Description

The next CERN Workshop on Innovations in Scholarly Communication (OAI7), will be held at the University of Geneva on 22-24 June 2011.


OAI7 participants

The workshop will follow the successful format of previous workshops mixing practical tutorials, presentations from cutting-edge projects and research, discussion groups, posters, and an intense social programme to maximise interaction and communication. It will be possible to register for a part or all of the programme.

The workshop is aimed at those involved in the development of Open Access (OA) repositories and who can influence the direction of developments either within their institution, their country or at an international level - that includes technical developers of OA bibliographic databases and connected services, research information policy developers at university or library level, funding bodies concerned with access to the results of their research, OA publishers,and influential researchers keen to lead OA developments in their own field.

Previous workshops have built a strong community spirit and the event is a unique opportunity to exchange ideas and contact details with the wide range of people connected to the OA movement. The OAI series of workshops is one of the biggest international meetings in this field and takes place roughly every two years.

      Tutorial 1. MarcXimiL : near duplicates detection (and similarity analysis) 5183

      5183

      University of Geneva

      MarcXimiL is an open source tool which works on MARCXML records and calculates similarity indices between these records. After a short theoretical introduction, the tutorial will focus on how to install, parametrize and use the tool. This tool can be implemented in order to : * prevent creation of duplicates (similar records are shown during the validation process) * identify duplicates into batch files before ingest * find duplicates inside a collection * suggest to users similar records to the one found after a request * match related documents eg. preprints and articles * and so on. http://marcximil.sourceforge.net/

      University of Geneva

      * Memento: The Memento framework introduces the time component that has been missing from the Web. Memento allows to seamlessly HTTP-navigate from the URI of a resource to archived versions of that resource by adding a timestamp to HTTP GET requests. The result is an integration of the current and the past (archived) Web. * Open Annotation: The Open Annotation Collaboration defines a Web-centric interoperable annotation framework aimed at sharing annotations across the boundaries of annotation clients, content collections, and Web resources in general.

        Publishing transcriptions as annotations on source images
        T-PEN is a transcription tool that allows users to easily transcribe from digitized images of unpublished manuscripts. These images are made available from a growing number of large document repositories. T-PEN uses line segmentation to present the transcriber with one line at a time to transcribe, and preserves the association between the line and the portion of the image it transcribes. One of the ways users can output their transcriptions is as a set of OAC annotations on the original source images. My talk will discuss the three ways in which OAC publication can enhance the user experience at the document repository. First, having a full or partial transcription can greatly enhance the searchability of a repository. Most repositories currently only search metadata and document catalogs, even when a transcription is available in some digital form. Second, the transcription can be displayed in the repository’s image viewing environment in a number of ways that readers may find useful. The line by line alignment allows the UI to reveal only a single line at a time, or a fully visible and aligned transcript. Finally, this means of publication connects the transcribed text to the original images, and thus the original document, in a way that is permanent but also open, inviting use of the information in new and unexpected ways. Additionally, I will discuss a number of use cases in which the transcriber is using the published transcription annotations to explore complex relationships within their transcribed text.

        Aggregation Services
        A number of developments in the UK are focussed on the use of 'aggregation' services as an approach to providing services to support resource discovery. This talk will describe some of the issues raised by this approach, and will attempt to describe patterns and 'anti-patterns' in the design of such services. Some of these issues will be explored in a later workshop at the conference. For the interested, some of these aspects are described in these three (loosely)related blog-posts: Institutions and the Web done better: http://blog.paulwalk.net/2010/09/21/institutions-and-the-web-done-better/ Aggregation and the Resource Discovery Taskforce vision: http://www.ukoln.ac.uk/jisc-ie/blog/2010/08/19/aggregation-and-the-resource-discovery-%20taskforce-vision/ An infrastructure service anti-pattern: http://blog.paulwalk.net/2009/12/07/an-infrastructure-service-anti-pattern/

        The Open Access conversation – more than just advocating for a mandate
        Open access is recognized as a sound concept for scholarly communication but not yet rooted in the hearts and minds of most researchers. Many evangelists who try to sell the idea at their universities have been disappointed by the lack of commitment in spite of enthusiasm while newcomers dread the possibility of failure. This need not be the case. Worldwide there are examples of open access success which can be followed. Furthermore the impact of open access on scholarly communication and related issues provides us the opportunity to introduce it as part of a much needed campus-wide discourse on scholarly communication. Ownership, copyright, cost, new developments, OA publishing, e-research, data curation, research funding and institutional repositories can all be linked to open access. In this context it makes more sense, can play a bigger role and eventually become a feature of local scholarship practice. The talk will introduce the role players and discuss strategies to create value propositions that will speak to their needs.

        Open Access Publishing: what publishers offer, what scientists want. Final results from the SOAP projects
        The SOAP (Study of Open Access Publishing) project investigated the supply of and demand for Open Access (OA) journals, as well as the experiences of scholars with this new publication paradigm. On the supply side, SOAP compiled data on existing OA journals, finding they publish around 8% of the yearly total of scholarly articles, in many case with extremely high-quality, and a somewhat confused licensing landscape. On the demand side, SOAP run a large-scale survey of researchers with forty thousands answers across disciplines and around the world. The results show an overwhelming support for the idea of OA, while highlighting funding and (perceived) lack of quality as the main barriers to publishing in OA journals. The talk will present highlights of the project, meant to support libraries, publishers, funding agencies and academics to further analyse risks and opportunities, drivers and barriers, in the transition to OA publishing.

        Observing the Impact of Green Open Access: The PEER Project
        PEER (Publishing and the Ecology of European Research), supported by the EC eContent+ programme, investigates the effects of the large-scale, systematic depositing of authors’ final peer-reviewed manuscripts on reader access, author visibility, and journal viability, as well as on the broader ecology of European research. The project is a collaboration of publishers, repositories and researchers and will last from 2008 to May 2012. In the first part of the talk the speakers () will explain the technical challenges which were overcome by the project and the participating publishing houses in setting up the PEER observatory. The second part of the talk is focused on presenting the lessons learnt from setting up the complex project infrastructure (PEER observatory) and the preliminary findings of the three PEER research projects. Those are addressing behavioral, usage and economic research.

        Re-engineering the functions of journals
        The use of online media is allowing the processes of scholarly communication to be reinvented and re-engineered. Open access to research information is a key first step because it removes all barriers to the access and reuse of the information, thereby maximizing its impact. At PLoS, the initial focus has therefore been to establish a successful and sustainable open-access publishing operation. Having achieved this goal, PLoS is now exploring new ways to enhance scholarly communication through online publications that publish new findings more rapidly, and new products that facilitate the evaluation and organization of content after publication.

        The rise of citizen cyberscience and its impact on professional research
        In this talk, I will argue that the rapid growth in the last decade of direct public participation in science via the Web – what I call citizen cyberscience – has important implications for the open science agenda. Leading researchers now routinely use citizen cyberscience to tackle large-scale scientific computing and data analysis challenges, in areas as diverse as climate science, epidemiology and molecular biology. In aggregate, millions of volunteers are contributing to such projects by donating spare time on their computers, participating directly in data analysis via the Web, or even collecting data from the field using smart phones. In exchange for their effort, volunteers typically want more openness and better communication about what the scientists are doing. Some even want to have an influence on the direction of the research. This raises new issues for how open and participative the scientific process can and should be.

        Technical, Cultural, and Legal Infrastructure to Support Effective Open Scientific Communication
        The technical challenges in sharing data and other artifacts of scientific research beyond the traditional paper remain formidable. We have clues as to how to proceed and big positive steps are being taken. These will require significant investment in trustworthy, workable, and flexible infrastructure. However beyond the technical issues there is also a great need for cultural infrastructure that will support and value these contributions and their effective communication. Legal tools and systems are also required to ensure that these outputs are freely useable and re-usable. Thinking of these different components as part of the scientific research infrastructure will be crucial in building a viable platform for modern research communication and exploitation.

        Linked Data - Towards a Web of Data
        The changing landscape of librarianship increases the need for visibility and interoperability on the Web. Shared catalogues are going online on the Web, digitized items collections are being brought together, which requires for re-inventing librarianship. Moreover this activity is no longer isolated in the library environment. Actors from a broader set of domains (libraries, archives, museums, publishing) share common issues and standards. Their capacity to jointly build interoperable solutions is the key to the development of cultural and scientific content across the Web. A re-orientation in the library perspective on information interoperability is needed, building on existing Web architecture and standards, in order to bring this content to the Web. A lot of structured data is already available within library systems and could be published as Linked Data. Cultural heritage institutions could be a major provider of authoritative datasets for the Web of Data.

        After the EU High Level Expert Group - Visions and Reality about Accessing Research Data
        The Report “Riding the Wave” created by the high level expert group pointed out what we increasingly often felt since years: we need to take urgent measures with respect to our scientific data, if we do not want to risk the disaster of not being able to access it anymore. However, the report also emphasizes the opportunities of the information hidden in the increasing amount of data. Obviously we need to increase the awareness of all stakeholders such as researchers, data scientists, research organizations and even the public about the huge relevance of our data to extract knowledge that we will need in the coming decades and beyond. A concerted action is required that will amount in a Collaborative Data Infrastructure (CDI) existing of three layers: the researchers as data generators and users, research infrastructures offering community specific data services and a data-oriented e-Infrastructure offering common data services. Since the creator-consumer relations get more anonymous, we need to new ways to establish trust relationships, but yet we do not understand all steps to be taken. Since knowledge about the stored data objects is distributed vertically the responsibility for data curation is shared - yet we do not have proper mechanisms in place to synchronize decisions. The report makes a number of suggestions to come to a vision 2030 for data management and access. We will relate these visions with the current reality of data management and access and will use the linguistic domain as an example. We will describe the data architecture being worked out and also indicate some of the limitations we are faced with when establishing a data infrastructure.
