OPERAS is the project of a distributed Research Infrastructure (RI) for open scholarly communication. The main goal is to introduce the principle of Open Science and ensure effective dissemination and global access to research results in the Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH). These disciplines need their own models for sustainable Open Access and the OPERAS Infrastructure will coordinate players to establish them. Robust services will directly enhance research outputs while new approaches to impact and measurement of academic merit will develop the way research is carried out, communicated and evaluated. Significant improvement in these aspects of scholarly communication – fostered by the OPERAS Infrastructure – will serve as a catalyst for the transition to Open Science and unfolding the European research area in the fields of SSH.
