Identifiers for Researchers and Data: Increasing Attribution and Discovery– John Kaye

  1. 1. ODIN – ORCID and DataCite Interoperability Network Association of Librarians and Information Professionals in the Social Sciences July 2013 John Kaye – British Library Funded by The European Union Seventh Framework Programme
  2. 2. Summary • Identifiers • ODIN Overview • Humanities and Social Sciences • High Energy Physics • Next Steps
  3. 3. Identifers • Uniquely identify Research Objects • Digital Object Identifiers • DataCite (DOI’s) • CrossRef DOI’s
  4. 4. Identifers • Uniquely identify Research Objects • Archival Research Key’s (ARK’s) • International Standard Book Numbers (ISBN’s) • Uniform Resource Locators (URL’s) • Institutional and other ID’s
  5. 5. People Identifers • Uniquely identify people • Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) • International Standard Name Identifier (ISNI) • Country Based ID’s
  6. 6. ORCID • Infrastructure already exists for researchers to build up a unique open portfolio of research objects
  7. 7. ORCID • Register an ORCID ID and link published papers using ORCID’s tools
  8. 8. Using Identifiers • View the impact of your work using traditional citation metrics and social citations
  9. 9. Using Identifiers Actions on data and their reliance on metadata, data citation, and data management (adapted from Altman, 2012).
  10. 10. ODIN Partners
  11. 11. ODIN Objectives • We want to support development and stimulate adoption of interoperable identifiers for: • Researchers • Inputs (cited work, data) • Outputs (publications and data) • We aim to facilitate information flow within and between research communities, leading to greater re-use of data and exploitation of the knowledge created.
  12. 12. ODIN Challenges Accessibility: seamlessly access datasets used in a journal article, a grant report, or another scholarly artefact Discovery: identify scholarly works or datasets related to each other either through networks of references and citation or through shared contributors Interoperability: connect datasets and contributors across independent platforms using different, but interoperable identifier schemes. Sustainability: ongoing viability of the systems that provide and maintain persistent identifiers.
  13. 13. ODIN Work Streams • Proofs of Concept in Humanities and Social Science and High Energy Physics • Interoperability • Strategy • Internationalisation
  14. 14. ODIN Developments • Developed from work carried out in Interoperability Work Stream • Based on CrossRef Import Tool • Searches DataCite Metadata store and allows users to import datasets into their ORCID Profile • - Feedback welcome!
  15. 15. Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) Image from National Survey for Health and Development
  16. 16. HSS: Birth Cohort Studies • Why Birth Cohort Studies? • Investment • Established/Long history • Tradition of data curation • Multiple Data Providers • High Re-use • Derived Data • Multi-disciplinary • BL Involvement in CLOSER (Cohort and Longitudinal Studies Enhancement Resource)
  17. 17. HSS: Objectives • 1st Year: Preliminary conceptual models for connecting data creators, curators, contributors and data sets will be described • 2nd Year: Concrete workflows will be designed and developed • The development of such workflows will be done in strong collaboration with the relevant stakeholders in the community
  18. 18. HSS: Approach • Technical work – • Conversations and Interviews: • Cohort Study Teams • UK Data Service • International Data Providers • Visit from Australian Data Archive
  19. 19. HSS: Approach Data Sources and Linking in
  20. 20. Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS)
  21. 21. HSS Current Attribution
  22. 22. HSS Current Attribution
  23. 23. Workflows • Consult with Data Centres and providers to see where identifiers fit in their workflows • Assigning roles and names • Assigning identifiers to new datasets • Assigning identifiers to exsiting datasets • How to integrate identifiers into DDI • Push more metadata into DataCite • Provide feedback to datacentres • ‘Nudge’ researchers to cite data properly
  24. 24. Workflows (Data Centre Ingest)
  25. 25. Workflows (Citation)
  26. 26. HSS Next Steps • 1st Year report due in August 2013 • Year 2 HSS tasks • Work with National Survey for Health and Development to implement workflows • Encourage social science data providers to adopt people ID’s • Provide feedback tools for data providers • Look at assigning ORCID’s to other metadata – Ethos • Linking bibliographic citation data for Impact tracking and enhanced discovery • Explore commonalities with High Energy Physics
  27. 27. High Energy Physics
  28. 28. Current status (I) HEP (High-Energy Physics) field specificities: • Multiversioning: from preprint versions until final publications • Hyperauthorship: hundreds/thousands of scientists signing the same article • Data levels of abstraction (CERN, Inspire, HEPData) • Different publication spaces (arXiv, Inspire, publishers) Challenges: • Author identification, improvement of the disambiguation process done in place • Uniquely associate articles/datasets with authors/contributors • Version management during the long publication process
  29. 29. High Energy Physics (HEP) Current Inspire interface
  30. 30. High Energy Physics (HEP) Current Inspire interface  Disambiguation process among thousands of authors:  Names and affiliations  Different ways to write the same information  Clustering algorithm
  31. 31. ODIN Next Steps • Reports available in Summer 2013 • 1st Year Event and Codesprint @ CERN 15th - 17th October 2013 • - Feedback welcome! • Input into and Social Science Proof of Concept, workflows etc. please contact us!
