    Leveraging VIVO data: visualizations, queries, and reports Leveraging VIVO data: visualizations, queries, and reports Presentation Transcript

    • Leveraging VIVO DataVisualizations, queries and reportsPaul Albertpaa2013@med.cornell.eduWeill Cornell Medical College
    • Step #1 Get good data. Step #2 ex ceptionalCreate something useful.
    • What can we reallylearn from bad data?
    • Administrators: no fansof the error bar are they
    • Native Visualizations in VIVO Co-author Publicationvisualization sparklines Map of Science Co-investigator Temporal visualization graphs
    • DemoTime
    • Caveats for publication visualizations• Is the data complete?• Map of Science looks at the topic of the journal, not necessarily the article• Agnostic about: - type of publication (e.g., editorial, academic article) - significance of finding - author contribution
    • Generating Reports
    • Westheimers LawA few months in the laboratory can save a few hours in the library.
    • Corollary of Westheimers LawA few hours of SPARQL query construction can save you a few seconds of searching.
    • This does not work.
    • This does.
    • Object property should takeuser to all faculty members who attended Tufts
    • Strongly consider linking outyour data properties as well.
    • The tool of choice for fancy questions SPARQL Query Builder
    • Most needs for dataare not articulated
    • Articulated question #1 Show me a current list ofpublications by the following people.
    • Articulated question #2Which researchers have publishedthe most research articles within agiven set of basic science journals within the last five years?
    • Articulated question #3How many journal articles haveresearchers published between October 2011 and March 2012?
    • Articulated question #4 What is my H-index?
    • Identifying unarticulated research questions extrapolate investigate hypothesize infer interview collaborate
    • I have not failed. Ive just found10,000 ways that wont work.Thomas A. EdisonSource: Yahoo Answers
    • We have proposed several researchquestions that elicited enthusiasm. Dean’s Representative
    • Proposed question #1How has the number of publicationsco-authored with other institutions changed year to year?
    • Proposed question #2Publications appearing in journals of a given impact factor
    • Proposed question #3In any given year, which paper has the most incoming citations?
    • Proposed question #4 Which papers that have receivedfederal funding are not deposited in PubMed Central?
    • Proposed question #5Who are our institutions’ open access key opinion leaders?
    • Proposed question #6 Which PIs have the mostcollaborations based on grant support?
    • Proposed question #7 Which faculty have dual appointments?
    • Modes of Delivery• Emailed attachments - Spreadsheet - PDF - Word file - Bibliographic tool (e.g., .ris file)• Link to VIVO web interface• Third-party “data dashboard”
    • Goals for Reporting
    • 1. Define the key questions. Goal: a set of fundamental questions we ask about our researchers.
    • 2. Allow for more keyquestions to be addressed via browsing Ingest more data in key areas and...In areas where VIVO hasn’t quite figured out how to do something important...
    • 3. Create third-partyframework that will ingest VIVO data and readily answer these questions.Framework will be open source and could be incorporated into VIVO in future releases.
    • Data DashboardProject for Our Summer CS Students• build on Miles Worthington’s Drupal/VIVO work• tackle some of the proposed questions that have not made it into core• can be customized for different viewers• collaboration welcome
    • Questions?Is VIVO Facebook for Researchers?• No Mendeley is… (Ha) library.weill.cornell.edu
