Path2Integrity Project Outcomes
Edited by Editor-in-chief: Prof. Julia Prieß-Buchheit; Editors: Dr. Oliver Claas, Iliyana Demirova, Dr. Agnieszka Dwojak-Matras, Lisa Häberlein, Belén López, Katharina Miller, Prof. Dr. Christiane Stock

The Path2Integrity project, financed by the EU Horizon 2020, advocates for emphasising the virtues of Research Integrity and strengthening the relationship between science and society in the rapidly changing research landscape. By designing and implementing rotatory role-playing and role-models, the project will maximise the quality and societal impact of research and foster Research Integrity by educating the next generation. Within the three-year research and innovation programme, dialogical trainings will pave the way towards achieving enhanced and successful educational practices and learning methods targeted at students and young researchers, as well as everyone directly or indirectly involved in research, including educators and senior researchers.

SYNTHESYS+ Project Outcomes
Edited by Laurence Livermore, Vince Smith, Katherine Dixey

European natural history collections play a critical role in mapping a sustainable future for ourselves and the natural systems on which we depend. Since 2004 the EC funded SYNTHESYS programme has been supporting this community, underpinning new ways to access and exploit natural science collections, harmonising collections policy and funding collections-based research for more than 4000 scientists.

SYNTHESYS+ is the fourth iteration of this programme, running from February 2019 to January 2023.  This growing collection of articles highlights major outputs from SYNTHESYS+ over the four year of activity, covering topics such as our new digitisation on-demand service, the construction of a European Loans and Visits System (ELViS) and a new data processing platform (the Specimen Data Refinery), applying artificial intelligence to speed up the digital mobilisation of natural history collections.

Metadata 2020 Project Outputs
This collection hosts outputs from Metadata 2020, a collaboration that advocates richer, connected, and reusable, open metadata for all research outputs, which will advance scholarly pursuits for the benefit of society. We aim to create awareness and resources for all who have a stake in creating and using scholarly metadata. We will demonstrate why richer metadata should be the scholarly community’s top priority, how we can all evaluate ourselves and improve, and what can be achieved when we work harder, and work together.

COST Action SAGA
Edited by Carmen Cuenca-García

This collection hosts outcomes from the ‘Soil Science & Archaeo-Geophysics Alliance’ (SAGA), an international research network funded by the European Cooperation in Science & Technology (COST) for four years (from 26th October 2018 until 25th October 2022) as COST Action SAGA (CA17131).  SAGA is developing, promoting and facilitating scientific activities bringing together geophysics and soil science with the overall goal of maximising interpretation of geophysical data for archaeological investigations. The collection includes SAGA’s proposal and annual reports on scientific activities (workshops, training schools, short-term scientific missions and Conference Grants) carried out by its members and external participants.

Exploring the opportunities and challenges of implementing open research strategies within development institutions: A project of the International Development Research Center
Edited by Cameron Neylon, Leslie Chan

This research project was an Open Data pilot based on case studies with seven IDRC grantees who developed and implemented open data management and sharing plans. The case studies examined the scale of legal, ethical and technical challenges that limited the sharing of data from IDRC projects including issues of:

* Privacy, personally identifiable information and protection of human subject
* Protection of intellectual property generated from projects or potential for financial risks for projects or institutions
* Challenges in the local legal environment, including ownership of data
* Ethical issues in releasing or sharing of indigenous and community knowledge, and the relationship between project participants and investigators particularly in the context of historical expropriation of resources
* Local and global issues of capacity and expertise in the management and sharing of data

The project ran over (15) months, commencing December 2015 and ending in February 2017. The project involved a literature review and series of interviews on funder data sharing policies, the seven case studies including data management plans and implementation, and a final summary report. The results of the project aim to refine guidelines for the implementation of development research funders’ open research data policies and data policies more generally.
