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












Metis (university)







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!
