Projects

The library is hosting the Helmholtz Open Science Coordination Office and is an active member of the 'Arbeitskreis Open Science in der Helmholtz-Gemeinschaft'.

Since 2005 the Helmholtz Open Science Coordination Office is supporting scientists as well as their respective Helmholtz Centres in the implementation of open science. A dedicated newsletter and the Helmholtz Open Science Workshops are only two examples of how the Coordination Office is giving information and advice about new developments, strategies, and ideas.

One example of the successful work are the institutional repositories that most Helmholtz Centres are now running. These openly accessible document servers contain a significant and steadily growing share of the scientific publications of the Helmholtz Association.

Regular workshops support the development of an open science community inside the Helmholtz Association, including scientists who serve as editors or members of the review board of open access journals, advancing the idea of open science in their Helmholtz Centres.

Open access to research data will in future be an indispensable part of scientific work and will generate a considerable added value to science. Even today, data sharing is highly important for the many research centres within the Helmholtz Association.

Contributions to the DFG project ORCID DE

Die Open Researcher and Contributor ID, kurz ORCID, ist eine eindeutige Kennung für Forscherinnen und Forscher und ermöglicht die Vernetzung der zum wissenschaftlichen Arbeitsprozess Beitragenden mit ihren Publikationen, Forschungsdaten und anderen Produkten des Forschungsprozesses (wie zum Beispiel Software).

Das der Initiative zugrundeliegende internationale ORCID-Konsortium vernetzt weltweit bereits über 2 Millionen Publizierende mit ihren Aufsätzen und Forschungsdaten über eine eindeutige ID. Um die auch in Deutschland vielerorts erwogene Implementierung der ORCID an Hochschulen und außeruniversitären Forschungseinrichtungen zu fördern wurde das Projektvorhaben „ORCID DE – Förderung der Open Researcher and Contributor ID in Deutschland“ ins Leben gerufen. Dieses wurde durch die Deutsche Initiative für Netzwerkinformation (DINI) initiiert und wird von der Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) seit Anfang 2016 für drei Jahre gefördert.

Im Rahmen des Projekts soll die Implementierung der ORCID an Hochschulen und außeruniversitären Forschungseinrichtungen durch einen übergreifenden Ansatz nachhaltig unterstützt werden und durch die stärkere Koordinierung lokal stattfindender Einzelaktivitäten Synergien erzeugt werden. Dabei sollen im Zuge des Projekts organisatorische, technische und rechtliche Fragen adressiert und Lösungen hierfür entwickelt werden. Neben der Schaffung einer zentralen Anlaufstelle für Hochschulen und außeruniversitäre Forschungseinrichtungen sind die Vernetzung und Verbreitung der ORCID im Bereich von Open-Access-Repositorien und -Publikationdiensten im Kontext der Bielefeld Academic Search Engine (BASE) sowie die Verzahnung mit der Gemeinsamen Normdatei (GND) wesentliche Aspekte des Projekts.

Das Helmholtz Open Science Koordinationsbüro am Deutschen GeoForschungsZentrum GFZ trägt mit seiner Projektbeteiligung seiner Verantwortung für die Weiterentwicklung des wissenschaftlichen Informationsmanagements in Deutschland Rechnung und unterstreicht dabei den eigenen Anspruch, hierbei eine federführende und koordinierende Rolle auszuüben.

Projektbeginn

Das Projekt startete offiziell am 01. Mai 2016.

The library contributes to the DFG project DeepGreen continuing the “Open Access Transformation” in Germany.

Continuing the “Open Access Transformation” in Germany is the goal of a German Research Foundation (DFG) funding line of the same name. One of the projects granted as part of this funding line in July 2015 is “DeepGreen”.

With regard to scientific publications which, based on license rights, can be made freely accessible following embargo periods, the project DeepGreen aims to actually make them available in Open Access. The project focuses on licenses funded by the DFG and negotiated at the national level, the so-called Alliance licenses. They include specific Open Access regulations. However, since the first Alliance agreements were concluded in 2011, experience has shown that the circle of qualified authors (or their institutional representatives) has hardly made use of the Open Access rights that have been agreed upon.

During a project phase running two years, DeepGreen will implement (in a user-friendly manner) the negotiated Open Access conditions at the technical level and, if possible, automatize this as much as possible. That way, authors would no longer have to manually add publications to Open Access repositories – nor would this task have to be carried out by the libraries entitled to do so. Instead, publishers themselves can regularly deliver publications via specified interfaces.

To this end, the project partners (University Library of Erlangen-Nürnberg, the Library of the Technical University of Berlin, the Helmholtz Open Science Coordination Office based at the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences, the Bavarian State Library and the Library Networks Bibliotheksverbund Bayern and Kooperativer Bibliotheksverbund Berlin-Brandenburg) are setting up a technical platform which will serve as a data hub: participating publishers can add their publications and metadata via interfaces, while entitled institutional or disciplinary Open Access repositories can then be provided with that data. It was possible to get the publishers Karger and SAGE on board as pilot partners.

The project launched on January 1st 2016. The project is coordinated by the Kooperativer Bibliotheksverbund Berlin-Brandenburg.

The library participates in the DFG project "Fachinformationsdienst Geowissenschaften der festen Erde (FID GEO)" in partnership with the SUB Göttingen.

FID GEO is a project that implements advanced information and publication services for the geoscientific community in Germany. Its focus is on the geosciences of the solid earth. FID GEO is funded by “Specialised Information Services Programme” of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), which establishes a number of discipline-specific “Fachinformationsdienste (FID)” in Germany. FIDs supplement existing information infrastructures at universities and research institutions, providing additional services nationwide.

Project partners

  • Niedersächsische Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek Göttingen (SUB Göttingen) 
  • GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences

Tasks

SUB Göttingen focuses on digitization and electronic publication of so-called "grey literature" and digitization of other print products and maps not protected (anymore) by German copyright. The main task of GFZ is to set up a service for the publication of research data (data supplements to traditional journal publications). Both project partners are proactive in providing advice to the geoscientific community, institutions, organisations and publishers regarding electronic publication to foster open access to scientific products including text, research data, software etc.

Coordination Niedersächsische Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek Göttingen

Start 01 June 2016

The library contributes to the DFG project re3data.org - Registry of Research Data Repositories

The goal of re3data.org was to create a global registry of research data repositories. The registry covers research data repositories from different academic disciplines. re3data.org presents repositories for the permanent storage and access of data sets to researchers, funding bodies, publishers and scholarly institutions. In the course of this mission re3data.org aims to promote a culture of sharing, increased access and better visibility of research data. In the first phase of the project the following tasks are prioritized:

  • the conception and construction of a web-based registry of research data repositories,
  • the definition of selection criteria of research data repositories,
  • the formulation of a metadata schema to describe research data repositories.

re3data.org was funded by the German Research Foundation DFG in the period 2011 to 2016.

From 2016 on, the service will be managed and furter developed by Datacite https://www.datacite.org.

Partners GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences GFZ Berlin School of Library and Information Science (IBI) KIT Library (KIT) The partners are actively involved in the German Initiative for Network Information (DINI).
