A Recap: What is WorldWideScience.org?

  • Progress since 2007
    • Global comprehensiveness
    • Multilingual translations
    • Multimedia search
  • New members
  • Relevance to scientific integrity
  • New strategic directions
slide4

History and Collaboration

  • WorldWideScience.org concept emanated from Science.gov model (2006)
  • Initial partnership between U.S. Department of Energy and the British Library (2007)
  • Transition to multilateral governance (WorldWideScience Alliance) and ICSTI* sponsorship (2008)
  • *International Council for Scientific and Technical Information
slide5

WorldWideScience.orgsearches the ‘deep web’

  • Where science is hundreds of times larger than the “surface web”
  • Generally not searchable by major search engines

Deep Web

slide6

Multilingual Translations

  • The world’s first “one to many” and “many to one” multilingual translations tool in science.
  • Ten languages – Arabic, Chinese, German, English, Spanish, French, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian
  • WorldWideScience.org partnering with Microsoft® Translator enables true multilingual functionality.
slide7

Access to Multimedia-basedScience & Technology

A Case Study for Enhanced Multimedia

Search & Retrieval

http://www.osti.gov/sciencecinema/

  • Partnership between OSTI and Microsoft Research.
  • Launched in February 2011; searches ~2,600 multimedia files.
  • Utilizes Microsoft Research Audio Video Indexing System (MAVIS).
  • Enables searching of digitized spoken content.
  • Users can search for precise term within video and be directed to the exact point in the video where the term was spoken.

WWS.org’s Relevance to Scientific Integrity

The intersection of science, ethics, and law is…

Scientific Integrity

Intellectual Honesty

Accuracy

Fairness

Transparency

Responsibility

slide10

WWS.org’s Relevance to Scientific Integrity

  • WWS’s 80+ databases are trusted, authoritative sources
  • As national, or nationally-sanctioned databases, they have an implicit commitment to Scientific Integrity
slide11

WWS.org’s Relevance to Scientific Integrity

  • With its global search of 80+ databases, WWS…
      • Distills and ranks the “best of the best”
      • Serving as a “multiplier” for scientific integrity
slide12

What’s next for

  • WorldWideScience.org?

The Next Frontier for WWS = “Big Data”

  • How big is “big data”?
  • Answer = 22,700,000 hits on Google
  • But “big data” has two major problems
    • It’s hard to find … and
    • It’s hard to navigate … until now.
