Description

Isidore is a search engine developed by Huma-Num (CNRS) in France. The CNRS (National Centre for Scientific Research) is a public organisation under the responsibility of the French Ministry of Education and Research. The CNRS has implemented an ecosystem aiming to cover the entire lifecycle of the production of scientific data and publications in the Humanities and Social Sciences. Huma-Num is part of this ecosystem. It is an infrastructure aiming to facilitate the digital turn in Humanities and Social Sciences. It is part of the national ESFRI roadmap, which is in turn aligned with the European Union’s ESFRI framework. Huma-Num coordinates the participation in DARIAH and CLARIN, as well as other potential contributors, such as Huma-Num’s national consortia. It is also involved in other European and international projects like OPERAS (OPERAS 2018). Huma-Num provides a technological infrastructure on national scale, based on a large network of partners. Huma-Num provides tools and services for each step in the research data lifecycle. It coordinates the production of digital data, while offering a variety of platforms and tools to process, preserve and disseminate the data. It also provides research projects with a range of utilities to facilitate the interoperability of various types of digital raw data and metadata. Isidore allows a unified access to digital data of Humanities and Social Sciences and relies on the principles of Web of data and on Open Science. Currently, it is has more than 5 millions documents in French, English, Spanish based on 6 000 sources. Why is Isidore an added value for science compared to classical search engines ? ISIDORE harvests structured and unstructured data: bibliographical records, metadata, integral text from digital publications, corpus, databases and scientifical news, accessible on the web. Once harvested, those informations are enriched and standardized in three languages (English, Spanish and French), by crossing with vocabularies produced either by the scientific community, either by research institutions (Rameau, LCSH, BNE, Gemet, Lexvo, Geonames…). Those multilingual enrichments allow to link the data between each other. The re-exposure of the enriched metadata follows, in turn, the principles of Web of data It is then disseminated through 4 types of interoperable accesses : - web portal - API, - RDF triple store - toolbox (soon) This process allows to offer the means to the whole community to enrich constantly its own data. We do think this process generates a real virtuous circle for data producers which could be enhanced at the European Scale. Isidore could be an entry point in the EOSC for social sciences and humanities, by harvesting and reexposing SSH European data, strenghtening the visibility of scientific data, publications and researcher profiles. Isidore mechanism will be used for the discovery tool of OPERAS, the European research infrastructure for the development of open scholarly communication. development of new thesauri, translation of the platform and its documentation. This will be part of the development of a multilingual capacity to facilitate the integration of new languages in the platform.

Summary

With this poster, we aim to give a comprehensive approach of Isidore and its added value for the research of data in Social Sciences in the context of Open Science and the EOSC.

ISIDORE harvests structured and unstructured data.
Once harvested, those informations are enriched and standardized in different languages, by crossing with referentials (vocabulary lists, thesaurus) produced either by the scientific community, either by research institutions. Those enrichments allow to link the data between each other.

The re-exposure of the enriched metadata follows, the principles of Web of data.
