The TRIPLE booksprint will take place in Konstancin, Poland, on 7-9 September 2022. The idea of the booksprint is to focus on a limited number of key types of metadata for a scholarly publication and assess it in the context of open metadata initiatives and most pressing challenges in the Social Sciences and Humanities. We will focus on those types which are typically present when the user accesses the publication via a service such as a metadata aggregator or a repository.

Chosen key metadata types: 

  • Abstracts
  • Citations/references 
  • Keywords
  • Persistent identifiers (PIDs) e.g. Publication, Author, Institution/Funder, Project IDs

What we will aim to deliver as a result of the booksprint is a report about the role of open metadata in the SSH scholarly communication. Our idea is to focus on 4 areas – abstracts, citations, keywords and persistent identifiers – and to do so we have invited both the experts in each field and the specialists from the TRIPLE consortium working on the development of the GOTRIPLE platform. 

We imagine that each of these 4 areas will have a dedicated chapter in the report and each of these chapters will on the one hand present the area on a more general level (especially thanks to the participation of area experts) and on the other address how this area has been or will/should be addressed in the GOTRIPLE platform (especially thanks to the TRIPLE consortium members).

For a general discussion of an area we would especially like to outline why open abstracts/citations/keywords/persistent identifiers are important for scholarly communication, how existing initiatives (methods/approaches) are working towards opening these resources and what are the most important challenges in each area.

For a GOTRIPLE contextualisation we would especially like to present how TRIPLE has dealt with a particular area, what challenges we have faced and form some recommendations (especially in the areas when we do not have a lot experience in, but our guests have).

We imagine that conclusions, comparisons and broader observations will be placed outside of these 4 specific chapters. 

IBL PAN will be responsible for constructing the final version of the report to be consulted and accepted by all participants.
