The recent launch of the Italian Open Science portal during GenOA Week 2021 is a crucial milestone for the research community in Italy, bringing together information and reports through a special catalogue of resources.
The Portal www.open-science.it, entirely dedicated to Open Science and its many aspects, is written in Italian and designed for the Italian community in various capacities involved in Open Science, but always keeping an eye on the international level.
Conceived by EOSC-Pillar partner CNR-ISTI, the portal was then incorporated into the activities of the Competence Centre of the Italian Computing and Data Infrastructure (ICDI), which hosts the editorial staff.
The portal offers information and resources organised by different types of users: researcher, research institution, funding agency, citizen. Once the user type is selected, users can choose the contents according to different themes: Open Science, research data management, Open Science regulations, repositories, funding bodies and Open Access, Services, OS projects and initiatives.
In addition, the portal offers a catalogue of specific documents such as Open Access policies of Italian universities, reports, recommendations and guidelines of international importance related to the development of Open Science. The intention is to feed it from now on also with other types of materials, such as resources from training events.
