Introducing a content integration process for a federation of agricultural institutional repositories (MTSR 2011)

  1. 1. Introducing a content integration process for a federation ofagricultural institutional repositories V. Protonotarios1, L. Gavrilut1, I. Athanasiadis1, Hatzakis1, M-A. Sicilia2 1Greek Research & Technology Network (GRNET) II University of Alcala, Computer Science Department 4th International Workshop on Metadata and Semantics for Agriculture, Food and Environment MTSR 2011, October 12th, 2011, Izmir
  2. 2. Part I: About VOA3R
  3. 3. About VOA3R ProjectWhat is VOA3R? ◦ Virtual Open Access Agriculture & Aquaculture Repository ◦ 36-months CIP-ICT-PSP EU projectVOA3R aims to:Improve access to EU agriculture & aquaculture open access research results
  4. 4. About VOA3R ProjectWhat is VOA3R about?Sharing Scientific and Scholarly Research related to Agriculture, Food & Environment, using (among others): ◦ A federated repository feeding with scholarly content … ◦ A social platform which makes use of …. ◦ A set of domain ontologies ◦ and other integrated components…
  5. 5. About VOA3R ProjectWhat is VOA3R going to develop?Among others, the VOA3R federated repository, which will harvest scholarly content from institutional repositories.How is this going to happen?VOA3R will develop an AP based on the requirements of the project’s content providers

  8. 8. Part II: Content
  9. 9. What about the content? Scholarly content from institutional repositories on agriculture and aquaculture will be aggregated to VOA3R repository = metadata descriptions VOA3R Content Providers currently use a wide variety of metadata standards (e.g. AGRIS, Dublin Core)
  10. 10. What about the content?The issue:How to align all these different metadata APThe solution:To work on a common AP (VOA3R AP), based on the requirements of the VOA3R content providers

  14. 14. Part III: Content population process
  15. 15. Content Population Methodology Controlled Testing phase (7-9/2011)  Enrichment of test metadata records using Confolio Phase 1 (10-12/2011)  Integration of repositories using OAI-PMH Phase 2 (1-8/2012)  Integration of repositories with no OAI-PMH support Phase 3 (9/2012 – 5/2013)  Content population with content from external collaborators
  16. 16. Content Population Methodology
  17. 17. Overview of the Process 1. Uploading/Integration Pre-Check against Core Criteria yes no1. Accessibility under the specified technical criteria.The provider confirms that the resource can be opened or accessed through the provided URL (link). yes no2. Appropriateness against violence, pornography, racism, etc.The provider confirms that the resource does not contain any violent, pornograpic or racistcontent/information. yes no3. Relation of the metadata/content to Agriculture & Aquaculture.The provider confirms that the resource is relevant to agriculture or aquaculture. yes no4. The IPR (intellectual property rights) rules do not prohibit that the resource is promoted through theVOA3R network.The provider confirms that the resource is free of any IPR restrictions that are against itspromotion/description within the VOA3R network.

Appropriateness against violence, pornography, racism, etc.The provider confirms that the resource does not contain any violent, pornograpic or racistcontent/information. yes no3.

  25. 25. Scenario of Use: TestingPhase  Quality Review/Assessment: Grid for VOA3R Subject Experts 1 2 3 4 51 Clarity & Relevance: Is the content clear and relevant to the agricultural environment ?1 (not clear & relevant) to 5 (absolutely clear & relevant) 1 2 3 4 52 Quality: Does the content has a high quality in terms of balanced presentation of ideas, and appropriatelevel of detail ?1 (no) to 5 (yes) 1 2 3 4 53 Appropriateness: Does the resource use appropriate vocabulary, language and concepts for the targetage of people it is adressing ?1 (no, the resource uses inappropriate vocabulary) to 5 (yes, the resource uses appropriate vocabulary) 1 2 3 4 54 Motivation: Is the content motivating a target group of people to start reading more about the subject itpresents ?1 (the content is not motivating) to 5 (the content is motivating) 1 2 3 4 55 Veracity & accuracy: Is the content true and accurate regarding the agricultural environment ?1 (no) to 5 (yes) 1 2 3 4 56 Updated: Is the content up to date or the data and information presented are outdated ?1 (information is outdated) to 5 (information is up to date) 1 2 3 4 57 Accessibility: How accessible is the content to the target group of people ?1 (poorly accessible) to 5 (fully accessible)8 Reusability: Does the content has ability to be used again in another environment and to be understoodby people with different backgrounds ? accept without accept with1 (the content cannot be reused) to 5 (the content can be reused) reject modification modificationFinal recommendation: Please give your final mark and a short comment to justify it.Comment to the submitter:Comment to the VOA3R federation:
  26. 26. Conclusions Despite the wealth of scholarly content found in institutional repositories, the use of different metadata APs raises an issue Agreeing on a common metadata format is a challenge but the VOA3R AP aims to achieve this goal The design and implementation of a well- defined content population/integration process is a crucial component in populating a repository
