Description

The Instituto Universitário de Lisboa (ISCTE-IUL) is a Portuguese public university with approximately 9000 students enrolled in undergraduate (46%) and postgraduate (54%) programs, 289 full time researchers, and 8 research centres. The major postgraduate areas include management, information technology and architecture, social sciences and public policy. ISCTE-IUL assumed a leading and pioneering role in Open Access Movement and in the implementation of institutional repositories in Portugal. The first initiatives dated from 2005, with the Institutional Repository development under the umbrella of Information and Documentation Services (SID), and involving the IT service. In 2007, the Repository was made publicly available, and the first version of the Self-Archive Open Access Policy was approved. This policy was adapted and published as a mandate in 2015. In 2013, the CRIS – Ciência-IUL (https://ciencia.iscte-iul.pt/) – became interoperable with the Repository. SID begun to validate the registers from both systems developing an accurate metadata validation workflow. SID validates the metadata and ensures that the author cannot make any changes. The interaction between both systems allows a unique entry for the scientific production. The concept embraces the "input once, re-use often" principle. It saves faculty and researchers’ efforts, and ensures compliance with the Open Access policies of funding institutions (such as EC and the major Portuguese public funder – FCT) and with publishers' self-archiving policies. The development of PTCRISync (synchronization framework) made possible the synchronization between Ciência-IUL and ORCID . In Portugal, ORCID is intended to be the central hub of the ecosystem, i.e. 1) a researcher may export its scientific production from local systems such as Ciência-IUL to ORCID; 2) the previous process makes the scientific production available to be retrieved from ORCID to other ecosystems (Ciência Vitae, Web of Science), and 3) to be imported from other ecosystems to ORCID (http://hdl.handle.net/10071/14797). SID has promoted advocacy, training sessions and counselling providing researchers with the skills that they need to practice Open Science. As example, we may refer some initiatives: in 2017, SID promoted a roadmap on Open Access involving research centres. In 2018, a research profile management training session was carried out involving these centres. More recently, SID designed and it is conducting a seminars’ cycle targeted to researchers on the main dimensions of Open Science. This talk is focused on describing the activities at ISCTE-IUL that aim to raise the awareness of the academic community for Open Science best practices. It is our goal to highlight the library’s role in research information management, working “collaboratively with other institution services to collect information, improve processes, reduce duplication, and accomplish goals they couldn´t do alone” (https://doi.org/10.25333/C3NK88).

Summary

ISCTE-IUL is a Portuguese public university with approximately 9000 students enrolled in undergraduate (46%) and postgraduate (54%) programs. The Repository of ISCTE-IUL is running since 2007 sustained by an Open Access Policy approved in the same year. In 2013, the current research information system – Ciência-IUL – became interoperable with the Repository bringing new challenges to SID, and allowing work collaboratively with other services to collect information, improve processes, and reduce duplication of efforts. SID seeks to support researchers throughout the research life cycle aiming to raise awareness of the academic community for Open Science best practices.
