On 06.11.23 another DeepGreen consultation took place for our participating repositories. After a presentation of current developments in DeepGreen (publishing cooperation with Copernicus, optimization of metadata mapping, DeepGreen & Elsevier DEAL), we reviewed the recent Open Access Days 2023, which took place in Berlin in September. In reviewing the discussions at this conference, we discussed possible service extensions to DeepGreen, such as metadata delivery without full-text and retrieval of individual full-texts via DOI matching. We also discussed a poster on the extension of the EZB interface, which was also presented at the Open Access Days. As a result, we identified the integration of the ROR ID in the EZB metadata as a priority for DeepGreen, as this would greatly facilitate institutional attribution. Other topics discussed were the handling of duplicates and error messages in the SWORD interface in DSpace. All participating repositories are explicitly invited to participate in this recurring exchange format.
We are excited to be part of the Open Access Days 2023 in Berlin this week. On Thursday 9/28/2013 we will be presenting our talk “Did you get what you paid for? Monitoring publisher data in DeepGreen” and hope to have a lively discussion. In our presentation, we will address the topic of monitoring publisher data. The goal of such monitoring is to improve quality and ensure complete data delivery through DeepGreen.
As in June 2022 at the Library Congress in Leipzig, a DeepGreen users’ meeting was held again this year on May 23., this time as part of the 111. BiblioCon in Hannover. The event was well attended with about 30 participants. In addition to representatives of the repositories cooperating with DeepGreen, curious external visitors were also present.
DeepGreen staff members Tim Raab (BSB München) and Stefan Lohrum (KOBV) reported on current developments in the area of publisher cooperations, as well as on technical innovations such as metadata mapping and delivery of the DEAL-Springer data.
As a guest, Thorsten Wetzenstein from the University Library of the Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel gave a keynote presentation entitled “Deepgreen – an interface-driven approach to data enrichment and analysis: conception of a workflow with modules in RStudio”. The talk presented approaches to bibliometric analysis of the data provided by DeepGreen using the Bibliometrix tool.
The slides of both presentations will be available on the BIB-OPUS publication server soon.
The meeting, which was held under the motto of exchange and development, concluded with a speed dating session for the DeepGreen participants, which was intended to serve the exchange of experiences and networking. There were 12 people involved in this interactive format.
We are very pleased with the participation and hope to see you again soon in a year’s time.
The first DeepGreen users’ meeting took place at the 8th Library Congress in Leipzig on 2 June 2022. The topic of the workshop was the long-term future perspective of DeepGreen and 15 people discussed different possibilities for the long-term development of the service together with the DeepGreen team.
Various options were presented in several input presentations. An expansion of the available content in the direction of Diamond OA, Subscribe to Open, monographs, Open Educational Resources or research data was discussed, also cooperation possibilities with other projects such as OA-Switchboard, ChronosHub, OA-STRUKTKOMM or ROR.
After the input presentations, the participants discussed and prioritised the presented points again in two groups.
The result (see photo) clearly shows that DeepGreen should continue to follow the path that the service has already taken in the long term. The top priority is still the green content of consortial licence agreements. Of interest is the expansion of content in the direction of monographs, conference papers and other OA models. Both groups emphasise the urgent need to prioritise deliveries and fear a flooding of repositories if content is expanded too much, for example in the direction of research data or Open Educational Resources.
The exchange with the users was productive and very enriching. We thank everyone for their participation.
