DINI Certificate for Open Access Repositories and Publication Services 2019
Publishing is an important pillar for the advancement of scientific knowledge and of science as a whole. Among its characteristics are a) the organization of effective communication between researchers (between authors and all potential recipients, i.e. securing an adequate dissemination), b) a high degree of trustworthiness (e.g. with regard to priority, copyrights, authenticity, and quality of content) that is communicated to the users of publications (i.e. researchers), and c) sustainability and verifiability (persistent citations, long-term availability, traceability of the steps on the way to publication). The present catalog of criteria translates these general expectations of scientific publishing into concrete minimum requirements of Open Access publication services. As platforms for the publication and presentation of scientific and scholarly works these represent important hubs in the scientific communication process. As Open Access services they facilitate the dissemination and democratization of knowledge.
