Moving on with publishing schema.org as JSON-LD for the sciences

  • #109773

    Hi datadiscovery@ and esip-semanticweb@ mailing lists,
    Over on the ESIP side a number of community members have been making progress on the development of a geosci.schema.org extension to schema.org which is intended to adequately describe both science Data Repositories and Datasets. This grew out of the P418 NSF EarthCube project [0] and is now being developed at [1].
    At the ESIP Winter Meeting in early January, members discussed our strategy for community growth and subsequent development efforts aimed at advancing the geosci.schema.org extension. We are very keen to involve the RDA Data Discovery community in this process and would very much value community review of the content at [1].
    We understand that the RDA Data Discovery strategy as outlined by Fotis a few months back is very much aligned with the geosci.schema.org effort so we hope progressing the issue will be mutually beneficial for both our communities.
    Right now, the most important thing is that we can initiate more sincere community review of the guidelines available at [1]. If RDA Data Discovery is able to aid in that process it would be excellent.
    Thanks
    Lewis

    Hi Lewis,
    Thanks for reaching out to the RDA Data Discovery Interest Group. We are
    aware the geosci.schema.org
    effort at the ESIP Semantic Web cluster through Douglas Fils and Beth
    Huffer. I just signed up to the cluster’s
    mailing list and am actually about to contact you.
    Last year, we organised two virtual meetings and a workshop at the RDA P12
    toward the effort “Using
    schema.org and enriched metadata to enable/boost FAIRness on research
    resources”.
    Yes, you are quite right that the objectives

    we identified from the discussions are similar to yours, although we
    aim to be discipline-agnostic.
    At the moment, we are working on a survey instrument for collecting current
    practices on schemas.
    The survey would help us to achieve the Objective #3 and partially the
    Objective #2. We are conducting
    dry run this week, will iterate the survey instrument by accommodating
    feedback from dry run next week. We
    aim to socialise the survey and invite people to participate in less then 2
    weeks.
    While we are waiting for people fill in the survey, there is no reason why
    we could not have a look of
    those extensions we have already known such as geosci.schema.org and
    bioschemas (and crosswalks as well such DCAT to schema.org). Your guidance
    documents (especially data model and repository model) provide an excellent
    start for us. Fotis will organise a virtual meeting that is about in two
    weeks time. We can discuss how we can collaborate and proceed this
    activity.
    BTW, we will have a BoF session

    about schemas and a group session at the RDA P13. Hope you and member of
    the two groups will join us.
    Kind regards,
    Ming

    Excellent Ming. In case I miss the details, can I please ask for Fotis to cross post the virtual meeting details to the esip-semanticweb@ mailing list.
    This is very positive news, thank you for writing it up.
