1 Facebook for scientists Titus Schleyer et al. 1 of 38 Digital Vita : Leveraging Personal Information Management Practices to Facilitate Research Collaborations Titus Schleyer, DMD, PhD Heiko Spallek, DMD, PhD Brian Butler, MS, PhD

2 Facebook for scientists Titus Schleyer et al. 2 of 38 University of Pittsburgh CTSI: Online Research Community Specific Aim #3 – “…build a collaborative IT infrastructure … that will significantly enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of the research within CTSI” Initial Focus: Facilitating Collaboration Formation

3 Facebook for scientists Titus Schleyer et al. 3 of 38 Grounding Collaboration Facilitation Efforts & Technologies Examination of existing interest directory (FRIP) Interview study of collaborator discovery and collaboration formation practices Review of collaboration & CSCW literature Systematic user needs assessment and alternative exploration

4 Facebook for scientists Titus Schleyer et al. 4 of 38 Outcomes Evaluation and Redesign of a Faculty Research Interests Index for Facilitating Formation of Collaboration Networks (Working Paper) FRIP+ Prototype FRIP+/DV Implementation Planning Framework Schleyer T, Spallek H, Butler BS, Subramanian S, Weiss D, Poythress ML, Rattanathikun P, Mueller G. Facebook for scientists: Requirements and services for optimizing how scientific collaborations are established.

Requirements for expertise location systems in biomedical science and the Semantic Web. Proceedings of “Personal Identification and Collaborations: Knowledge Mediation and Extraction (PICKME)”, workshop at the International Semantic Web Conference, 2008.Requirements for expertise location systems in biomedical science and the Semantic Web TeamORCA final report [User Needs Assessment and Alternative Exploration] Digital Vita Prototype Video: Digital Vita Specification

5 Facebook for scientists Titus Schleyer et al. 5 of 38 Core Digital|Vita (DV) functions Maintaining, formatting and semi- automated updating of biographical information Searching for experts Building and maintaining the social network, and managing document flow

6 Facebook for scientists Titus Schleyer et al. 6 of 38 DV: My Information (input)

7 Facebook for scientists Titus Schleyer et al. 7 of 38 Services: Maintaining biographical information Importing information from existing sources –MEDLINE –CRISP –Internal systems Propagating information through the social network –updates by coauthors Manually entering and updating information

8 Facebook for scientists Titus Schleyer et al. 8 of 38 DV: My Information (output)

9 Facebook for scientists Titus Schleyer et al. 9 of 38 Services: Utilizing biographical information Output to several standard formats –Online profile –Internal CV format –NIH biosketch –Faculty annual report Customization and versioning Selective updating

10 Facebook for scientists Titus Schleyer et al. 10 of 38 Services: Exploiting & Managing Social Network Data Simple and advanced search of profiles –simple: name, keyword –advanced: adds school, department, location, date of publication, relevance Exploiting the social network to search and contact individuals Creating additional links to colleagues Assembling research teams Managing requests for and distribution of biographical document

11 Facebook for scientists Titus Schleyer et al. 11 of 38 Sustainable Social Networking/Community Systems Resource Model: Where will the resources needed to maintain the community system come from? Community Model: What features, structures, and processes are needed maintain individual involvement and activity? Impact Model: How do the specific activities which individuals engage in lead to desirable outcomes?

12 Facebook for scientists Titus Schleyer et al. 12 of 38 Open Issues & Next Steps Access control – What are the features of access control schemes that support sharing of information while allowing individuals to maintain control of their work and identity? Interoperability – What standards should be applied and/or developed to allow for interoperability between research- oriented social networking systems? Profile design – What are the characteristics of profiles that are both maintainable and promote research collaboration initiation? Integration of resource, administrative & social networking systems – What are the high-impact points where social information, process support, and resource information can be brought together?

14 Facebook for scientists Titus Schleyer et al. 14 of 38 Ideation and concept validation

15 Facebook for scientists Titus Schleyer et al. 15 of 38 DV: Search

16 Facebook for scientists Titus Schleyer et al. 16 of 38 DV: Individual profile

17 Facebook for scientists Titus Schleyer et al. 17 of 38 DV: My colleagues

18 Facebook for scientists Titus Schleyer et al. 18 of 38 Barriers to the implementation of Digital|Vita Well-connected researchers will outperform system – most of the time. Collaboration-seeking methods evolve with scientist’s career. DV economizes on many tasks, but adds others. The desire for “publicness” differs among scientists. … and many other problems associated with social networks (e.g. free ridership, differential incentives, etc.).
