  "abstract": "<p>The OPERAS Working Group for Common Standards aims at exploring the workflows, mediums and<br>\ntechnical standards that have recently emerged as a result of the changes brought about by the<br>\ntransition to Open Science. It places focus on the importance of common standards, and traces the<br>\nimprovements required to ensure content quality and interconnectivity for scholarly output in the SSH<br>\nand beyond.</p>\n\n<p>The White Paper on Common Standards comprises desk research and identifies key operational<br>\nand technical aspects to be addressed by digital research infrastructures and service providers. It<br>\nparticularly sketches the landscape of Open Science in Europe, focusing on the policy framework and<br>\nthe institutional initiatives at EU level; it also describes current and emerging research practices and<br>\nhighlights the needs of the stakeholders and communities engaged in scholarly communication.</p>\n\n<p>Reference is specifically made to technical and operational standards for publishing infrastructures,<br>\nand their importance in providing a digital scholarly communication framework that fosters content<br>\nreuse and collaboration among researchers, while enabling the implementation of innovative research<br>\nmethods. To this end, the white paper identifies needs yet to be met, introduces 4 complementary<br>\nareas (content quality and impact assessment, interoperability, availability and processability)<br>\nfor the introduction of common standards, and provides basic recommendations for their future<br>\nimplementation.</p>\n\n<p>The white paper also examines where OPERAS members stand and suggests a roadmap for the<br>\ncommunity-wide adoption of standards.. As effective implementation of common standards is highly<br>\ndepended upon stakeholders&rsquo; increased awareness and commitment towards more effective ways of<br>\nconducting, presenting and communicating research, the white paper underlines the instrumental role<br>\nof the OPERAS network in specifying new standards and updating existing ones.</p>",
