Isabelle Reiss - Interoperability, visibility, credibility


Published on

In 2018, the SciELO Program will celebrate 20 years of operation, in full alignment with the advances of open science.

The SciELO 20 Years Conference will address and debate – during its three-day program – the main political, methodological and technological issues that define today’s state of the art in scholarly communication and the trends and innovations that is shaping the future of the universal openness of scholarly publishing and its relationship with today’s Open Access journals, in particular those of the SciELO Network.

The program of the conference is organized around the alignment of SciELO journals and operations with the best practices on communication of open science, such as publishing research data, expediting editorial processes and communication through the continuous publication of articles and the adoption of preprints, maximizing the transparency of research evaluation and the flow of scholarly communication, and searching for more comprehensive systems for assessing research, articles and journals.

A two-day meeting of the coordinators of the national collections of the SciELO Network will take place prior to the Conference with focus on the evaluation of SciELO journals and the SciELO Program and their improvement following the lines of action that will guide their development in the forthcoming five years.

The celebration of SciELO’s 20-year anniversary constitutes an important landmark in SciELO’s evolution, and an exceptional moment to promote the advancement of an inclusive, global approach to scholarly communication and to the open access movement while respecting the diversities of thematic and geographic areas, as well as of languages of scientific research.

Isabelle Reiss - Interoperability, visibility, credibility

  1. 1. Interoperability, visibility, credibility Isabelle Reiss Head of Consortia Development Clarivate Analytics
  2. 2. 2 Who we are 2018 relaunch
  3. 3. 3 Interoperability, visibility, credibility Interoperability : the extent to which systems and devices can exchange data, and interpret that shared data • A platform that hosts different databases to make them interact by way of the Citation Connexion Network. • A Plug-in that both memorizes your Subscription entitlements/credentials and searches for additional Open Access documents, resolving the link directly from the Web of Science, in one click, to deliver full-text within the same environment. • An OA platform where reviewers would make their work visible, where publishers could feed the completed reviews automatically from their Journal Management System and this platform would also feed ORCID´s profiles. SciELO Citation Index Kopernio Publons
  4. 4. 4 Visibility not only of the whole database, which would be by means of its distribution/commercialization, but visibility of each record if searched for By means of • An expert and rigorous indexation • Availability of filters to empower each data field • Permanent Curation, Disambiguation, Unification to improve consistency of results Visibility: the state of being able to see or be seen a. The capability of being easily observed b. The capability of providing a clear, unobstructed view Interoperability, visibility, credibility
  5. 5. 5 • The curation, disambiguation, unification mentioned before will help gain on credibility. • An other important factor for credibility is probably the clarity of processes  Which data has been harvested and how?  What were the selection criteria? And importantly enough, what were the de-selection criteria?  How are results displayed – what is the hierarchy ? Interoperability, visibility, credibility Credibility: the quality of being believable or worthy of trust
  6. 6. 6 Q4 2018- Q1 2019: Select databases from the All Databases search page Target your search by selecting the databases of interest to you for maximum control and efficiency.
  7. 7. 7 Coming Soon: Expanded Open Access Identification for analytics & assessment To support assessment use cases, Web of Science will be making three changes to how we handle Open Access versions of articles: 1. More granular Gold and Bronze classification will help you better understand the Open Access landscape. 2. Metadata for ALL identified OA versions for a given article, rather than just one, will help you measure the success of your institutional policies. 3. Preprints will be included to help you see the full picture of available OA content. Available Q4 2018 Does posting a preprint positively or negatively effect impact of the published version? Has my institution’s policy on self-archiving been successful? How is my portfolio of full Gold Journals performing? Upcoming changes to Open Access in the Web of Science will help you understand: Current Coming soon Pub Year=2017 Pub Year=2018
  8. 8. 8 Improve your institutional systems with trustworthy publications data APIs | Custom Data Delivery | VIVO Services Easy data integration into More information about available services Are you confident that your strategic decisions are based on the best available data?
  9. 9. 9 News about old IF - citation repartition graph - citable items displayed - 5 other measures
  10. 10. 10 Scielo Citation Index on the Web of Science Our citation network includes Chinese database Integration with ORCID /Researcher Id / EndNote 660K records from 14 collections since 2002
  11. 11. 11 Interoperability, Visibility, Credibility More Transparency • Transparent database structures that enable interoperability and control • Transparent display hierarchies that ensure visibility thanks to multiple filtering options • Transparent harvesting workflows and selection/de-selection criteria and to maintain credibility
  12. 12. 12Some questions If transparency of criteria is necessary to gain credibility. o why do I see these results rather than others in the first page? o is it because of my search history/ my language, my profile, my location? o is it because of others‘ history? Popular searches? Trend topics? If curation is necessary to gain credibility and also to let room for visibility of each and all items o after how many pages of results do I only find duplicate results? o Is duplication due to slightly different indexation of the same record or same indexation of a slightly different record? And if I look at aggregated data, or statistics and ratios based on aggregated data, o can I go back to the source? o can these results be recalculated for control? o What are the analytical capabilities of the database? What are the indicators that I´ll want to see? To finish, a question about interoperability: o can there be an excess of it? This would be a closed integration, where systems which used to run independently are integrated into the same operating workflow. Then this integration into a suite of products would make them unable to work without one another. This would lead to a lock up of the user into one sole environment and one sole vendor.
