Current Practices

NGI France

  • Scope: identify the scope of collecting publications (infrastructure, geographical boundaries, communities)

All disciplines

At least one author working in a French laboratory or organism

All infrastructures (production or research infrastructures)

  • What information is collected
    • describe the schema and collect also values for the enumerations, e.g., list of disciplines, type of publications)

The elements are : Publication type, Subject, Title, Author(s) (name, first name), Laboratory with team, address, Abstract, Fulltext language, Production date, Conference or book title, keywords...

    • describe if you distinguish between conference paper vs. journals or science based on the infrastructure vs. engineering of the infrastructure

the tool used is built to ask for discipline, type of publications and keywords and allows to search for them. There are menus to get the publications with selection criteria and order to present them. A publication may have several disciplines and keywords

  • Do you collect the impact factor? If so, how? (researcher add it, link to a database of impact factors e.g., http://wokinfo.com/)

NO

  • How do researchers know that they need to provide the information?

We advertise by all means : NGI "France Grilles" web site, "France Grilles" newsletter, letter of the director, e-mails in the lists (labs directors, users, operational and sites teams...), presentations at the grid days... and of course reminders.

  • How do researchers provide the information? (the tool they use)
  1. They have to reference (or put) their publications in a national tool build for all the research community in France - all organisms or universities. The tools is http://hal.archives-ouvertes.fr/
  2. They have to inform a functional email address or G Romier and to give the hal identifier or the title of the publication
  • How do researchers describe the use of the infrastructures in the publication? (provide guidelines)

All possibilities but we ask for an acknowledgement that is advertised on the NGI web site. In the HAL tool, a keyword is also possible to search for the publication.

  • What are the obligations for researchers? Where are they defined? How do the researchers accept them?

There are no obligations concerning the NGI. There are no obligations concerning the organisms or universities except for several.

  • When do researchers provide the data? (e.g., yearly base, as soon as they publish)

It depends on their organisms and context.

  • Limitations/difficulties of the current process

On a voluntary basis

  • Success stories of the current process

about 700 publications collected from HAL to the collection in several months. Several researchers referenced systematically their publications to put them in the collection. It is a major success and we hope to convince others soon!

  • How many publications are already collected and since when

today 9 July 2012 : 240 articles – 485 references - But all existing publications in HAL are currently not in the collection (especially concerning HEP) this is not enough to be representative of the work done on/with the help of the grid in France Grid projects exist since 2001 in France and the collection begins in 2002.

  • How the information is used

used to produce indicators to evaluate the impact of the grid and to search for information about the grid users

NGI Netherlands

Input collected by SC from a conversation with Peter Michielse, Deputy Director Policies and Strategy, BiGGrid (NL)

  • Scope: identify the scope of collecting publications (infrastructure, geographical boundaries, communities)

Researchers that use computing resources in the Netherlands

  • What information is collected (Describe the schema and collect also values for the enumerations, e.g., list of disciplines, type of publications; describe if you distinguish between conference paper vs. journals or science based on the infrastructure vs. engineering of the infrastructure)

Papers published by the research teams in the previous year

  • Do you collect the impact factor? If so, how? (researcher add it, link to a database of impact factors e.g., http://wokinfo.com/)

No

  • How do researchers know that they need to provide the information?
  1. Peter sends a general email (to about 40 researchers) around Christmas time, asking them to provide the information. Reminder is sent mid-January.
  2. Additionally, all researchers have to report on the outcomes of their research as per the agreement established when they fill a request to use the computing resources.
  • How do researchers provide the information? (the tool they use)
  1. They reply to the email.
  2. They fill the outcome report online.
  • How do researchers describe the use of the infrastructures in the publication? (provide guidelines)

They don’t in this instance. They have to fill an official resource request form before they use the resources.

  • What are the obligations for researchers? Where are they defined? How do the researchers accept them?

The researchers are required to report on the outcomes of their research, as part of their ‘contract’ with NCF (the Computer Science arm of the Dutch funding agency, NWO)

  • When do researchers provide the data? (e.g., yearly base, as soon as they publish)
  1. Yearly basis
  2. Whenever they report on the outcome of the research
  • Limitations/difficulties of the current process / Success stories of the current process

Peter says this works quite well

  • How many publications are already collected and since when

Difficult to tell - hundreds

  • How the information is used

To demonstrate the usage of grid computing.

NGI Turkey

Scope
identify the scope of collecting publications
The collection of the publications is a “measurement technique” that allows to get measurable metrics about the usage scientific results of the e-Infrastructure. NGI-TR aims to collect all scientific products of the users.
What information is collected
NGI-TR has been using a two levels mechanism for the collection of the scientific publication: The first level collection is based on the user declaration through a web interface that could be filled by any of the users. The user having a scientific publication can choose the different web forms for the publication declaration depending on the type of publication. The publications are classified as “scientific journal”, “conference proceeding”, “thesis” and “other”. The web forms allow to the collection of the following information depending on the publication type that could be submitted by the user.
  • Scientific Journal: Name of the Journal, Journal ISSN, Authors, Title, Year, Number, Section, Page
  • Conference Proceeding: Name of the conference, Date and location, Proceeding ISBN, Authors, Title, Number, Section, Page
  • Thesis: Title, Author, Class (PhD or MS), University, Faculty, Department, Year, Advisor(s) Other: Authors, Title, Year, Publication / presentation / magazine information.
Regarding NGI-TR experience, the collection of the publications depending on the user declaration is not completely sufficient method. Although the web page of the NGI provides an open and simple web form for the publication deceleration and sends regular e-mails to the user community to remind the importance of the publication declaration only less feedback could be collected through this method. NGI-TR uses the Web of Science repository provided by Web of Knowledge as the second level for the collection of the missing publications as well as for checking the declared publications by the users.
The “Advanced Search Tool” of the Web of Science gives the publication list regarding indicated keywords and time span. The following citation databases are checked for the publication search: Science Citation Index Expanded (SCI-EXPANDED) Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI) Arts & Humanities Citation Index (A&HCI) Conference Proceedings Citation Index- Science (CPCI-S) Conference Proceedings Citation Index- Social Science & Humanities (CPCI-SSH)
The achieved list is elaborated to match the authors of the publications with the e-Infrastructure users. If any of the users never uses the infrastructure, the related publication should be removed from the list. If the publication consists of any “acknowledgement” referring to directly e-Infrastructure or NGI, the publication should be kept in the list. If there is no acknowledgement in the publication, the account of the user as the author of the publication should be checked. If the account has not been used actively for a long time again the publication should be removed from the list.
Do you collect the impact factor? If so, how?
No
How do researchers know that they need to provide the information?
Regarding infrastructure user policy of NGI Turkey, all users should refer to the infrastructure in all their scientific products that are studied by means of the infrastructure and they have to provide feedback about the scientific publication to NGI via publication submission web tool or e-mail. All the users have been informed by the NGI about the user policy, acknowledgement or reference process together with acknowledgement samples at the opening of user account level and additionally NGI regularly sends e-mails to remind the process.
How do researchers provide the information? (the tool they use)
User can fill the web form or send an e-mail to inform the NGI about the publication.
How do researchers describe the use of the infrastructures in the publication? (provide guidelines)
Acknowledgement samples are on the NGI web site.
What are the obligations for researchers? Where are they defined? How do the researchers accept them?
NGI user policy document defines the user responsibilities and the user has to accept this policy by on-line for the account opening.
When do researchers provide the data? (e.g., yearly base, as soon as they publish)
As soon as they publish
Limitations/difficulties of the current process / Success stories of the current process
It is difficult to get feedback from the users.
How many publications are already collected and since when
326 since 2004
How the information is used
The infrastructure usage is reported in every six months to the funding body.

NGI-DE (Germany)

bwGRiD is a community in Germany and used as a German example here.

Scope

EGI-InSPIRE

XSEDE

Scope
identify the scope of collecting publications (infrastructure, geographical boundaries, communities)
XSEDE attempts to collect publications from all Principal Investigators (i.e., project leads) who have allocations on the various resources. XSEDE resources are managed by approximately six Service Providers across the U.S. Any researcher at most U.S.-based research institutions can request an allocation. Research from any scientific and engineering domain is eligible for allocations; the results must be publishable in the open literature (i.e., no proprietary commercial work or confidential government research).
What information is collected
At this time, we do not have a formal database for storing publication data, though such a system has been proposed in the past and may happen in the not-to-distant future. The current storage "schema" is a list of references (associated with the allocated project number) in a Microsoft Word document and attached as an appendix to the XSEDE quarterly report.
Describe if you distinguish between conference paper vs. journals or science based on the infrastructure vs. engineering of the infrastructure
We do not typically distinguish between different types of publications in our current collection process, though all types of publications are generally included. Most of the publication collection effort focuses on the publications by the scientific user community. XSEDE *does* however separately collect publications written by XSEDE-supported staff; these staff publications are typically focused on 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/)
No.
How do researchers know that they need to provide the information?
As part of the user responsibilities agreement, which all users must acknowledge and accept in the XSEDE portal, users are instructed to acknowledge XSEDE in relevant publications and report those publications to XSEDE. The most common time for a researcher to report such publications is during the allocation process, when they request a renewal of an allocation. The review panel uses publications (submitted, accepted, in progress, as well as published) as part of their evaluation. The allocation policies also state that project leads should submit a final report at the conclusion of each project (though this is not strictly enforced).; How do researchers provide the information? (the tool they use)
How do researchers provide the information? (the tool they use)
The primary tool is submission of a PDF file included as part of their allocation request. Allocation requests are accepted via XSEDE's "POPS" system.
How do researchers describe the use of the infrastructures in the publication? (provide guidelines)
That is up to the researcher. XSEDE does provide sample language that can be used to acknowledge XSEDE support at https://www.xsede.org/how-to-acknowledge-xsede
What are the obligations for researchers? Where are they defined? How do the researchers accept them?
As noted, all users must accept a user responsibilities agreement (a) when they first get their XSEDE user portal account, and (b) once per year thereafter. The user responsibilities are at: https://www.xsede.org/usage-policies
In addition, the policies for allocations further describe obligations associated with use of the resources. The policies are described at: https://www.xsede.org/web/guest/allocation-policies
When do researchers provide the data?
As noted, they typically provide this when they request renewal allocations. Allocations are usually made for 12-month periods, therefore, they provide this information annually. However, different projects renew at different times throughout the year; XSEDE makes large-scale allocations four times per year, so our primary collection frequency is quarterly.
Limitations/difficulties of the current process
The limitations of the current process include: The lack of a formal mechanism for capturing publications at the end of a project (i.e., formally collecting a "Final Report") means that we miss many publications from short-term projects, which includes many smaller projects. In addition, the lack of a robust database system for storing publication data limits the "cleanliness" of the data set (duplications inevitably exist) as well as the amount of reporting an analysis that we can do. A more challenging issue is verifying whether all of the reported publications do, in fact, acknowledge XSEDE or the source of their computational support.
Success stories of the current process
XSEDE's long history (dating back to the early days of the NSF Supercomputer Centers program) of collecting this data for renewal allocation requests means that users and reviewers recognize the importance of submitting the information. For continuing projects, we (probably) have a very high compliance rate, though this is hard to verify.
How many publications are already collected and since when
XSEDE has access to the lists of publications associated with its reports and TeraGrid reports dating back to 2005. The total number of publications in these documents is approximately 11,000. However, duplicates and other incorrect entries probably reduce that number by a small percentage.
Information is used to show the need and befit of the German grid infrastructure
The two current use are (a) for review of allocation requests by the review panel and (b) for XSEDE's reporting purposes, notably to its funding agency, the National Science Foundation.


NCAR/CISL

Scope
identify the scope of collecting publications (infrastructure, geographical boundaries, communities)
NCAR, specifically the Computational and Information Systems Laboratory (CISL) at NCAR, collects publications from users of its production HPC environment. HPC users are primarily from U.S.-based university researchers in the atmospheric and related sciences.
What information is collected, Describe if you distinguish between conference paper vs. journals or science based on the infrastructure vs. engineering of the infrastructure
We collect simply bibliographic references to the publications. We ask users to separate their publications into three different categories: dissertations/theses, peer-reviewed publications, other publications (including posters, presentations).
We are currently exploring using a system from the NCAR Library to store these collected publications. For now, the publications will be entered into this system manually by NCAR/CISL staff.
Do you collect the impact factor? If so, how? (researcher add it, link to a database of impact factors e.g., http
//wokinfo.com/)
No. However, we hope to leverage the NCAR Library's system to collect impact factor and other data in the future.
How do researchers know that they need to provide the information?
We currently conduct an annual survey of current and recent users of our production HPC environment. We are currently tightening our process for returning users and asking them for recently completed publications at the time they apply for a new allocation.
How do researchers provide the information? (the tool they use)
We use a web-based survey tool, Opinio, hosted at NCAR.
How do researchers describe the use of the infrastructures in the publication? (provide guidelines)
We provide guidance via a web page, https://www2.cisl.ucar.edu/docs/acknowledging-ncarcisl
The URL for this web page, as well as the requirement to acknowledge NCAR/CISL support, is included in their allocation award letters.
With our new procurement, we are trying several new approaches to see if it helps improve compliance and/or tracking of publications. First, we are offering users the option of *citing* their resource use, instead of including text in acknowledgments. Second, we have associated an "Archival Resource Key" or ARK with our primary resource and instructed users to include this unique string in their citations or acknowledgments. The citation option may increase compliance, particularly in cases where acknowledgments are not appropriate. Use of the ARK is designed to make web searches easier -- finding a unique string (like a DOI) is more robust than finding the many ways acknowledgments may be phrased.
Whether the use of the ARK has any benefit or effect at all -- that remains to be seen. Ask me again in a year or so.
What are the obligations for researchers? Where are they defined? How do the researchers accept them?
Our user responsibilities are defined at https://www2.cisl.ucar.edu/docs/responsibilities. However, there is no formal acceptance of these obligations.
When do researchers provide the data?
As noted we conduct a survey annually, and are now asking when they return for new project allocations. In the past, our letters asked for users to send articles upon publication, but this happened so infrequently (and we had no way to confirm or enforce this rule) that we stopped doing so.
Limitations/difficulties of the current process
Many. We have no way to verify the completeness of our collection. In addition, we have not typically verified that the publications acknowledge support for NCAR/CISL computing support.
Success stories of the current process
Difficult to say. We have been conducting the survey regularly for a number of years, and I believe (but cannot confirm) that we get a reasonably large fraction of our user's publications.
How many publications are already collected and since when
Several hundred per year, at least since FY2008.
Information is used to show the need and befit of the German grid infrastructure
Primarily, these publication counts are used as part of the NCAR/CISL annual reporting process and budget review process, both within NCAR and for presentation to the National Science Foundation (NSF), our primary funding sponsor.

APGI - Thailand (NECTEC)

The following answers are provided based on the current practice used in the National Electronics and Computer Technology Center (NECTEC), Thailand. The answers are from the organization KM auditor point of view and not particularly opted for e-infrastructures. The National Electronics and Computer Technology Center (NECTEC) is a statutory government organization under the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA), Ministry of Science and Technology. Its main responsibilities are to undertake, support and promote the development of electronics and computer technologies through research and development activities.

Scope
identify the scope of collecting publications (infrastructure, geographical boundaries, communities)
We provide central internal facility for our researchers to register and keep tracks of their records of publications as a part of their performance matrices. All scientific and engineering publications in open literature are collected. (Noted: the word “infrastructure” under this context is ambiguous)
What information is collected?
Describe the schema and collect also values for the enumerations, (e.g., list of disciplines, type of publications)
The question is not clear. However, international standard schema of publications are basic required fields ( title, authors, name of literature, volume, issue, pages, keywords, abstracts, etc.). In addition, the document declaring author contribution to the publication is required for the records if obtainable . The copy of publication is also required. All are collected in digital forms.
Describe if you distinguish between conference paper vs. journals or science based on the infrastructure vs. engineering of the infrastructure
We distinguish the type of publication between conference paper and journals with different value matrices. (Noted: the word “infrastructure” under this context is ambiguous).
Do you collect the impact factor? If so, how? (researcher add it, link to a database of impact factors (e.g., http://wokinfo.com/ )
Yes, we collect impact factor. Researchers add it when registering and auditor team will cross-check with database of impact factors to ensure the accuracy of the data.
How do researchers know that they need to provide the information?
It is a code of conduct to all employed staffs. Guidelines are also included in the new employee orientation training session and general reminders are practiced on the regular basis. Publications have value in parts for their career advancement as researchers.
How do researchers provide the information? (the tool they use)
Through the organization's intranet system called “MyPerformance”.
How do researchers describe the use of the infrastructures in the publication? (provide guidelines)
But in general, if researchers benefit from utilizing any form of supports (ie. Grant, use of facilities, …., advices, etc) that is not in their own possession, it appears in publication's acknowledgement session, references, or footnotes. (Again Noted: the word “infrastructure” under this context is ambiguous and not yet received clarification from the surveyor).
What are the obligations for researchers? Where are they defined? How do the researchers accept them?

(The questions are not clear for us.)

If, a) our researchers are obligated to report their publications into the intranet DB system? There is no written obligation into the employee contract. But the policy and career development are motivation for our researchers to keep record of their publications and all their other research outputs.
If, b) (following from previous line of question) the researchers are obligated to acknowledge supports/ use of resource, it is either defined by the terms of supporting condition/resource provision if exist, or a moral obligation in the professional field.
When do researchers provide the data? (eg., yearly base, as soon as they publish?)
ASAP, within the published year of the publication.
Limitations/ difficulties of the current process
The current process requires audition for information accuracy.
Success stories of the current process
The process successfully serves its objective as a central system to keep record of researchers' publications. It also serves as a knowledge repository which can be accessed by all researchers of the organization.
How many publications are already collected and since when?
Over 2,500 records since 2009.
How the information is used?
The information is used to evaluate the individual performance of researchers (HR dimension) and the collective performance of organization (Strategy and Planning dimension).


APGI – Singapore (University of Singapore)

Scope
identify the scope of collecting publications (infrastructure, geographical boundaries, communities)
Our libraries in NUS collects journal issues in print issues, but I don't think they collect online versions. They are all accessible via the Internet.
What information is collected
Describe the schema and collect also values for the enumerations, (e.g., list of disciplines, type of publications)
Different disciplines have different templates. Our national university is a full comprehensive university and the current schema is being debated and problems that some disciplines do not fit in current template are being resolved.
Describe if you distinguish between conference paper vs. journals or science based on the infrastructure vs. engineering of the infrastructure
Fields are present to distinguish the type of publication.
Do you collect the impact factor? If so, how? (researcher add it, link to a database of impact factors (e.g., http://wokinfo.com/ )
Our university uses the Web of Science and the JCI science citation index and the data from these sources.
How do researchers know that they need to provide the information?
The University's Deputy President's Office of Research and does the Technology (DPRT) processing and computation of impact factors.
How do researchers provide the information? (the tool they use)
Researchers are not allowed to invent their own impact factors, based on their collection or calculation. They just cite the IF based on the current prevailing IFs being disseminated.
How do researchers describe the use of the infrastructures in the publication? (provide guidelines)
There is no policy that mandates researchers must acknowledge the use of infrastructures in their research publications.
What are the obligations for researchers?Where are they defined?How do the researchers accept them?
No obligations. Sometimes they even forget to put the name of institutions they are affiliated to. Only research grants may require the recipients to insert an acknowledgement of the source of their funding used to finance the research, as part of their grant reporting framework.
When do researchers provide the data? (eg., yearly base, as soon as they publish?)
They submit their publication data to an online e-Portfolio system of the university which generates multiple redundant copies of the same paper by different authors from different departments who are collaborating on the paper as co-authors. No system to de-duplicate the same paper with slightly different entry information and layout.
We are proposing the university should use a standard procedure to associate authors with the papers they have published publicly using public or publicly accessible databases such as that of the journal publisher.
Limitations/ difficulties of the current process
Duplicate entries. In accurate data and lack of checking, authentication and verification
Success stories of the current process
None.
How many publications are already collected and since when?
Tens of thousands of staff publications and student publications

in terms of database entries.

How the information is used?
This is used for annual appraisal, promotions and tenure, and university awards


APGI – Australia (University of Melbourne)

Scope
identify the scope of collecting publications (infrastructure, geographical boundaries, communities)
CoEPP collects its publications from the different researchers associated with the project and Centre for their annual report and reporting to their funding body. The University of Melbourne annually collects data on all research publications published by staff and students of the University. As part of the annual Federal Government Higher Education Research Data Collection (HERDC) the University is required to report on research publications published within a calendar year. The collection of accurate publications data is important because:
  • Federally used to help calculate central performance-based funding allocations
  • It helps to build reliable staff research and scholarship profiles, facilitating collaboration via resources such as our Find an Expert
  • It enables staff to maintain a dynamic bibliography of their work within Themis
  • Informs the University’s annual Research Report and Research Performance book
What information is collected
Describe the schema and collect also values for the enumerations, (e.g., list of disciplines, type of publications)
Bibliographic information is collected via harvesting from Thompson Web of Science and downloaded in to our knowledge management system or the provision of a PDF by the researcher as well as field of research and socio economic information. [same as NGI Turkey] Fields of Research (FOR) Codes are used to identify the general topic area in which the research was carried out and Socio-Economic Objective (SEO) Codes are used to identify the principal area where the research leading to the publication will benefit the nation.
Describe if you distinguish between conference paper vs. journals or 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/ )
The impact factor of a publication is collected via Publication Indexes, such as Thomson Reuters and Scopus which are external publication data sources that store information relevant to scholarly publications. External Publication identifiers will be used to feed data into other applications the University uses including Melbourne Research Windows. Citation counts can also be obtained using the publication indexes entered.
How do researchers know that they need to provide the information?
They are encouraged to keep the research profiles up to date thereby ensuring that the publications are all available on the websites and databse.
How do researchers provide the information? (the tool they use)
The can enter the information via an online form located in Themis and attach the PDF or provide bibliographic details and the information is harvested from Thompsons.
How do researchers describe the use of the infrastructures in the publication? (provide guidelines) don’t know
What are the obligations for researchers? Where are they defined? How do the researchers accept them?
When do researchers provide the data? (eg., yearly base, as soon as they publish?)
As soon as publications are published is preferable but alternatively they are required to at least provide the data quarterly.
Limitations/ difficulties of the current process
It is difficult to get information from researchers.
Success stories of the current process
