Important information for the Hands-on tutorial

During the Hands-on tutorial participants will be guided through the following steps:

  1. Access and use a FAIR compliant digital repository.
  2. Claim research outputs/scholarly contents stored on a FAIR compliant digital repository and tagged with DataCite DOIs from the ORCID profiles of their authors.
  3. Connect research outputs to other research outputs (if time allows).

In step 1, we will be using the Somali Research and Education Research and Education Repository (SORER) operated by SomaliREN. In order to access the repository to upload their research outputs, participants are required to get federated credentials beforehand by registering here. Registration requires human intervention by the Administrators of the IDPOPEN Identity Provider and usually takes 1-2 working days. Since the day of the event is a Monday, please register to IDPOPEN at your earliest convenience and no later than 3-4 days before the event.

Important note: each research output stored on the SORER repository is tagged with an official Digital Object Identifier (DOI) issued by DataCite hence participants are required to upload real (not fake) contents during the tutorial in the community called External Contents. A guide to upload contents on SORER is available here. Participants may want to have a look at it before the event.

In step 2, participants need to already have an ORCID profile. Those who haven't yet, may get one by registering here. Please, get your ORCID profile done at least one day before the event.
