There are currently four different types of research outcomes in the OpenAIRE Research Graph:
OpenAIRE deduplicates (merges) different records of research outcomes and keeps the metadata of all instances.
|Publication||Research outcomes intended for human reading (published articles, pre-prints, conference papers, presentations, technical reports, etc.)|
Granularity is not defined by OpenAIRE, it reflects the granularity supported by the sources from which the description of the dataset has been collected.
|Software||Source code or software package developed and/or used in a research context|
|Other Research Product||Anything that does not fall in the previous categories (e.g. workflow, methods, protocols)|
