Semantic Enrichment of Research Outputs Metadata: New CRIS Facilities for Authors

  • Sergey Parinov
Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS, volume 478)


A CRIS system with implemented semantic linkage technique opens new opportunities for authors of research outputs. Using facilities of such a CRIS authors can essentially enrich metadata of their research outputs after the papers have been published and have become available at the CRIS. The proposed approach allows for authors providing some data for enrichment purposes. These data include their personal roles and contributions into the collective research, comments and notes for updating publication abstracts, data about motivations for citing the papers in the reference lists, research association with newer relevant publications, etc. Technically authors make such enrichment as a semantic linking of related publications’ metadata. They don’t overwrite the initial publishers’ metadata. In the paper we present this approach and its pilot implementation at the Socionet CRIS with focus on servicing the big international community of RePEc users. We expect that results of such enrichment will improve a professional recognition of “who did what” and “how research outputs were used”. Also we expect interest from research management and evaluation organizations.
