History and Collaboration

Where science is

hundreds of times

larger than the


surface web


Generally not

searchable by major
search engines

Deep Web

WorldWideScience.org

searches the ‘deep web’

Multilingual
Translations


The
world

s
first

one to
many


and

many to one


multilingual translations tool
in
science.



Ten languages


Arabic, Chinese,
German, English, Spanish, French,
Japanese, Korean, Portuguese,

Relevance to
Scientific Integrity



Intellectual
Honesty

Accuracy

Fairness

Transparency

Responsibility

The intersection of science, ethics, and law is…

Scientific Integrity


WWS.org’s

Relevance to
Scientific Integrity





WWS’s 80+ databases are trusted, authoritative sources



As national, or nationally
-
sanctioned databases, they
have an implicit commitment to
Scientific Integrity



WWS.org’s

Relevance to
Scientific Integrity



With its global search of 80+ databases, WWS…




Distills and ranks the “best of the best”




Serving as a “multiplier” for scientific integrity

What’s next for

WorldWideScience.org?

The Next Frontier for WWS = “Big Data”



How big is “big data”?




Answer = 22,700,000 hits on Google




But “big data” has two major problems

o

It’s hard to find … and

o

It’s hard to navigate …
until now
.

What’s next for

WorldWideScience.org?

Federated Search
of “Big Data”

What’s next for

WorldWideScience.org?



Inclusion of additional scientific data collections



Collaboration opportunities with entities such as
DataCite

and
DataBib



Increased membership and participation, both as
database/source owners and as WWS Alliance
members



Growth of Open Access movement in UK, EU, US
represents next potential expansion for WWS


Future Growth Opportunities for WWS.org

What’s next for

WorldWideScience.org?

Inclusion of Open Access Resources


Currently developing a
prototype for federated
searching of open access
journals
