Outline
In this seminar, we will discuss the issues with and prospects of “Researcher Information Services (we define this term as information infrastructures that provide information on researchers and research achievements.).”

Open Science enables various actors to participate in science activities. One of the important things for the development of Open Science is that information on researchers and research achievements is efficiently collected and distributed to all kinds of people who may contribute to science. Researcher Information Services can play this role by itself, or in cooperation with other services, and can be an information infrastructure that supports Open Science.

In addition, executives of universities and research institutes can find that enriching Researcher Information Services is becoming more and more important from an administration/management perspective, as it allows the capture of the activities of researchers more accurately.

This seminar will focus on the services organized by universities and research institutes, especially researcher directory services and institutional repositories. In addition, considering the researchmap maintained at the national level and the researcher information services provided by companies and non-profit organizations, we will share the current state of Researcher Information Services and discuss “Open Science in the Reiwa era.”

Abstract
Development, Deployment and Demand for Institutional Research Information System
(Takaaki Aoki)

The trend of digitalization and networking is no exception in research information, and the research information system, which facilitates the collection, organization, and provision of the current status of staff and organizations, is recognized as an essential infrastructure for academic institutions. The trend is initiated by various factors, such as the development of the global network for publication materials and intellectual properties as an external environment, and the evaluation of the performance and potential of institutions based on data as an internal motive. We will report the case of construction and utilization of the research information system at Kyoto University, which aims as the hub to collect research information both inside and outside. Additionally, we will discuss the functions, policies, and outcomes required for the future institutional research information system.

Researchers Directory Service linked with Other Researcher Information Services in YNU
(Nobuhiro Yabuki)

In this presentation, Yokohama National University Education and Research Activity Database (Researcher Directory) will be introduced as an example of linking a researcher database with external researcher information services. It was required that the number of records in the database and the accuracy of each record became increased to improving the university's public relations and research administration. At the same time, reducing the burden to input data by researchers had also been an issue. In order to solve the problem, the database got linked with some external information services to support efficient data entry. Now the database is being enhanced to link with ORCID( international persistent researcher ID). Through introducing the case, I would like to discuss a prospect for building a researcher database as a foundation for open science.

Faculty Evaluation Linked to Repository Deposit - Effect of OA Percentage Adoption
(Fujiko Uehara)

Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST) started operating an institutional repository (OISTIR) in 2017 under an Open Access policy. The Library has created procedures to promote Open Access in collaboration with researchers, and it has achieved certain result to deposit academic articles in OISTIR. The effective way of this is to require all researchers to submit a Deposit License which is one-off and comprehensive license to make them approve depositing all research works in OISTIR. After Open Access Percentage was adopted as a reference indicator for faculty evaluation in 2019, OIST succeeded in creating an organizational support system for depositing works in OISTIR. OIST's Open Access initiatives will be introduced.

Effective Dissemination of JAEA R&D Results: Its Workflow and Advanced Use
(Naomi Ebisawa)

Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) has been making efforts to disseminate our R&D results for the public. For the management and disseminating our R&D results, JAEA has been developed information management system and information dissemination system. In this presentation, I will give an overview of the history and current status of our systems, and also explains our workflows including the internal subsidy system for APCs. In addition, I will introduce new attempts such as visualizing the co-authorship networks using our R&D results information, and the construction of the researcher' s information lists which currently being planned.
