Collect Best Practices

This is a list of questions to document best practices from established processes to collect scientific publications thanks to the use of e-infrastructures

  • Scope: identify the scope of collecting publications (infrastructure, geographical boundaries, communities)
  • What information is collected (describe the schema and collect also values for the enumerations, e.g., list of disciplines, type of publications)
  • Do you distinguish the type of publications? (e.g., conference paper vs. journals, science based on the infrastructure vs. engineering of the infrastructure)
  • Do you collect the impact factor? If so, how? (researcher add it, link to a database of impact factors e.g., http://wokinfo.com/)
  • How researchers know that they need to provide the information?
  • How researchers provide the information? (the tool they use)
  • What are the obligations for researchers? Where are they defined? How the researchers accept them?
  • When do researchers provide the data? (e.g., yearly base, as soon as they publish)
  • Limitations/difficulties of the current process
  • Success stories of the current process
  • How many publications are already collected and since when
  • How the information is used
