Data Infrastructure and the Scholarly Ecosystem of the Future

641 views

Published on

Talk delivered at forum at SURF in the Netherlands with the hashtag #disef. Talk deals with an overview of some thinking being done about elements of the ecosystem for scholarship, as well as some slides dealing with the Australian National Data Service (ands.org.au) and the Research Data Alliance (rd-alliance.org). These latter slides were used during a Q&A session as part of the talk.

  • Another quick thought for mimic the eco system metaphor.
    You know we talk about persistence of scholarly output, for tracking back the evolution of modern science. So we want to create a persistent ecosystem with persistent identifiers, persistent storage, persistent access, persistent governance, etc. Then the question comes; what is persistence?
    I have seen some interesting inspiring TED lectures on Resilience, for example this one http://www.ted.com/talks/johan_rockstrom_let_the_environment_guide_our_development.html and http://www.ted.com/talks/johan_rockstrom_let_the_environment_guide_our_development.html And that makes me thing about the resilience of persistent eco systems....
    Speech, Script, Print, Web,... what is the next habitat for scholarly communication?

  • Sleeping one night over the comment post, the 'Dynamic Knowledge Maps?' is indeed not exactly what I meant...
    'Dynamic Knowledge Maps?' is more the Herbert's ORE idea.
    The 'releases' concept is something different, but not that different when you use the concept of Herbert vd S., not only -between- research output, but also -within- research output.

    1. you can update the research. (versioning with Memento?)
    2. you can fork the research (nice!) (boundary tracking with ORE?)

    And, and...
    And there are some limitations about ORE; it fits the old library thinking, but not the Linked Data thinking. (we experienced this in datamodeling for enhanced publication projects). Argued this with Herbert over a beer. :)
    And can the concepts from nano-publications be used in 'research releases' concept. Eg. provenance. Nice open fields we still can explore :)

    Sorry I only focus on this little aspect of your big eco system.

  • Actually, Dynamic Knowledge Maps is more like the van de Sompel (and others) work on ORE aggregations. You have identified something I was not aware of, but which fits well into the blurring of the boundary between knowledge creation and knowledge sharing. Thanks!

  • Hi Andrew.
    Sorry I didn't attend to the first half of your session.
    As I can follow from the slides, is says that the habitat for scholarly communication has changed, and needs to evolve in to some thing more fit for the web.
    So at the 'Beyond the PDF' conference, they already talked about 'releases', like in software development, instead of 'papers'. I think a nice conceptual way to approach (scholarly) knowledge representation. So say that this 'releases'-thing is where scholarly communication will involve into, can you still use that in your conceptual model of the eco system of the future?
    Oh yes, I see you have put in 'Dynamic Knowlwdge Maps?' in your model. That is exactly what I meant ;)

  6. 6. Thoughts on ecosystems from Jason Priem (emphasis added) •  “The peer-reviewed journal is the product of some 350 years of selective breeding, a thoroughbred exquisitely tuned to wring the best possible performance from the paper-based world of its creation. But the Web has irrevocably changed our information environment — it is no longer the habitat the journal evolved in… •  The next decade will see a dramatic dieback in journals and a Cambrian explosion of communication species evolved for the Web- and network-centric world. Most of these will be failures. … Similarly, we can expect the intense selection pressure generated by scholars' hunger for relevant information to drive rapid evolution in systems for certification, recommendation and assessment.” –  Jason Priem, Scholarship: Beyond the paper, Nature 495, 437–440 (28 March 2013) doi:10.1038/495437a October  3,  2013   CC-­‐BY,  @atreloar

Really? •  Distinction is an artefact of the ‘previous’ system of scholarship •  The evolving system of scholarship is blurring the boundary •  “The Web opens the workshop windows to disseminate scholarship as it happens, erasing the artificial distinction between process and product.” (emphasis added) –  Jason Priem, Scholarship: Beyond the paper, Nature 495, 437– 440 (28 March 2013) doi:10.1038/495437a October  3,  2013   CC-­‐BY,  @atreloar
