Comparability Framework

An innovative methodology allows for a multidimensional representation of social transformation issues
by
crossing two
analysis grids;

and exploiting their intersection:

1. Template for informing on Policy Dimensions

Objectives


Develop software for supporting event
-
based activities (e.g.
conferences, research competitions, thematic journal issues,
training seminars; and:
MOST MINISTERIAL
FORA)


Organize documents associated with the event


Support typical roles (e.g. content provider, content reader,
regional administrator etc.) in their activities, to assert quality
on the basis of peer review


Use semantic similarity to interlink
documents
within the event


Use
semantic similarity to interlink documents
across UNESCO
and its partners events


Use semantic similarity to interlink
event documents event with
documents already published in Open Access repositories


Supported roles


UNESCO Administrator


Regional Administrator


Content Editor


Content Reviewer


Content Provider



Content User

Authenticated

Unauthenticated


Explanation of potentially ambiguous terms:



UNESCO Administrator
is a person responsible for
managing the event (not necessarily UNESCO staff).
An authorized partner who is in charge of the event.



Events can be further subdivided into smaller parts
based on geographical regions, thematic areas.
Executive role for organizing the event within the
region has the
Regional
Administrator
.


CLIC Control Flow

CLIC Document Flow


CLIC Project outcomes to date:


Requirement specification carried out in collaboration
with UNESCO


Web domain registration (unescore
-
clic.org)


System design


Interface design


Support for all roles implemented and document flow
implemented


Integration with Open Access repositories: calculating
semantic similarity within the event documents and
between the event documents and the documents
from Open Access repositories.





Implemented CLIC functionalities


Setting up the event by UNESCO Administrator


Allocation of roles within the event


User registration (request and authorization)


Assignment of documents to editors


Assignment of documents to reviewers


Email management within the CLIC system


Document submission


Review management


Document browsing


Enabling/disabling CLIC users


Implemented CLIC
functionalities
… continued


Support for multiple events in parallel:


(conferences, literature reviews, thematic
collections..)


Text extraction and conversion of
pdf

document


Indexing documents


Search


CLIC repository compliance with the Open Access
standards (OAI
-
PMH)


Calculation of semantic similarity





Connecting CLIC documents with Open Access
repositories


Currently CLIC is interlinked with all UK Open
Access repositories, CORE


142 OA repositories


Analyzing full text of documents


Links calculated using semantic similarity

CORE Applications

CORE
Mobile


A native Android
application, which can be used on both
mobile and tablet devices. The
application allows search and navigation
across related papers stored in OA
repositories and downloading full
-
text
articles on the mobile device
.

1.3 M records

80,000 documents

Situation on 15
January
2012


CLIC “receives”

Integration with Open Access repositories

Future?

Future:
Within 2013/14, CORE will interlink documents from
many international Open Access journals (DOAJ) and the
content provided by the European Library (
DiggiCORE
)


Benefits of the CLIC solution


Systematic methodology for organized events


Lower effort required


Organizing events more economical


Running virtual events


Grounding event documents by integration with existing
scientific publications


Interlinking with many more documents (journals,
European Library) … at no extra cost


If CLIC content is interlinked as another OA repository,
mass
dissemination via OA
initiative
?


Access to CLIC content using mobile technology
