Presentation delivered Apr 24th, 2014 at the JGIC'2014 Workshop on Research Information Management at the Institut d'Estudis Catalans (IEC) in Barcelona. It deals with the key role played by global standards and identifiers in enabling system interoperability, with a specific emphasis on the Common European Research Information Format (CERIF) and its growing adoption by CRIS platforms.

Global Standards for System Interoperability: CERIF

  1. 1. Global Standards for System Interoperability: CERIF Pablo de Castro euroCRIS Best Practice TG Leader ORCID Technical Steering Group Member GrandIR Ltd pcastro@grandir.com Jornades de Gestió de la Informació Científica 2014, IEC, Barcelona, Apr 24th, 2014
  2. 2. - Lots of different institutional systems should feed higher-level aggregations (regional, national, European) - 'Internal' vs 'external' interoperability (from an institutional viewpoint) System interoperability: the key concept
  3. 3. - We have persistent identifiers like DOIs, handles, DataCite and ORCID iDs, we have metadata standards like CERIF, DC, MODS, etc - Controlled vocabularies: if systems are to talk to each other, they should speak the same language Global standards a requirement
  4. 4. Requirements for a Common Metadata Format - Complete coverage of research information - Interlinked – providing the context - Allow for many perspectives on research information - Accommodate multilinguality & support translations - Accept the world keeps changing: record history - Declared semantics: definitions rather than terms - Formal syntax – machine processable & understandable (Source: Jan Dvorak, CERIF Task Group Leader) Common European Research Information Format
  5. 5. Common European Research Information Format (simplified version)
  6. 6. CERIF Model Structure
  7. 7. Increasing CERIF implementation in CRIS systems across Europe: UK: Driven by REF2014 Research Assessment Exercise (slide: Rosemary Russell) CERIF and CRIS Systems: UK
  8. 8. Increasing CERIF implementation in CRIS systems across Europe: institutional, commercial and national CRISs CERIF and CRIS Systems: Europe
  9. 9. CERIF-compliance in Spain? CERIFying CVN (FECYT) provides some harmonisation level It would be useful to provide CERIF wrapping to running CRIS systems at institutions
  10. 10. Some applications for CERIF in the system interoperability domain: OpenAIRE
  11. 11. Some applications for CERIF in the system interoperability domain: PT-CRIS (Slide João Moreira, FCT, euroCRIS membership meeting Porto, Nov 2013)
  12. 12. Some applications for CERIF in the system interoperability domain: PRC - Simplified data model - CRIS/DSpace-CRIS interoperability (OpenAIRE-like) - Opportunities for CERIF wrapping of institutional CRISs
  13. 13. Thanks Pablo de Castro euroCRIS Best Practice TG Leader ORCID Technical Steering Group Member GrandIR Ltd. pcastro@grandir.com
