Open Access Infrastructure for Research in Europe (OpenAIRE) is an EU-funded project to build e-infrastructure supporting researcher compliance with the European Research Council Guidelines on Open Access and the European Commission's Open Access Pilot. In addition to developing software packages supporting the harvesting, enriching and storing metadata from Open Access publications and scientific datasets, OpenAIRE provides Orphan Repository & Search service for EU-funded projects.

repository infrastructure is a repository (developed and managed by Edina) designed to ensure that all academics worldwide can share in the benefits of making their research output Open Access. For those whose organisations have an online repository, uses OARJ to direct authors to appropriate repositories. For those without a local repository (such as unaffilitiated researchers), the OpenDepot is a place of deposit, available for others to harvest.

notable repository
RJ Broker

Repository Junction Broker (RJ Broker) is a middleware system (in development by Edina for RepositoryNet+) designed to provide an API enabling discovery of possible target repositories into which open access research can be deposited. Previously known as Open Access Repository Junction (OARJ), it also provides a delivery tool to disseminate items to multiple repositories.

Note: RJ Broker is one of the repository infrastructure components supported in 'Wave 1' of RepositoryNet+.

repository infrastructure

RoMEO is a registry service (developed and managed by University of Nottingham) specifying publisher copyright and archiving policies. RoMEO summarises publisher copyright rules about deposit in institutional repositories and shows which publishers comply with funding agencies conditions on open access.
