Wikidata and Wikibase as complementary research services for cultural heritage data || TIB-Blog

This is the second instalment of a 2-part blog post regarding the use of Wikidata and Wikibase as research infrastructure. It follows on from the monthly NFDI InfraTalk which focused on the use of Wikibase and knowledge graphs in NFDI4Culture.

Examining Wikidata and Wikibase in the context of research data management applications || TIB-Blog

The monthly NFDI InfraTalk opened up an interesting question regarding the potential of Wikidata to be used as an application for science and research. In this 2-part post series, we expand on the differences between Wikidata and Wikibase instances, and their potential applications in academic contexts.

Project TAPIR: Harvesting the power of PIDs || TIB-Blog

Introduction A recurring obligation of research institutions is reporting in order to provide a wide variety of stakeholders with up-to-date information on research activities happening at the institution. The process of data aggregation and preparation required for this is both time-consuming and labour-intensive. In the TAPIR project, we are therefore testing partially automated procedures for research reporting in the context of university and non-university research. To this end, the question is being investigated as to the extent to which the necessary data aggregation can be carried out on the basis of openly available research information using persistent identifiers. Open data sources At the beginning of the project, we first compiled an overview of current data sources from which we could retrieve open data about research objects via an API. A good starting point was the Registry of Scientometric Data Sources (ROSI), which had already been compiled in a previous TIB project. However, a few more data sources had come up since the last entries and so, as a thank you and to make our additional findings reusable, we have updated ROSI with eight new entries, including ROR, ORCID and OpenAlex. Persistent identifiers From the pool of open data sources, we only considered those that allow research information to be queried using persistent identifiers (PIDs). The advantage of using PIDs is that, in comparison to names, titles or designators, they are unique and permanent and thus there is no need to disambiguate the queried data before further processing. Furthermore, PIDs are (usually)

Projekt TAPIR: Mit der Macht der PIDs || TIB-Blog

Im Projekt TAPIR erproben wir teilautomatisierte Verfahren zur Forschungsberichterstattung im Kontext universitärer und außeruniversitärer Forschung. Wir gehen der Frage nach, inwiefern die dazu erforderliche Datenaggregation auf Basis offen verfügbarer Forschungsinformationen mittels persistenter Identifikatoren durchgeführt werden kann.

Summary of the 1st ORKG Curation Grant Program || TIB-Blog

In 2021, we started our first curation grant program. 9 researchers from various fields of science, engineering and computer science earned a grant to push their field’s open science efforts and curate ORKG content. With over 150 Comparisons and 12 Reviews created, the program was an overwhelming success. But not only the grantees learned something: Due to the close contact to the development team, we got valuable feedback that in parts already made its way into today’s version of the ORKG and will be a basis for constant improvement.
