1. HIRMEOS in a Nutshell

High Integration of Research Monographs in the European Open Science infrastructure (HIRMEOS) is a 30-month project funded under the Horizon 2020 Program of the European Commission. HIRMEOS supports the network of OPERAS, a distributed Research Infrastructure project for open scholarly communication. OPERAS’ main goal is to introduce the principle of Open Science and to ensure effective dissemination and global access to research results in the Social Sciences and Humanities.

The main goal of HIRMEOS is to integrate Open Access monographs into the open science ecosystem. It aims at prototyping innovative services for monographs in support of Open Science infrastructure by providing additional data, links and interactions to the documents, at the same time paving the way to new potential tools for research assessment, which is still a major challenge in the Humanities and Social Sciences. By improving already existing publishing platforms and repositories participating in the OpenAIRE infrastructure, the HIRMEOS project will increase its impact and help including more disciplines into the Open Science paradigm, widening its boundaries towards the Humanities and Social Sciences and to reach out new fields up to now poorly integrated.

 

 The partners of the project consortium are 9 Institutions from 6 European Countries:
