    No notes for slide
  • NJ to initiate presentation Word of appreciaton for invitation & collective launch opporltunity Introduction of AB and NJ; note two others involved in project: AS, CT Comment regarding brevity of presentation
  • NJ or AB SURF call provided opportunity to ‘rethink’ previous effort, to redesign, to expand, to adapt to other publishing projects. Note some of features intended for hybrid publications Note book projects involved Note intent to construct a database to house objects of each of the book publications and provide integration (in illustrative fashion) Note emphasis on dissemination: 2 panels, workshop to test instructional materials
  • AB Note: this slide seems to be a duplicate of the objectives slide; it may require modification  I changed the slides a bit to distinguish, and emphasised why these things were important, what their function would be
  • NJ Initial effort to prepare website for conventional schkolarly monograph Indicate what site has and does not have, e.g., no use of persistent identifiers, cq codes, search facility, integration with other related literature In some ways the site is a skeleton still awaiting enhancement (e.g., visualtions not yet included, no dynamic quality / functionality to site, no updates)
  • Anne from here to end
  • We are building a hybrid… This may end up telling us a lot about the two media we are trying to bring together.
  • But hybrids can also result in just the right set of features, just the right adaptations… and under the right circumstances have a very long, happy and prosperous future…

  • 1. Enhancing Scholarly Publishing in the Humanities and Social Sciences: Innovation through Hybrid Forms of Publication Project Parameters, Plans & Reflections SURFfoundation Program Enhanced Publication E-Humanities Group Research Meeting 27 January 2011 KNAW e-Humanities Group / Virtual Knowledge Studio for the Humanities and Social Sciences ( VKS ) Project Coordinator: Nicholas W. Jankowski Participants: Anne Beaulieu, Clifford Tatum, Andrea Scharnhorst 27 Jan. 2011 KNAW e-Humanities Group

  • 3. Backing up: What is ‘enhanced publication’? (1)
    • “… a publication that is enhanced with research data, extra materials, post publication data, database records (e.g. the Protein Data Bank), and that has an object-based structure with explicit links between the objects. In this definition an object can be (part of) an article, a data set, an image, a movie, a comment, a module or a link to information in a database.”
    • (Woutersen-Windhouwer & Brandsma, 2009: 20)

  • 4. Backing up: What is ‘enhanced publication’? (2) ( Wat is een Verrijkte Publicatie? )
    • “ ...bestaat uit een publicatie, meestal in de vorm van tekst, verrijkt met extra materialen. Een publicatie kan een artikel in een tijdschrift, een proefschrift, rapport, notitie of een hoofdstuk uit een boek zijn. Voorwaarde is dat het over (wetenschappelijk) onderzoek gaat en een interpretatie of analyse bevat van primaire data of een afgeleide daarvan. Het begeleidende materiaal kan bijvoorbeeld bestaan uit onderzoeksdata, beeldmateriaal ter illustratie, metadatasets en post-publicatie data zoals commentaren en ranking gegevens. Door de veranderende post-publicatie data is het mogelijk dat een Verrijkte Publicatie zich blijft doorontwikkelen in de tijd.”

  • 10. Towards a ‘path’…
    • Example of path towards ESCAPE tool and SURF version of enriched publication
    • Magchiel Bijsterbosch, ‘enriched publications in 4 steps’
    • -publiceer bronnen op het web (papers in repositories, graphicals on Flickr, data in dbs which are web-queryable)
    • -registreer concepten zodat ze een url hebben (persons, organisations, classifications)
    • -beschrijf de bronnen en leg de relaties (ESCAPE)
    • -publiceer deze relaties
    • Could this be OUR path?
    • building block view of a publication, knowledge as Wikipedia; unambiguous relations; web as ‘information’ (rather than web as communication); ….

  • 11. Virtual Knowledge as enriched publication
    • building block view of a publication; knowledge as Wikipedia; unambiguous relations; web as ‘information’ (rather than web as communication); ….
    • So what kind of path do we need?
    • What kinds of tools are out there to support it?
