Taming the Wilderness of Open Research Information

  1. 1. Taming the Wilderness of Open Research Information Student project at HS Hannover, participants: Wendinda Carine Donessonne, Felix Kommnick, Elena Liventsova, Rahima Medshid, Bengt Olschewski, Anna Petersmeier, Tatiana Walther, Jana Wolf Dr. Ina Blümel, Gabriel Birke i-Know conference September 18, 2014
  2. 2. Research Information: Paradigms • Institutional • research management as driving force: reporting tools, etc. • mostly proprietary CRIS implementations at institutional and partly national level, … (Pure, Converis, et al) • “closed world” • Community based / discovery layer • merging & linking research information from various sources • Supporting scientists to establish networks, see success of ResearchGate, academia.edu, etc. 2
  3. 3. 3 VIVO • Model for linkable research information with LOD ontologies • Open source software • Originally developed at Cornell with NSF funding, now supported by a consortium at DuraSpace • Numerous implementations, previously primarily in the English-language bio/medical area (CTSA) • Research profiles, visualisations, …
  4. 4. 4 “feed” VIVO 1. External data sources, esp. websites (harvesting) 2. Internal data sources (Web API or other type of access) 3. Individual customization to suit professional needs Challenge: • From the vast array of research inf. objects on the web to structured research information • If possible, automatically 
  5. 5. Sources Science 2.0 community • Websites with publications, projects, information about organizations, persons, ... • with structured and unstructured information  Identify websites with repetitive, similarly structured content, worth setting up a harvesting pipeline! 5
  6. 6. Setting, Task • 16 weeks project • 6th semester bachelor students of library and information science • supported by an information and a computer scientist • identify and document research information items on the websites • map to the VIVO ontology • certain steps re-defined or split up during running project according to students needs / prior knowledge 6

  13. 13. Challenges 13 • inconsistent publication data, entered as freeform text in CMS, e.g., up to 13 different versions of journal volume representation • templates don’t provide RI in machine-readable formats
  14. 14. Challenges • Variable content, stable structures • Duplicates with different structure (publications, persons, …) http://www.hiig.de/ausgewahlte-publikationen/ http://www.hiig.de/ausgewaehlte-veroffentlichungen/ 14
  15. 15. Man and machine drawing same conclusions? http://www.hiig.de/kooperationen/  Partners are marked with a logo (image)  Luckily „alt“-tags available 15 Challenges
  16. 16. Results 16 • Discovery layer with aggregated research information • Also approach for bootstrapping institutional research information systems from available web sources • no substitute, but complementary to those systems
  17. 17. 17 Some activities (beside VIVO implementation) • Community building • VIVOcamp13, first workshop for EU VIVO community, SWIB13 satellite November 2013 • VIVO Bootcamp at ELAG Conference (European Library Automation Group) in Bath, June 2014, „hands-on„ • euroCRIS LOD group participation • Policy & Standards Making: Position paper DINI AG FIS • Supervising bachelor thesis for extending VIVO ontology • DFG application: “German Academic Web”
