    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;The OPERAS Working Group for Common Standards aims at exploring the workflows, mediums and&lt;br&gt;
technical standards that have recently emerged as a result of the changes brought about by the&lt;br&gt;
transition to Open Science. It places focus on the importance of common standards, and traces the&lt;br&gt;
improvements required to ensure content quality and interconnectivity for scholarly output in the SSH&lt;br&gt;
and beyond.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The White Paper on Common Standards comprises desk research and identifies key operational&lt;br&gt;
and technical aspects to be addressed by digital research infrastructures and service providers. It&lt;br&gt;
particularly sketches the landscape of Open Science in Europe, focusing on the policy framework and&lt;br&gt;
the institutional initiatives at EU level; it also describes current and emerging research practices and&lt;br&gt;
highlights the needs of the stakeholders and communities engaged in scholarly communication.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Reference is specifically made to technical and operational standards for publishing infrastructures,&lt;br&gt;
and their importance in providing a digital scholarly communication framework that fosters content&lt;br&gt;
reuse and collaboration among researchers, while enabling the implementation of innovative research&lt;br&gt;
methods. To this end, the white paper identifies needs yet to be met, introduces 4 complementary&lt;br&gt;
areas (content quality and impact assessment, interoperability, availability and processability)&lt;br&gt;
for the introduction of common standards, and provides basic recommendations for their future&lt;br&gt;
implementation.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The white paper also examines where OPERAS members stand and suggests a roadmap for the&lt;br&gt;
community-wide adoption of standards.. As effective implementation of common standards is highly&lt;br&gt;
depended upon stakeholders&amp;rsquo; increased awareness and commitment towards more effective ways of&lt;br&gt;
conducting, presenting and communicating research, the white paper underlines the instrumental role&lt;br&gt;
of the OPERAS network in specifying new standards and updating existing ones.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
