an OJS-based journal authors 
can now easily acknowledge the related project funding.

The plugin modifies the OAI interface of the OJS software and provides a 
set of all publications resulting from EC/ERC project funding. OpenAIRE 
harvests the publications from open access repositories and journals, 
and presents the aggregated collection at the OpenAIRE portal.

The new plug-in has been developed by the Freie Universität Berlin 
within a project funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and is 
available at the PKP Plugin Gallery at http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum. 
Releases of the OJS software from 2.3.4 onwards, available at 
http://pkp.sfu.ca/ojs_download, will include this plug-in.

Katja Mruck, project manager at the Freie Universität, says "OpenAIRE 
compliance makes it very easy for OJS-journal authors and publishers to 
provide their articles to OpenAIRE. This highlights the contribution of 
OJS journals to the publication and open access dissemination of FP7 
funded research results."

OpenAIRE(Open Access Infrastructure for Research in Europe), a project 
funded within the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), welcomes this 
contribution of OJS developers and users to the implementation of the 
European open access policies. Based on this new functionality OpenAIRE 
will integrate OJS open access journals into its network of open 
repositories providing free online access to knowledge produced by 
researchers receiving grants from the EC or the ERC. OpenAIRE 
establishes infrastructures to support researchers in compliance through 
a European Helpdesk System covering 27 European countries, an OpenAIRE 
portal launched on December 2, 2010, and e-infrastructure for repository 
networks and explores scientific data management services together with 
5 disciplinary communities.

*About *

The Center for Digital Systems (CeDiS) at Freie Universität Berlin, in 
cooperation with the Public Knowledge Project (PKP) at Simon Fraser 
University, currently conducts a project 
(http://pkp.sfu.ca/wiki/index.php/Projectdescription_FU_Berlin) funded 
by the German Research Foundation. The project develops various 
functionalities of the OJS software, including new features supporting 
the publication of review articles, compatibility with service providers 
as the German National Library and VG Wort, as well as the adaption of 
the software for DRIVER and OpenAIRE compliance.

Open Journal Systems (OJS, http://pkp.sfu.ca/?q=ojs) is an online 
journal management and publishing system that has been developed by the 
Public Knowledge Project (PKP) through its federally funded efforts to 
expand and improve access to research. It was launched in 2002 as open 
source software and is used by over 8,000 titles, the vast majority open 
access, and includingnearly 1,000 journals based in European countries.

OpenAIRE (Open Access Infrastructure for Research in Europe, 
http://www.openaire.eu <http://www.openaire.eu/>), a project funded 
within the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), develops a network of open 
repositories providing free online access to knowledge produced by 
researchers receiving grants from the European Commission or the 
European Research Council. The main goal of OpenAIRE is to support the 
Open Access pilot, launched by the EC in August 2008, and covering about 
20% of the FP7 budget.  Researchers from seven thematic areas (Health, 
Energy, Environment, Information & Communication Technology, Research 
Infrastructures, Socio-economic sciences & Humanities and Science in 
Society) are required to deposit their research publications in an 
institutional or disciplinary open access repository, to be made 
available worldwide in full text.
