OPERAS Scientific Advisory Committee - Members

OPERAS is a dynamic and community driven Research Infrastructure supporting 
open scholarly communication in the social sciences and humanities (SSH) in the 
European Research Area. Its mission is to coordinate and federate resources in 
Europe to efficiently address the scholarly communication needs of European 
researchers. OPERAS' vision is to make Open Science a reality for research and 
to achieve a scholarly communication system where knowledge produced in the SSH 
benefits researchers, academics, and students fully and widely, and where it 
also benefits the whole society across Europe and worldwide, without barriers.
OPERAS is the leading European infrastructure for scholarly communication in 
SSH and brings together partners from various European countries to strengthen 
the infrastructure for open scholarly communication and to support research in 
the Humanities and Social Sciences. OPERAS aims to coordinate efforts, align 
services, promote standards, and develop new, shared services for researchers, 
libraries and open access publishers.

The OPERAS RI (AISBL) establishes a new governance system. It is driven by an 
Executive Assembly composed of 10 members and managed by a General Assembly. To 
support the Executive Assembly by taking decisions we are seeking for 
international experts to give advice on OPERAS scientific activities, 
priorities, and services.

The Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) will be an independent body, composed 
by 5 to 10 experts, providing advice and recommendations to the Executive 
Assembly on the ethical, scientific and technical current and future projects 
as well as OPERAS activities. For instance, OPERAS SAC will contribute in 
defining the scientific, technical, and ethical criteria for our discovery 
platform and is invited to give advice to specific issues related to resources 
harvesting and content providers and to shape the path of the infrastructures 
Be part of a dynamic, multidisciplinary and international network shaping the 
research publication structure of tomorrow! Help us to learn more about the SSH 
researchers needs and aims and help us to open the doors for Open Science for 
SSH in Europe and worldwide.
For the Scientific Advisory Committee OPERAS searches for researchers, 
publishers, librarians, engineers that are experts in one or more of the 
following topics: Social Sciences and Humanities, Scholarly Communication, Open 
Science, Digital infrastructures. The experts will have an international or

domain covered by OPERAS AISBL. Application is open to early-career as well as

the selection of the candidates.
