The HIRMEOS work programme is comprised of seven Work Packages (WP). All Work Packages are essentially interlinked and run in parallel with each other. Partners has been identified to lead each Work Package.

UGOEUGOE, CNRS, NHRF (EIE), OAPEN, DGIA, UBIQUITY PRESS, Open Book Pub, DARIAH ERIC, UNITOTHE WP will design HIRMEOS’ mode of communication and outreach, strengthen HIRMEOS’ international network and core mission, foster the joint development and aligned
implementation of state-of-the-art services.
- Communication and outreach strategy
- Dissemination activity: Transferring communication and outreach strategy in HIRMEOS corporate identity,
communication and outreach roadmap and communication outlets
- Disseminating HIRMEOS’ project results and promoting the services of HIRMEOS to
targeted stakeholders
- Fostering and strengthening communication with network of key stakeholders and scientific communities

WP1 – Administration

WPL : OpenEdition
Participants : all WPL
Objectives : Coordination of the project, Quality management

  • Administrative, financial and legal management
  • Coordination of the work plan
  • Coordination of technical developments and services implementation – including data management

WP2 – Identification

WPL : EKT
Participants : Oapen, OpenEdition, MWS, UGOE, Dariah_EU
Objectives : WP2 will add unique and standardized identifiers to the documents and to information attached to the document:

  • identify documents : DOI
  • identify authors : ORCID

WP2 Linking and embedding SSH monographs in the European e-infrastructure ecosystem
Objective of this WP is to develop tools (services?) and mechanisms in view of integrating open access monographs produced by the OPERAS network partners in the SSH in the wider European e-infrastructure ecosystem. Focus will be laid on the linkability of content, in particular book references (through DOIs), metadata alignment and entity definition in the works of the platforms, as well as improvement of a select set of tools, that will become services embedded in them from now on
T2.1 Enhanced references. Aim of this task will be to test and, where necessary, to improve a tool developed by OpenEdition, Bilbo, which structures and then checks references against existing databases (in particular crossref) and corrects them, thus producing structured and linkable information.
T2.2 Enhancing and mainstreaming author IDs. Implementation of ORCID in all platforms

WP3 – Entity recognition

WPL : DARIAH-EU
Participants : OAPEN, OpenEdition, MWS, UGOE
Objectives : WP3 will add unique and standardized identifiers to the documents and to information attached to the document.

  • identify named entities : NERD

T3.1 Entity recognition. NERD NERD will identify and disambiguate entities mentioned in text. The process includes a Named Entity Recogniser for identifying open entities in text (such as person, places, dates, etc.) based on CRF and a disambiguation of entities against Wikipedia and FreeBases entries, for example. This can form the basis of semantically linking and then mapping and visualising themes and concepts across multiple texts.
T3.2 Linking publications to research data
T3.3 Embedding into European e-infrastructures (I am wondering whether we should have a WP specifically for this, just because the call places an emphasis on this or not)

WP4 – Certification

WPL : OAPEN
Participants : OpenEdition, all others for validation
Objectives : WP4 will add a standardized description of peer-review process and license to the documents using DOAB certification service

  • automatize upload of monographs metadata to DOAB
  • certification of peer-reviewing process
  • certification of licensing

WP5 – Open annotation

WPL : Ubiquity
Participants : UGOE, OpenEdition, Oapen, UniTO, MWS, Dariah_EU, OBP
Objectives : WP5 will implement an open annotation layer on top of the platforms using Annotator, if possible, attribute unique identifiers to the annotations and add the data to the documents. It will experiment peer-reviewing using the open annotation layer

  • implement hypothes.is
  • attribute IDs the the annotations
  • experiment OPR to monographs

WP6 – Usage Metrics

WPL : OAPEN
Participants : OpenEdition, UGOE, EKT, KU, Ubiquity, OBP
Objectives : WP6 will standardize usage indicators on monographs and experiment implementation of alternative metrics based on measurement of impact through social media setting up a basic layer for a future book metrics service (maybe through IRUS-UK http://www.irus.mimas.ac.uk/help/toolbox/)

  • implement COUNTER stats
  • implement alternative metrics for books
  • prototype an integrated book metrics service

WP7 – Community Outreach and Exploitation

WPL : UGOE
Participants : AEUP, EKT, MWS; UniTO
Objectives : WP7 will engage the different stakeholders to the projects : academics, libraries, teachers and the general public (open annotation).
In this work package we will apply a holistic approach to design HIRMEOS’ mode of communication and outreach, to strengthen HIRMEOS’ international network and core mission to foster the joint development and aligned implementation of state-of-the-art services, and to reach out to all relevant stakeholders and communities in reserarch and the public in order to safeguard that HIRMEOS’ services for scholarly monographs are aligned and interoperable with existing infrastructures for Open Science (e.g. OpenAIRE, DARIAH-EU) and stakeholders’ and communities’ needs.
Activities:

  • Communication and outreach strategy
  • Dissemination
  • Community outreach
