Open Access Week 2016: representing projects on OpenAIR


Our final blog post for Open Access Week 2016 showcases a new feature on OpenAIR. The new feature is project collections. These offer an innovative way of grouping items that might otherwise be dispersed elsewhere on the repository, enabling users to view links to all outputs associated with a single research project on a single page. They are accompanied by an image, which helps to develop a visual identity for the project. These images are either taken from among the project outputs, or from open access resources. A project collection also features some summary text, which gives a brief background to the context of the research.

We currently have three examples of project collections already on OpenAIR (see screenshots below), and several more are being developed. The full set of existing project collections can be viewed here. If you are interested in getting some of your projects represented on OpenAIR, contact the team at and we will be happy to help.
