The goal of the this working group (WG) is to define a Research Publishing framework to simplify the adoption of that practice, by enabling the services of research infrastructures to seamlessly integrate repository deposition workflows in the context of the EOSC. 

Such an interoperability framework will consist in API and  formats that will allow for the implementation of end-to-end research workflows with an on-demand (semi) automatic step of publishing that ensures the FAIRness of research outputs obtained thanks to the RI. After the first six months of activity, the WG plans to open the protocol specification for public consultation and suggest its inclusion in the EOSC Interoperability Framework.

The WG will contribute to the areas of EOSC Exchange for the definition of the  EOSC Interoperability Framework on data publishing and open data, User Experience -Resource Sharing and Discovery, and User Experience - Resource Composability. The activities align with the mission of EOSC Future and with the foreseen collaboration activities with INFRAEOSC-07 projects and Science Projects.

For more information please refer to the WG charter.
