For purposes of exploring research publications, OpenAIRE provides great starting point. However, if there is a need to evaluate, monitor or assess some part of research done on an institutional, national or international level, the contents fall short.

One major findings of the ENRESSHs projects is that for a research publication database it is of great importance to be able to have a complete and inclusive set of research outputs for it to be used in any form of assessment or evaluation of research. High quality metadata would be achieved by extending the mandatory and conditional attributes that are required from the source systems. This approach is similar to what is done on national level in e.g. VIRTA and was further explored in ENRESSH-VIRTA-POC. The CERIF data model, maintained by EuroCRIS, is a logical candidate, given its high level of sophistication, and broad coverage of research information. As another benefit of using CERIF is that there are many systems already aiming for compliance of their system in CERIF format e.g. for use in OpenAIRE harvesting.

For a lightning talk to be held at euroCRIS, a draft of the data model for European Publication Information Infrastructure will be discussed. The work for this draft was done on a short-term scientific mission of the ENRESSH working group 3 during June 2019. For the talk, a summary of minimum CERIF data model elements needed in research publication metadata transfers considering CRIS systems and national aggregators in European context and an outline of implementing this in European Publication Information Infrastructure will be shared with colleagues during the euroCRIS meeting.
