VT Scientific Publications Repository: VT Scientific Publications Repository Tasks Meetings & Actions


General Project Information

  • Leader: Sergio Andreozzi, EGI.eu
  • Mailing List: vt-scientific-publications-repository@mailman.egi.eu
  • Status: proposed
  • Start Date: XX/05/2012
  • End Date: 31/07/2012
  • Meetings: see dedicated page

Motivation

The ultimate goal of EGI is to support researchers in achieving faster, better and newer scientific results. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to track all the scientific publications that have been possible thanks to EGI in order to demonstrate its real impact. Tracking the scientific outputs based on EGI has been always difficult because of the geographically dispersed communities that use the infrastructure and the lack of well-defined processes and tools. The goal of this virtual team project is to mitigate this issue by setting up tools and processes that enable the accurate tracking of scientific publications via the National Grid Infrastructures (NGIs) or Virtual Organisations (VOs).

Output

The expected outputs of this project are:

  • Definition of a process for tracking scientific publications that are based on EGI (From NGIs and from VOs)
  • Definition of the information that needs to be tracked in order to identify the publications
  • Analysis of the functionalities needed for a tool to collect scientific publications
  • Implementation plan to put processes and tools in place

Tasks

  • Analyse existing tools and processes (e.g. EGI Metric Portal, OpenAire project and the EGI Compendium)
  • Define a process for tracking scientific publications that are based on EGI
  • Define the information that needs to be tracked in order to identify
  • Analyse the functionalities needed by a tool to collect scientific publications
  • Recommendations document for processes and tools
