Interoperability and Vcard, vcf by MMS

vCard is a file format standard for electronic business (or personal) cards.
vCards are often attached to e-mail messages, but can be exchanged in other ways, such as on the World Wide Web (instant messaging,...) or cellular phone (by MMS).

This file format standard allows an interoperable save process to your "contacts.

Process  with an Android:

  1. go to Messaging app, and then "long tap" the received MMS
  2. On the Message options prompt, select "Save attachment".
  3. On the save attachment prompt, select the checkbox and tap "save". The .vcf file should be saved on your phone storage Download folder.
  4. launch My Files app. Go to the phone Download folder (storage/sdcard0/Download) and tap the .vcf file.
    Note: If you didn’t see that particular file in the Download folder, you can make use of the search function in My Files.
  5. If this is your FIRST time opening a .vcf file on your Android, you should see the Complete action using prompt. Here, tap "Contacts" and then Always.
  6. On the Create contact under account window, select 
    • Google to save the contact to your Gmail contact
    • Phone to save the contact to your phone contact app.

DOI versioning and Zenodo

We are pleased to announce the launch of DOI versioning support in Zenodo - the open research repository from OpenAIRE and CERN. This new feature enables users to update the record’s files after they have been made public and researchers to easily cite either specific versions of a record or to cite, via a top-level DOI, all the versions of a record.

DOI versioning support was one of our most requested features for Zenodo, and it has been co-developed by OpenAIRE’s Zenodo team and EUDAT’s B2SHARE team as an extension module for CERN’s Invenio digital repository platform, which powers both Zenodo and B2SHARE.

This update comes hot on the heels of the recent relaunch which made Zenodo faster, improved GitHub integration, integrated support for Horizon 2020 grant information, and enabled 50 gigabyte uploads!
