Please disseminate this message through all relevant channels.

The OpenAIRE Guidelines 2.0 provide the OpenAIRE compatibility to
repositories and aggregators.
By implementing these Guidelines, repository managers are facilitating the
authors who deposit their publications in the repository in complying with
the EC Open Access requirements. For developers of repository platforms,
the Guidelines provide guidance to add supportive functionalities for
authors of EC-funded research in future versions.

In comparison with previous versions of the Guidelines, version 2.0
introduces two main changes:

   1. Support for aggregators to become OpenAIRE compatible in order to
   expose their metadata to the OpenAIRE infrastructure.

    2. Extended namespace for project identification. The extended
   namespace is intended to support a generic way of expressing project
   information, allowing its use not only for EC/FP projects, but ideally for
   any funder and project (national or international). Although the use of the
   extended namespace is recommended, repositories and journals that are
   already OpenAIRE compatible will remain compatible with no additional work,
   by using only the mandatory parts (which are the same as in the OpenAIRE
   Guidelines 1.1).

Regarding this second point, to express project information, in future
versions of the Guidelines more sustainable solutions will be sought. This
may include the introduction of vocabularies for funders and funding
programmes, the presentation of this information in a linked data fashion
and compatibility with the CERIF standard.

If you have comments or experiences with the implementation of the
Guidelines, we would like to receive them. Please send your feedback to
Eloy Rodrigues (UMINHO, eloy a sdum.uminho.pt).
