DLIThe 1st stage of the demonstrator service is now available.  Feedback welcome!

This 1st stage has been developeded by the OpenAIRE2020 project and it establishes the underlying infrastructure for:

  • harvesting descriptions of data-publication links from partners,
  • normalising and aggregating that information,
  • establishing quality and links across the whole corpus, and
  • providing a preliminary set of view, query, and harvest interfaces
There are now millions of objects in the system from  a variety of journal publishers, data centres, and research infromation services. See the latest statistics here.

You can be part of the group by simply providing a file with the publication-data links from your system! Just contact us.

The next stages of the demostrator service invloves the development (by PANGAEA) of query and access interfaces optimised for high throughput, precision, programmatic interaction and further enhancements to user interfaces. An exemplar third party consumer application will also be developed (by ANDS) to visualise connections between datasets, publications and other components of scholarly communication such as grants and people.

How would you use such a system?  To inform optimisation of the query and access interfaces, further detail is now sought on end-user scenarios. Why not make sure this system is designed for your needs!
In parallel to the systems development the Working Group is also starting to consider a broader framework of standards, quality, and coordination.

The working group has completed a number of preliminary work packages:
  1.  Guiding principles for the working group and the proposed service
  2. Use-case scenarios (provided by the RMap project)
  3. Conceptualisation  of the technical prototype
  4. Gathering a test corpus of data-publication links
  5. Investigation of non-DOI linking scenarios
