3. Project Identifier (MA)¶
3.1. DC Field¶
Mandatory when applicable
3.3. Usage Instruction¶
An authoritative list of projects is exposed by OpenAIRE through OAI-PMH, and available for all repository managers. Values include the project name and project ID. The projectID equals the Grant Agreement identifier, and is defined by the info:eu-repo namespace term grantAgreement.
The syntax is:
Funderrefers to the funding organization (e.g.,
ECfor European Commission,
WTfor Wellcome Trust)
FundingProgrammerefers to a specific programme (e.g.,
FP7for Framework Programme Seven,
H2020for Horizon 2020)
ProjectIDrefers to a unique identifier in the scope of the funder (and maybe the programme), e.g. a grant agreement number.
Jurisdictionrefers to the authority granted to a formally constituted legal body (e.g.
EUfor European Union)
ProjectNamecontains the full name of the project
ProjectAcronymcontains the project’s acronym.
For OpenAIRE compatibility, the elements in square brackets are optional. The three-part namespace is mandatory when applicable (
info:eu-repo/grantAgreement/Funder/FundingProgram/ProjectID), while the six-parts namespace is recommended.
When omitting fields in the extended version, the number of fields must be preserved by using
/. A correct example for omitting the the
ProjectName field would therefore look like this:
If any of the field values contains a forward slash (
/), it needs to be escaped using URL encoding (
%2F). For instance,
My/Project would be represented as
OpenAIRE Guidelines v1
An example utilizing all six fields:
1 2 3
<dc:relation> info:eu-repo/grantAgreement/EC/FP7/244909/EU/Making Capabilities Work/WorkAble </dc:relation>
An example for omitting the the ProjectName field (note that the number of slashes is correctly preserved):
1 2 3
<dc:relation> info:eu-repo/grantAgreement/EC/FP7/283595/EU//OpenAIREplus </dc:relation>
A correct example using the old three-part form (discouraged):
1 2 3
<dc:relation> info:eu-repo/grantAgreement/EC/FP7/244909 </dc:relation>
