ISIDORE : acces to open data of arts & humanities

  1. 1. Situation of the digital data and existing services in FrancePortail WebWeb portal Web portal Web portal Portail Web Web portal Portail Web Web portal BiblioSHS HALSHS, Persée (A&H bibliographic Labs databases TEL search engine)
  2. 2. Into the ISIDORE « box »DataDataDataData
  3. 3. Planning● Stage 1 (november 2009 – november 2010) ● Unified access to the current data of the "historical" operators ● Search engine + web, API, Sparql endpoint● Stage 2 (november 2010 – november 2011) ● References construction et normalization ● Enrichment of ISIDOREs services (API + S-endpoint)● Stage 3 (november 2011 – november 2012) ● Data producer references dissemination ● Uptake of new connectors based of RDFa, RDF
  4. 4. Core of ISIDORE● Involvement of A&H data producers : Librairies ; Open archives ; Electronic editors, etc.● Use of the international standards, with favour to open standards (RDF, RDFa, RSS, OAI-PMH, XML, XSL, etc.)● Actions of dissemination of the ISIDORE methods● Enhancement of structured data, metadata, references autority list made by researchers or information managers from labs● Iterative process
  5. 5. TeamPartnership between public and private sector1 ) An internal CNRSs team● Project directors : Jean-Luc Minel (Univ. Paris Ouest La Défense) and Stéphane Pouyllau (CNRS engineer at TGE ADONIS)● Project manager : Laurent Capelli, (CNRS engineer at CCSD)● Software developpers & web : Jean-baptiste Génicot, Philippe Correia, Loic Comparet (TGE ADONIS et CCSD)2) a european tenders assigned to a consortium by Antidot,Mondeca, Sword
  6. 6. Expected gains- contribution to the - construction of newinternational visibility of the referencesA&H data production - exploitation on the A&H- unified access to the metadatarepartee data - scattering of the best- contribution to the reflexion practices in A&H (projecton the evolution of the managment, use of mainworkspace environment of formats, standards, etc... )the A&H researcher
  7. 7. Technological gains for Social Sciences and Humanities● ISIDORE : between web 2.0 and web 3.0 world : ● ISIDORE use web of data and linked data methods ● ISIDORE helps to disseminate RDF model into A&D databases ● ISIDORE helps to open and share scientific data
  8. 8. Others similar projects
  9. 9. For researchers ISIDORE is alsoa web site.Currently : ISIDORE contents745 data point harvested, andmore than 900 000 documentsindexed.
  10. 10. Navigation principles● Query on words● Boolean operators● Dynamic filtering on several criteria such as : ● Temporal periods ● Documentation typology ● Data providers ● Specific categories from main providers such as, Open Archives, etc.
  11. 11. Navigation principles ● Assisted queries based on principles of association which use ● Lexical frequencies calculation ● Similarities between texts (bag of words) ● Heuristics

  13. 13. Isidore in the cloud computing
  14. 14. ISIDORE : from a provider point of view● ISIDORE provides a persistent identification for the harvested data (handle system) : ● If the ressource has already a persistent ID (DOI, …) the provider choose between – Using this ID – Using the ID given by ISIDORE (handle) ● If the ressource does not have an ID – The provider could use the ID given by ISIDORE (handle) => Persistent identification service
  15. 15. ISIDORE : from a researcher point of view● Enhancement of data : ● Exploring an issue ● Perusing a scientific field ● Surveying a topic● Toolkit : ● ISIDORE is also an API● Integration in the Web site tools● Access point using standards of Web of data(sparql end point)
