NISO Committee AX (OpenURL)


OpenURL framework fundamental goodies

  • open reference linking

  • gives users the freedom to decide where to obtain reference links from


OpenURL framework fundamental goodies

  • open reference linking

  • gives users the freedom to decide where to obtain reference links from

  • OpenURL framework:

  • collaborative model:

    • information providers introduce a hook;

    • hook is URL;

    • URL is there to deliver metadata and identifiers to service component.

  • service component:

    • target of the URL;

    • provides services when user clicks URL;

    • user chooses service component.

  • OpenURL: specification for the URL


OpenURLspecs fundamental goodies

  • Facilitates the delivery of metadata about a referenced item and about the context in which the item is referenced to a service component as a result of an explicit request

  • by value delivery: metadata is on the OpenURL

  • by reference delivery: information is delivered on the OpenURL that allows the service component to fetch (additional) metadata


OpenURLspecs fundamental goodies

  • Facilitates the delivery of metadata about a referenced item and about the context in which the item is referenced to a service component as a result of an explicit request

  • by value delivery: metadata is on the OpenURL

  • by reference delivery: information is delivered on the OpenURL that allows the service component to fetch (additional) metadata

  • Service component will provide contextualizedservices relating to the referenceditem based on the delivered metadata

  • concrete behaviour/actions of the service component is not specified


Motivation for Bison-Futé

Bison-Futé is about taking a step backwards in order to see the picture more clearly.

looking at contextual provision of services relating to referenced items without making assumptions that have been made in OpenURL framework & OpenURL specs

not l’art pour l’art: using the newly gained perspective to inform the OpenURL standardization process


Motivation for Bison-Futé

OpenURL framework

choices/assumptions have been made

OpenURL


Motivation for Bison-Futé

OpenURL framework

  • choices/assumptions have been made

  • referenced item is a scholarly work

  • the terminology of the framework is specific for scholarly information environment

  • the OpenURL specs are focused on scholarly environment

OpenURL


Motivation for Bison-Futé

OpenURL framework

  • choices/assumptions have been made

  • 2 contextual entities

  • the “source” (service providing OpenURL)

  • service component

OpenURL


Motivation for Bison-Futé

OpenURL framework

  • choices/assumptions have been made

  • way to reference the item:

  • metadata-zone

  • global-identifier-zone

  • local-identifier-zone

OpenURL


Motivation for Bison-Futé

OpenURL framework

  • choices/assumptions have been made

  • way to reference the 2 contextual entities:

  • origin-description

  • BASE-URL

  • local-identifier-zone

OpenURL


Motivation for Bison-Futé

OpenURL framework

  • choices/assumptions have been made

  • way to encode as URL

  • name=value pairs

  • target at service component

------------

Motivation for Bison-Futé

OpenURL framework

  • choices/assumptions have been made:

  • scholarly domain

  • within that domain:

    • the entities involved

    • the way to reference entities

    • the way to encode references to entities on a URL

OpenURL


Remember

it is all about

delivery of metadata

of the referenced item and

of contextual entities


Bison-Futé: ContextObject

  • OpenURL makes choices regarding the entities that must be involved in the contextual provision of services

  • local-identifier-zone has been (ab)used for provision of contextual information that OpenURL does not explicitely support (service types)


Bison-Futé: ContextObject

  • OpenURL makes choices regarding the entities that must be involved in the contextual provision of services

  • private-identifier-zone has been (ab)used for provision of contextual information that OpenURL does not explicitely support (service types)

  • => ContextObject

  • the ContextObject is a construct that -- we think -- contains all entities that are required for the contextual provision of services


entity

resolver

requester

serviceType

referring

entity

referrer

referent

ContextObject


Bison-Futé: descriptor

  • OpenURL makes choices regarding the way to reference the entities that are involved in the contextual provision of services

  • The way in which these references are made is different from entity to entity

  • local-identifier-zone has been used to reference entities in ways not supported by OpenURL


Bison-Futé: descriptor

  • OpenURL makes choices regarding the way to reference the entities that are involved in the contextual provision of services

  • The way in which these references are made is different from entity to entity

  • private-identifier-zone has been used to reference entities in ways not supported by OpenURL

  • => descriptor

  • descriptor is a uniform construct tailored for referencing all entities involved in the contextual provision of services (we think)

  • descriptor serves the purpose of delivering identifiers and metadata of entities

  • descriptor builds on the “by value” and “by reference” concept of OpenURL


descriptor

entity

resolver

requester

serviceType

referring

entity

referrer

referent

ContextObject


Bison-Futé: descriptor

  • A descriptor describes an entity by means of:

  • entity-id

  • metadata-id

  • metadata-description

  • metadata-description-pointer

  • private-identifier


Bison-Futé: descriptor -- entity-id

  • A descriptor describes an entity by means of:

  • entity-id

    • NID & identifier that is unique in namespace identified by NID

    • doi & 10.1074/jbc.M004545200

  • serves 2 purposes:

    • delivery of identifier = first class citizen

    • identifier can be a key to access metadata (think CrossRef)

    • by value & by reference


Bison-Futé: descriptor -- metadata-id

  • A descriptor describes an entity by means of:

  • metadata-id

    • NID & identifier that is unique in namespace identified by NID

    • pmid & 10942764

  • serves 2 purposes:

    • delivery of identifier of metadata description = first class citizen

    • identifier can be a key to access metadata (think PubMed)

    • by value & by reference


Bison-Futé: descriptor -- metadata-description

  • A descriptor describes an entity by means of:

  • metadata-description

    • MFTID & metadata description rendered according to the format identified by MFTID

    • PubMedSGML & record formated according to PubMedSGML

  • serves purpose:

    • delivery of metadata description

    • by value


Bison-Futé: descriptor -- metadata-description-pointer

  • A descriptor describes an entity by means of:

  • metadata-description-pointer

    • MFTID & explicit pointer to metadata description rendered according to the format identified by MFTID

    • PubMedSGML & URL pointing at record formated according to PubMedSGML

  • serves purpose:

    • delivery of metadata description

    • by reference


Bison-Futé: descriptor

  • A descriptor delivers metadata by value & by reference:

  • by value:

    • entity-id

    • metadata-id

    • metadata-description

  • by reference:

    • no intelligence required to get to metadata

      • metadata-description-pointer

    • intelligence required to get to metadata:

      • entity-id

      • metadata-id

OpenURL standardization & Bison-Futé

  • use Bison-Futé for its concepts only, as inspiration for the standardization process

  • get real ! Byelimination: use only those parts of Bison-Futé that are essential for making fast progress in the core area (open reference linking)

  • Within the core area apply a phased approach

  • 1st: encoding scheme for simple OpenURL’s (meaning of simple to be defined)

  • 2nd: encoding scheme for complex OpenURL’s (meaning of complex to be defined)


Example of procedure

  • Simple OpenURL’s:

  • only 1 referent

  • only use certain entities of ContextObject

  • only use certain parts of descriptors to describe entities

  • only certain namespaces

  • only certain metadataformats


Example of procedure

ContextObjectdescriptor

y/n# id mid mdesc mdescpt mpid

referent

resolver

referrer

referring e

requester

serviceType


Example of procedure

ContextObjectdescriptor

y/n# id mid mdesc mdescpt mpid

referent y 1

resolver y 1

referrer y 1

referring e y 1

requester n 0

serviceType y 1


Example of procedure

ContextObjectdescriptor

y/n# id mid mdesc mdescpt mpid

referent y 1 y y y y y

resolver y 1 y -- -- -- --

referrer y 1 y -- -- -- --

referring e y 1 y -- -- -- --

requester n 0 -- -- -- -- --

serviceType y 1 y -- -- -- --


OpenURL ContextObjectdescriptor

y/n# id mid mdesc mdescpt mpid

referent y + ( same ) y *-- y

resolver y 1 y -- -- -- --

referrer y 1 y -- -- -- --

referring e n0 ---- -- -- --

requester n 0 -- -- -- -- --

serviceType n 0 -- -- -- -- --

Bison-Futé’s ContextObjectdescriptor

OpenURL y/n# id mid mdesc mdescpt mpid

referent y 1 y y y y y

resolver y 1 y -- -- -- --

referrer y 1 y -- -- -- --

referring e y 1 y -- -- -- --

requester y 1y -- -- -- --

serviceType y + y -- -- -- --


Example of procedure

  • Determine:

  • regarding id, mid:

    • global namespaces that are crucial for open reference linking (referent, resolver, ….)

      • define;

      • accord NIDs.

    • allow local namespaces? how to distinguish from globals?
