  • 1. rethinking digital research kaitlin thaney @kaythaney ; @digitalsci wolfram data summit
  • 2. text text text
  • 3. discovery management the “social”
  • 4. discovery & delivery
  • 5. changes at the workbench
  • 6. annotation & curation
  • 7. social &administrative
  • 8. significant(and somewhat silly)gaps still exist
  • 9. what we know, is research.
  • 10. research is changing (as is the research workflow) text text text
  • 11. discovery is still sub-optimal.
  • 12. still the starting point
  • 13. specific DBs no better (in this case, likely worse)
  • 14. name disambiguation103-90-2254-465-14-(Acetylamino)phenol4-13-00-01091 (Beilstein Handbook Reference)4-Acetaminophenol4-Hydroxyacetanilide4-Hydroxyanilid kyseliny octoveAcetamide, N-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-Acetamide, N-(p-hydroxyphenyl)-Acetanilide, 4-hydroxy-APAPN-(4-Hydroxyphenyl)acetamidN-(4-Hydroxyphenyl)acetamideN-(4-Hydroxy-phenyl)-acetamideN-(4-Hydroxyphényl)acétamideN-(4-Hydroxyphenyl)acetanilideN-(p-hydroxyphenyl)acetamideN-Acetyl-4-aminophenolN-Acetyl-p-aminophenol ... and the list goes on ...
  • 15. streamline search
  • 16. our definition of“data” is changing. (or, at least, is long overdue to.)
  • 17. mix of digital and analog mediumsCC-BY-2.0 - Plaxco Lab - http://www.flickr.com/photos/34857812@N04/
  • 18. the non-digital
  • 19. the non-digital parameters
  • 20. ordering + processingthe non-digital
  • 21. protocolsparameters misc. lit
  • 22. trackingexpirationcalibration
  • 23. wasted ... $$$ time resource
  • 24. our practices are limiting us. (and in some cases, harming.)
  • 25. 3 Gb/year
  • 26. 9 Gb/PhD3 Gb/year
  • 27. 30,000,000 Gb/all* 9 Gb/PhD 3 Gb/year * roughly
  • 28. how much made available? 30,000,000 Gb/all* 9 Gb/PhD 3 Gb/year * roughly
  • 29. make stupidly simple... and part of the process.
  • 30. “ Non-reproducible single occurrences are of no significance to science. “ - Karl Popper
  • 31. rethink the way we rank researchers. (the big, hairy “social” issue.)
  • 32. “ What Des-Cartes did was a good step. You have added much several ways, & especially in taking ye colours of thin plates into philosophical consideration.If I have seen further it is by standing on ye shoulders of Giants. “ - Isaac Newton, 1676
  • 33. locked in old mechanisms.
  • 34. “Right now were going through a Cambrian explosion of metrics.” - Johan Bollen Nature 465, 864-866 (2010) | doi:10.1038/465864a
  • 35. there’s been a drastic spike in terms of sheer volume and type
  • 36. citation / impact factor h - indexweighted citations (eigenfactor, sjr) “betweenness centrality” alt-metrics, etc.
  • 37. difficult to ... harmonisetrack /maintain / map understand (even still measure)
  • 38. administrators / funders as influencers drivers ofbehavioral change
  • 39. we’re battlingtradition, not just technology.
