In collaboration with Invest in Open Infrastructure, FAIRsFAIR partner SPARC Europe has commissioned a survey to map international, national or regional Open Access and Open Science infrastructures across Europe. 

Open Access (OA) and Open Science (OS) infrastructures are sets of services, protocols, standards and software contributing to the research lifecycle – from collaboration and experimentation through data collection and storage, data organization, data analysis and computation, authorship, submission, review and annotation, copyediting, publishing, archiving, citation, discovery and more.

The purpose of the initiative is to help SPARC Europe increase the visibility of scholarly communication resources in Europe, attract more funding, and guide funding organisations and agencies, institutions, libraries, service providers and others in conceptualising effective strategies for financing essential open infrastructure. 

The survey should take approximately 30 minutes to complete and will be open until 5 June 2020. The results will be reviewed in collaboration with OPERAS and shared during late summer/early autumn 2020.
