The Future of Research Communications and e-Scholarship

Target Areas

On this page:

As a starting point to the vision laid out in the FORCE11 Manifesto,  we seek to revise the artifacts of communication (Containers) through addressing several key target areas.  Our vision entails creating a new, enriched form of scholarly publication that enables the creation and management of relationships between knowledge, claims and data (Authoring and Mark Up). It also means the creation of a knowledge infrastructure that allows the sharing of computationally executable components, such as workflows, computer code and statistical calculations, as scientifically valid content components (Processes); and an infrastructure that allows these components to be made accessible, reviewed, discussed referenced and attributed. In this way, the content of communications about research will follow the same evolutionary path that we have seen for general web content: a move from the static to the increasingly dynamic. To do this, we have to develop best practices for depositing research data sets in repositories that enable linking to relevant documents, and that have high compliance levels driven by appropriate incentives, resources and policies (Reward Systems).


Authoring

<?php
$result = db_query("SELECT n.nid, n.title FROM {node} n JOIN ({taxonomy_index} ti, {taxonomy_term_data} ttd) ON (n.nid=ti.nid AND ti.tid=ttd.tid) WHERE ttd.name='authoring' ORDER BY nid DESC;");
foreach ($result as $record) {
echo "nid}’>{$record->title}
“;
}
?>

Processes

<?php
$result = db_query("SELECT n.nid, n.title FROM {node} n JOIN ({taxonomy_index} ti, {taxonomy_term_data} ttd) ON (n.nid=ti.nid AND ti.tid=ttd.tid) WHERE ttd.name='processes' ORDER BY nid DESC;");
foreach ($result as $record) {
echo "nid}’>{$record->title}
“;
}
?>

Markup

<?php
$result = db_query("SELECT n.nid, n.title FROM {node} n JOIN ({taxonomy_index} ti, {taxonomy_term_data} ttd) ON (n.nid=ti.nid AND ti.tid=ttd.tid) WHERE ttd.name='mark up' ORDER BY nid DESC;");
foreach ($result as $record) {
echo "nid}’>{$record->title}
“;
}
?>

Containers

<?php
$result = db_query("SELECT n.nid, n.title FROM {node} n JOIN ({taxonomy_index} ti, {taxonomy_term_data} ttd) ON (n.nid=ti.nid AND ti.tid=ttd.tid) WHERE ttd.name='containers' ORDER BY nid DESC;");
foreach ($result as $record) {
echo "nid}’>{$record->title}
“;
}
?>

Reward Systems

<?php
$result = db_query("SELECT n.nid, n.title FROM {node} n JOIN ({taxonomy_index} ti, {taxonomy_term_data} ttd) ON (n.nid=ti.nid AND ti.tid=ttd.tid) WHERE ttd.name='reward systems' ORDER BY nid DESC;");
foreach ($result as $record) {
echo "nid}’>{$record->title}
“;
}
?>
