    Giessen October 9 09 Nano Publication Giessen October 9 09 Nano Publication Presentation Transcript

    • The purpose of open access is to ensure that scientific knowledge can be used and built- upon by anyone
    • Open access is a means to a goal – not a goal in itself
    • What if we could freely get to all the essential knowledge contained in scientific articles, without those articles necessarily being open access?
    • Nano-publication in Science & Medicine Jan Velterop – EUA Autumn Conference – Gießen – 9 October 2009
    • Current knowledge transfer
    • Current knowledge transfer Signal to noise ratio?
    • Current knowledge transfer – an analogy: needle transport
    • Shouldn’t we focus on the ‘needles’ and learn how to reason with the essence of available knowledge?
    • If we did, we could have: – access to far more knowledge than now – access to knowledge in our own language irrespective of the language it was first written in
    • Every problem has its solution
    • Every solution has its problem
    • What is needed? What do we have to do? What do we still have to overcome?
    • from Term to Concept
    • 42
    • The Ogden Triangle Concept The relations between the corners: 1. Object evokes Concept (in writer’s or speaker’s mind) 2. Writer/speaker uses Token to refer to Object 3. Token evokes Concept (in reader‘s or listener's mind) 4. Reader/listener refers Token back to Object ‘cancer’ Term (token) Object ‘cancer’ Malignant Neoplasms Krebskrankheit C0-265 Etc.
    • Terms – representing concepts
    • Terms – representing concepts CAPN3_00265 LGMD2A Jan Velterop CAPN3:c.62G>A nCL-1 Johannes Velterop CAPN3:p.(Gly21Glu) Calpain p94 JJM Velterop dbSNP:rs28364364 Calcium-activated J Velterop neutral proteinase 3 C0000053 CANP 3
    • Terms are language-dependent Concepts are language-independent
    • from Concept to Statement
    • Concept Concept Concept
    • Introducing Triples Concept Concept Concept
    • Statements are Concept ‘Triples’ Jan Velterop presented these slides CAPN3_00265 has pathogenicity LGMD2A Dystrophin interacts with SNT3 Calpain-3 has GO annotation proteosome endopeptidase activity
    • Concept ‘Triples’ are language independent Jan Velterop presented these slides Johannes Velterop vertoonde deze dia’s JJM Velterop zeigte diese Transparantien J Velterop présentait cettes diapositives
    • Annotating Statements
    • Statements are only taken seriously when they can show all, or most, of these attributes:
    • Statements are only taken seriously when they can show all, or most, of these attributes: authorship context strength of concept relation provenance condition directionality time stamp comments
    • Such annotated statements are
    • Such annotated statements are Nano-publications
    • What must a publication be?
    • What must a publication be? Citeable and giving appropriate credit? – yes
    • What must a publication be? Citeable and giving appropriate credit? – yes Valuable to scientific progress and understanding? – yes
    • What must a publication be? Citeable and giving appropriate credit? – yes Valuable to scientific progress and understanding? – yes Conveying knowledge? – yes
    • What must a publication be? Citeable and giving appropriate credit? – yes Valuable to scientific progress and understanding? – yes Conveying knowledge? – yes Full-length? – no

    • What’s to be done? De-PDF repository content (or at least add XML or HTML versions) Convert literature to nano-publications it is cheap – current estimate ≈ ¢’s per kilo-character (≈ 1 typical research journal page) Share nano-publications (in an open triple store) Start with biomedical (life science) content simply because semantic concept methodologies are most advanced in that area
