The European consortium OPERAS launches a survey on the uses of Open Access data
Openedition and its European partners have formed a consortium to develop a European infrastructure for open scholarly communication: OPERAS. The objective is to offer a set of services to improve the dissemination and referencing of scientific content in Open Access. The new services will benefit the research community, as well as those interested in accessing recent scientific resources, validated by the sientific community.
The OPERAS consortium is launching today a survey on the usage of Open Access, in particular in the field of humanities and social sciences. The purpose is to identify current practices and services that should be developed or invented. It will serve as a basis for defining the future infrastructure.
The survey addresses five different audiences, all actors, in various capacities, of Open Access: publishers, researchers, librarians, funders and the general public. It will collect information and suggestions mainly about common standards, good practices, new features and new integrated services.
The survey will end on 31st May 2017. Since all the OPERAS European partners are involved in the dissemination, the survey is entirely written in English in order to facilitate the processing of the answers.
The link for the general public’s survey is: https://survey.openedition.org/index.php/214336
It will take you 10 to 15 minutes to complete the survey.
