Open Access repositories for scientific literature and research data

Piergentili, Irene; Dal Pra, Stefano

The Open Access Repository (OAR) project was started to implement Open Access policies and to preserve and share the scientific research results, including research data, of INFN authors. With the approval of the “Disciplinare per l’accesso aperto ai prodotti della ricerca dell’INFN” document, in July 2023, OAR officially became the INFN's institutional repository. In the past two years we studied the optimization of our institutional repository through the bulk upload of both digital and scanned documents, such as INFN Technical Notes and documents related to the ADONE project (1969-1993). Moreover, since 2023, a collaboration with INFN-CNAF has been established to migrate the current instance of the repository (v3) to an updated  InvenioRDM (CERN) release (v11.0: the current latest stable release at the time of writing). To better support the OAR migration recent activities have been mainly focused on the record upload process, exploiting the following topics: authentication, metadata customization, author and entity names disambiguation and product approval flow management. In addition to the study of the repository structure, we worked on communication as well, introducing the tool to users through a specific website, and user training activities about the use of OAR.
