Bringing open annotation to all scholarly works (morning session of all-day workshop)
Limited Capacity seats available

This is the morning session for an all-day workshop, organized by Hypothes.is, a non-profit whose mission is to enable a conversation over the world’s knowledge.

Agenda and details: https://www.force11.org/group/annotating-all-knowledge-working-group/aak-coalition-face-face-meeting-bringing-open

At the first Beyond the PDF conference, the goals were lofty and the aims clear: “to move us beyond a static and disparate data and knowledge representation”. With open, web-based annotation a reality, the time and technology is ripe to realize this vision. This workshop will bring together key players in the scholarly communications ecosystem to explore the feasibility and desirability for equipping all books, articles and other digital media, new and old, with the capability for readers to create, share, and discover annotations from colleagues, authors, friends and experts around the globe. This technology should be open source, federated, and based on standards. The goal: to bring open annotation to all scholarly works within 5 years.

The workshop will feature presentations, discussions and demonstrations covering current progress, opportunities and barriers to bringing a pervasive, open annotation layer to all scholarly work. We will consider how open annotation fits into the larger idea of the 21st century Scholarly Commons, through linking of annotations to systems like ORCIDs. Outcomes will be to forge relationships and outline next steps towards achieving the goal.

10am-12pm 4 x 30 min quarters in groups

  • Each group looks at one or two tools/approach hands on. Focused on interactive exploration of the tools rather than a one way demos.
  • Participants move to a different group for each quarter.
  • Tool owners have at least one quarter where they are a participant rather than an "owner".

12pm-12:30pm Discussion and Reporting

Summary
How do different tools to discover research data compare when used by real users with real use cases? Driven by the need in the biomedical community to find data this hands on workshop will explore that question. We will look at the NIH funded bioCADDIE index, Elixir/Excelerate projects, other indexes of biomedical data and generic search engines. While the subject matter is driven by biomedical research exploring tools like nanoHUB show how other fields address the issues. Bring your laptop and examples ready to share. Explore other’s examples and learn something yourself. No Powerpoint - just a working session on searching. We will aim to gather the learning from the workshop to inform NIH’s Big Data to Knowledge program, Elixir’s Excelerate and other resource indexing projects.

Think of this as a hackathon without the hacking. The characteristic of a hackathon we would like to preserve is as a hands-on activity where participants work side by side on a common problem, sharing their knowledge and learning from one another. We won’t build new tools in this workshop, but we will aim to learn more from one another about how we search for data and what different tools can do... so a searchathon.  Maybe you have a better name for it - let us know that too.

Nor are we confined to tools specific to biology, science or research. How far can we get using the search engines that scientists use day to day? If those engines only takes us part of the way then what’s the gap?

The following are examples of the kinds of tools it would be useful to explore.

  • Specialized indexes or catalogs that serve a particular domain well.

  • Bodies of datasets marked up with metadata/microformats which mean that Google, Bing and other search engines are now useful tools to reach into research ot other scholarly domains?

  • Tools that allow metadata mark-up by data producers and integrate with search engines to make that data findable.

The workshop will be organized with a lightning-style introduction to a number of relevant tools. Then we’ll break into groups to share and compare approaches. We’ll wrap up with a brief recap of the main things learnt. After the meeting we’ll share a summary to identify findings useful to the EU Elixir and NIH BD2K indexing projects.

Additional details of each tool are listed  here.

9:15-9:45  Francesco Osborne - Two roads to Semantic Publishing

9:45-10:15 Alex Garcia - A Semantic Print for Experimental Protocols

10:15-10:45 coffee break

10:45-11:15 Anita Bandrowski - Semantic publishing based in scientific ground truth; the RRID use case.

11:15-11:45  Peter Murray-Rust - Semantifying Scholarly publications using ContentMine and Wikidata

11:45-12:15 Panel discussion on the challenges and future of Semantic Publishing (moderated by Michel Dumontier)

12:15-12:30 Wrap up session (Michel Dumontier)



Semantic publishing is "anything that enhances the meaning of a published journal article, facilitates its automated discovery, enables its linking to semantically related articles, provides access to data within the article in actionable form, or facilitates integration of data between papers" [Shotton 2009]. Stronger notions of semantic publishing envisage that the main scientific claims are formally represented and published as entities in their own right. In this workshop we will discuss how to advance practice with respect to these ideals in the age of Big Data and Data Science.

Anticipated outcomes of the workshop include:
  • Learn about the state of the art in semantic publishing
  • Critically evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of semantic annotation versus genuine semantic publishing
  • Assess the role of scientific data with respect to the research article
  • Discuss the sociotechnological challenges faced by semantic publishing
  • Bring academic and commercial interests together
  • Build social networks and identify opportunities for collaboration.
  • Participate in the development of a white paper on semantic publishing

By researchers, for researchers: promote discussions on scholarly communication at academic conferences
Limited Capacity seats available

To get more researchers involved in discussions around scholarly communication, Open Access, Open Science and publication culture, this workshop aims to come up with an actionable plan to get these discussion on the agenda at field-specific academic conferences. Three key areas of intersection with researchers' interests are: a) dissemination and outreach, b) funding and mandates and c) reproducibility.

We will identify what’s currently already happening in these areas at bigger and smaller conferences (like SfN), talk about best practices to facilitate these discussions (e.g. to get tracks/sessions scheduled), and, inspired in part by the Software/Data Carpentry curriculum and the Mozilla Science Lab training program, explore some sort of blueprint for proposals, with a roster of people in various disciplines who would be willing to participate.

We are especially inviting researchers (in all disciplines) to participate in this workshop. Tell us what you would like to see happen at conferences in your field, and let’s work together to make that a reality!

Prior to the workshop, we are crowdsourcing peoples experiences at the various conferences they attend, through this Google Sheet:

OpenRIF: semantic infrastructure for the scholarly research landscape
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.

Discussion of NISO-RDA Privacy and Research Data Project
Limited Capacity full

Even as the opportunities presented by sharing and reuse of scientific data sets become more apparent, sharing human subject data in particular is being hampered by a lack of a framework to address privacy and security concerns. The Research Data Alliance (RDA) and the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) are working to address this challenge through a joint working group, which is being formed in early 2016. That group is working to advance a global consensus framework that will support both privacy and scientific data sharing. The community of Force11 has deep-seated roots in advancing scientific-research sharing and novel discovery through data analysis.

This meeting will provide a forum to discuss the plan of the new working group, potential issues that this working group should address, share information about existing efforts, as well as identify areas of acute need regarding privacy and data sharing.

Bringing open annotation to all scholarly works (afternoon session of all-day workshop)
Limited Capacity seats available

This is the afternoon session for an all-day workshop, organized by Hypothes.is, a non-profit whose mission is to enable a conversation over the world’s knowledge.

Agenda and details: https://www.force11.org/group/annotating-all-knowledge-working-group/aak-coalition-face-face-meeting-bringing-open

At the first Beyond the PDF conference, the goals were lofty and the aims clear: “to move us beyond a static and disparate data and knowledge representation”. With open, web-based annotation a reality, the time and technology is ripe to realize this vision. This workshop will bring together key players in the scholarly communications ecosystem to explore the feasibility and desirability for equipping all books, articles and other digital media, new and old, with the capability for readers to create, share, and discover annotations from colleagues, authors, friends and experts around the globe. This technology should be open source, federated, and based on standards. The goal: to bring open annotation to all scholarly works within 5 years.

The workshop will feature presentations, discussions and demonstrations covering current progress, opportunities and barriers to bringing a pervasive, open annotation layer to all scholarly work. We will consider how open annotation fits into the larger idea of the 21st century Scholarly Commons, through linking of annotations to systems like ORCIDs. Outcomes will be to forge relationships and outline next steps towards achieving the goal.

Couture Curricula - BD2K Data Science Tailored to Your Needs
Limited Capacity seats available

Data science - studying the creation, use, and sharing of data in research - plays a role in many professional activities. Librarians, researchers, students, and publishers alike are looking to leverage new data science techniques and technologies in a wide variety of contexts.

To address the growing need for flexible and effective data science education in diverse settings, we have assembled a set of 32 Open Educational Resource (OER) data science modules. To help people realize the potential of big data, we aim to provide flexible training modules that cover the major topics in data science that include problem description, data set discovery, preparation and creation of data sets, implementation of analytic techniques, ethics, and effective communication. The OER modules include a diverse set of learning materials, including slide decks, video tutorials, interactive exercises, and recommended readings and resources.

This workshop will enable participants to chart their own course through the 32 modules and to effectively use the OERs for their own discipline and organization. Hands on development activities will engage participants through the identification of their audience, defining their learning objectives, mapping the OER curricula, and customizing the curricula for their specific use scenario.

Innovations in Curation
Limited Capacity full

Data are being generated at unprecedented rates, while research budgets are flat or declining in many countries. The research community must find more efficient models for storing, organizing, and accessing data. For a typical data resource, maintaining data is only a fraction of the total cost of data management. The larger cost is associated with finding, accessing, interoperating, and reusing (FAIR) the data—a cost widely underappreciated. Hence, this workshop will examine the importance, impact, and innovation in the field of data curation for digital ecosystems.

Topics to be addressed include: developing consistency among standards, tools, protocols; improving accuracy of text mining; integrating curation into research, publishing, reviewing workflows and laboratory information systems; existing “gold standard” curation vs alternative methods, e.g., crowdsourcing, automation. What are concrete examples where curation has added value and lack of curation has been disastrous? Do we have metrics to evaluate success? Additionally, the training and role of professional curators will be discussed. This workshop will draw upon all key stakeholders—curation practitioners and researchers, data users and reusers, publishers, funders, resource providers. The goal is to promote innovation in curation by gaining an understanding of pain points and opportunities along the data lifecycle.

Putting the Force11 FAIR principles into practice: a community curation of SHARE (part 1)
Limited Capacity full

You are also encouraged to participate in the evening 'curate-a-thon.'

SHARE’s data set of research and scholarly activities throughout their lifecycle is free, openly licensed, and built with open source technology developed at the Center for Open Science (COS). Launched in beta in April 2015 the data set has grown to over 4 million records and 80+ providers, including CrossRef, PubMedCentral, DataOne, library institutional repositories and more. This infrastructure will contribute to a “network of knowledge” that links research objects (e.g., workflows, publications, funding information, data sets) that will enable better stewardship of this work, verification of claims, meta-scholarship, and the discoverability and reuse of these research objects. 

SHARE is committed to openness, transparency, inclusive collaboration, and international interoperability. To make the most use of the data SHARE is aggregating, community involvement and contribution is essential to enhance the highly variable metadata associated with scholarly and research activity, to link objects together as part of the same activity, and in the process to promote innovative scholarship and a range of outputs beyond traditional publications.

This half day workshop will focus on (1) SHARE metadata curation and enhancement needs and priorities as they relate to the FAIR data principles, and (2) Force11 community needs for the SHARE data set. This is a hands-on workshop and attendees are encouraged to bring laptops to follow along.

Defining the Scholarly Commons
Limited Capacity seats available

The digital age is seeing an informal convergence within the scholarly communication space: the Natural and Health Sciences, the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences, applied and professional fields are all discovering that they have more in common when it comes to the future of research communication than differences. What is needed now is a program that will help us realize the potential of this merger: the development of a “Scholarly Commons.”

The Scholarly Commons is not a single platform or tool, but rather the principles, best practices, interfaces and standards that should govern the multidirectional flow of scholarly objects through all phases of the research process from conception to dissemination.

FORCE11 has launched a program designed to define and incubate the idea of the Commons. We are conducting a series of workshops and exercises to examine the best thinking around the world about what is required for a scholarly communications ecosystem designed for 21st century scholarship.

This workshop will provide an overview of the program, disseminate results to date for feedback and provide a forum for discussion and community engagement around this important topic.

Open peer review workshop
Limited Capacity full

Agenda and Background Materials: http://bit.ly/force2016peerreview

Open peer review: will it last or not, and how safe is it?

Peer review as we understand it and apply it as researchers relates to the appraisal of submissions to journals, funders or conferences, in order to trigger funding or publishing decisions. Traditionally, for publications, this was done in almost complete secrecy between the author (s), editor (s) and reviewers.

The literature on the subject is full of cases of excesses and biases that have made the process a subject of contention and problems. Experimentation around open peer review, both pre- and post-publication, has gained momentum in recent years (e.g. F 1000, Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, PubPeer, RIO Journal) and is introducing a sense of equity and transparency into a process that was not known for it.

Though the experiences are still recent and need time to be assessed, the effects of this unbridled openness are largely unexplored.

In this workshop, we propose to discuss and investigate these questions about the future of peer review in an a world dominated by Internet and its proclivity to openness.

Organization Identifiers
Limited Capacity seats available

A gathering of persistent identifier infrastructure providers, community experts, publishers, research organisations and research information consumers, examining the current and future state of persistent identifiers for organizations. We have made significant progress in providing PIDs for people, datasets and publications. However, despite excellent work undertaken by existing players, there is no consistently adopted, open, community-driven infrastructure providing organization IDs.

This meeting will review the current state of the art, starting from work undertaken already by Jisc and CASRAI (http://jisccasraipilot.jiscinvolve.org/wp/working-groups/org-id/) and Crossref, and define a 'minimum viable product' to serve the community's needs. We aim to reach a consensus on a set of next steps and requirements to help us to evolve and develop new and existing infrastructures in this space.

Open software, part 2: CodeMeta
Limited Capacity filling up

While the importance of software in scholarly research and communication is increasingly recognized, there remains widespread differences on what metadata software repositories and indices should collect to support what use cases. Rather than seek a consensus standard, the CodeMeta project aims to create a *crosswalk table* that will allow both researchers and computational tools to translate between widely used existing standards including GitHub, Zenodo, FigShare, DataONE, and DataCite, among others.

In this session, we will present and seek input on a proposed crosswalk table of software metadata. We encourage anyone interested in the problems of software citation or software discovery in scholarly research to join us to discuss how the proposed crosswalk table does or does not help address the needs of their use cases, and what technical and social changes are still needed to move forward.

How to improve research communication through visuals?
Limited Capacity full

This hands-on workshop is designed to empower scholars with visual thinking skills. We expect to help them create confidence and acquire basic skills to move beyond text-dominated research communication.

Using design-thinking methods and the "Research Dissemination Canvas" - a tool we have been developing over the last years - we will go through all important steps and decisions that one needs to take in order to design a customized visualization for a research project targeting a specific group of people.

Our meeting will be divided in two parts. First, we will set the grounds of visual thinking, with vocabulary, grammar and tips to to create visual narratives. In the second part, participants will have the chance to apply their basic skills by visualizing a story--related to a research project--pitched by one of their peers.

No previous drawing skills required!

Putting the Force11 FAIR principles into practice: (part 2) curate-a-thon
Limited Capacity full

SHARE’s data set of research and scholarly activities throughout their lifecycle is free, openly licensed, and built with open source technology developed at the Center for Open Science (COS). Launched in beta in April 2015 the data set has grown to over 4 million records and 80+ providers, including CrossRef, PubMedCentral, DataOne, library institutional repositories and more. This infrastructure will contribute to a “network of knowledge” that links research objects (e.g., workflows, publications, funding information, data sets) that will enable better stewardship of this work, verification of claims, meta-scholarship, and the discoverability and reuse of these research objects. 

SHARE is committed to openness, transparency, inclusive collaboration, and international interoperability. To make the most use of the data SHARE is aggregating, community involvement and contribution is essential to enhance the highly variable metadata associated with scholarly and research activity, to link objects together as part of the same activity, and in the process to promote innovative scholarship and a range of outputs beyond traditional publications.

Join us for curate-a-thon that will give participants the opportunity to directly contribute to enriching the SHARE dataset and implement many of the metadata priorities discussed in the first half of the day. Participants will learn how to access data using API’s, integrate information and datasets using IPython/Jupyter and other tools, and create links between related digital objects.
