Using Wikidata as an Authority for the SowiDataNet Research Data Repository

  1. 1. Using Wikidata as an Authority for the SowiDataNet Research Data Repository Joachim Neubert ZBW – Leibniz Information Centre for Economics, Kiel/Hamburg Lightning Talk ELAG 2016, Kopenhagen 9.6.2016
  2. 2. Geographical scope of research: small piece of controlled metadata • SowiDataNet: Subject data repository on social sciences and economics • Several subject specific knowledge organization systems • Entities for geographical areas are not subject specific at all • Create a custom authority? We need • Countries • States in Germany • „European Union“, and possibly other multinational political unions • Geographical Regions (which are not administrative units – e.g. „Eastern Germany“) Page 2
  3. 3. All of this is in Wikidata! Page 3 • … and by a custom query we can precisely get access to and select from the required portion of the data items • What we gain: • Identifiers • Labels in multiple languages • Links to lots of other identifiers • An abundance of information from Wikipedia • Updates of the underlying data by the community • Open edit interface for contributing own improvements to Wikidata • … with minimal cost and effort
