How do we set a unique author ID standard? Unique author list Doc IDs per author Neil Smalheiser MedlinePubMedIDs James PringleISIDOI? Damien ShermanScopus DOI, scopus authors Thom HickeyOCLCDOI/Lib Auth. Files Israel Lederhendler NIH?? Jeff KrauseNSF?? Katy’s group7 DBs ??COS author profiles Lokman Meho Google??
Process Merge time stamped unique author lists by Knewco, Katy’s group, Neil, ?? Feed result into WikiAuthors Have community clean up – make sure everybody is on the map Use it as index into all major DBs
Incentive Have the most complete, most accurate unique author list. Use to link to all the different DBs. Offer unique services based on this unique author list. E.g., semantic author profiles using Knewco technology, geo + topic mapping using John Burgoon et al’s tools, Marc’s trend analysis, Mike’s ROI indexes Provide search engine that DB providers can freely use to query their DBs via our unique list and display result via their interface.
Other Standards Are DOIs working perfectly? Need time stamped identifiers for Genes, proteins Institutions, journals, countries, geolocation names Grants & proposals Make sure grants.gov collects the right data, e.g., zip codes, …
Make it Multi-lingual & Multi- disciplinary Use Lattes (Brazil) approach, see http://lattes.cnpq.br/index.htmhttp://lattes.cnpq.br/index.htm
Result: Abstract semantic network Time stamped (because attributes change) URIs for different instantiations of xx different entity types. Time stamped interlinkages between any of the xx entity types. E.g., genes, proteins mentioned in paper as well as alg and dataset reported in paper. Author of paper, institution, country, etc. Can this be stored/managed using wiki technology?
