We are thrilled to congratulate CREATE and ACASA researchers for receiving the NWO Open Science Fund!
WikipediaCitations: A FAIR dataset of Wikipedia’s citations to its sources
Giovanni Colavizza (CREATE, Media Studies):
Wikipedia is an essential component of the open science ecosystem, yet it is poorly integrated with academic open science initiatives. We propose to create WikipediaCitations: a FAIR dataset of citations from Wikipedia to all its sources. Citations will be enriched with permanent identifiers and citation statements and ingested as linked data in OpenCitations. WikipediaCitations will include a documented codebase to replicate and expand upon results. This project promises to advance the open science agenda by contributing high-quality citation data useful in ‘altmetrics’ and a variety of third-party applications, and in researching and improving the reliability of Wikipedia’s contents.
3DWorkSpace – An open science/interactive tool for 3D datasets
Jill Hilditch (Archaeology), Jitte Waagen (4D Lab), Leon van Wissen (CREATE), Hugo Huurdeman (Open Universiteit), Loes Opgenhaffen (ACASA):
New tools are urgently needed for 3D datasets to improve accessibility, facilitate engagement/interaction with the datasets and promote two-directional knowledge transfer. 3DWorkSpace will adapt the open source Voyager 3D digital museum curation tool suite (Smithsonian Institute) to promote interactive engagement with traditionally complex digital datasets. Embedded structured guidance/training for gaining competence and skills for interpreting 3D datasets will allow broader narratives to be generated and open up new avenues for knowledge publication through the creation of annotated personal 3D collections that can be tailored to specific learning goals or interests.
