1 RSP Summer School14-16 September 2009 UK Institutional Repository Search: a collaborative project to showcase UK research output through advanced discovery and retrieval facilities Sophia Jones

2 RSP Summer School14-16 September 2009 Project composition

3 RSP Summer School14-16 September 2009 Knowledge Challenge for UK Research Vast and constantly expanding range of bibliographic information stores Open access repository movement – research / e-learning assets Uncharted supplementary data Unconnected islands of discovery and innovation

4 RSP Summer School14-16 September 2009 Discovery to Innovation – the researcher Initial literature review can take months Information overload Qualitative research poorly supported Cant expose relationships between information Managing discovery relationships within a research team

5 RSP Summer School14-16 September 2009 UK IRS: Aims Identify, develop and support high-value research knowledge communities within search and discovery process Encourage the embedding of repository search in familiar and day-to- day research desktop environments Showcase the collective and collaborative UK Research output and perspectives in Institutional Repositories Deliver free targeted search and discovery facilities derived from UK HEI Institutional Repositories to support researchers and academics Provide improved services to individuals including directed browse and dynamic navigation Provide a richer more meaningful contextual search facility including full-text searching, text mining and other techniques

6 RSP Summer School14-16 September 2009 Solution: Conceptual Search Text mining based search Searches over 95 repositories and over 500K artefacts

7 RSP Summer School14-16 September 2009 Development Paths Simple metadata search Full-text indexing of documents Text-mining full-text documents Automatic subject classification, clustering of results, browsing/visualisation

8 RSP Summer School14-16 September 2009 What the researcher wants… Feedback from users Local, national, international demonstrations wish list, e.g. - narrow down and make conceptual links to what a researcher needs - relationships across content based on search criteria - automatic browsing lists and suggested or related readings. - personalise and see content results from another dimension.

9 RSP Summer School14-16 September 2009 Focussed and relevant search and discovery Conceptual Search: Uses Autonomy IDOL software to drive contextually related content, people and communities into virtual learning & research spaces Text Mining Search: Uses TerMine technology by NaCTeM, to find relevant results by clicking on the most important concepts and groups similar documents conceptually

10 RSP Summer School14-16 September 2009 Learning points Quality of metadata Talk to your audience Consider approaches that work for your goals

11 RSP Summer School14-16 September 2009 Searching examples: Conceptual Search What are local issues? The problem of the local review of research Details of article Option to add related terms

12 RSP Summer School14-16 September 2009 Searching examples: Conceptual Search (cont. – Related Search) Original article: What are local issues? The problem of the local review of research Related articles Recently selected articles

13 RSP Summer School14-16 September 2009 Searching examples: Conceptual Search (cont.) 3D Interactive view of the search items

14 RSP Summer School14-16 September 2009 Searching examples: Text mining search Results: of 14 found for ""ethical research"". (0.025 seconds)

15 RSP Summer School14-16 September 2009 Searching examples: Text mining search (cont.) Results: of found for "ethical research". (0.047 seconds)

16 RSP Summer School14-16 September 2009 Searching examples: Text mining search (cont.) Clusters

17 RSP Summer School14-16 September 2009 Searching examples: Text mining search (cont.) Cluster map!

18 RSP Summer School14-16 September 2009 Searching examples: Text mining search (cont. – full details of doc) Similar documents Terms representative of the document

19 RSP Summer School14-16 September 2009 Searching examples: Text mining search (cont. – citation purpose) Related documents to citation purpose

20 RSP Summer School14-16 September 2009 Benefits Surpassing the one size fits all problem Providing a more relevant search facility Promoting own repository within research community Encouraging content growth by highlighting global audience

21 RSP Summer School14-16 September 2009

22 RSP Summer School14-16 September 2009 UK IRS Summary and Results: Innovation and Discovery Discovery to innovation for the researcher: Exposing relationships between information Making browsing easy and more relevant Managing information Discovering previously unchartered supplementary data

23 RSP Summer School14-16 September Thank you
