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

WorldWideScience.org searches the 'deep web'

 

Web Where science is hundreds of times larger than the “surface web”

Generally not searchable by major search engines

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.

Access to Multimedia-based Science & Technology

 

A Case Study for Enhanced Multimedia Search & Retrieval

ScienceCinema

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

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

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

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.
