Houssos, Nikos, Joerg, Brigitte ORCID logoORCID: and Dvořák, Jan (2015) OpenAIRE guidelines for CRIS managers 1.0. OpenAIRE. [Other] (doi:10.5281/zenodo.17065)


The Guidelines specify the interoperability layer between Current Research Information Systems (CRIS) and the OpenAIRE infrastructure. The information interchange is based on the Common European Research Information Format (CERIF) data model, the CERIF XML exchange format, and the OAI-PMH protocol. The Guidelines are intended mainly for implementers and administrators of CRIS who plan to communicate research information to OpenAIRE. OpenAIRE ( is the European infrastructure enabling researchers to comply with the European Union requirements for Open Access to research results. OpenAIRE collects metadata from a variety of data sources: publication repositories, data archives and CRIS across Europe and beyond. Interoperability guidelines are defined for each type of source. CERIF is a standard data model for research information and a recommendation by the European Union to its Member States. The custody of CERIF has been entrusted by the Euoropean Union to euroCRIS (, an international not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the interoperability of CRIS.
