Webinar: Discovering Research Data Links via GESIS LOD Research Graph

28 Jan 2018

Dear all,
We will have a new webinar by Dr. Benjamin Zapilko from GESIS on 27
February 2018, 13:00 CET / 12:00 UTC / 23:00 AEDT

In this webinar, Dr. Ben Zapilko from GESIS will talk about a new way to
link GESIS data records to the global network of scholarly works. In 2017,
GESIS started a new project for creating graphs of information available in
the German open scholarly platforms. The aim was to connect research
datasets to publications and grants both at the national and international
In this project, GESIS has adopted two RDA outcomes: the RD-Switchboard
code from the DDRI WG and DLI services from
the Scholix WG. The result of this work will be a large-scale Research Graph
cluster that connects GESIS research data
(metadata) records to ORCID profiles, Australian National Data Service
(ANDS) records, NIH grants, NCI datasets in Australia, SpringerNature
SciGraph records and many more international data repositories. This
project was seed-funded by the RDA Europe Collaborative scheme.
Ben will present the current stage of this project, and show how
researchers in the social sciences can explore research information of
their domain in order to identify connections between grants, research data
and publications. Additionally, researchers/employees of libraries,
archives and infrastructure organisations will benefit from the technical
implementations of the Switchboard software and the new links to GESIS data
created using the Research Graph Augment API.
