Huma-Num

Huma-Num

Huma-Num aims at supporting research communities by providing services, assessment and tools on digital research data. To perform its missions, the TGIR Huma-Num bases its activities on a innovative form of organization that combines human (collective consultation through Huma-Num’s consortia, which are groups of researchers and engineers, funded by Huma-Num, working on common areas of interest) and technological resources (sustainable digital services) on a national and European scale.
Huma-Num provides Isidore, a search engine for HSS resources and Nakala, a data repository.
 
Several projects have associated the CCSD and Huma-Num: Isidore, MediHAL and, more recently, the POC of the European project WP6 of EOSC-Pillar.

ORCID

ORCID

HAL is referenced by ORCID as a database that researchers can use to import their works: researchers can complete their ORCID record with their HAL deposits in just one click.
The setting up of this feature in HAL is part of the membership of the CNRS to ORCID. ORCID is a non profit organization whose business model is based on free access for researchers, and on membership for organizations. This provides them with a set of tools and services based on ORCID data and APIs.
Joining a consortium is a way for organizations to benefit from preferential membership rates.
 
The creation of the “ORCID France” consortium in november 2019 is one of the actions defined in the National Plan for Open Science (July 2018): be part of a sustainable, European and international dynamic (axis 3).
Created in November 2019, the ORCID France consortium federates the membership of institutions at a national lovel, and aims to promote the adoption of the ORCID identifier by researcheers, in order to consolidate their digital identity and the visibility of their work.
It currently has 35 members; the CCSD is a member of the ORCID France consortium governance, as an observer.
