International Open Access Week at the University of Nis

WP6 D1 Raising awareness on open science policies developed at national and institutional level
Oct 25, 2018

The University of Nis is joining the University of Novi Sad and promotes the Open Access Week among its own academic community.

Recently, the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development of Republic of Serbia adopted the Open Science Platform, which obliges all universities to create institutional repositories for depositing scientific research work. The University of Nis, within the Erasmus+ project BE-OPEN is going to create an institutional repository.

In order to facilitate the creation of pages for each researcher by downloading published data from existing databases, such as SCOPUS, it is necessary for all researchers to create their own ORCID account. By doing this, re-entering the research data by scientists will be avoided.

Having in mind this, the management team of the University of Nis send the email to the researchers asking them to create ORCID account and to support, both creation of the repository and Open Access Week.
