What is a verified community?

A verified community is a new feature being tested in a pilot. All information on the page is subject to modification.

A verified community is a community that through curation, ensures the content upholds high quality standards.


A verified community can only be requested by:
  • Research organisations (e.g. universities, research labs and research-performing non-profits)
  • Research funders
The research organisation must be reputable and have policies in place for research integrity and ethics. Currently verified communities are only available as part of the EU Open Research Repository Pilot.


Curation must be performed by skilled curators according to the domain of the community.
