159 jacso linking Presentation Transcript

  • 1. LINKING ON STEROIDS Link typology and topologyhttp://www2.hawaii.edu/~jacso/conferences.htm (1) Dr. Péter Jacsó Professor, University of Hawaii San Francisco June 2, 2004 Annual Meeting of the Society for Scholarly Publishing PowerPoint Judit Tiszai
  • 2. LINKS & DEEP THOUGHTS• “All the world’s a stage” - All the WWW is a linkfest• “Money makes the world go round”• Links make the money flow and the world go faster• Mo’ links mo’ better, mo’ faster? – scamsters’ heaven• “Not all that shines is gold” – not all that blue is link• Most scholarly publishers, I/A, aggregator services learned much from e-commerce linking, but …• …diagnosis: from link-anorexia to link-obesity• The good, the bad, the ugly and the dysfunctional Jacsó
  • 3. What Amazon et al. taught usModel for rusty library OPACs in browsing,searching, + LINKING for• reviews from quality sources• publisher blurbs, synopses• sales ranking, bestseller-lists• TOCs, BoB indexes, LiB, SiB, first chapters• other works - by AU, by genre, subject• price comparison/alternatives (doc delivery, anyone?)• aggregate review consensus sites (MetaCritic, RT) Jacsó
  • 4. ACM example Jacsó
  • 5. Optional DetoursExamples for linking on steroids at Jacsó
  • 6. THE BEST & THE REST free/subscribed bib-cits, abstract, FT databases OAI pre-, re-, e-print & publishers’ archives, Scirus• cited, citing, related items, citation analysis in Scitation, arXiv, CiteSeer, CiteBase, ParaCite WoS & beyond CSA, EBSCO, Scopus• journal coverage in Jake, Ulrich’s, Ebsco TSD –caution• download top lists (Annual Reviews, Elsevier CS, etc.)• WorldCat member libraries holding stats• JCR ranking WITHIN category• Still – some remain linkless and clueless Jacsó
  • 7. SCHOLARLY LINKS Linking ≈ citing - refs/cites are THE primary links• User experience is very much database & host-dependent• PsycARTICLES – CSA, Ebsco, OCLC, Ovid, Dialog• Essential, useful & blah links – healthy mix• Take user to citing/cited/related items (bibcit, abstract, FT)• Give clue to user about impact of item/journal• Take user to other works - by AU, by DE, in JN• Maybe take user to journal/publisher site, e-mail• Unforgiving syntax rules due to link resolving by SW Jacsó
  • 8. LINK TYPES by purpose• Primary functional link (FT)• Secondary functional link (abstract)• Tertiary functional link (bibcit)• Primary enhancer link (citing/cited by)• Secondary enhancer link (indirect clout indicator)• Blarney, baloney, eyewash links• Yes, I know: different folks, different strokes• Room amenity: T-1 connection vs. ironing board Jacsó
  • 9. LINK TYPES by vitalitymissing linkstill-born link + the in-betweens - aDOArusting link - resuscitable - dormantdead linkrobust linklink on steroids Jacsó
  • 10. LINK TYPES by domain• Intra-document link• Intra- database link• Inter-document link (within db/archive)• Inter-database link (within host)• Inter-database (within host, subscription dependent)• Inter-host link (subscription-dependent)• Inter-host link (partially subscription dependent)• Inter-host link (partially open access)• Inter-host link (completely open access) Jacsó
  • 11. Databases - Links Jacsó
  • 12. LINK TYPES - by linking tools• DOI, OpenURL, PURL, PII, SICI, BICI, ISBN• Bookmarklets/Favelets – Javascript snippets• Fee-based LinkResolvers, Home-made utilities• TinyURL, Short link, Average Link, ALA link http://www.ala.org/Content/NavigationMenu/Contacts_and_ Questions/FAQ4/FAQ.htm http://www.ala.org/ala/contacts/alafaq/faq.htm Jacsó
  • 13. CHAIN TYPES Jacsó
  • 14. LINK WILLINGNESS / LINK READINESS How many it takes to tango?How many it takes to simply link? 2 Jacsó
  • 15. LINK WILLINGNESS / LINK READINESS How many it takes to power link? Publishers Authors 4 Aggregators Users Jacsó
  • 16. LINK WILLINGNESS / LINK READINESSHow many it takes to link on steroids? 4+n Jacsó
  • 17. # 1 ScenarioThe conservative, linkless record Jacsó
  • 18. Bare minimum record in native PubMed but there are more links than meet the eye Jacsó
  • 19. which shows an other directly related record Jacsó
  • 20. This is the other commentary on Adair and Vohras article Jacsó
  • 21. Related articles listing is triggered by a small javascript- link on PubMed Links to subject-wise related records Jacsó
  • 22. Link to Ovid is chosen (if you subscribe) Jacsó
  • 23. Finds the full record in Journals@Ovid Nice intra-recordlinks and option links Jacsó
  • 24. but havingonlynavigationallinks (exceptfor the linkto an openaccessjournalCurrentResearch inSocialPsychology(CRISP) isnot enough) Jacsó
  • 25. You may continue in Ovid to explore other articles on self-citation Jacsó
  • 26. and find 43, many of them ALSO available as openaccess journals in case you don’t subscribe to all J Jacsó
  • 27. which is easy to Google even without guidance, and the link will take you Jacsó
  • 28. to PMC with a link to FT … Jacsó
  • 29. … of the article which has many extra link options (alert request, insta-comment) Jacsó
  • 30. and you can make a search in CMAJ on the broader topic Jacsó
  • 31. finding an article by Garfield with cited/citing references, of course Jacsó
  • 32. most of which are hotlinked not just listed Jacsó
  • 33. and the citing ones has links to many open access articles Jacsó
  • 34. except for AJR and JCP which, however, offer the article for $8 (try this with your Doc Delivery agency) Jacsó
  • 35. Who Does What?• Author: explores literature/decides target links - can be limited due to modest access• Referee: approves/disapproves links - can be less or more limited than author• Publisher: decides linking tool, format, style• Aggregator: ignores, implements existing links & creates additional links• User: activates and (re-) creates links Subscription-based vs. toll free target Link-resolver endowed vs. pedestrian users Jacsó
  • 36. # 2 scenarioIf you start in H.W. Wilson’s OmniFile and General Science FT Jacsó
  • 37. you get the traditional I/A record with jumpstart link for AU, SU, and ToC search and then some Jacsó
  • 38. this is a jumpstart subject search using thehotlinked Citation analysis descriptorbut you change your mind and want to explore theWilsonLinks Jacsó
  • 39. which can run yourquery in paid and openaccess sources for theitem using the title field(more or less)Say, you want to tryEBSCO ASP Jacsó
  • 40. It does not have FT for the Anseel article but it has LINKS to 9 cited references Jacsó
  • 41. so you look at the record and find a link to your library Jacsó
  • 42. which shows that the 2004 January issue is in - but in Hilo Try this? Jacsó
  • 43. You are not authorized . You store it in your mind for later check-out Jacsó
  • 44. Return to the EBSCO record to display the cited references Notice link to Nature article in FT spot most cited item (#5) by Gottfredson Jacsó
  • 45. You look up the 6 related items which cite Gottfredson in Anseel’s cited referencesYou spot an article which has 216 cited references, another which was cited 5 times (in journals covered by ASP) Jacsó
  • 46. you glance at the one cited 5 times, but don’t click Jacsó
  • 47. rather step back to look at the FT version of the Nature article Jacsó
  • 48. in all its glory Jacsó
  • 49. Then you remember that you do have access to PsycARTICLES as a spoiled reviewer, both from OCLC and from CSA. OCLC shows links to two FT formats, and the record is smartly enhanced by WorldCats information about how many member libraries (2,161) has or had subscription to the journal. Jacsó
  • 50. While you are at OCLC you look up in WorldCat the journal’s standing among the psychology periodicals held by OCLC member libraries. You find that it is the top ranked journal in its league Jacsó
  • 51. then you switch over smoothly to CSASelect both PsycINFO and PsycARTICLES and type the query (poor you) Jacsó
  • 52. It links to both a HTML and PDF version. Some of the cited references also have full-text links (of APA journals) and abstract links (to PsycINFO records). They also link to and show cited by figures (within PsycINFO). You dont understand why the first cited item (Adair) does not have full text and cited by value. Notice this cited by value Jacsó
  • 53. Because APA gave it a wrong title, explosion knowledge not explosion of knowledge. Not even CSAs smart parser can make the match.
  • 54. Getting suspicious,you check theGottfredson citationand realize that itspublication year is1995 instead of 1978,and know that suchsloppiness by APAwill cause problemeven if the date iscorrect in theoriginal article, aswell as in PsycINFO(thats why it didhave "cited by"data).The metadata iswrong "only" inPsycARTICLES. Jacsó
  • 55. In Dialog’simplementationof PsycINFO youdon’t need toworry about thetypos in theyear, the title,and about theirconsequenceson the links –‘cause Dialoghas no intra-database links,let aloneinterdatabaselinks (to ISIdatabases, forexample, whichare also hostedby Dialog) Jacsó
  • 56. This citation mystery whetted your appetite for checking out the Web of Science (WoS) of ISI to see its cited and citing data. The cited number is familiar …. Link buttons Jacsó
  • 57. …. And the details rhyme with what you saw before. Six of them have links to the records in WoS. And when you click on the link to see Gottfredson citedness … Jacsó
  • 58. the citedness figure is much higher than in ASP or PsycINFO,because ISIs breadth of citation indexing is much broader and wider Jacsó
  • 59. While in WoS you take a cursory look at the PsycINFO implementation inWoS as it is only a quick link away, then you go to the link to look up the standing of American Psychologist in the Journal Citation Reports, Jacsó
  • 60. and click on the JCR link button to find out what is the impact factor of American Psychologist Jacsó
  • 61. even though you have access only to an earlier edition, the link to its 5- year citation trends Jacsó
  • 62. It Is quite telling in and by itself
  • 63. but the Impact Factor is put in the best perspective when you see how it stands among the 105 journals in the same JCR category of General Psychology, at a very close second behind Psychological Bulletin Jacsó
  • 64. Optional DetourExamples for lack of linking Jacsó
  • 65. Who Does What?• Who spoils the links? – Most of us some of the time• Who should mend the fences? - All of us, all the time• How do you keep your links together for good? - DOI• How can you mend a broken link? - Ask Al Green Jacsó
  • 66. WHO Jacsó
