OpenRIF: semantic infrastructure for the scholarly research landscape LIMITED

Limited Capacity seats available

If the diversity of data across institutions and the scholarly landscape were linked in a structured manner, we could address new questions about productivity and collaboration, aid decision-making and investments, and improve attribution of impactful resources and activities beyond publications and grants. We thereby need to link and classify data in various systems and organizations about people and their relationship to different scholarly products, such as publications, grants, presentations, courses, software, material resources, clinical instruments, protocols, etc.

OpenRIF is an open-source organization that aims to provide specific and interoperable semantic constructs to support a diversity of applications including: standardization of research networking systems data, e.g. VIVO, Loki, Profiles, and SciVal using the VIVO-Integrated Semantic Framework (VIVO-ISF); standardization of SciENcv data, the US federal biosketch system; attribution for many different types of contributions across a wide spectrum of scholarship; relating research resources in eagle-i to people and organizations using the eagle-i Resource Ontology (ERO); and tracking of scientific impact realized within clinical guidelines and other policies (in systems such as NIH PARDI).

This workshop will provide participants an introduction to the OpenRIF organization and its current components, invite contribution of use cases and requirements, and aid in the development of the OpenRIF semantic infrastructure.
