ODIN 1st year Conference Oct 2013 Interoperability: connecting identifiers

  1. 1. Interoperability: connecting identifiers Gudmundur A. Thorisson, PhD ORCID EU / ODIN Project and University of Iceland Computing Services g.thorisson@orcid-eu.org  http://gthorisson.name | http://orcid.org/0000-0001-5635-1860 This work is published under the Creative Commons Attribution license (CC BY: http://creativecommons.org/ licenses/by/3.0/) which means that it can be freely copied, redistributed and adapted, as long as proper attribution is given. ODIN 1st year conference, CERN, Oct 17th 2013 Funded by The European Union Seventh Framework Programme
  2. 2. Technical development in ODIN • ODIN ≠ infrastructure creation project! Output is roadmaps, technical reports, prototypes etc. • Proof-of-principle implementations • British Library: use and citation of social sciences data, long-running British Birth Cohort Studies • CERN: attribution in high-energy physics - dealing with large no. of authors on HEP papers & datasets • Plus ORCID EU “Labs” mini-projects in WP4 Interoperability ODIN 1st year conference, CERN, Oct 17th 2013
  3. 3. Linking contributors and datasets Embedding ORCiDs in data centre workflows Prospective - long term aim ODIN 1st year conference, CERN, Oct 17th 2013
  4. 4. Linking contributors and datasets Embedding ORCiDs in data centre workflows Prospective - long term aim ODIN 1st year conference, CERN, Oct 17th 2013 Ad hoc claiming of already published datasets Retrospective - necessary now and for quite some time
  5. 5. Some terminology • “claiming” = asserting that one has authored or otherwise contributed to a published work • “Person X authored this paper or book” • “Person Y created this dataset” • “Person X had role W in the generation of this dataset and contributed Y and Z” • Focus here on self-claims - claims by contributors themselves about their works ODIN 1st year conference, CERN, Oct 17th 2013
  6. 6. Doing it: DataCite2ORCID • Existing resources available to build on • CrossRef Metadata Search tool http://search.crossref.org • DataCite search API • ORCID Member API • Technical approach • Create simple standalone, loosely coupled tools • Reuse search facility for DataCite search API • Add several functionality and UI tweaks • Aim: to get work metadata into the user’s ORCID profile ODIN 1st year conference, CERN, Oct 17th 2013
  7. 7. The claiming workflow -- LIVE DEMO? -http://datacite.labs.orcid-eu.org ODIN 1st year conference, CERN, Oct 17th 2013
  8. 8. The claiming workflow ODIN 1st year conference, CERN, Oct 17th 2013

  14. 14. So what’s just happened here? Trusted identifiers in two systems have been linked Gudmundur A.

  16. 16. This stuff isn’t nuclear physics • Lots of resources available • Easy to build useful 3rd-parth service • Where there’s will there’s a way ODIN 1st year conference, CERN, Oct 17th 2013
  17. 17. Challenges, obstacles, next steps • Metadata quality and consistency • DataCite vs. CrossRef vs. ORCID • From links to semantics - capture nature of the dataset-to-contributor relationship • ORCID Working Groups are discussing these and related issues • Q: how can we best align with and reuse/adapt existing standards & community ontologies/vocabularies? ODIN 1st year conference, CERN, Oct 17th 2013
  18. 18. Not yet another standard please! Credit: http://xkcd.com/927/ ODIN 1st year conference, CERN, Oct 17th 2013
  19. 19. The open source advantage • Key building blocks • Generic - Sinatra webapp framework, OmniAuth authentication framework, >dozen more • Domain-specific - CrossRef Metadata Search app, omniauth-orcid Ruby gem • Reuse/Remix/Extend to build new things • ORCID is taking advantage of open source • https://github.com/ORCID/ORCID-Source • http://orcid.org/about/community/orcid-technical-community ODIN 1st year conference, CERN, Oct 17th 2013
  20. 20. The ISNI2ORCID tool ODIN 1st year conference, CERN, Oct 17th 2013
  21. 21. Acknowledgements • Martin (the other half of ORCID EU Labs, did majority of work!) • Karl & Geoff @CrossRef for open-sourcing their stuff • ODIN partners for testing&feedback • Numerous other testers in the community who helped us make the tool better ODIN 1st year conference, CERN, Oct 17th 2013
