Data model 

The aim of this deliverable is to describe how the OpenAIRE data model is extended for the representation of artefacts different from publications and datasets. In particular, OpenAIRE-Connect extends the OpenAIRE data model with: (i) entities for there presentation of research communities, research methods and research packages; (ii) relationships between those new entities and the already existing OpenAIRE entities; (iii) new controlled vocabularies for properties of research methods and packages; and(iv) new termstobeaddedtocontrolledvocabulariesalreadyinusebytheOpenAIREinfrastructure. Requirements have been collected from the research communities involved in OpenAIRE-Connect, which helpedthedefinitionofthemodelextensionsbyspecifyingtheircurrentpracticeanddesiderataaboutthe publishingofresearchartefactsintheirspecificdiscipline.Inadditiontotherequirementsoftheresearch communities, requirements and expectations from the existing "consumers" of the OpenAIRE infrastructure, including data sources (providing content to OpenAIRE), portal end-users of various roles (researchers, project coordinators, general public, research communities), OpenAIRE data curators (responsibleoftheworkflowsforcollecting,harmonizing,de-duplicating,inferringcontent),andthird-party services(accessing content via APIs), have been considered. The data model will be subject to changes in the future, depending on the evolution of the requirements of the OpenAIRE infrastructure and of the communities involved in OpenAIRE-Connect.
