1 Social bookmarking EMBL Centre for Computational Biology 30 th of May, 2006 Michael Kuhn

2 briefly: my motivation

3 one year of social bookmarking

4 before: over 100 bookmarks in browser

5 now: only 11 (my toolbar)

6 over 300 links in del.icio.us, organized with tags

7 concepts examples science 2.0 references

8 remember the Yahoo! catalog?

10 bookmarks: a similar hierarchy

12 taxonomy

15 folks

16 tags

17 a tag is a keyword you assign intuitively

18 HierarchyTags Eukaryota Metazoa Chordata Craniata Vertebrata Euteleostomi Mammalia … Hominidae Homo homo primate eukaryote vertebrate mammal

19 Comparison HierarchyTags fixed framework, created beforehand dynamic and created on the spot logical descriptionintuitive description only one categorycan have many tags filing is slowtagging is fast

25 social bookmarking in academia

26 keywords are already there!

29 keywords are not in PubMed

30 instead: Medical Subject Headings (MeSH terms)

47 CiteULike Nature Publishing Groupone-man project links and papers/booksmainly papers/books partially imports bibliographic data fully imports bibliographic data can keep posts private (optional: until date) all posts are public API to access the data from other tools no API yet supports tag intersections no tag intersections, but can store PDFs

48 there are many social bookmarking sites

54 summary of this section

55 Social bookmarking: … helps you to manage and organize your references … lets you follow the references of people you know or trust … generates recommendations of interesting references for you (but don’t expect wonders yet)

56 concepts examples science 2.0 references

57 you gain: a fast way to store and retrieve information

58 you get: assistance in finding new papers

59 you profit: from the insight of other people

60 you give: your bibliography (your selection of publicly available information)

61 conflict between advancing knowledge and advancing your career

62 possible disadvantage: another scientist discovers an article earlier (or at all)

63 possible disadvantage: someone might deduce what you are working on

64 you have to decide if you want to contribute

65 (but I think it is worth it)

66 (also, you can keep your bookmarks private for some time in Connotea)

67 take-home message

68 With social bookmarking … … you can better keep track of your links and references … you implicitly share knowledge with other scientists

69 Next Tuesday: Stop ing huge files: How to jointly edit manuscripts and share data

70 concepts examples science 2.0 references
