Why worldwidescience org

Why WorldWideScience.org?

There is a need to find national scientific and technical information quickly and easily, but information is dispersed across thousands of web sites (“Surface Web”) in addition to being found within databases or portals (“Deep Web”).


Surface web vs deep web 2005

Surface Web vs Deep Web2005

  • Size: Estimated to be 5 to 500 times larger (BrightPlanet)

  • Dynamically generated content that lives inside databases

  • High-quality, managed, subject-specific content

  • Growing faster than surface web (BrightPlanet)

  • Size: Estimated to be 8+ billion (Google) to 45 billion (About.com) web pages

  • Static, crawlable web pages

  • Large amounts of unfiltered information

  • Limited to what is easily found by search engines


National science portals collaboration and coordination

National Science Portals Collaboration and Coordination

2004 Vascoda (Germany) and Science.gov (US) and KISTI (Korea) Discussions and Meetings

2005 and 2006 IFLA Norway Korea – Ad Hoc Meetings of National Science Portals (hosted by GIOPS)

June 2006 ICSTI Meeting Washington DC

Frierson - “National Science Portals: New Potential Partnerships for Global Discovery”

Warnick - “Science.world” Portal

ICSTI Science Portals Forum Proposed


Icsti science portals forum proposal

ICSTI Science Portals Forum Proposal

Organize and host 2 meetings

Create a summary matrix comparing national and international science portals to identify key characteristics and issues

Mobilize a proof of concept trial for a “cross science” portals search

Develop a plan of action

ICSTI Immediately funded 1 and 2


1 organize and host 2 meetings

1. Organize and host 2 meetings

January 2007 - ICSTI winter meeting in London

June 2007 - ICSTI meeting Nancy

2. Create a summary matrix comparing national and international science portals to identify key characteristics and issues

What is a portal?

How to define scope and coverage

Intellectual property rights management

Search techniques- browse taxonomies, site searching, deep web, metadata, data, publications

Languages


Us doe bl agreement

US DOE/BL Agreement

In January 2007 the US Department of Energy and the British Library agreed to partner to develop a global science gateway to accelerate scientific discovery


Worldwidescience org

WorldWideScience.org

  • June 2007 demonstration

  • 12 databases/10 countries

  • Invited others to join in developing

    governance documents-Feb 2008


How does the worldwide science gateway work

How Does the Worldwide Science Gateway work?

The approach is to capitalize on existing “federated search” technology to search collections of science information distributed across the globe.

This enables much-needed access to both prominent as well as smaller, less well-known sources of highly valuable science.

Users simply submit a single query into the WorldWideScience.org search engine to launch simultaneous searching of the databases and portals of participating nations.

Results are returned in relevance-ranked order.
