OpenAIRE datathon encouraging developers and data scientists to analyse the OpenAIRE Information Space

14 Dec 2017 Brussels - The OpenAIRE datathon started on 30 November 2017 and will take place until the end of February 2018. The purpose of the datathon is to encourage developers and data scientists to analyse the OpenAIRE Information Space and improve its user base and third-party services. The OpenAIRE information space consists of a scholarly communication graph interlinking publications, datasets, software, research organisations, funders, and projects. The graph is the result of harvesting and harmonising metadata from about 3000 data providers and counts around 60 million objects.

The graph is accessible via APIs and a web portal and is used to offer research impacts statistics - e.g. number of products linked to given funders, open access trends - e.g. open access ratio of products published by given funders, and discovery of interlinked scholarly products - e.g. articles linked to datasets, software linked to articles for communities.

The datathon encourages teams of computer scientists, data scientists and experts from other fields to join the challenge of studying and analysing the OpenAIRE graph to enhance its discovery and statistical capabilities.

Four main OpenAIRE datasets will be made available as Linked Open Data, Scholix exchange format - JSON scholarly graph representation, XML collections, and full-text collections.

The topics leading the challenge are:

  • Enabling multi-disciplinary or discipline-specific discovery and stats functionality;
  • Novel techniques to enable measurement of scientific impact, e.g. counters, links, provenance;
  • Innovative techniques to measure scientific impact, e.g. measures of quality;
  • Enabling reproducibility, e.g. re-use oriented metadata, meaningful interlinking of objects;
  • De-duplication of the information space, e.g. disambiguation of authors, disambiguation of organisations.

The two teams proposing the most outstanding and innovative solutions will be awarded an Apple iPad Pro and a featuring on the OpenAIRE website.

The datathon will last for 3 months until 28 February 2018. Registration is open until 15 January 2018. You can visit the datathon website for more information and competition rules.
