Blog post: Implementing OpenAIRE Guidelines for CRIS Managers “Lessons Learned” by the Dutch aggregator NARCIS Portal

Press/Media: Public Engagement Activities


In the context of the Horizon 2020 project OpenAIRE Advance, the institute DANS (Data archiving and Networked Services) in the Netherlands implemented the OpenAIRE CRIS/CERIF Guidelines using a CRIS on a national level: NARCIS Portal.

This blog describes the "lessons learned" during the technical implementation of the OpenAIRE (OA) CERIF-XML profile for CRIS managers into the NARCIS domain. This implementation has been part of Subtask 6.1.2. Interoperability - Connecting with CRIS-CERIF. In general: the creation of the CERIF-entities is accomplished by XSLT-transformations of the native NARCIS internal format where possible.
