UKRISS - Harmonised Core Information Reporting Profile

  1. 1. Harmonised CORE Information Reporting Profile Brigitte Joerg, PhD, euroCRIS, JeiBee Ltd. www.eurocris.org
  2. 2. Towards a Core Information Reporting Model „Institution submits report to funder“ www.eurocris.org
  3. 3. UKRISS Modeling Approach 1. Bottom-Up Analysis a. ROS (ROS) objects and fields b. ResearchFish (RF) objects and fields 1. Consulting Best Practices a. b. MICE; REF; DESCRIBE; CRISPool, etc. Essential: “Theory-building and logic-modelling is essential to establish causal inference in evaluation.” 1. Top-Down Use-Case driven Modeling a. “institution submits report to funder” www.eurocris.org
  4. 4. Results: Bottom-up Analysis (object-harmonisation) ● Current Harmonisation ○ ○ Objects (e.g. Publication; IP; Partnerships, etc.) via e.g. Mappings to UKRISS Model ● Potential Harmonisation ○ ○ Publication Dataset Objects (e.g. Dataset; Event; Exploitation; Key Findings; Product/Intervention) via e.g. Extension assigning Objects to the UKRISS Model Intellectual Property Dissemi nation / Commu nication Event Exploitation Collaboration / Partnership Product / Intervention Spinout Award Recognition Impact Further Funding Key Findings Objects ROS ResearchFish www.eurocris.org Staff Development Vocabularies
  5. 5. Results: Bottom-up Analysis (field-harmonisation) ● Current Harmonisation ○ Semantic Similarity such as e.g. ■ ■ RF: “Provide a short name/title for this output.” ROS: “Series Title” ● Potential Harmonisation ○ Semantic Similarity through extensions such as e.g. ■ ■ Publication Dataset Mapping to UKRISS:Output Types (via ROS/RF Mappings) Extensions such as UKRISS IDs (e.g. OrgID; PersonID, etc). Intellectual Property Dissemi nation / Commu nication Event Exploitation Collaboration / Partnership Product / Intervention Spinout Award Recognition Impact Further Funding Key Findings Objects ROS ResearchFish www.eurocris.org Staff Development Vocabularies
  6. 6. ROS/RF Harmonisation Degrees (based on Field counts / semantic ‚similarity‘) Similarity Examples: RF: “Provide a short name/title for this output.” ROS: “Series Title” RF: Year of Publication ROS: Date Published RF: Volume ROS: Volume Number Total Field Counts ROS 235 ResearchFish 99 Current Harmonisation 45 Current Harmonisation = Semantic Field Similarity Potential Harmonisation 31 Potential Harmonisation = via UKRISS Field Extensions www.eurocris.org
  7. 7. ROS/RF Harmonisation Degrees (based on Field counts / semantic ‚similarity‘) www.eurocris.org
  8. 8. ROS/RF Harmonisation Degrees (based on Field counts / semantic ‚similarity‘) compared to total www.eurocris.org
  9. 9. ROS/RF Harmonisation Degrees (Vocabulary counts following Field ‚similarity‘) Similarity Examples: ROS: Publication Type RF: Type of Publication ROS: International Audience RF: “What was the extent of geographical "reach" of this activity (e.g. [...] region, nation, or international)? Total Vocabulary Counts ROS 39 ResearchFish 12 Current Harmonisation 5 Potential Harmonisation Needs further Investigation www.eurocris.org Current Harmonisation = Semantic Field Similarity Potential Harmonisation = via UKRISS Field Extensions
  10. 10. UKRISS Modeling Approach Following Best Practice - Recommend a higher level overarching Reporting Model as introduced in: “Measuring the Impact of Research” (2007)* ATN = Australian Technology Network of Universities, which includes Curtin University of Technology, University of South Australia, RMIT University, University of Technology, Sydney and Queensland University of Technology *http://www.atn.edu.au/docs/Research%20Global%20-%20Measuring%20the%20impact%20of%20research.pdf www.eurocris.org

  15. 15. EuroCRIS Membership Main activity is the development, maintenance and implementation of the CERIF metadatamodel, the “Common Euopean Research Information Format”, a standard for the development, implementation and interoperability of current research information systems (CRIS) and their various application. CERIF is an official EU Recommendation to Member States An international not-for-profit organisation, bringing together users, experts and developers of research information systems. Current membership is 172: 113 institutional, 37 personal and 22 affiliate (with altogether 325 delegates from 43 countries). www.eurocris.org
