    2. 2. |Outreach. Collaboration. Innovation.••••
    3. 3. Quick Tour• VIVO—a network for academic researchers• ORCID—a unique ID for researchers• DataVerse—a platform for sharing data• DataCite—a protocol/mechanism for citing data + attribution• Total Impact—capturing the true footprint of research• DuraCloud – open cloud platform for storage and preservation• Microsoft Academic Search—a platform for discovery
    4. 4. VIVO• “Enabling National Networking of Scientists”• Originally developed at Cornell University in 2003• Expanded in 2009 through a $12.2M stimulus grant from the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH)• An open source semantic web application that enables the discovery of research and scholarship across disciplines at a particular institution and beyond.• Populated with detailed profiles of faculty and researchers including information such as publications, teaching, service, and professional affiliations.• Provides search functionality for locating people and information within the institution
    5. 5. ORCID• Open Researcher & Contributor ID (ORCID) Initiative – A non-profit organization dedicated to solving the name ambiguity problem in scholarly research and brings together the leaders of the most influential universities, funding organizations, societies, publishers and corporations from around the globe.• Goal: The ideal solution is to establish a registry that is adopted and embraced as the de facto standard by the whole of the community.• Initiated by Thomson-Reuters & Nature Publishing, ORCID now has 44 Founding Sponsors and 250+ participating organizations.• Already some preliminary VIVO / ORCID joint implementations• Deliverable anticipated: Query & Deposit APIs in test this fall, aiming for beta in (late) Spring 2012

    7. 7. Harvard’s “Dataverse” Project Via web application software, data citation standards, and statistical methods, the Dataverse Network project increases scholarly recognition and distributed control for authors, journals, archives, teachers, and others who produce or organize data; facilitates data access and analysis for researchers and students; and ensures long- term preservation whether or not the data are in the public domain. [From the Institute of Quantitative Social Science (IQSS) at Harvard University]
    8. 8. DataCite• An emerging protocol for citing data, based on DOIs.• Founded jointly by TIB (Germany) and the British Library• Goals: – Establish easier access to research data on the Internet – Increase acceptance of research data as legitimate, citable contributions to the scholarly record – Support data archiving that will permit results to be verified and re-purposed for future study• Currently: – 15 members – Over 1,000,000 DOIs registered [Digital Object Identifier] – Metadata specifications released – Shared technical infrastructure established
    9. 9. Total Impact• A website that allows one to view the impact of a wide range of research output. It goes beyond traditional measurements of research output -- citations to papers -- to embrace a much broader evidence of use across a wide range of scholarly output types. The system aggregates impact data from many sources and displays it in a single report, which is given a permaURL for dissemination and can be updated any time.• Total Impact can track a wide range of research artifacts— including papers, datasets, software, preprints, and slides.• See also: – API demo – CitedIn – PLoS Article-Level Metrics application – ReaderMeter – Science Card – Press Forward initiative
    10. 10. DuraCloud• “A hosted service and open technology developed by DuraSpace that makes it easy for organizations and end users to use cloud services. DuraCloud leverages existing cloud infrastructure to enable durability and access to digital content.”• Officially launched v1 this week!• 11 pilot partners, including—Columbia University, Northwestern University, Rice University, et al.
