    Identifiers for Researchers and Data: Increasing Attribution and Discovery– John Kaye Identifiers for Researchers and Data: Increasing Attribution and Discovery– John Kaye Presentation Transcript

    • ODIN – ORCID and DataCite Interoperability Network Association of Librarians and Information Professionals in the Social Sciences July 2013 John Kaye – British Library Funded by The European Union Seventh Framework Programme www.odin-project.eu
    • Summary • Identifiers • ODIN Overview • Humanities and Social Sciences • High Energy Physics • Next Steps
    • Identifers • Uniquely identify Research Objects • Digital Object Identifiers • DataCite (DOI’s) • CrossRef DOI’s
    • Identifers • Uniquely identify Research Objects • Archival Research Key’s (ARK’s) • International Standard Book Numbers (ISBN’s) • Uniform Resource Locators (URL’s) • Institutional and other ID’s
    • People Identifers • Uniquely identify people • Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) • International Standard Name Identifier (ISNI) • Country Based ID’s
    • ORCID • Infrastructure already exists for researchers to build up a unique open portfolio of research objects
    • ORCID • Register an ORCID ID www.orcid.org and link published papers using ORCID’s tools
    • Using Identifiers • View the impact of your work using traditional citation metrics and social citations
    • Using Identifiers Actions on data and their reliance on metadata, data citation, and data management (adapted from Altman, 2012).
    • ODIN Partners
    • ODIN Objectives • We want to support development and stimulate adoption of interoperable identifiers for: • Researchers • Inputs (cited work, data) • Outputs (publications and data) • We aim to facilitate information flow within and between research communities, leading to greater re-use of data and exploitation of the knowledge created.
    • ODIN Challenges Accessibility: seamlessly access datasets used in a journal article, a grant report, or another scholarly artefact Discovery: identify scholarly works or datasets related to each other either through networks of references and citation or through shared contributors Interoperability: connect datasets and contributors across independent platforms using different, but interoperable identifier schemes. Sustainability: ongoing viability of the systems that provide and maintain persistent identifiers.
    • ODIN Work Streams • Proofs of Concept in Humanities and Social Science and High Energy Physics • Interoperability • Strategy • Internationalisation
    • ODIN Developments • Developed from work carried out in Interoperability Work Stream • Based on CrossRef Import Tool • Searches DataCite Metadata store and allows users to import datasets into their ORCID Profile • http://datacite.labs.orcid-eu.org/ - Feedback welcome!
    • Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) Image from National Survey for Health and Development
    • HSS: Birth Cohort Studies • Why Birth Cohort Studies? • Investment • Established/Long history • Tradition of data curation • Multiple Data Providers • High Re-use • Derived Data • Multi-disciplinary • BL Involvement in CLOSER (Cohort and Longitudinal Studies Enhancement Resource)
    • HSS: Objectives • 1st Year: Preliminary conceptual models for connecting data creators, curators, contributors and data sets will be described • 2nd Year: Concrete workflows will be designed and developed • The development of such workflows will be done in strong collaboration with the relevant stakeholders in the community
    • HSS: Approach • Technical work – http://odin-discover.eu/ • Conversations and Interviews: • Cohort Study Teams • UK Data Service • International Data Providers • Visit from Australian Data Archive
    • HSS: Approach Data Sources and Linking in http://odin-discover.eu/
    • Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) http://odin-discover.eu/
    • HSS Current Attribution
    • HSS Current Attribution
    • Workflows • Consult with Data Centres and providers to see where identifiers fit in their workflows • Assigning roles and names • Assigning identifiers to new datasets • Assigning identifiers to exsiting datasets • How to integrate identifiers into DDI • Push more metadata into DataCite • Provide feedback to datacentres • ‘Nudge’ researchers to cite data properly
    • Workflows (Data Centre Ingest)
    • Workflows (Citation)
    • HSS Next Steps • 1st Year report due in August 2013 • Year 2 HSS tasks • Work with National Survey for Health and Development to implement workflows • Encourage social science data providers to adopt people ID’s • Provide feedback tools for data providers • Look at assigning ORCID’s to other metadata – Ethos • Linking bibliographic citation data for Impact tracking and enhanced discovery • Explore commonalities with High Energy Physics
    • High Energy Physics
    • Current status (I) HEP (High-Energy Physics) field specificities: • Multiversioning: from preprint versions until final publications • Hyperauthorship: hundreds/thousands of scientists signing the same article • Data levels of abstraction (CERN, Inspire, HEPData) • Different publication spaces (arXiv, Inspire, publishers) Challenges: • Author identification, improvement of the disambiguation process done in place • Uniquely associate articles/datasets with authors/contributors • Version management during the long publication process
    • High Energy Physics (HEP) Current Inspire interface
    • High Energy Physics (HEP) Current Inspire interface  Disambiguation process among thousands of authors:  Names and affiliations  Different ways to write the same information  Clustering algorithm
    • ODIN Next Steps • Reports available in Summer 2013 • 1st Year Event and Codesprint @ CERN 15th - 17th October 2013 • http://datacite.labs.orcid-eu.org/ - Feedback welcome! • Input into and Social Science Proof of Concept, workflows etc. please contact us!
