  • eSciDoc Days conference Berlin, October 26-27, 2011
  • Outline
    • eScience
      • Wuzzat?
    • eSciDoc
      • a software suite for eScience repositories
    • eSciDoc implementations
      • PubMan, etc.
    • eScience on iFQ‘s radar
  • Photos then and now “ I took a photo with my telephone. I uploaded the photo from my phone to Flickr and tweeted about it.”
  • Little Science - 19 th century
    • A few geniuses working alone or in small-lab groups. Driven by genius, passion, luck.
    Thomas Edison
  • Big Science – 20 th century
    • A large number of highly organized researchers. Driven by money, organizational goals.
    Richards Medical Research Laboratories, Philadelphia
  • Big Science – The finale
    • CERN - 7931 scientists and engineers representing 608 universities and research facilities and 113 nationalities.
    Where the WWW started
  • What is eScience?
    • “ Data deluge” - There is too much data.
    • Without plan for preservation, data is ephemeral.
    • Preserving data is useless without its metadata.
    • Research integrity: Data has a reuse value, and it is important to obtain full return on public investment.
  • Science now – preserving data
  • Most projects do not plan for this
  • What is eScience?
    • Getting researchers & administrators to understand that it’s not just about storage .
    • Awareness of data as an asset .
    • Public accountability: if science is for the public good, the data should be publically available .
    data = computers = nerds “ Go talk to the Frank in the server room.”
  • eScience features
    • Data + metadata + Internet = eScience
    • Groups of all sizes can work together.
      • Connect 100 Edisons, each in their own lab
    • Perform experiments online.
      • MyExperiment is a collaborative environment where scientists can safely publish their workflows and experiment plans, share them with groups and find those of others.
    • Science becomes one big mash-up .
  • eScience - 21 st century
    • Networked researchers in scale-free groups. Driven by openness?, community?
  • eSciDocDays
    • eSciDoc is the result of a collaboration between the Max Planck digital library and FIZ Karlsruhe.
    • First eSciDocDays was held in 2008. There are about 120 attendees at this conference.
    • The goal of the project is building research environments.
    • The next steps in e-Science are integration of and navigation between sites, and how to provide deeper & broader insights.
  • eSciDocDays
  • eSciDocDays
    • PubMan supports research organizations in the management, dissemination and re-use of publications and supplementary material. It can be used out-of-the-box within the eSciDoc infrastructure.
    • IMEJI An eSciDoc application to manage images together with their specific metadata.
    • AWOB awob.mpg.de
    • BW-eLabs youtu.be/gwQ0r-BuREU?hd=1
      • Computer-controlled nano-experiments
      • Automated data capture and storage to eSciDoc
    • Presentations: Q:130_MitarbeiterDemaine JeffreyPROJECTSeScience
  • eSciDoc implementation
  • eSciDoc implementation
  • eScience and iFQ
    • Datasets are now citable:
    • Irino, T; Tada, R (2000): (Table A1) Major element and biogenic silica concentrations in ODP Hole 127-797B sediments. Geological Institute, University of Tokyo , doi:10.1594/PANGAEA.726528. In Supplement to: Irino, Tomohisa; Tada, Ryuji (2000): Quantification of aeolian dust (Kosa) contribution to the Japan Sea sediments and its variation during the last 200 ky. Geochemical Journal , 34(1) , 59-93.
    • Richer metadata allows new kinds of analysis
      • Project
      • Coverage
      • Event
      • Parameters
      • Size (# data points)
  • eScience challenges
    • Who pays for this?
      • OpenAccess model all over again
    • Who is responsible ? the IT guys don’t care about your metadata
      • Researchers
      • Librarians
      • Administrators
    • What are the rewards ?
      • Preserving data
      • Sharing data
      • Writing in silico experiments (software)
  • eScience carrot vs. stick
    • Joint declarations, Feb 2010:
      • American Naturalist
      • Evolution
      • Journal of Evolutionary Biology
      • Molecular Ecology
      • Heredity
      • And others…
    • This journal requires, as a condition for publication, that data supporting the results in the paper should be archived in an appropriate public archive, such as GenBank, TreeBASE, Dryad, or the Knowledge Network for Biocomplexity.
    • http://www.journals.uchicago.edu/doi/full/10.1086/650340
  • eScience challenges
    • Security / confidence
    • Expertise – subject authority
    • No way to search for datasets in WoS/Scopus
      • DOIs not parsed into DB
  • Issues with eScience
    • Taking it too far?
      • Do we really want to preserve everything ?
