CRIS/CERIF based model of
research results

granularity, circulation and usage
in Socionet

Central Economics and
Mathematics Institute of RAS

Moscow, Russia

Socionet is a CRIS, driven be a
research community


Socionet

data model is compatible with CERIF2008


Socionet

is designed as a virtual multidiscipline research
environment for all types of research actors based on an Open
Science concept


Currently it is a system of (only main subsystems of
socionet.ru
):


Information hub (IH) as a federation of IRs,
RePEc

archives and other
sources with standardized metadata output for software agents (by
RSS, OAI
-
PMH, etc.)


Research data and information space (DIS) as a visualization of full IH
contents for human agents


Online workbench to submit single materials, whole collections and
archives, to create networks of semantic linkages between DIS objects


Monitoring and
scientometric

module, which produce a professional
signal system and an information model of a research community


An input flow of new materials
and usage level

Current challenges of Russian
research community


We have had not bad average level of
research actors’ activity, but we are not
happy with average level of research
results usage


One of main current goals is an
improvement of circulation of research in
order to make research results usage
more efficient

16 data types in
Socionet

Structure of ‘citation’ data object


A text fragment selected to be re
-
used as
an object of research DIS


Title of the object


Link to source article (or proper
bibliographical data of the source)


Terms of usage and recommendation for
potential users


Granularity of research articles


Articles’ authors or any other researchers:


select text fragments for potential re
-
using
from existed research articles


create ‘citation’ type objects by filling in an
online form according suggested structure of
fields


submit it to Socionet DIS for public usage


such granularity can be done in advance (e.g.
by authors of existed articles) or when a
researcher has a necessity to create citations

Collections of ‘citation’ objects
within Socionet DIS


Any researcher can submit:


single potential citations to centralized
collections have included into DIS


own thematic collections of reusable objects
to present it into DIS


Socionet

DIS provides:


navigation and searching over all objects


all possible statistics on citations usage

A tool for research writers to use
citation objects


Using Socionet Online Workbench writers
can:


search needed citations for their articles over
all collections of citation objects existed in DIS


if no, they can submit new citations to the DIS


inspect statistics whom/how selected citations
have been used and take the best from a list


include the citation as linked object into the
article and configure a semantic values for the
linkage

Semantic values of a link between
an article and a citation


Semantic values as usage characteristics:


the citation is a basement for my result


the citation approves (or is approved by) my
result


the citation illustrates of (or has logical
connection with) my result


the citation is wrong or disproved by my result


General comments to selected semantic
values

Benefits for research community


Visible collections of research reusable
objects


Better competition of research result to be
used and cited


Clear picture about types of research
results’ usage and transparent usage
statistics


Better functioning of circulation of research

Conclusion


The virtual research environment can be useful only as
universal international approach, no serious future for
isolated Russian CRIS of research community


Keeping on results of OAI and OAR initiatives the next
international initiative for global research community
should be established


The new initiative should propose a CRIS based model
to organize efficiently research
results granulating,
circulating and using


We are looking for people and organizations interested
in developing of this or similar approach to granularity,
circulation and usage of research results
