New resources available on the EOSC Portal!

Introduction

Around 22 resources have been made available on the EOSC portal. Researchers from many different fields can benefit from the newly available resources, which range from historical archives, open scholarship to an array of data collection, analysis and research-sharing services for the entire research life cycle.

Continue reading for a summary of the latest resources available on the EOSC marketplace and see how they can be useful for your research needs.

BeGrenzte Flucht

This archival service collects data on persecuted Austrians who fled to the Czechoslovakian border in 1938. This edition assembles documents from Czech, Austrian and other sources for the first time.

Other details:

  • Target users: Research communities
  • Access types: Virtual
  • Access modes: Free

Other services were also recently made available by the European Holocaust Research Infrastructure:

Episciences

This overlay journal platform allows researchers to share their research work as pre-prints, which are hosted on open repositories (e.g. arXiv, HAL, Zenodo). Journals hosted by the Episciences platform are diamond open access journals and, thus, adhere to FAIR principles.

Other details:

  • Target users: Funders, Researchers, Innovators, Policymakers, Research communities, Research groups
  • Access types: Remote
  • Life cycle status: Production

OpenCitations

This open scholarship service provides more than one billion citations data that can be accessed and reused via SPARQL endpoints and REST APIs. OpenCitations promotes the publication of open bibliographic and citation information using Semantic Web technologies.

Other details:

  • Target users: Funders, Resource managers, Research managers, Researchers, Policy Makers, Research organisations, Providers
  • Access types: Virtual
  • Technology readiness level: TRL-8

SSH Open Marketplace

The service’s discovery portal pools and contextualises resources for research communities in the social sciences and humanities. The Marketplace highlights and showcases solutions and research practices for every step of the SSH research data life cycle.
