Zenodo - Research Shared

Built and developed by researchers, to ensure that everyone can join in Open Science. The OpenAIRE project, in the vanguard of the open access and open data movements in Europe was commissioned by the EC to support their nascent Open Data policy by providing a catch-all repository for EC funded research. CERN, an OpenAIRE partner and pioneer in open source, open access and open data, provided this capability and Zenodo was launched in May 2013. In support of its research programme CERN has developed tools for Big Data management and extended Digital Library capabilities for Open Data. Through Zenodo these Big Science tools could be effectively shared with the long­-tail of research. Zenodo is derived from Zenodotus, the first librarian of the Ancient Library of Alexandria and father of the first recorded use of metadata, a landmark in library history. Zenodo in a nutshell: a) Research. Shared. — all research outputs from across all fields of research are welcome! Sciences and Humanities, really; b) Citeable. Discoverable. — uploads gets a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) to make them easily and uniquely citeable; c) Communities — create and curate your own community for a workshop, project, department, journal, into which you can accept or reject uploads. Your own complete digital repository; d) Funding — identify grants, integrated in reporting lines for research funded by the European Commission via OpenAIRE; e) Flexible licensing — because not everything is under Creative Commons; f) Safe — your research output is stored safely for the future in the same cloud infrastructure as CERN's own LHC research data. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Entrepreneurial Resources Subject Tracer™.
