“ORCID makes its code available under an open source license, and will post an annual public data file under a CCO waiver for free download.” (Source: http://about.orcid.org/about/what-is-orcid.)
- ORCID provides annual CC0 dump.
- To try the open API point your queries to pub.orcid.org ! (Documentation says something else)
- Query biographies example:
- curl -H ‘Accept: application/orcid+xml’ http://pub.orcid.org/search/orcid-bio?q=pohl
- Retrieve bio example: curl -H “Accept: application/orcid+json” “http://pub.orcid.org/0000-0001-9083-7442/orcid-bio”
- See http://support.orcid.org/forums/175591-general/suggestions/3278073-release-orcid-code-as-open-source-now for arguments why ORCID hasn’t yet released the code but will do in the future.
Linked Open Data
- “Future versions of the ORCID API may support additional formats, for example application/rdf+xml.” (Source: http://de.slideshare.net/ORCIDSlides/orcid-depositupdate-api-phase-1, slide 10)
(Much information was taken from this twitter conversation.)
- Karen: How can this be intregrated with BibServer
- Jim: Could OKF pick up and post periodic dumps of ORCID data? And support a BibServer over those dumps?
See Karen’s blog post on the topic: http://kcoyle.blogspot.de/2012/10/copyright-victories-part-ii.html.
- Judge supports digitization for indexing as a fair use.
- No decision on orphan works
- Support for “just in case” digitization to serve sight impaired users
- Support for digitization for preservation
OKFN labs for cultural activities
- Background: Restructuring of OKF
- Projects and tools are now pulled into OKFN labs, which will mainly focus on government and financial data: http://okfnlabs.org/
- Rather than “orphan” the other projects, there is now another lab in development for those, including Bibserver.
- Example projects/code and blog posts that woul find their place at this “open culture lab”:
- Working with DBPedia extracting data to put into timeline, see here.
- Querying DBpedia for Public Domain Authors: http://www.uebertext.org/2012/10/querying-dbpedia-to-find-public-domain.html
- Joris, Sam and Etienne Posthumus working on this. Please propose projects to Joris and Sam and they can help.
- Suggest: organize “code days” for bibliographic data
W3C working group on biblio extension to schema.org
- See http://www.w3.org/community/schemabibex/
- Karen is group member
- Currently the group is gathering use cases at http://www.w3.org/community/schemabibex/wiki/Use_Cases and thinking about additional data elements.
Journal Article Tag Suite (JATS) Standard
- New NISO standard for journal metadata (very heavy)
- Based on pubMed article schema
- May merge some developer lists into one, which are now scattered. openbiblio-dev could be included in this.
- We talked for a short time about ResourceSync effort to provide standard for syncing web resources: http://www.niso.org/workrooms/resourcesync/
- Adrian will try to find time for a seperate post on ORCID
