why idiom project
Why IDIOM Project?
  • Necessities for integration
  • Need for common data format
  • No easy way to find all publications
  • Wealth of information contained in numerous field remains largely outside the scope of tools
  • What happens if tool you choose is not adopted or worse just disappears, for example Windows Live Academic (WLA)
  • Architecture support Event based systems
idiom key features
We are NOT building a new tagging or search system

We are building tools integrating and adding value to existing systems

We built a mashup linking to, CiteULike, Connotea allowing exchange of tags between sites and between local repositories

Repositories also link to Google Scholar (GS) and Windows Academic Live (WLA)

GS has number of cited publications.

WLA has Digital Object Identifier (DOI)

We implement a rather more powerful access control mechanism

We build heuristic tools to mine “web lists” for citations

We have an “event” based architecture (consistency model) allowing change actions to be preserved and selectively changed

Supports integrating different inconsistent views of a given document and its updates on different tagging systems

Event based system implemented by Fatih Mustacoglu

Note: WLA is no longer available now

metadata collection from web pages
Metadata Collection from web pages
  • The aim
    • Eliminate duplicate data entry in different web platforms.
    • Building richer metadata in IDIOM using base collected Digital Entities from web pages.
    • Share new Digital Entities with other tools and users in IDIOM
    • Push new collected Digital Entities to other communities using web 2.0 features
methodology for collection case cgl publications web page
Methodology for CollectionCase: CGL Publications web page
  • Collect:
    • Digital Entities in Community Grid Publication web pages.
  • Analyze:
    • Using heuristic methodology to extract metadata fields of the Digital Entities for CGL publications
  • Build:
    • RSS objects using collected Digital Entities.
    • New tags using collected Digital Entities.
  • Compare:
    • Collected Digital Entities from CGL web pages with the existing Digital Entities in IDIOM
      • If they are:
        • different: Store new Digital Entities in SRG storage.
        • same: Option to update tags and other fields.
  • Share:
    • New Digital Entities with other Tools using IDIOM
Displaying the metadata dynamically

Displaying the metadata in RSS/XML format Displaying the metadata using RSS subscription

key definitions
Key Definitions
  • Digital Entity (DE): A digital collection of metadata for a citation stored in a system database forms a primary copy of a DAR.
  • Event: A time-stamped action on a digital entity
    • Major Events:
      • Insertion or deletion of a digital entity
    • Minor Events:
      • Modifications to an existing digital entity
  • Distributed Annotation Record (DAR): Collection of metadata stored at an annotation tool.
security model
Security Model
  • Security in web 2.0 can be limited.
  • We implemented a simple but more powerful security model around local tools that wrap Web 2.0 systems.
  • We used an access-control matrix model to provide security for our information system
    • Supports multiple groups and multiple users for each Digital Entity (DE).
    • Similar to UNIX file system
      • The Unix RWX bits corresponds to Read, Write, and Execute operation for each file and directory.
    • In our system, DE correspond to the file element and folder corresponds to the directory element.
    • For each DE and folder, there are three types of access rights defined in the systems: Read, Write, and Delete.
security model ii
Security Model II
  • We have a security model that supports
    • Level of Authorization
      • Roles are defined as Super Administrator (SA) and Group Administrator (GA), User (U)
      • The system allows having more than one SA.
      • An existing SA can add other SAs to the system.
      • SA can assign any User to become GA, and remove GA from group.
      • Each group should at least one GA. GA add/remove User from group
      • User can allow other Users and groups to share their resources
    • User profile
      • Share user profile between sites.

Group Admin capabilities

  • Build integration architecture
  • We do not reinvent existing tools
  • Use existing features of tools
  • Provide tagging services
  • Provides common metadata
  • Allows to use consistent data
  • Thanks!
