CrossRef and the Pursuit of Truthiness STM 2008 Frankfurt Conference 14 October 2008

 

A Word to Worry About "truth that comes from the gut, not books" (Stephen Colbert, Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report," October 2005) "the quality of preferring concepts or facts one wishes to be true, rather than concepts or facts known to be true" (American Dialect Society, January 2006)

Internet Trust Anti-Pattern System is started by self-selecting core group of high-trust technologists (or specialists of some sort). System is touted as authority-less, non-hierarchical, etc. But this is not true (see 1). The general population starts using the system. The system nearly breaks under the strain of untrustworthy users. Regulatory controls are instituted to restore order. Sometimes they are automated, sometimes not. If the regulatory controls work, the system is again touted as authority-less, non-hierarchical, etc. But this is not true (see 5). In Google We Trust?

How can we determine whether we can trust the material emanating from a site? The Web was originally conceived as a tool for researchers who trusted one another implicitly; strong models of security were not built in. We have been living with the consequences ever since. As a result, substantial research should be devoted to engineering layers of trust and provenance into Web interactions. ..."

Sir Tim told BBC News that there needed to be new systems that would give websites a label for trustworthiness once they had been proved reliable sources…So I'd be interested in different organisations labeling websites in different ways.

Authoritative article The key idea behind the knol project is to highlight authors. Name verification is by telephone number (US only) or credit card Knol is a wasteland of…text copied from elsewhere, outdated entries abandoned by their creators, self-promotion, spam, and a great many old college papers

Reliability and quality We write under our real names Participants write for academic credit

 

 

 

 

Problem #1 The publishing process is invisible Solution #1 Make it more visible

 

Open Journal Systems: An example of open source software for journal management and publishing, J Willinsky. Library Hi Tech. 2005, Vol 23, Issue 4, p 504 doi:10.1108/07378830510636300

Problem #2 Solution #2 Thinking that publisher’s job is done on publication of the “final” version Recognize there is no final version and publisher has role post-publication

CrossMark Highlight pre-publication added value – publishing as a managed process Highlight ongoing post-publication management of content (errata, corrections, retractions) – counter false notion that once something is published the publisher’s job is done What about pre-prints? No claim of ongoing responsibility What about alternate Versions of Record?

CrossMark Basic metadata to be simple but extensible by the publisher Beyond the minimum publishers decide what metadata gets included Record and advertise processes employed to ensure trustworthiness – peer review, link to journal information pages Linked in with DOI to ensure user can locate and access the latest version of the metadata or the content if updated
