JISC Open BIbliography 2

This is the introduction to the JISC Open Bibliography 2 project; this page lists all other relevant project resources.

About the project

After the success of the first JISC Open Bibliography project, we have secured further funding from JISC for another year of development, which will be carried out in partnership with Cambridge University Library.

In this project we will show how Open Bibliography enables scholarship; we will show our community what we are missing if we do not commit to Open Bibliography; we will show that Open Bibliography is a fundamental requirement of a community committed to discovery and dissemination of ideas.

Our aim is to utilise the large collections we have received in the previous year, and the goodwill of the providers of those collections, to demonstrate how the content of such collections are of use to the individual or small group. This will enable people to realise what can be achieved with the data we now have access to, and prove the value of its openness.

Examples of functional aims

  • Which papers have been recently withdrawn, and which other papers in the OA Subset cite these – and graph the result.
  • What has the blogosphere said about paper X ? [trawl all blogs for DOI and highlight any papers with blogosphere though Javascript]. Search by volume of discussion.
  • Which papers in BMC have images / tables – use PMC to retrieve articles.
  • Which papers have figures on FigShare – and link to those figures.
  • Where are datasets relevant to an article – e.g. via Dryad.
  • Linking FROM and TO openbiblio records – e.g. from tables / images in BMC / figshare to link back to the openbiblio tools, and subsequently the other linked resources.
