Orion: An open-source tool for the science of science
Feb. 9, 2020 · · Original resource · blog

Orion is an open-source tool to monitor and measure progress in science. Orion depends on a flexible data collection, enrichment, and analysis system that enables users to create and explore research databases. In more detail, researchers can choose an academic journal, conference or thematic topic and collect all the relevant documents from Microsoft Academic Graph. Along with every document, Orion retrieves its DOI, citations, publication year, publisher, title and abstract, fields of study, authors and their affiliations. This collection is enriched with metadata from other sources; we geocode institutional affiliations and infer authors’ gender with Google Places API and GenderAPI respectively. Lastly, Orion measures the research specialisation and interdisciplinarity as well as the gender diversity of countries and institutions.Orion also has a semantic search engine that enables researchers to retrieve relevant cuts of the rich and content-specific database they created. Users can query Orion with anything between one or two words (for example, gene editing) and a blogpost they read online. Orion uses modern machine learning methods to find a numerical representation of the users’ query and search for its closest matches in a high-dimensional, academic publication space. This flexibility can be powerful; researchers can query Orion with an abstract of their previous work, policymakers could use a news article or the executive the summary of a white paper.

Exploring the COVID-19 network of scientific research with SciSight
May 7, 2020 · · Original resource · blog

To help accelerate scientific discovery with visualization, last month we launched SciSight, a framework of exploratory search and visualization tools for the COVID-19 literature. The first version of SciSight supported exploring associations between biomedical concepts appearing in the literature. In preliminary user interviews, the tool was found helpful in discovery-oriented search. We now release two important updates of SciSight.

Four tools that help researchers working in collaborations to see the big picture
June 29, 2020 · · Original resource · article

Popular project-management tools for research teams include Trello and Jira, both from the company Atlassian in Sydney, Australia, as well as Asana and GitHub project boards, both in San Francisco, California. These tools are more than simple to-do lists. They help teams to see the broad view of a project, allowing users to create and complete tasks, meet deadlines, capture detail-rich notes and provide templates for common protocols. The tagging functions of these tools allow managers to assign tasks to team members. If used well, they can make teams more efficient and minimize frustrations such as forgotten tasks and duplicated work.In short, project-management tools and the managers who use them “connect the details with the high-level goals”, says Tracy Teal. As the executive director of Dryad, a non-profit repository for open data in Durham, North Carolina, she uses several such tools.

OSF: A Project Management Service Built for Research
Aug. 4, 2020 · · Original resource · article

osfr provides a (hopefully) convenient R interface to OSF (Open Science Framework, https://www.osf.io), a free service for managing research developed by the Center for Open Science (COS). osfr completed its rOpenSci peer-review earlier this year and has been available on CRAN since February. Throughout its development and since its release I’ve had numerous conversations with members of the R community about OSF (and osfr), and through these interactions a couple recurring patterns emerged. First, it seems that many R users have heard of OSF but relatively few have first-hand experience with it. Second, I’m often asked how OSF compares to GitHub and whether it would even be useful for someone who already uses GitHub to manage their research. In a future post I’ll highlight some features of osfr and demonstrate how it can help form the basis of efficient and inclusive research workflows. However, before you can extract any value from osfr, you need to be an OSF user first. And so, I wanted to take this opportunity to provide a little background about OSF, what it offers, how it differs from something like GitHub, and where it might fit into your workflow as an R/GitHub user. Before diving in, I want to acknowledge that OSF is a multi-faceted product, and includes a number of services under its umbrella, including things like pre-print servers and a research registration repository, which, while incredibly cool and noteworthy, fall outside the scope of this post, which focuses on project management.

New NIH Resource to Analyze COVID-19 Literature: The COVID-19 Portfolio Tool
April 15, 2020 · · Original resource · webpage

In the past few months, the scientific community has ramped up research in response to the SARS‑CoV‑2 pandemic; dozens of peer-reviewed articles and preprints on this topic are being added to the literature every day (Figure 1). This rapidly expanding effort has created challenges for scientists and the medical community who need to analyze thousands of scholarly articles for insights on the virus.

Supporting Open Science Data Curation, Preservation, and Access by Libraries
June 25, 2020 · · Original resource · webpage

Openness in research can lead to greater reproducibility, an accelerated pace of discovery, and decreased redundancy of effort. In addition, open research ensures equitable access to knowledge and the ability for any community to assess, interrogate, and build upon prior work. It also requires open infrastructure and distributed access; but few institutions can provide all of these services alone. Providing a trustworthy network for perpetual availability of research data is critical to ensuring reproducibility, transparency, and ongoing inquiry. Increased attention on the importance of open research and data sharing has led to a proliferation of platforms to store data, materials, etc., with limited technical integration. This can hinder data sharing, but also complicate coordination with local library expertise and services, thus hampering curation and long-term stewardship. COS and IA are working together to address these preservation and stewardship challenges by providing open, cooperative infrastructure to ensure long-term access and connection to research data, and by supporting and promoting adoption of open science practices to enhance research reproducibility as well as data sharing and reuse. In this webinar, attendees will learn about both the technical and practical aspects of this collaborative project connecting the researcher tool OSF and the preservation system of Internet Archive. We will demonstrate how researchers can improve the openness and reproducibility of their research through preregistration, and how those preregistrations are preserved with Internet Archive. We will answer questions and seek to learn your needs and use cases for how this powerful workflow can support library curation and stewardship of open research.

The Cooperation Databank

Publishing studies using standardized, machine-readable formats will enable machines to perform meta-analyses on-demand. To build a semantically-enhanced technology that embodies these functions, we developed the Cooperation Databank (CoDa) – a databank that contains 2,641 studies on human cooperation (1958-2017) conducted in 78 countries involving 356,680 participants. Experts annotated these studies for 312 variables, including the quantitative results (13, 959 effect sizes). We designed an ontology that defines and relates concepts in cooperation research and that can represent the relationships between individual study results. We have created a research platform that, based on the dataset, enables users to retrieve studies that test the relation of variables with cooperation, visualize these study results, and perform (1) metaanalyses, (2) meta-regressions, (3) estimates of publication bias, and (4) statistical power analyses for future studies. We leveraged the dataset with visualization tools that allow users to explore the ontology of concepts in cooperation research and to plot a citation network of the history of studies. CoDa offers a vision of how publishing studies in a machine-readable format can establish institutions and tools that improve scientific practices and knowledge.

Open Science since Covid-19: Open Access + Open Data

The coronavirus crisis has created different initiatives that promote access to open publications and open data, solve collaboratively and from different places, being an example of the benefits of open science. From the initial version of the Compilation on Open Science from COVID-19: Open Access + Open Data (Version I: April 3, 2020) published by Alejandro Uribe-Tirado (http://eprints.rclis.org/39864/), it seemed to us, a good practice to update this first input openly and collaboratively, using the platform: https://etherpad.wikimedia.org/p/covid19. This new version (Version II: June 3, 2020), is the result of this joint work.

Supporting Open Science Data Curation, Preservation, and Access by Libraries

Openness in research can lead to greater reproducibility, an accelerated pace of discovery, and decreased redundancy of effort. In addition, open research ensures equitable access to knowledge and the ability for any community to assess, interrogate, and build upon prior work. It also requires open infrastructure and distributed access; but few institutions can provide all of these services alone. Providing a trustworthy network for perpetual availability of research data is critical to ensuring reproducibility, transparency, and ongoing inquiry. Increased attention on the importance of open research and data sharing has led to a proliferation of platforms to store data, materials, etc., with limited technical integration. This can hinder data sharing, but also complicate coordination with local library expertise and services, thus hampering curation and long-term stewardship. For example, the open source OSF enables researchers to directly create and manage research projects and integrates with other tools researchers use (Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, etc.), but lacks the ability to archive that material locally at a researcher’s institution. Long-term stewardship and preservation requires multiple copies of data archived in different locations, and creating archives seamlessly would be ideal. COS and IA are working together to address these preservation and stewardship challenges by providing open, cooperative infrastructure to ensure long-term access and connection to research data, and by supporting and promoting adoption of open science practices to enhance research reproducibility as well as data sharing and reuse. In this webinar, attendees will learn about both the technical and practical aspects of this collaborative project connecting the researcher tool OSF and the preservation system of Internet Archive.
