Monitool - new tools for water quality monitoring
Edited by Blánaid White, Marta Rodrigo Sanz, Vanessa Millán Gabet

The main driver of the MONITOOL project is to respond to the European Directive demands for the assessment of chemical status of transitional and coastal waters, allowing the use of passive sampling devices (PSDs) in a regulatory context, enhancing the implementation of the WFD.

MONITOOL PROJECT - New tools for monitoring the chemical status in transitional and coastal waters under the WFD - aims to provide a robust database of dissolved and labile metal concentrations in transitional and coastal waters for adapting existing Environmental Quality Standards (EQS; 0.45 µm filtered) suitable EQS-DGT for passive sampling devices in order to evaluate the chemical status of the waters under the WFD.

During MONITOOL project, co-deployments of DGTs and water spot sampling and subsequent DGT and water metal analysis across the Atlantic region will be addressed to determine suitable EQS-DGTs for metals.

PoshBee Project Outcomes
Edited by Mark Brown, Jane Stout, Marie-Pierre Chauzat, Marika Mand, Denis Michez, Robert Paxton, Peter Neumann, Alexandra Klein, Francesco Nazzi, Philippe Bulet, Simon Potts, Gail Turney, Alexandra Korcheva, Teodor Metodiev
This collection hosts outcomes from PoshBee, a Horizon 2020 funded European Research Consortium (grant agreement No 773921). PoshBee is a 5-year funded project (2018-2023) that aims to support healthy bee populations, sustainable beekeeping, and consequently pollination for crops and wildflowers across Europe. To do this we take a range of approaches, from the laboratory to the field, from molecules to ecosystems, and from fundamental science to risk assessment. The collection includes a range of outputs, including reports, protocols, methodologies, and research papers.

ReNature: Promoting research excellence in nature-based solutions for innovation, sustainable economic growth and human well-being in Malta
Edited by Anna Sapundzhieva, Mario Balzan

The ReNature RIO Collection will host key outputs relating to the sustainable use of biodiversity, biodiversity-ecosystem functioning, green infrastructure and ecosystem service assessments across rural-urban gradients, equitable access to the benefits derived from nature in cities and socio-environmental justice, payments for ecosystem services, and designing nature-based solutions. Reports from workshops attended by students, early career researchers and policymakers from all over the world will accumulate further empirical knowledge on the ReNature subjects. This Collection will continue to be developed further as the ReNature project continues to promote open innovation whilst effectively engaging communities in the co-development and exchange of knowledge for nature-based solutions implementation.

Observations, prevention and impact of COVID-19
Edited by Victor Padilla-Sanchez

Research Ideas and Outcomes (RIO Journal) invites submissions of research outcomes - especially early and brief results - relevant to the COVID-19 pandemic in light of the unprecedented health emergency and the scale of its worldwide impact on society, industry and economics.

By means of Open Science, we aim to contribute with real-time findings and data to the efforts of scientific teams, experts and other decision-makers across the globe, in order to minimise the damage and eventually bring the end to the current crisis, and even more importantly, prevent similar situations in the future. Published research ideas and brief results are also expected to bring up crucial discussion, thereby facilitating actions and collaborations in the fight against devastating health emergencies.

Especially encouraged are submissions focused on the long-term effects of COVID-19. Considered are publications across disciplines, including medicine, ethics, politics, economics etc. at a local, regional, national or international scale. Accepted publication types include: Research articles, Research Idea, Case Study, Clinical Case Study, Data Paper, Forum Paper, Methods, Questionnaire, R Package, Software Description, Workshop Report, Project Report, Research Poster, Research Presentation, Short Communication, Single-media Publication (e.g. infographics), Data Review.

We also encourage publication of research ‘bundles’, where conventional papers are published along with raw research outputs (e.g. data, case studies, presentations, etc.), to better contextualise the work and facilitate further contribution by other scientists.

Building the European Biodiversity Observation Network (EU BON) Project Outcomes
Edited by Florian Wetzel, Lyubomir Penev

This collection hosts outputs from the FP7-funded EU project Building the European Biodiversity Observation Network (EU BON). The project proposes an innovative approach in terms of integration of biodiversity information systems from on-ground to remote sensing data, for addressing policy and information needs in a timely and customized way.

Metadata 2020 Project Outputs
Edited by Laura Paglione, Ginny Hendricks
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.

Path2Integrity Project Outcomes
Edited by Julia Prieß-Buchheit, Oliver Claas, Iliyana Demirova, Agnieszka Dwojak-Matras, Lisa Häberlein, Belén López, Katharina Miller, 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.

ICEDIG Project Outcomes
Edited by Laurence Livermore, Anne Koivunen, Kari Lahti and Leif Schulman

Addressing today’s global environmental challenges requires access to significant quantities of data. This holds especially true for the natural sciences, where one rich data trove remains unearthed: The European scientific collections. These jointly hold more than 1.5 billion objects, representing 80% of the world’s bio- and geo-diversity. With only 10 % of these objects digitised, their information remains vastly underused, thus impeding potential applications of this critical scientific resource.

The EU-funded ICEDIG project – “Innovation and Consolidation for Large Scale Digitisation of Natural Heritage” - aims to support the implementation phase of the new Research Infrastructure DiSSCo (“Distributed System of Scientific Collections”) by designing and addressing the technical, financial, policy and governance aspects necessary to operate such a large distributed initiative for natural sciences collections across Europe. This collection of articles highlights the major outputs of the ICEDIG project over the last three years (January 2018 to March 2020).

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.
