EuroCRIS meeting, Moscow (Rusland), 9 October 2008

Royal netherlands academy of arts and sciences

Academy's mission:

To ensure the quality of scientific research in the Netherlands

to promote the open accessibility of scientific information

Mission of my Department:

national focal point of research information

Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences

National Academic Research and Collaborations Information System


  • Academic Information Domain - AID

  • Situation in the Netherlands: CRIS, OAR and e-Data

  • Dutch scientific portal NARCIS

  • Digital Author Identifier – DAI

  • Joining CRIS, OAR and e-data: problems

  • The future

  • Conclusions

Academic information domain cris and repositories
Academic Information Domain:CRIS and repositories

  • CRIS: Research Descriptions, Researchers, Institutions

  • Repositories

  • Full-text publications

  • E-Research: datasets

Schema of the academic information domain

Personnel Information Domain

Financial Information Domain




Academic Information Domain



Schema of the Academic Information Domain

Based on:

Current research information system


Current Research Information System

  • Every university and the Academy has it’s own CRIS: Metis


  • Researchers: expertise, research data and workplaces

  • Research Institutions: Profiles and Addresses

  • Research Programmes and Projects

  • Bibliographical information on research results, like articles

Open access repositories


Open Access Repositories

  • National DARE programme – Digital Academic Repositories

  • Better access to the results of publicly funded research in the Netherlands

  • By development of institutional repositories: universities, Academy, National Research Council, smaller research institutes

  • Coordinated by SURFFoundation

E data



  • The universities don’t have e-research repositories

  • Researchers don’t take good care of their research data

  • Keep information in their computer

  • Don’t take care of long-term preservation

  • Don’t like to share their data

  • But we do have E-DATA Institute DANS -Data Archiving and Networked Services

Dans data archiving and networked services


DANS Data Archiving and Networked Services

  • EASY – Electronic Archiving System

  • Data themselves available under the conditions specified by the depositor

  • Humanities and Social Sciences

Components of narcis
Components of NARCIS

  • Dutch Research Database – NOD: 14 academic CRISs and other research institutes

  • Central Access Point to 21 Open Access Repositories - OARs

  • Subsections: Cream of Science and Promise of Science

  • E-DATA: DANS developed OAI interface on EASY – Electronic Archiving System

Based on: SURFFoundation

Digital author identifier dai
Digital Author Identifier - DAI

  • Needed: link between Author and DAI

  • Enables integration of systems

  • Avoids name ambiguity and variants

Implementation of dai
Implementation of DAI

  • Dublin Core not sufficient

  • Introduction of (stripped) MODS in DIDL

  • Co-operation of all Dutch universities, KNAW and NWO

  • National database hosted by OCLC

  • 40,000 unique author names with DAI’s

Content of narcis
Content of NARCIS

  • OARs : Over 160,000 full-text publications (of which 20,000 doctoral e-theses)

  • DANS: More than 2,000 datasets

  • Dutch Research Database:

    • Expert database: 10,000 researchers

    • Portal of Professors and associate professors: 7,500 names

    • About 36,000 names of researchers

    • Project descriptions of current (20,000 records) and completed research projects (22,000 records)

    • About 3,200 records of university or non-university research institutes

Joining cris oar and e data problems
Joining CRIS, OAR and e-data: problems

Technical barriers are not the main point

Organizational issues


  • To assign DAI’s

  • To fill the CRISs, OARs en E-research repositories

  • To introduce new exchange formats like (stripped) MODS

The future
The Future

  • Publication lists: harvesting of the “bibliographic only records”

  • DAI makes it possible to develop tag clouds

  • Enhanced publications for the international DRIVER project -Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research

  • Metadata store (NARCIS becomes a National Repository)


  • It is possible to create a Dutch Academic Information Domain even when the systems are not connected

  • To create a Dutch AID the greatest challenges are organizational

  • Need for integration on some level: Digital Author Identifier

  • But live would be much easier with well connected and filled systems, based on CERIF!
