Blue Cloud - D4.2: Blue Cloud VRE Common Facilities (Release 1)
Assante M., Candela L., Pagano P., Dell'Amico A., Coro G., Cirillo R., Frosini L., Lelii L., Lettere M., Mangiacrapa F., Panichi G., Sinibaldi F.
The Blue-Cloud project plans to pilot a cyber platform bringing together and providing access to multidisciplinary data from observations and models, analytical tools, and computing facilities essential to support research to understand better and manage the many aspects of ocean sustainability. To achieve this goal, Blue-Cloud is developing, deploying, and operating the Blue-Cloud platform whose architecture consists of two families of components: (a) the Blue Cloud Data Discovery and Access service component to serve federated discovery and access to 'blue data' infrastructures; and (b) the Blue Cloud Virtual Research Environment (VRE) component to provide a Blue Cloud VRE as a federation of computing platforms and analytical services. This deliverable presents the Blue Cloud Virtual Research Environment constituents by focusing on both new services and revised existing services that have been developed in the reporting period to serve the needs of the Blue Cloud community. In particular, this deliverable describes a total of 11 services and components. These services and components contribute functionalities to the Blue Cloud VRE Enabling Framework (Identity and Access Management, VRE Management), Collaborative framework (Workspace and Social Networking), Analytics Framework (Software and Algorithm Importer, Smart Executor), Publishing Framework (Catalogue Service) and improved support for RStudio, JupyterHub, ShinyProxy, and Docker Applications. The services are described below by reporting their design principles, architectures, and main features. The deliverable also describes the procedures and approaches governing services and components released by highlighting how Gitea (as Git hosting service), Jenkins (as automation server), and Maven (as project management and comprehension tool) are used to guarantee continuous integration processes. Services and components discussed in this deliverable contribute to 11 gCube open-source software system releases (from gCube 4.16 up to gCube 4.25.1) and are in the pipeline for the next ones. They have been used to develop and operate the Virtual Laboratories of the Blue Cloud gateway https://blue-cloud.d4science.org and its underlying infrastructure. At the time of this deliverable (November 2020), the gateway hosts a total of 8 VREs and VLabs, including five specifically conceived to support the co-development of some of the Blue-Cloud demonstrators (namely, the Aquaculture Atlas Generation for Demonstrator #5, the Blue-Cloud Lab for several demonstrators, the GRSF pre for Demonstrator #4, the Marine Environmental Indicators for Demonstrator #3, the Zoo-Phytoplankton EOV for Demonstrator #1). This gateway and its tools serve more than 400 users that (since January 2020) performed a total of more than 5000 working sessions, more than 1700 accesses to the Workspace, and more than 750 analytics tasks. These exploitation and uptake indicators are likely to grow in the coming months thanks to data updates and continued use, further development of existing VLabs, and finally, the creation of new ones.Source: Project Report, Blue Cloud, D4.2, 2020

The OpenAIRE research graph: third-party publishing APIs
Atzori C., Baglioni M., Bardi A., Manghi P., La Bruzzo S., De Bonis M., Dell'Amico A., Artini M., Mannocci A., Ottonello E.
This work describes the specification of the OpenAIRE publishing APIs that support third-party services at publishing metadata about interlinked and packaged research products into the OpenAIRE Research Graph, in respect of the OpenAIRE interoperability guidelines (https://guidelines.openaire.eu). Research products generated by researchers using services of research infrastructures are today manually published by researchers in a repository external to their research infrastructure. This phase is often considered an extra burden, because researchers have to fill in metadata forms with information that is already available in the scope of the services they used. By using the OpenAIRE publishing APIs, services of research infrastructures can implement an on-demand publishing workflow for any type of research products to support their researchers at improving the FAIRness of their research products and relief them from the tedious step of finding a suitable repository and manually depositing the products in it.Source: ISTI Technical reports, 2019

The OpenAIRE Research Community Dashboard: On Blending Scientific Workflows and Scientific Publishing
Baglioni M., Bardi A., Kokogiannaki A., Manghi P., Iatropoulou K., Principe P., Vieira A., Nielsen L. H., Dimitropoulos H., Foufoulas I., Manola N., Atzori C., La Bruzzo S., Lazzeri E., Artini M., De Bonis M., Dell'Amico A.
Despite the hype, the effective implementation of Open Science is hindered by several cultural and technical barriers. Researchers embraced digital science, use "digital laboratories" (e.g. research infrastructures, thematic services) to conduct their research and publish research data, but practices and tools are still far from achieving the expectations of transparency and reproducibility of Open Science. The places where science is performed and the places where science is published are still regarded as different realms. Publishing is still a post-experimental, tedious, manual process, too often limited to articles, in some contexts semantically linked to datasets, rarely to software, generally disregarding digital representations of experiments. In this work we present the OpenAIRE Research Community Dashboard (RCD), designed to overcome some of these barriers for a given research community, minimizing the technical efforts and without renouncing any of the community services or practices. The RCD flanks digital laboratories of research communities with scholarly communication tools for discovering and publishing interlinked scientific products such as literature, datasets, and software. The benefits of the RCD are show-cased by means of two real-case scenarios: the European Marine Science community and the European Plate Observing System (EPOS) research infrastructure.Source: 23rd International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries, TPDL, pp. 56–69, Oslo, Norway, September 9-12, 2019

DESIRA - Deliverable 5.1 - Virtual Research Environment: specification report
Assante M, Cirillo R., Dell'Amico A., Frosini L., Pagano P.
The DESIRA Virtual Research Environment specification consists of a hardware layer and a service layer. The former is made available by the D4Science Infrastructure 1 [1, 2] and it is organized as a dynamic pool of virtual machines, supporting computation and storage. The operations and management of those resources is performed via a set of enabling technologies selected to ensure availability and reliability of the infrastructure while e guaranteeing reduction of costs of ownership and a set of supporting technologies selected to ensure secure monitoring, alerting and provisioning. The service layer, illustrated in Figure 1, consists of three service frameworks, which can be summarized as a follows: o Enabling Framework: the enabling framework, framework , based on the gCube System [3], includes services required to support the operation of all services and the VREs supported by such services. As such it includes: a resource registry service, to which all e-infrastructure infrastructure resources (data sources, services, computational nodes, etc.) can be dynamically (de)registered and discovered by user and other services; Authentication and Authorization services, as well as Accounting Services, capable of both granting ing and tracking access and usage actions from users; and a VRE manager, capable of deploying in the collaborative framework VREs inclusive of a selected number of "applications", generally intended as sets of interacting services; o Storage Framework: the storage framework includes services for efficient, advanced, and on on-demand management of digital data, encoded as: files in a distributed file system, collection of metadata records, and time series in spatial databases; such services are used by all other services in the architecture, exception made for the enabling framework; o Collaborative framework : the collaborative framework includes all services deployed for the scientists and for each of them provides social networking services, user management services, shared workspace services. In addition, addition it comprises the part on the Web UI access to the Virtual Research Environment.Source: Project report, DESIRA, Deliverable D5.1, pp.1–19, 2019

BlueBRIDGE - BlueBRIDGE VREs operation activity: final report
Assante M., Candela L., Cirillo R., Dell'Amico A., Pagano P.
Virtual Research Environments and Virtual Laboratories are among the key products the BlueBRIDGE project is called to develop and to deliver to serve its target communities and application scenarios. The deployment and operation of a Virtual Research Environment is a task that involves the reuse of existing technologies as well as the development of new technologies aiming at offering new facilities. The development of the technology, both the generic as well as that which is oriented to serve the specific needs of a given community/target scenario, is captured by other deliverables. This report describes the activities performed to provide the BlueBRIDGE community with the set of Virtual Research Environments (VREs) and Virtual Laboratories (VLabs) hosted by the BlueBRIDGE portal during the entire duration of the project. A total of 66 VREs / VLabs have been deployed and operated, overall serving more than 3000 users across 32 countries and 124 different organizations. Such VREs / VLabs include "private" ones (66% circa), i.e. environments whose membership is by invitation only, "restricted" ones (15% circa), i.e. environments that users can request to join yet the requests have to be explicitly approved by the managers, and "open" ones (18% circa), i.e. environments that any user can request to join and no approval is needed. The 45% circa of the served users is exploiting "open" environments, the 34% circa is exploiting "private" environments, and the 19% circa is exploiting "restricted" environments. During the project, more than 980 requests for support, incident or bug have been resolved (441 requests for support and 546 requests for incidents and bugs).Source: Project report, BlueBRIDGE, Deliverable D4.5, 2018

PARTHENOS - D6.3 Report on the implementation of the Joint Resource Registry (interim)
Frosini L., Assante M., Dell'Amico A., Lelii L., Candela L., Pagano P.
The D6.3 Report on the implementation of the Joint Resource Registry documents the interim implementation of the Joint Resource Registry (JRR). It complements the D5.2 Report on the design of the Joint Resource Registry deliverable by providing details on how to interact with and exploit the functionalities it provides. The JRR hosts the PARTHENOS entities represented according to the PARTHENOS Entities Model defined in WP5. As such, it represents an information system for the PARTHENOS community and the PARTHENOS universe of tools and services designed for and released in the PARTHENOS infrastructure. This deliverable presents, in Section 2, the principles and guidelines that govern the implementation of the JRR which has been designed to support the persistence of the PARTHENOS Entities. The JRR is implemented as a tailored information system capable of satisfying the evolution of the model itself, the main features of which are described in section 3 since the facet based resource model is extensively referred to throughout this report. Entities, Resources, Facets and Relations are described in detail. Section 4 describes the set of technical components comprising the JRR and APIs, covering the architecture which includes the Resource Registry Service, Context Client, Schema Client, Publisher and Client. Section 5 provides information regarding how to interact with the Resource Registry Service by exploiting the Context and Schema Port Types. The REST APIs are also presented for each functionality. Section 6 covers the backend database, OrientDB, a Multi-Model Open Source NoSQL DBMS that brings together the power of graphs and the flexibility of documents into one scalable high-performance operational database. The final section provides information on the Studio GUI used by the Content Administrator for searching between the created types and inspection of their schema.Source: Project report, PARTHENOS, Deliverable D6.3, pp.1–53, 2017

OpenAIRE: The OpenScience European Infrastructure
Artini M., Atzori C., Baglioni M., Bardi A., Biagioni S., De Bonis M., Dell'Amico A., La Bruzzo S., Manghi P.
OpenAIRE , the point of reference for Open Access in Europe, is now addressing the problem of enabling the Open Science paradigm. To this aim it will provide services to: (i) overcome the limits of today's scientific communication landscape, by allowing research communities and the relative e-infrastructures to fully publish, interlink, package and reuse their research artefacts (e.g. literature, data, and software) and their funding grants within the European and global ecosystem as supported/promoted by OpenAIRE, (ii) enable end-users (e.g. researchers, funder officers) to search and consult a rich and up-to-date knowledge graph of research results and (iii) enable scientific and educational information repositories and publishers to subscribe and be notified of changes in the OpenAIRE knowledge graph. These combined actions will bring long-term and immediate benefits to research communities, research organisations, repository managers, and funders by affecting the way research results are disseminated and reused. On the one hand, publishing the interlinked and packaged research literature, data and software via OpenAIRE drives research communities to an Open Science transition in a consistent and interoperable fashion. On the other hand, the resulting infrastructure concretely enables the construction of Open Science oriented services, supporting practices such as machine-assisted research reproducibility and evaluation.Source: Nineteenth International Conference on Grey Literature - Public Awareness and Access to Grey Literature, pp. 13–13, Roma, CNR, 23-24 October 2017

OpenAIRE APIs for data access to third party services
Artini M., Atzori C., Dell'Amico A., Labruzzo S.
The OpenAIRE infrastructure services populate and provide access to a graph of objects relative to publications, datasets, people, organizations, projects, and funders aggregated from a variety of data sources. Not only, objects in the graph are harmonized to achieve semantic homogeneity, de-duplicated and merged, and enriched by inference with missing properties and/or relationships. The aim of this technical report is to describe to third-party service managers (developers in the need of accessing data) how the OpenAIRE information space can be accessed and according to which combination of protocol and format. The document is organized according to a data centric view, where managers should first identify the typology of data they would like to access, and then verify which protocols and formats are available.Source: ISTI Technical reports, 2014
