Open Science Graphs Interoperability Workshop

Organizers: Amir Aryani - Research Graph Foundation, Martin Fenner - DataCite, Wouter Haak - Elsevier, Paolo Manghi - OpenAIRE, ISTI, CNR
Duration: 2 hrs

This workshop will focus on real OSG experiences, on their intended use-cases, customers, and value-added services. On the basis of these stories, the attendees will interactively discuss concrete challenges and benefits of OSG interoperability, in order to identify possible use-cases, classes of customers, intended usages, graph information models, and actions towards smooth information exchange across such graphs.

Workshop abstract

The wave of Open Science, urging to achieve science transparency and reproducibility, is demanding scientists, communities, institutions, and policymakers, at defining and adopting methodologies, policies, and tools for publishing research products beyond the scientific article, such as research data, software, digital experiments, etc... As a consequence of this trend, researchers are depositing into scholarly communication data sources metadata and files relative to all these products, together with semantic links between them, and towards other relevant entities, such as those kept in registries for authors, organizations, and data sources (e.g. ORCID, grid.ac, re3data.org). De facto, Open Science publishing practices materialize a federated/de-centralized global Open Science Graph. Needless to say, there is a great interest to contribute to and/or consume the Open Science Graph (OSG) for sharing, discovering, and monitoring open science. Several initiatives are indeed aggregating tailored subsets such sources to build OSGs, subsets of the global OSG, capable of serving specific user needs: Google Scholar, Microsoft Academics, Scopus, FREYA PID Graph, ResearchGraph, OpenAIRE Research Graph, Open Research Knowledge Graph, Human Brain Project Knowledge Graph are just a few of the real-case OSGs being built and consumed out there. Although such activities could easily benefit from each other, as each of them aggregates, materializes, and enriches a potentially different graph as a result of specialized skills, information exchange between the relative provision services takes place bi-laterally. No interoperability framework (i.e. information model, exchange format, protocols) has been devised, suggested, adopted, that would facilitate graph metadata exchange across any OSG.

This workshop will focus on real OSG experiences, on their intended use-cases, customers, and value-added services. On the basis of these stories, the attendees will interactively discuss concrete challenges and benefits of OSG interoperability, in order to identify possible use-cases, classes of customers, intended usages, graph information models, and actions towards smooth information exchange across such graphs.

target audience

This workshop welcomes any possible consumer of discovering or monitoring services built over Open Science Graphs (funders, policy makers, institutions, scientists) and any practitioners or researchers willing to re-use such graphs or building such graphs.

Learning Outcome
