Paul Groth co-authored an article about altmetrics in the Elsevier Library Connect newsletter for librarians. The newsletter reaches 18,000 librarians in 138 countries around the world.

Academic research and publishing have transitioned from paper to online platforms, and that migration has continued to evolve from closed platforms to connected networks. With this evolution, there is growing interest in the academic community in how we might measure scholarly activity online beyond formal citation.

As a complement to two papers that we will present at the ECML/PKDD 2013 conference in Prague in September we created a webpage with additional material.

The first paper: “A Fast Approximation of the Weisfeiler-Lehman Graph Kernel for RDF Data” was accepted into the main conference and the second paper: “A Fast and Simple Graph Kernel for RDF” was accepted at the DMoLD workshop.

We include links to the papers, to the software and to the datasets used in the experiments, which are stored in figshare. Furthermore, we explain how to rerun the experiments from the papers using a precompiled JAR file, to make the effort required as minimal as possible.

One visiting the Netherlands will inevitably stumble upon some “BakFiets” in the streets. This Dutch speciality that seems to be the result from cross-breeding a pick-up with a bike can be used from many things from getting the kids around to moving a fridge. Now, let’s consider a Dutch bike shop that sells some Bakfiets […]

Yesterday was the closing event of the Pilot Linked Open Data project. A significantly big crowd of politicians, civil servants, hackers, SME owners, open data activists and researchers gathered in the very nice building of the RCE in Amersfoort to hear about what has been done within this one year project lead by Erwin Folmer.

This june 10 and 11, the Data2Semantics team locked itself in a room in the Amsterdam Public Library to build a first version of the Data2Semantics Golden Demo: a pipeline for publishing enriched data (‘semantics’) directly from Dropbox to Figshare, integrated in the Linkitup webservice.

In two days, we built and integrated:

During the COMMIT/ Community event, April 2-3 in Lunteren, the Data2Semantics won one out of three COMMIT/ Valorization awards. The award is a 10000 euros subsidy to encourage the project to bring one of its products closer to use outside academia.

At the event, we presented and emphasized the philosophy of Data2Semantics to embed new enrichment tools in the current workflow of individual researchers. We are working closely with both Figshare.com (with our Linkitup tool) and Elsevier Labs to bring semantics at the fingertips of the researcher.

BeyondThePDF2 – TimeLapse from Jongens van de Tekeningen on Vimeo.

Data2Semantics was the local organizer for the Beyond the PDF 2 conference. This conference brought together over 200 scholars, technologists, librarians and publishers to discuss the future of research communication. The conference had a huge social media presence with 3,500 tweets sent by 625 participants over the course of the two days. There were also lots of other outcomes.

This is another example of how Data2Semantics is reaching out to the scientific and research communities to push new ways of doing research.
