Types and Levels of Collaboration in Interdisciplinary Research in the Sciences
TLDR
This analysis led to the conclusion search has been conducted by information scientists on that collaboration contributed significantly to the degree how scientists used information in interdisciplinary reof interdisciplinarity in some disciplines and not in othsearch.
Converting a controlled vocabulary into an ontology: the case of GEM
TLDR
The theoretical and methodological framework in this paper serves as the rationale and guideline for converting the GEM controlled vocabulary into an ontology, and the major difference between the two models lies in the values added through deeper semantics in describing digital objects, both conceptually and relationally.
Web Indexing with Meta Fields: A Survey of Web Objects in Polymer Chemistry
TLDR
The intent of this survey was to investigate the current use of meta fields in representing Web objects in polymer chemistry, and to provide firsthand data for implementing metadata embedding and scheme expansion in the next phase of the digital library development.
A capability maturity model for scientific data management: Evidence from the literature
TLDR
A capability maturity model (CMM) is proposed for scientific data management (SDM) practices, with the goal of supporting assessment and improvement of these practices.
The Central Role of Metadata in a Science Data Literacy Course
TLDR
An NSF-funded project at the Syracuse University School of Information Studies examined this changing environment and directed specific attention to digital data management practices and metadata proved to have a central role in how scientists operate in the e-science information environment.
Untangling data sharing and reuse in social sciences
TLDR
This panel aims to provide an overview of the current state of social science data reuse and sharing, and proposes a practical agenda to develop alternative incentives for individual researchers, and potential ways in which data sharing and reuse can be improved, coordinated, and encouraged among social scientists.
Ontological representation of learning objects: building interoperable vocabulary and structures
TLDR
An analysis of the types of components and terms used in these objects reveals that most terms fell into the form and subject categories few pedagogical terms were used, and strategies and methods in ontology development and implementation are discussed.
The impact of internet resources on scholarly communication: A citation analysis
TLDR
The paper discusses the need for developing a guideline system to evaluate Web resources regarding their authority and quality that lies in the core of credibility of Web information and reports a quantitative analysis of the use of Internet resources in journal articles.
Exploring the Willingness of Scholars to Accept Open Access: A Grounded Theory Approach
This article aims to explore what factors increase or decrease scholars' willingness to publish and use articles in open-access journals and discusses how these factors are related to one another.
Functional and Architectural Requirements for Metadata: Supporting Discovery and Management of Scientific Data
TLDR
System requirements that are essential for metadata supporting the discovery and management of scientific data, and a base-model with three chief principles: principle of least effort, infrastructure service, and portability are explored.
