Deliverable D2.1 Literature review (M3)

This report provides an overview of the literature in the main areas of research relevant to the SISOB project. In each case, the review is informed by the basic conceptual model underlying the project. The paper provides a preliminary outline of the model, going on to review the concepts and conceptual tools that will drive the project: social networks, Social Network Analysis and related tools and technologies. The final section provides a review of the concepts, theories and experimental work that underlie the three SISOB case studies, dedicated to researcher mobility, knowledge sharing and peer review respectively, and illustrates how the research described relates to the SISOB conceptual model.

Deliverable D2.2 Requirements document and specification of conceptual model (M6)

This report describes a Conceptual Model designed to provide a unifying framework for the studies and tools planned for later phases of the SISOB project. The model defines a shared vocabulary for use within the project, and makes explicit the central assumptions underlying the work of the project. After a summary review of the relevant literature and of basic assumptions, the report outlines the main entities and relationships in the model and provides a preliminary picture of the way the model will be operationalized in the planned case studies.

Deliverable D2.3 Detailed specification of indices, representations and tools (M12)

This report provides a concise description of the data and indicators that will be used in the three SISON case studies on social mobility (Chapter 2), knowledge sharing (Chapter 3) and peer review (Chapter 4). In each case, we define the hypotheses we seek to test, “base variables” (input variables used to calculate indicators), dependent variables and independent variables. Where relevant, we include observations on the rationale underlying the choice of indicators, and qualitative aspects of the methods used in their calculation. For a mathematical treatment the reader is referred to D4.2

Deliverable D3.1 Report for the Normalized Curriculum Vitae considering European needs (M10)

The aim of this deliverable is to reflect on the structure and nature of data about research, to find effective solutions to extract effective conclusions for CV definitions of the information extracted from different sources. It is reflection about the normalized data about research results and their meaning, although it has been generated in different contexts.

Deliverable D3.2 General purpose tool and API for accessing to different databases (M20)

This deliverable presents the API developed in the project to access, retrieve and manage information from the different sources of data that are currently being used, as well as from any other sources that could be used in the future. As mentioned in other deliverables, the interchange format chosen in the project is the CVN. Consequently, we have constructed an API which is able to interpret and process information structured according to the CVN. Likewise, through this API one can easily transform any data stored in the objects of the API into a set of CVN files.

Deliverable D5.1 Report on representation methods, libraries and requirements for visual metaphors for case studies (M10)

The main purpose of visualization is to provide a graphic capable of representing large amounts of quantitative and qualitative data in a clear and easy-to-follow way. The aim of this document is to report these types of visualization which are relevant to the SISOB project, prepare the basis for a set of visualization tools for representing the results of the case studies and then the visualization options for the SiSOB tool.

Deliverable D5.2 API for each visual metaphor (M20)

As explained in deliverable 5.1, the main purpose of visualization is to provide a graphic capable of representing large amounts of quantitative and qualitative data in a clear and easy-­‐to-­‐follow way. This document describes how visualization has been managed in SiSOB project from the Abstract: technical point of view. The set of visualization metaphor components and the API designed and implemented for this purpose is explained as well. The goal is to provide developers with a set of guidelines to be able themselves to implement and include new visualization components inside the architecture of the SiSOB system.

Deliverable D6.3 Configuration, test of the platform and first evaluation report (M22)

This deliverable describes the two main prototypes of the SISOB system released so far and the evaluations conducted with them. The first of these prototypes is the prototype released in March 2013 as first prototype milestone of the SISOB system. As the actual second prototype of the SISOB system has only been released for internal usage, the second prototype described in this deliverable is the actual third prototype. For both prototypes we describe the user interface together with the available analysis functionalities, the configuration of the system, and also briefly the underlying architecture

Deliverable D7.1 Report on the analysis of researchers' mobility and the effects of researchers' mobility on research (M20)

This report summarizes the literature on mobility and careers and defines the different mobility measures. It then describes the data sources used for measuring mobility and assesses the different methodologies used for collecting and coding the data. Finally, it offers an analysis of mobility and describes different mobility patterns and their interactions.

Deliverable D7.2 Report on the effects of researchers' mobility in terms of scientific productivity (M24)

The theoretical framework on why we expect a positive effect of mobility on performance is focussed on expected increases in human and social capital as well as on job matching theory. We hypothesise that only a move to an institution of higher quality/reputation will be associated with a medium term increase in productivity. Different indicators for scientific performance are debated. Further, we introduce a discussion on rankings to measure up and downward mobility. Then we present five case studies of the effect of mobility on performance. They shows result of the 16 country Glob-Sci survey and country studies on the UK, US and Japan.

Deliverable D9.2 Characterization and evaluation of specific author-reviewer networks (M18)

We describe a methodology to evaluate possible biases in peer review systems and apply it to a database from FrontiersIn – a large open access publisher. The study failed to find certain “traditional” forms of bias (e.g. gender bias) but provides indications of previously unreported forms of paradoxical bias (e.g. bias of female reviewers against female author). The methods still require improvement – in particular in data cleaning procedures and statistical methodology. Our next study will address some of these issues, helping to create a general purpose tool for the evaluation of peer‐review systems.

Deliverable D9.3 Study of enhanced evaluation (M30)

We describe a methodology to detect biases in peer review systems. Our first study considers biases linked to the personal identities of authors, reviewers and their institutions. The second considers reviewers’ and authors’ positions in their scientific communities. We pilot test our methodologies on two databases of review results, one from an open access publishing house with an open review process, and one from a set of computer science conferences, that used classical review. We are currently implementing our methods in a community-­‐accessible workbench. Two appendices describe the requirements and implementation

Deliverable D10.2 Online journal (M36)

SiSOBserver has been brought into being with the aim of fulfilling one of SiSOB’s goals: sharing knowledge about the project. We would like it to function as a platform and forum for exchanging ideas and experience with our readers.

For the SiSOB partners, the journal is more than just a means of sharing knowledge. The process of its editing, publishing and distributing allows us to experience first-hand how social media shape the way science reaches society. Our aim is to reach the greatest number of readers from diverse fields and walks of life. We wish to get through to people from different professional sectors, independently of their level of specialization. This is how we understand dissemination of research in its purest form.
