Commentary by Stephen Downes

As Stevan Harnad writes, via email, "OpenAIRE is a central harvester of peer-reviewed research from European institutional repositories (IRs)." (See also) Its objectivesare:

  • build support structures for researchers in depositing research publications
  • establish and operate an electronic infrastructure for handling peer-reviewed articles
  • explore the requirements, practices, incentives, workflows, data models, and technologies to deposit, access, and otherwise manipulate research datasets

As Harnad writes, "Deposit institutionally (once only) and harvest centrally (to as manyfunder-based or subject-based repositories as desired)." This, too, should be the model for educational resources.
