Research centre for open scholarly metadata

Research Centre for Open Scholarly Metadata is an independent research centre within the University of Bologna which has the aim of gathering, managing, distributing and studying the complex domain of scholarly metadata.

The Research Centre provides a formal administrative centre to manage the administrative and financial affairs of OpenCitations, an independent infrastructure organisation for open scholarship dedicated to the publication of open bibliographic and citation data. The Research Centre has an International Advisory Board for OpenCitations drawn from leaders within the main bibliographic stakeholder communities of relevance to ensure that OpenCitations’ original aim of free provision of open bibliographic and citation data, services and software is maintained.
