Welcome to the Summer Meeting for the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP)! The 2017 theme is Strengthening Ties Between Observations and User Communities. The theme is based on one of the goals in the 2015 - 2020 ESIP Strategic Plan, which provides a framework for ESIP’s activities over the next three years.

Integrating RMap with the Open Science Framework: New tools to build and navigate your map of scholarly research products and collaborators

Today's scholarly works can be dynamic, distributed, and complex. They can consist of multiple related components (article, dataset, software, webpage, multimedia, etc.) that are made available asynchronously, assigned a range of identifiers, and stored in different repositories. Each work may involve various funders, institutions, and contributors in a range of roles.

Using semantic web technologies, the RMap platform is designed to capture and preserve maps of relationships amongst scholarly works, and make the connections discoverable to relevant user communities. Through RMap, researchers can express the full complexity of a work, and navigate the network that forms both visually and through an API.

The RMap team is currently working with the Center for Open Science to build features that makes RMap functionality available through the Open Science Framework (OSF) platform. OSF is a free, open source web application that provides project management support for researchers across the entire research life-cycle. Researchers can use the platform to collaborate on projects, manage files, and share research with the public. One OSF-RMap feature will provide the option to create and display relationships between OSF projects and other related materials that are stored outside of OSF. Another will allow OSF users to express the roles they played in different projects as RMap relationships. A third will support the display of a users’ most frequent collaborators.

In this session, we will introduce the RMap system and showcase some of the features of its API and GUI. The RMap team have partnered with the ESIP Usability Cluster to harness meaningful feedback provided through the expertise of the ESIP community members regarding the RMap visualization and proposed OSF features. Participants will get the unique opportunity to preview these features and contribute feedback that we will use to improve this work as it moves into production.

The RMap project was funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and carried out as a partnership between Data Conservancy, Portico, and IEEE.
