Manghi P. OpenAIRE - Data Model Specification. Open Access Infrastructure for Research in Europe. Deliverable D5.1, 2010.
The OpenAIRE web site will offer functionalities for administrators, anonymous and registered users to manage an Information Space of FP7-funded open access publications. The aim of this document is to describe the conceived structure and semantics of this Information Space, i.e., the Open AIRE data model, by providing an abstract definition of its main entities and the relationships between them. In this definitional process, the intended interaction (Task 7.2) between the OpenAIRE Information Space and the EC Participant Portal software systems (e.g., CORDIS web site and CORDA database) plays an important role in the specification of project data, i.e., how project data should be described, stored and exported in OpenAIRE. At this stage of interaction, we shall consider as authoritative sources for project data the CORDIS web site and the relative CORDA database, which contain information on projects and participants in FP7. As such, we shall store project information adopting a schema inspired by CORDIS. Furthermore, with regard to data export, the results of projects such as CERIF and KECRIS- OAR are taken into account as inspiring guidelines. Finally, the document will analyze the impact of the OpenAIRE data model on the repository managers willing to expose, through OAI-PMH interfaces, metadata conforming to the OpenAIRE Information Space, so as to avoid double ingestion work to their researchers.
