Linked Data Standards and Infrastructure for Scientific Publishing (W3C LEDP 2011 Workshop)

  1. 1. Linked Data Standards andInfrastructure for Scientific PublishingBradley P. AllenElsevier LabsW3C Workshop on Linked Enterprise Data Patterns6 December 2011
  2. 2. The role of linked data in STM publishing Smart Content Delivery Better discovery through semantic search & navigation Linked data from •Faceted search & browse partners and the Web •Ontology-driven navigation •Task-specific results •Personalized/localized results •Question answering Better understanding through Text Entities, analysis and visualization •Tag cloudsScholarly concepts and •Heatmapscontent relationships •Streamgraphs Tables •Scatterplots •Time series •Animations Images New knowledge through aggregation and synthesis •Topic pages Scholarly •Social network maps knowledge •Geolocation maps organization •Data mashups systems •Text mining reports 2
  3. 3. Scientific publications as linked data Linked data Entity record Document Acquire Deliver Media object Transform, Enhance, Index, Analyze, Compose 3
  4. 4. Elsevier’s approach • Embrace linked data principles while leveraging our existing content production workflow and infrastructure – Find the right balance between production/QA and online delivery • Leverage partners for content enhancement and knowledge organization – Reuse Web-standard vocabularies, taxonomies, ontologies and entity resources where possible • Build out linked data design patterns for application development • Deliver benefits across the complementary use cases of researcher and practitioner 4
  5. 5. Elsevier work to date • Standards – RDF named graphs conformant with use-specific XML schemas for production/QA – Taxonomies in SKOS • Infrastructure – Linked Data Repository with CRUD API, Atom feeds for online delivery services – Virtual Total Warehouse for content repository federation • Applications – Semantic search for medical researchers and practitioners – Lancet, SciVerse app mashups 5
  6. 6. LEDP2011: what we want to discuss • Easing technology adoption by enterprise IT staff • Best practices for knowledge organization systems management • Infrastructure for scholarly linked data publishing 6
  7. 7. Easing technology adoption • Tools and best practices for URL and namespace management and governance • Best practices for publishing and consuming linked data that address IT concerns rather than legacy RDF issues – 2006 vs. later versions of “Four Principles” – Serialization “impedance mismatch” – RDF APIs vs. SPARQL – HTTP Range-14 7
  8. 8. Best practices for knowledge organization • Tools and best practices for global/local knowledge organization systems management • Standards for named entities and registries crucial to accreditation, provenance and trust – e.g. author identifiers and profiles in ORCID 8
  9. 9. Infrastructure for scholarly linked data publishing • Validators for linked data • Standards supporting scholarly publishing workflows – Named graphs – Versioning – Access & entitlement • Standards and best practices for annotation of scholarly content – e.g. CITO, SWAN, SIOC, AO, OAC • Support for free text search 9
