Annotating of papers’ abstract

This post is part of a continuing series on the new enrichment facility at Socionet.

After logging into the Socionet system you can annotate the abstract (if it is present) on any paper available at RePEc or Socionet. You can, however, not create a new abstract. The annotated paper’s abstract may look like this

The annotated fragment of the abstract highlighted by yellow background color are made by the author. If a non-author creates an annotation the annotated text will be on a pink background. The text of an annotation is a pop-up. It appears if you point your mouse on the annotated text fragment. All annotations on the paper are listed at the right with links to detailed views of the annotation data.

If you want to create a new annotation just select a text fragment within an abstract of a paper. You will see an icon to open a form to create an annotation. This form looks very much the same as shown and described in the previous note.

There is only one difference. If you are  the author of the paper whose abstract you are annotating you will have in the drop-down list “Relationship type” only the value “no relationship“. But if you are annotating the paper is not yours, in this list you will have a taxonomy called “Professional opinions and evaluation”.

We provide the following set of initial values for this taxonomy:

responds positively to
innovative result
very interesting result
turning point for the science development
best, most relevant on the subject
responds negatively to
unscientific approach
potentially dangerous effect
result based on confusion
suspected plagiarism

From technical point of view all created annotations exist in the Socionet system as semantic linkages (see the example), where the source object of the linkage is the personal profile of the linkage’s author, the target object is the paper which abstract is annotated and the semantic of the linkage is a value from the listed above taxonomy or the “no relationship” value.
