WikiData Import


Import Scientific Event Series/Event instances into Wikidata as a pseudo-PID provider


  • import Data Donations to Wikidata as a PID provider to that later DataCite PID creation is simpler
  • reuse Wikidata curation infrastructure and resources
  • Define minimum viable data set


  • Agree on Datasets to be imported
  • Test importing a to find out how comfortable we are with the quality of
  • as minimum viable dataset reuse PTP elements

The Proceedings Title Parser parses Natural Language Proceedings titles to supply the following metadata elements in digital form:

  • title
  • acronym
  • series
  • homepage (+ archive link and state (blue link/red link)
  • ordinal
  • year
  • month
  • country
  • region
  • city
  • startdate
  • enddate
  • frequency
  • event type

    • did happen?
    • indicator of trust (1: good, 0: predatory)
    • provenance identifiers (dblp, openresearch, GND, wikidata, ...)
    • proceedings identfiers (url, doi, ...)

Combined DBLP and OpenResearch dataset

OpenResearch and Microsoft Academic data matched with DBLP conference series data in this spreadsheet. These 296 rows represent the strongest matches between DBLP and OpenResearch data; part of a larger dataset with 5,385 series. Columns containing results of exact match, fingerprint, ngram fingerprint, and difflib comparisons of event series title are included. In difflib columns the values are scored as follows: match = 1, very similar > 0.9, quite similar > 0.8. To review and discuss before ingest.
