ORCID Identifiers in Reactome


Published on

ORCID identifiers in repositories

The ORCID identifier has been incorporated into numerous repository platforms. This session will offer a discussion of integration points, policy issues, data flow between systems, researcher participation, discovered opportunities, and demonstrations by universities, research organizations, and vendors.

Moderator: Salvatore Mele, Head of Open Access at CERN

ORCID Identifiers in Reactome

  1. 1. Robin Haw! ORCID! 21st May 2014 " " " " " " " www.reactome.org " ! ! ! ORCID identifiers in Reactome! Ministry of Research ! and Innovation!
  2. 2. What is Reactome?" •  Open source and open access pathway knowledgebase! –  1500 human pathways encompassing metabolism, signaling, and other biological processes.! –  Biological pathways that describe normal and disease-related events in the human cell.! –  Every pathway is traceable to primary literature.! •  Pathway databases like Reactome satisfy common “use cases” in biological and clinical research:! –  Intuitive display of biological information.! –  Visualize multiple experimental data types on a pathway.! –  Computational methods available to automate analysis.! •  Collaboration between CSHL, OICR, NYUMC, EBI (not a single institution!)!
  3. 3. Reactome Homepage! www.reactome.org"
  4. 4. Pathway Browser ! •  Google-map style pathway diagrams ! Details panel" Pathway diagram" Pathway hierarchy"
  5. 5. Data Curation Process" Curator' (10'Reactome'staff)' Expert' Reviewer' •  Pathway modules are expert authored, manually curated and peer- reviewed.! –  Recruit bench scientists to write pathway modules.! –  Curators work with authors to ensure consistency and completeness.! –  Module checked by peer review and software before publications.! –  Public Release of Curated data every 3 months.! –  Regular Pathway updates.!
  6. 6. Reactome-ORCID Project Goals" •  Stage I: Expand the Reactome data model and database to support ORCID iDs. ! !! •  Stage II: Integrate ORCID iD into Reactome software tools and website.! •  Stage III: Import and deploy ORCID iD data within Reactome.! •  Stage IV: Create documentation, training and outreach.!
  7. 7. Stage I: Expand the Reactome data model and database to support ORCID iDs ! "•  Updated “Person” class in Reactome database to include cross-reference to ORCID!
  8. 8. All Reactome Curators have ORCID iDs"
  9. 9. Stage II: Integrate ORCID iD into Reactome software tools and website.! "
  10. 10. ORCID - Author Attribution"
  11. 11. ORCID - Reviewer Attribution"
  12. 12. Reactome-ORCID Project Status" •  Stage I: Expand the Reactome data model and database to support ORCID iDs. ! –  Completed, to deploy June 2014.! •  Stage II: Integrate ORCID iD into Reactome software tools and website.! –  Completed, to deploy June 2014.! •  Stage III: Import and deploy ORCID iD data within Reactome.! –  In Progress.! –  Queried the ORCID registry with the Public API to identify Reactome contributors with ORCID iDs.! –  Contacting all previous Reactome contributors.! –  Author and Review letters now include ORCID information.! –  Encouraging those with ORCIDs to add Reactome pathways to profile information.! •  Stage IV: Create documentation, training and outreach.! –  To start shortly.!
  13. 13. Challenges – Stage II/III" •  We can’t create ORCID iDs on behalf of individuals.! –  Reactome is not an institution!! •  Researchers are reluctant to register.! –  ~160 authors and ~300 reviewers.! –  14 contributors with ORCID iDs.! ! •  How to allow Reactome authors and reviewers to append their ORCID Record with metadata associated with their Reactome records? ! –  Reactome is not using the Member API!! –  Manual updating by contributor! –  Creating a ‘BibLaTeX’ citation export?!
  14. 14. myORCID page"
  15. 15. Summary " •  Our open access and open source policies make this an attractive open data linkage between the scientist and pathway knowledge via the ORCID iD. ! •  ORCID iDs as a key mechanism for credit attribution for Reactome.! •  A valuable route to increase visibility of the contributions of our external domain experts (authors and reviewers) and curators. ! •  We are keen to resolve the systemic naming ambiguity by implementing the ORCID.! •  A great potential for other bioinformatics resources to adopt ORCID since they are also reliant on expert contributions and/ or curators.!
