  1. I An Not a Scientist I am a NumberThe Beginnings of a New Contract Between Scientist and Publisher Philip E. Bourne University of California San Diego pbourne@ucsd.edu Bourne & Fink 2008 Editorial PLoS Comp. Biol. 4(12) e1000247 Allen Press Seminar 2009

  2. My Bias • I am not an expert in scholarly communication I am a “talker” • I co-direct a large public biological database • I am an EIC of an open access journal • I co-founded a video delivery site • I am having a lot of fun in this playground, but I could do with more playmates Allen Press Seminar 2009

  3. Agenda • The Changing Landscape of a Scientist • The scientists workflow • The scientists to do list • The scientists identity crisis • The Role of Publishers in this Changing Landscape – a New Contract with Scientists Perhaps? • Support for a new workflow • Support for user level metrics and authentication • Support for new products Allen Press Seminar 2009

  4. Today’s Academic Workflow Reviews Feds Publishers Societies Blogs Community Service/Data Curation Research [Grants] Journal Article Poster Session Conference Paper

  5. The Scientists To Do List Allen Press Seminar 2009

  6. That Do List is Changing Allen Press Seminar 2009

  7. At the Same Time Scientists Have an Identity Crisis • Strive to be recognized which means: • Strive to be identified • Strive to be listened to • Strive to be read Allen Press Seminar 2009

  8. The Tools and Metrics to Judge Us are Changing To Allen Press Seminar 2009

  9. Citation Tracking Taken from www.researcherid.com Allen Press Seminar 2009

  10. A Collaboration Network Feb 13, 2009 Professional Development Series http://pubnet.gersteinlab.org/

  11. The Metrics and Emphasis By Which We Are Measured Are Changing • Citations • Awards • Grants • Teaching • Reviews • Other Community Service • Software/Data • Blog Postings Allen Press Seminar 2009

  12. The Metrics and Emphasis By Which We Are Measured Are Changing • Citations • Awards • Grants • Teaching • Reviews • Other Community Service • Software/Data • Blog Postings Allen Press Seminar 2009

  13. What Does this Have to Do with Publishers? • Publishers will need to better identify and authenticate scientists • Publishers will need to support and identify new metrics • The contract between publisher and scientist may start to change Allen Press Seminar 2009

  14. A Unique Identifier is Going to Happen • It is DOIs for people • Some scientists will resist • The winner is not clear yet: • OpenID • ResearcherID • ScopusID • CrossReg

  15. Ideally the ID will be tagged to every piece of scholarly communication Allen Press Seminar 2009

  16. How This Might Work for Authors Central authentication server validates the authors Scientist submits a paper through the JMS using an existing or newly requested ID Publisher uniquely Identifies the authors and provides author related statistics Allen Press Seminar 2009

  17. How This Might Work for Authors Represents a new contract between author and publisher Central authentication server validates the authors Scientist submits a paper through the JMS using an existing or newly requested ID Publisher uniquely Identifies the authors and provides author related statistics Allen Press Seminar 2009

  18. Authentication Service • Provides multi – level access • Provides profile information • Provides centralized CV service • Has too much information? • Is subject to attack? • Could be abused? Allen Press Seminar 2009

  19. With a Unique and Complete Identity in Cyberspace New Metrics Might Emerge Consider one crazy idea.. Allen Press Seminar 2009

  20. What If…the value of that knowledge could be weighted according to the authority of the source 20

  21. First You Have to Identify the Source http://www.researcherid.com http://openid.net What if … the value of that knowledge could be weighted according to the authority of the source

  22. How Do we Weight the Various Knowledge Sources? • Peer reviewed literature • Reviews (papers, grants, proceedings) • Blog postings • Database entries What if … the value of that knowledge could be weighted according to the authority of the source

  23. How Do we Weight the Various Knowledge Sources? • SF = (H Factor + (Grant, Manuscript Reviews/20) + (Annotations,Datasets/5) + (Wiki, Blog Entries/50)   • All these values need to be authenticated against the specified scholar – enter tokens Allen Press Seminar 2009

  24. Issues of the Scholar Factor • Might take off since scientists would want to review etc from an organization providing tokens • Some (many scientists will find the idea distasteful) • Might get more depositions to public repositories • Scientists might support community annotation more if there is a reward • The quality of annotation would improve • The notion of hubs would be enriched Allen Press Seminar 2009

  25. Tomorrows Research Contract The research product will be different The relationship between scientist and publisher will be different The publisher could be a warehouse for the workflow of scientific endeavor not just a repository for one type of end product Allen Press Seminar 2009 25

  26. Publishers as a Contractor for All Aspects of Scholarly Output Data Scientist Idea Product Experiment

  27. Tomorrows Research Contract: Evidence • Publishers hubs: • Elsevier portals • PLoS collections • Data hubs • Open Access/open review e.g. Biology Direct • NIH Roadmap requires data be accessible • New Resources: • www.researchgate.net • MetaLab (Borya Shakhnovich)
