OpenProceedings

Open Access to Conference Proceedings

OpenProceedings is a service to the scientific community that originated from the desire of two major Computer Science conferences (EDBT—International Conference on Extending Database Technology, ICDT—International Conference on Database Theory) to make their papers available to the general public for free, following an Open Access strategy.

ICDT and EDBT started this Open Access publication platform and also make it available to other high-profile, peer-reviewed Conference Proceedings. The service is hosted at the University of Konstanz and its University Library, who have a renowned track record of encouraging and supporting Open Access publications.

All material published on OpenProceedings is copyright protected. In contrast to most commercial publishers, copyright remains with the authors, though. All we require from the authors is that they grant a publishing license, typically Creative Commons CC-by-nc-nd 4.0, that permits OpenProceedings as well as others to (re-)distribute the original works. In particular, authors are free to put identical copies on their Web pages and into institutional repositories.

dblp computer science bibliography

The dblp computer science bibliography is the on-line reference for bibliographic information on major computer science publications. It has evolved from an early small experimental web server to a popular open-data service for the whole computer science community. Our mission at dblp is to support computer science researchers in their daily efforts by providing free access to high-quality bibliographic meta-data and links to the electronic editions of publications.

As of January 2019, dblp indexes over 4.4 million publications, published by more than 2.2 million authors. To this end, dblp indexes about than 40,000 journal volumes, more than 39,000 conference and workshop proceedings, and more than 80,000 monographs. Please find more statistics on dblp here.

2nd Open Science FAIR Conference

Open Science is a new research paradigm facing many challenges, mainly the ingrained research habits accompanied by non-incentive institutional and funder reward systems, the lack of embedded tools and services, the connection to non-academic communities.

OSFair2019 is organized as an emblematic initiative of OpenAIRE, co-organized by 3 other EU projects in the area of Open Science: FIT4RRI, EOSC Secretariat and FAIRsFAIR. It is locally curated by the University of Minho.

Open Science Fair will critically showcase the elements required for the transition to Open Science: e-infrastructures and services, policies as guidance for good practices, research flows and new types of activities (disseminate, mine, review, assess, etc.), the roles of the respective actors and their networks.
