How can young researchers find the relevant conferences in their field? How can researchers inform themselves about the latest research fields in interdisciplinary contexts? Conferences are an established way of academic exchange and offer the opportunity to learn about the latest developments along the entire life cycle of research – from initial ideas to already published results.
TIB – German National Library of Science and Technology and the department Information Systems & Databases at RWTH Aachen University (Chair of Computer Science 5) work together in the ConfIDent project on the development of a service platform for scientific events. Instead of building a new platform from the ground up, we are building on the previous collaborative efforts of many people that created and worked on Openresearch. In the past Openresearch focused not only on scientific events but on a variety of other entities like papers, people, tools, etc.. For a detailed discussion of Openresearchs history see History of OpenResearch.
Now we mainly focus on scientific events and event series. For this task the ConfIDent project was created and receives funding from the German Research Foundation (DFG). It aims to make the descriptive metadata on conferences and other formats of scientific events permanently accessible in a high quality through automated processes and scientific data curating. Openresearch as a sustainable service addresses researchers who search for and publish information on scientific events, as well as universities, information infrastructure institutions, specialised societies, publishers and funding agencies.
Who is Openresearch for
Openresearch as a sustainable service addresses researchers who search for and publish information on scientific events, as well as universities, information infrastructure institutions, specialised societies, publishers and funding agencies.
What Openresearch is not?
- an encyclopedia (please only add research related content),
- a repository for bibliographic information (have a look at http://Bibsonomy.org),
- a open-access archival service (check out http://arxiv.org or http://zenodo.org)
- an open-access publisher (check out http://online-journals.org),
- an organizer of events.
How is a Semantic Wiki different?
Semantic Wikis allow to structure information as would be possible with a database. Other than databases, however , Semantic Wikis are more flexible and easier to use. Openresearch is based on the Semantic MediaWiki. Some of the templates and properties used here are adapted from http://SemanticWeb.org, which was created by Markus Krötsch and other members of the Semantic Web community.
