Enhanced Journals ... Made Easy! (28 September 2011)

[EJME presentation PKP Scholarly Publishing Conference 2011]

The preservation of raw and (semi) edited data has become an important step in the scientific research cycle. The open Access availability of this data makes re-use possible, for example in so called ‘Enhanced Publications’. Adding the underlying data and models to an article makes it easier to verify, reproduce, and re-use the results of research. This connection between an article and its underlying data is consolidated in the OAI-ORE standard.

SURFfoundation, the Dutch initiator for innovation in higher education and research, has paid a lot of attention to these Enhanced Publications in recent years. After several projects, that explored the concepts and technologies of these publications, the year 2010 marked the practical implementations of these models.

In the EJME project (Enhanced Journals...Made Easy!) a work process for publishing scientific/scholarly journals with enhanced publications is developed, and put into practice by adapting OJS. To ensure that this work process is realistic, it will be put to the test with two journals published by two different publishers: the Journal of Archaeology in the Low Countries (JALC), published by Amsterdam University Press (AUP), and the International Journal of the Commons (IJC), published by Utrecht University Library/Igitur publishing.

This paper describes how the devised workflow is implemented in OJS, which functionalities of the system had to be adapted, and how organisational issues, for instance licence conditions for deposited data, were dealt with.

  4. 4. Riding the Wave (October 2010), p.8 Indeed, we begin to see what some have called a “fourth paradigm” of science – beyond observation, theory and simulation, and into a new realm of exploration driven by mining new insights from vast, diverse data sets. 4
  5. 5. Enhanced Publication definition of DRIVER II An enhanced publication is a publication that is enriched with three categories of information:  research data (evidence of the research)  extra materials (to illustrate or clarify)  post-publication data (commentaries, ranking) 5
