Service Provider’s Perspective (mostly)


Perspective meets reality
Perspective Meets Reality

  • “Chaotic” systems (Google etc.) are used very frequently

  • Current models work (only) for small communities & data

  • Researchers don’t like to

    • Fill out forms

    • Enter information twice

    • Be distracted from research

    • Be evaluated


Perspective meets reality cont
Perspective Meets Reality (cont.)

  • Researchers want

    • Access to all relevant information at one place(scope, quality & completeness!)

    • Simplicity with non-research-related tasks

    • Up-to-date information

    • To be recognized

What is a CRIS?


What s the challenge
What’s the challenge?

Scope & Audience

  • Personal, institutional, national, …domain-specific, interdisc., current?

  • Are CRIS and e-Infrastructures (really) targeted at all researchers?

  • How generic can they be, howdomain-specific do they have to be to be useful?

  • Do they want to be a/the primary source for information?


What s the challenge cont
What’s the challenge? (cont.)

Content

  • Persons, organizations, projects vs. literature, data, communication, …

  • Documenting own activities vs.information about state-of-the art

  • Ensuring quality and timeliness vs.producing additional workload

  • Promoting results vs.avoiding total transparency


What s the challenge cont1
What’s the challenge? (cont.)

Integration

  • Heterogeneous information

  • Re-use of information betweenprocesses and systems

  • Consistency

  • Building aggregations suitablefor different user groups


What s the challenge cont2
What’s the challenge? (cont.)

Dissemination

  • Funding agencies require dissemination beyond research publications (e.g. policy briefs)

  • Do CRISs and e-Infrastructures support dissemination to stakeholders?


What s the challenge cont3
What’s the challenge? (cont.)

Incentives

  • What are the benefits in providing and maintaining information?

  • How can researches be motivated to share information?

  • What new services can be provided by e-Infrastructures?

  • Any other way than pressure to make researchers participate?


Conclusion
Conclusion

  • The integration of CRIS, digital libraries, e-Infrastructure etc. is not yet there (on a large scale).

  • Currently, incentives from CRIS etc. not visible to every researcher.

  • A solution might be to integrate management / documentation of and information about research:place of input = place of output

  • Many things are domain-specific!
