The certification procedure has successfully been completed and I'm very happy to announce that the Sci-GaIA Open Access Repository is now an official data provider of OpenDOAR, the authoritative directory of academic open access repositories. The Sci-GaIA OAR record can be inspected at:
This is an important milestone for the OAR, whose achievement has been possible only thanks to the strong commitment of the Sci-GaIA project towards the adoption of Open Science standards.
It is also worth underlying here that all clones of the OAR that will be deployed in Africa are also potential data providers of OpenDOAR. Instructions to download, install and configure a clone of the OAR can be found here.
