COAR Next Generation Repositories WG - user stories

279 views

Published on

One of the key aims of the COAR NGR group is to help us to overcome the challenges that still make it difficult to move beyond repositories as document silos. The group wants to see a globally interoperable network of repositories and global services built on top of repositories fulfilling the expectations of users in the 21st century. During this talk, I will address several use cases the COAR NGR working group aims to enable in the next generation of repositories. They include more effective techniques for metadata and content discovery & synchronization, enabling social notification feeds (including commenting and peer-review), supporting data mining, enabling recommender systems and offering new ways for comparing usage of content across repositories.

COAR Next Generation Repositories WG - user stories

  1. 1. COAR Next Generation Repositories - User stories and current developments Petr Knoth
  2. 2. Next generation repositories working group The aim of this activity is to develop a global network of repositories that allows frictionless access to open content and encourages the creation of cross-repository added-value services.
  3. 3. User stories • Data mining • Discovering metadata that describe a scholarly resource • Discovering the identifier of a scholarly resource • Discovering usage rights • Resource syncing and notification • Recognizing the user • Commenting & annotating • Providing a social notification feed • Recommender systems for repositories • Preservation • Peer-review • Comparing usage https://www.coar- repositories.org/files/COAR-Next- Generation-Repositories-February-7- 2017.pdf

  5. 5. Repositories in crises? »Richard Poynder’s interview with Clifford Lynch: http://poynder.blogspot.ch/2016/09/q-with-cnis-clifford-lynch-time- to-re_22.html »Eric van de Velde: “Institutional Repository (IR) is obsolete. Its flawed foundation cannot be repaired. The IR must be phased out and replaced with viable alternatives”: http://scitechsociety.blogspot.ch/2016/07/let-ir-rip.html »Criticism of lack of interoperability across repositories. »No comparison with the publishing platforms which are by far less interoperable!
  6. 6. Importance of interoperability Lack of interoperability in the scholarly communication system is a major barrier to innovation.
  7. 7. Current repositories Services we can develop with repositories today Persistence layer Persistence layer Interoperability Interoperability Metadata Usage interactions and metrics Content Links between resources Notifications Global sign-on Comments Peer- reviews Messages Metadata Services we can develop with the next generation repositories Next generation repositories Conceptual layer Conceptual layer Discovery mechanisms -Batch -Navigation -Notification Batch disco very
  8. 8. Beyond the metadata record »Content! (manuscript, data) »Links (citations, data citations, relatedness, versions, etc.) »User interaction data »Comments »Messages »Peer-reviews »Annotations
  9. 9. Three vertical discovery mechanisms »Batch – Transferring bulk data »Navigation – Helping robots to find resources in repositories by means of navigation »Notification – Enabling robots to subscribe to changes in repositories
  10. 10. User stories and priority areas Discovery and exposing resources Batch Navigation Notification Research workflows and lifecycle Annotation Commenting Social interaction Research evaluation Peer review Metrics • Data mining • Discovering metadata that describe a scholarly resource • Discovering the identifier of a scholarly resource • Discovering usage rights • Resource syncing and notification • Recognizing the user • Commenting & annotating • Providing a social notification feed • Recommender systems for repositories • Preservation • Peer-review • Comparing usage
  11. 11. Global sign on As a user, I want my repository to recognize me and other users so that I can be connected with other users who I know, leave comments and be informed of content that is of interest to me
  12. 12. Transparent social network over repositories »What are the components: ›Annotation ›Commenting/social interaction ›Notification feed ›Recommender systems »Novelty: ›All this in a transparent and distributed environment
  13. 13. Research evaluation »Comparing usage: ›addressing the fact altmetrics don’t work yet in the OA world ›Discovery is a key repository function which has a priority over metrics accuracy! »Open citations »Peer-reviews
  14. 14. Current work »Look deeper into each use case »Identify possible technologies »Provide recommendations
  15. 15. Conclusions ›COAR NGR WG wants to see repositories succeed. To achieve that, the repositories technology needs to be competitive with commercial offerings.
