  • Building a Taxonomy and Nomenclature of Collaborative Writing to Improve Interdisciplinary Research and Practice
  • Transcript

    • 1. Timeliner: SupportingCollaborative Scientific Writing Vladimir Tomberg David Lamas Mart Laanpere KMEL 2011, Hong Kong – December 09, 2011
    • 2. Intention to Write Scientific PaperDecember 2011 Vladimir Tomberg, David Lamas, Mart Laanpere 2
    • 3. Nature of Scientific Writing Today"Any issue of Nature today hasnearly the same number ofArticles and Letters as one from1950, but about four times asmany authors"Galegher et all (Ed.) Intellectual Teamwork: Socialand Technological Foundations of CooperativeDecember 2011 Vladimir Tomberg, David Lamas, Mart Laanpere 3Work, Erlbaum, 1990
    • 4. Collaborative Writing Issues• Finding right target (conference, journal);• Finding right partners (bottom-up approach);• Organizing “Personal Writing Environment”;• Planning and managing collaborative writing processDecember 2011 Vladimir Tomberg, David Lamas, Mart Laanpere 4
    • 5. How we plan collaborative writing?December 2011 Vladimir Tomberg, David Lamas, Mart Laanpere 5
    • 6. Research question: what are the existing collaborative writing patterns today among researchers?December 2011 Vladimir Tomberg, David Lamas, Mart Laanpere 6
    • 7. Initial Survey• Was conducted among twelve researchers in Tallinn University (Estonia) and Simon Frasier University (Canada);• Followed by two design iterations:1. Defining project boundaries using activity- centered design approach;2. Identifying expected affordances using user- centered design approachDecember 2011 Vladimir Tomberg, David Lamas, Mart Laanpere 7
    • 8. Defining Project Boundaries• Cooperatively identifying and tracking scientific publication opportunities;• Contributing to an open research environment – Promoting awareness of shared goals – Supporting team work• Managing writing tasks with a decentralized and light project management approach: resources mostly are kept in web-services;December 2011 Vladimir Tomberg, David Lamas, Mart Laanpere 8
    • 9. Results Collected from Activity-centered Design StudyDecember 2011 Vladimir Tomberg, David Lamas, Mart Laanpere 9
    • 10. CfP• CfP is most common catalyst for starting writing;• Usually it is gathered from different sources (WikiCfP, RSS, other sources),• Includes important key dates for a project (deadlines, milestones);• Has a diversity of types of deadlines;• Problem: absence of suitable ontology for describing modern call for papersDecember 2011 Vladimir Tomberg, David Lamas, Mart Laanpere 10
    • 11. Call Ontology• Proposed in framework of Timeliner research;• Based on several existing ontologies: DERI CfP, ESWC2006 Conference Ontology, Foaf, Time, Dublin Core, Bibo;• Describes concepts for events, submissions, dates, publications, people, and organizations;• Described in paper “Towards a Comprehensive Call Ontology for Research 2.0” Tomberg, Lamas, Laanpere, Reinhard, JovanovicDecember 2011 Vladimir Tomberg, David Lamas, Mart Laanpere 11
    • 12. Designing Timeliner: a tool for supporting collaborative scientific writingDecember 2011 Vladimir Tomberg, David Lamas, Mart Laanpere 12
    • 13. Task and Activities of Collaborative Writing (adapted from Curtis & Lowry, 2004)December 2011 Vladimir Tomberg, David Lamas, Mart Laanpere 13
    • 14. Inspiring ideas• The “paper prototype” – real deviceDecember 2011 Vladimir Tomberg, David Lamas, Mart Laanpere 14
    • 15. Inspiring ideas http://connectdesign.co.krDecember 2011 Vladimir Tomberg, David Lamas, Mart Laanpere 15
    • 16. Inspiring ideas http://miniplan.ru …and software implementationDecember 2011 Vladimir Tomberg, David Lamas, Mart Laanpere 16
    • 17. Our idea• Unwrapping the clock ring…December 2011 Vladimir Tomberg, David Lamas, Mart Laanpere 17
    • 18. Our idea• Adding layers for targeted papers, resources and community…December 2011 Vladimir Tomberg, David Lamas, Mart Laanpere 18
    • 19. Supporting Collaborative Writing• … by recommending the peers and CfP• … by linking the relevant resources• … by monitoring the contributions from peersDecember 2011 Vladimir Tomberg, David Lamas, Mart Laanpere 19
    • 20. First Design Mock-upDecember 2011 Vladimir Tomberg, David Lamas, Mart Laanpere 20
    • 21. Resources Used in Projects• Data we usually working with in our projects: – Goals and tasks, papers, notes, bookmarks, text documents, pictures, and so on• Such data today can be stored as locally, as well as in online web servicesDecember 2011 Vladimir Tomberg, David Lamas, Mart Laanpere 21
    • 22. Timeliner ArchitectureDecember 2011 Vladimir Tomberg, David Lamas, Mart Laanpere 22
    • 23. The next steps• Back to the field – evaluation of scenarios and paper prototypes in participatory design sessions (in process)• Development of the working software prototypeDecember 2011 Vladimir Tomberg, David Lamas, Mart Laanpere 23
    • 24. Thanks for your time! vtomberg@tlu.ee drl@tlu.ee martl@tlu.eeDecember 2011 Vladimir Tomberg, David Lamas, Mart Laanpere 24
