Transparency, openness, verification, and reproducibility are important features of research and innovation. Open research helps to support and uphold these features across the whole lifecycle of research – improving public value, research integrity, re-use, and innovation. The Scholarly Kitchen brought this interesting information to our attention in their article, “Guest Post — Why Interoperability Matters for Open Research – And More than Ever.”
The constraints on researchers’ time continue to increase and funders, research institutions, and publishers are increasingly applying in-house policies for open research. We nevertheless have a duty to make compliance with those policies as easy and simple as possible.
Keeping interoperability simple is a crucial principle in today’s world of complex data interactions and disparate formats and standards. By focusing on a march toward simplicity and standardization, we can ensure that different devices, platforms, and applications can communicate with each other seamlessly. This not only improves efficiency and reduces costs but enhances user experiences and promotes innovation.
Making data accessible is something we know. Whatever the search, it is crucial to have a comprehensive search feature and quality indexing against a standards-based taxonomy. Choose the right partner in technology, especially when your content is in their hands. Access Innovations is known as a leader in database production, standards development, and creating and applying taxonomies.
