Are Your University’s Researchers Discoverable?

DSpace news - ოთხ, 19/08/2020 - 18:33

As the world awaits more information about COVID-19 and the SARS-CoV-2 virus, we look to biomedical research to deliver information, treatments, and an eventual vaccine.

Lately, research processes are accelerating, and researchers are collaborating, comparing results, and working together more than ever. To collaborate effectively, researchers need to find each other quickly, but that can be hit or miss unless researchers are well-known or actively curate their online presence.

How easy would it be to find a biomedical researcher at your university or research institution? Organizations with VIVO sites provide a valuable service for promoting research. VIVO’s public profiles help researchers find each other, using data from universities’ identity management, grants, and faculty systems.

By implementing VIVO, organizations effectively assert the researcher’s affiliation by creating their profile on their behalf. Ideally, their profiles list their preprints and papers with links to open access versions. The profile can show active funded projects as well as history of their research. Links to the researcher’s co-authors, their co-investigators, their departmental colleagues, and other cohorts enables viewers to browse and understand connections and collaborations. VIVO can provide all these functions, and it’s customizable to the needs of each institution.

Making current research interests, protocols, and data files accessible will promote open science around the world and highlight particular skills and expertise offered by your researchers. VIVO can serve as the institution’s hub for research data maintained in many source systems, particularly when connected to open access repositories that make publications and research data available to the public.

Collaborating requires shared vision and aligning experiences, but also compatibility. For this and so many reasons, public profiles like VIVO’s are key to telling the whole story about a potential collaborator.

Fedora in the time of COVID-19

DSpace news - სამ, 18/08/2020 - 16:37

The impacts of coronavirus disease 2019 are being felt around the world, and access to digital materials is essential in this time of remote work and study. The Fedora community has been reflecting on the value of our collective digital repositories in helping our institutions and researchers navigate this unprecedented time. 

Many member institutions have seen increases in usage of digital repositories as teaching and learning has relied heavily upon digital access to special collections materials, and researchers have leveraged scholarly articles and research data to help aid in addressing the pandemic.

We highlight here two examples of where Fedora-based repositories are making a difference to faculty, students, and researchers in this time of COVID-19.

UNC-Chapel Hill Coronavirus Research repository https://doi.org/10.17615/krdy-6769

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Fedora-based Carolina Digital Repository expands the reach of scholarship by making research and datasets available online. Many publications include coronavirus-related research, and they have captured a wealth of these publications in their  COVID-19 research page with content from the UNC-Chapel Hill Coronavirus Research Collection.

 

 

“Influenza spread by droplets sprayed from nose and throat” https://resource.nlm.nih.gov/101453499

The National Library of Medicine in the United States houses many historical collections related to quarantine, communicable disease control, influenza spread, and the flu pandemic of 1918. This kind of historical content is especially relevant today as we look to the past to help us in weathering the experience of the coronavirus, and provide valuable information to those studying public health. Of particular note is a post that features public health posters which are housed in their Fedora-based repository.

Fedora is free and open source, and we rely on our community to support our efforts. For more information on the Fedora program and tiered membership levels, please see the Fedora page on the LYRASIS website.
