CERIF Interoperability
and LOD

TG LOD leader, euroCRIS

Interoperability: levels and
purposes


Transferring from one place to another or
combining information while retaining
meaning


Some important facts:


Semantics are in the CERIF model


The LOD is not adding by itself any semantics,
only exposing in a different format. So the LOD
“ontologies” are no other thing than a RDF
expression of CERIF.


Improvement in semantics should go either
directly to the CERIF relational model or to some
“extended” ontology

Reasons to share CERIF
data


For the benefit of the public


Applications collecting maps of science combining heterogeneous
sources of information.


For intelligent applications


Applications relating patterns of scientific production with the geospatial
or disciplinary structure of countries.


For partners that need the data transferred for internal processing


E.g. National Agency asks a University for the journal publication
production per Department to benchmark and assign funding..


For partners that need on
-
line access to data.


E.g. a third party creates a Gmail extension that shows you some
information on your contacts by accessing public RIS on
-
line.


For translating data between schemas


E.g. to translate CERIF data into VIVO RDF.

Activity in 2012


This year:


VOA3R implementation (excl. bibliographical data).


Mapping of VIVO and CERIF at the CERIF model
level.


To
-
do:


Publish the base ontologies (and VIVO mapping) in
EuroCRIS

domain.


Finalize and publish the LOD recommendations.


Publish the package to expose CERIF data as LOD
using D2RQ (
config
. Files + install manual).
