Educational ecosystems for Information Science: The case of the University of Pisa
Casarosa V., Ruggieri S., Salvatori E., Simi M., Turbanti S.
Interdisciplinarity is becoming increasingly important in education. With the rapidly evolving job market, an interdisciplinary education can prepare students for the flexibility and broad knowledge base required to adapt. At the University of Pisa, we recognized the value of an interdisciplinary educational environment during our participation in the European project EINFOSE, where we harmonized the entry requirements for master programs in Information Science. Prior to this project, we had been building study programs in Digital Humanities and Data Science, whose intersection organically nurtured a diverse learning space. Through this lens, we will reflect on the obstacles constituted by disciplinary barriers and stress the importance of a flexible and open 'ecosystem' for education. These conclusions will be supported by data analysis on the careers of our students over the last eight years.Source: Education for information 36 (2020): 119–138. doi:10.3233/EFI-190330

Foundations of a framework for peer-reviewing the research flow
Bardi A., Casarosa V., Manghi P.
Traditionally, peer-review focuses on the evaluation of scientific publications, literature products that describe the research process and its final results in natural language. The adoption of ICT technologies in support of science introduces new opportunities to support transparent evaluation, thanks to the possibility of sharing research products, even inputs, intermediate and negative results, repetition and reproduction of the research activities conducted in a digital laboratory. Such innovative shift also sets the condition for novel peer review methodologies, as well as scientific reward policies, where scientific results can be transparently and objectively assessed via machine-assisted processes. This paper presents the foundations of a framework for the representation of a peer-reviewable research flow for a given discipline of science. Such a framework may become the scaffolding enabling the development of tools for supporting ongoing peer review of research flows. Such tools could be "hooked", in real time, to the underlying digital laboratory, where scientists are carrying out their research flow, and they would abstract over the complexity of the research activity and offer user-friendly dashboards.Source: IRCDL 2019 - 15th Italian Research Conference on Digital Libraries, pp. 195–208, Pisa, Italy, 31 January - 01 February 2019

The European project OpenUP: OPENing UP new methods, indicators and tools for peer review, impact measurement and dissemination of research results
Bardi A., Casarosa V., Manghi P.
Open Access and Open Scholarship are substantially changing the way scholarly artefacts are evaluated, published and assessed, while the introduction of new technologies and media in scientific workflows has changed the ``how and to whom'' science is communicated, and how stakeholders interact with the scientific community. OpenUP addresses key aspects and challenges of the currently transforming science landscape. Its main objectives are to: (i) identify and determine new mechanisms, processes and tools for the peer-review of all types of research results (publications, data, software, processes, etc.); (ii) explore, identify and classify innovative dissemination mechanisms with an outreach aim towards businesses and industry, education, and society as a whole; (iii) analyse and identify a set of novel indicators that assess the impact of research results and correlate them to channels of dissemination.Source: IRCDL 2018 - 14th Italian Research Conference on Digital Libraries, pp. 240–248, Udine, 25-26 January 2018

Who is the data curator? Defining a vocabulary
Tammaro A. M., Casarosa V.
In 2016, the IFLA Section Library Theory and Research has (partially) funded the research project "Data curator who is s/he?" to clarify the profile of data curator. The main goal of the project was to define characteristics of roles and responsibilities of data curators in the international and interdisciplinary contexts. The research questions of the Project were: R1: How is data curation defined by practitioners/professional working in the field?; R2: What terms are used to describe the roles for professionals in data curation area?; R3: What are primary roles and responsibilities of data curators?; R4: What are educational qualifications and competencies required of data curators? In this paper we present briefly some of the results related to research questions R1 and R2, namely what terms are used to describe the roles for professionals in data curation area.Source: 14th Italian Research Conference on Digital Libraries (IRCDL 2018), pp. 249–255, Udine, Italy, 25-26/01/2018

The Key Role of the DELOS Network of Excellence in Establishing Digital Libraries as a Research Field in Europe
Thanos C., Casarosa V.
It was only in the mid-1990s that Digital Libraries became a research topic in Europe. The European Union was then instrumental in supporting and promoting the subject. One key element of that support was the establishment of the DELOS Network of Excellence. Its central role in the development of digital libraries in the period 1997-2007 in Europe and its contributions areoutlined in this paper.Source: LIBER quarterly 26 (2017): 296–307. doi:10.18352/lq.10165

Peer-review of the research flow
Bardi A., Casarosa V., Manghi P.
An increasing number of researchers use ICT tools for the production and processing of research outcomes. In the last decade, research infrastructures (organizational and technological facilities supporting research activities) are investing in "e-infrastructures" that leverage ICT tools, services, guidelines and policies to support the digital practices of their community of researchers. e-infrastructures are the place where researchers can define the boundaries of their digital laboratories, i.e. the subset of assets they use to run an experiment. Researchers run their digital experiments (e.g. simulations, data analysis) taking advantage of the digital laboratory assets and generate new research data and computational products (e.g. software, R algorithms, computational workflows) that can be shared with other researchers of the same community, to be discovered, accessed and reused. The role of digital laboratories is therefore twofold: on the one hand, they support researchers in their advancement of science, offering the facilities needed for their daily activities; on the other hand, they foster the dissemination of research output within the research community, supporting discovery, access to, sharing, and reuse of digital research products, including intermediate results of a research flow. Those features are fundamental for an effective implementation of the Open Science paradigm. Digital laboratories set the conditions for novel peer review methodologies, as well as scientific reward policies, which assess the research flow not only based on the scientific article that describes the final results, but also include the other (intermediate) research products (data, software, workflows, negative results) so that science can be transparently and objectively assessed, possibly using machine-assisted processes. The presentation will describe our vision of a "research flow peer review", trying to identify current solutions and existing challenges, and proposing future directions. The implementation of a full-fledged research flow peer review methodology has requirements (tools and practices) that differ from those identified in Open Science for reproducibility. Reproducibility of science and its underlying principles are crucial to support transparent peer review, but existing practices are not enough to fully address research flow peer review. In order to support this kind of peer review, reviewers should evaluate science by means of a user-friendly environment, which transparently relies on the underlying digital laboratory assets, hides their ICT complexity, and gives guarantees of repeatability and reproducibility recognised by the community. We propose some ideas in the direction of the definition of a general framework for the representation of a research flow peer review, which could then be tailored to a given discipline of science. Such a framework may become a scaffolding for holding new discipline-specific tools, which in turn should become "real-time hooks" in the underlying digital laboratory (where scientists are carrying out their research flow), providing the collection of data and information useful for the peer review. Such tools should abstract over the complexity of the specific research activity and offer user-friendly dashboards to examine the scientific process adopted, explore the ongoing research flow, and evaluate its intermediate experiments and relative productsSource: Digital Infrastructures for Research (DI4R), Bruxelles, 30 November 2017 - 01 December 2017

OpenUP - A specification of the scientific method and scientific communication
Manghi P., Bardi A., Casarosa V.
This deliverable aims at shedding some light on scientific peer review in the era of digital science, which in our view goes beyond reviewing scholarly literature. In the Digital Era not only the final outcome of the research process, i.e. the scientific publication, but potentially also other research products generated at other stages of the research workflow can be subject to review by peers. The adoption of ICT technologies in support of science introduces unprecedented benefits, which can be mainly identified in: (i) the ability of sharing an online "digital laboratory", i.e. tools, applications, services used to perform science, and (ii) the ability of sharing research products used as input or produced in the context of a digital laboratory. An example of (i) may be RStudio, a desktop tool to run R scripts, made available for download from some Web repository, while an example of (ii) may be the specific R script created by a scientist as result of his/her research activity, made available to other researchers through the digital laboratory. Accordingly, scientists can not only publish literature describing their findings but also share the entities they used and that are required to repeat and reproduce science. Such innovative shift also sets the condition for novel peer review methodologies, as well as scientific reward policies, where scientific results can be transparently and objectively assessed via machine-assisted processes. In this deliverable we describe our vision of "research flow peer review" as a urgent and demanded practice, identifying related challenges, current solutions, and proposing future directions.Source: Project report, OpenUP, Deliverable D3.2, 2017

Expressing Needs of Digital Audio-Visual Applications in Different Communities of Practice for Long-Term Preservation
Kumar N., Casarosa V.
Lack of awareness on preservation tools and applications is a big issue today. To solve it European Commission has initiated research project, Presto4U that aimed to enable semi-automatic matching of preservation tools with audio-visual needs. To express the audio-visual needs formally it has mapped a knowledge schema. The knowledge schema was first cut and needed evaluation in terms of its ability to represent the Needs of different communities of practice, classes, their association and ability to represent requirements of Audio-visual community through properties of its classes. This evaluative study is conducted through Qualitative research approach using Interview and Questionnaire. Open Archival Information System reference model is used as theoretical framework. Fourteen members from Europe of three communities of practice have provided their needs for analysis. Data was analysed through six stages. The study found that knowledge schema is useful to express the needs of communities of practice but collected data should easily fit into the structure of knowledge schema.Source: Interdisciplinary Digital Preservation Tools and Technologies, edited by Tariq Ashraf, Naresh Kumar, pp. 54–78, 2017

EAGLE - L'infrastruttura di aggregazione dei dati e i servizi a supporto del portale e delle applicazioni
Mannocci A., Casarosa V., Manghi P., Zoppi F.
La lunga tradizione epigrafica, risalente al secolo XVI, epoca ben lontana dai concetti di globalizzazione, standardizzazione e interoperabilità, ha fatto sì che nel tempo si sedimentassero, nelle varie comunità di studiosi, modus operandi spesso contrastanti. All'inizio degli anni '30 il Sistema di Leida (B. a. Van GroninGen, "Projet d'unification des systèmes de signes critiques", in Chronique d'Égypte 7, 1932, pp. 262-269) ha contribuito a ridurre notevolmente la frammentazione presente nei testi, ma una nuova deriva si è verificata dagli anni 90 in poi quando, con l'arrivo di Internet e del Web, gli archivi epigrafici hanno iniziato la loro conversione al digitale. Nonostante la definizione di uno standard per l'annotazione di documenti a carattere epigrafico (EpiDoc: http://sourceforge.net/p/epidoc/wiki/Home/) le comunità hanno per lo più operato in modo indipendente e senza nessuna linea guida condivisa, lasciando di fatto il panorama altamente frammentario. Il progetto EAGLE mira proprio a riconciliare e riunificare sotto un'unica egida le varie comunità epigrafiche e rendere i loro contenuti ricercabili da un unico punto di accesso, e a questo scopo ha sviluppato un'infrastruttura che consente l'aggregazione di tali contenuti e la loro armonizzazione secondo un modello di dati condiviso, e permette infine di interrogare i dati sia attraverso il proprio portale che attraverso Europeana.Source: Forma urbis XXI (2016): 18–21.

Searching the EAGLE epigraphic material through image recognition via a mobile device
Bolettieri P., Casarosa V., Falchi F., Vadicamo L., Martineau P., Orlandi S., Santucci R.
This demonstration paper describes the mobile application developed by the EAGLE project to increase the use and visibility of its epigraphic material. The EAGLE project (European network of Ancient Greek and Latin Epigraphy) is gathering a comprehensive collection of inscriptions (about 80 % of the surviving material) and making it accessible through a user-friendly portal, which supports searching and browsing of the epigraphic material. In order to increase the usefulness and visibility of its content, EAGLE has developed also a mobile application to enable tourists and scholars to obtain detailed information about the inscriptions they are looking at by taking pictures with their smartphones and sending them to the EAGLE portal for recognition. In this demonstration paper we describe the EAGLE mobile application and give an outline of its features and its architecture.Source: Similarity Search and Applications. 8th International Conference, pp. 351–354, Glasgow, UK, 12-14/10/2015

The EAGLE Europeana network of Ancient Greek and Latin Epigraphy: a technical perspective
Mannocci A., Casarosa V., Manghi P., Zoppi F.
The project EAGLE (Europeana network of Ancient Greek and Latin Epigraphy, a Best Practice Network partially funded by the European Commission) aims at aggregating epigraphic material provided by some 15 different epigraphic archives (about 80% of the classified epigraphic material from the Mediterranean area) for ingestion to Europeana. The collected material will be made available also to the scholarly community and to the general public, for research and cultural dissemination. This paper briefly presents the main services provided by EAGLE and the challenges encountered for the aggregation of material coming from heterogeneous archives (different data models and metadata schemas, and exchange formats). EAGLE has defined a common data model for epigraphic information, into which data models from different archives can be optimally mapped. The data infrastructure is based on the D-NET software toolkit, capable of dealing with data collection, mapping, cleaning, indexing, and access provisioning through web portals or standard access protocols.Source: Digital Libraries on the Move 11th Italian Research Conference on Digital Libraries, IRCDL 2015, Bolzano, Italy, January 29-30, 2015, Revised Selected Papers, edited by Diego Calvanese, Dario De Nart, Carlo Tasso, pp. 75–78, 2015

The EAGLE data aggregator: data quality monitoring
Mannocci A., Casarosa V., Manghi P., Zoppi F.
The EAGLE project aggregates epigraphy related content from about 20 different data providers, and makes its content available to both Europeana and to scholars. Data Quality monitoring is a key issue in Aggregative Data Infrastructures, where content is collected from a number of different sources with different data models and quality standards. This paper presents a Monitoring Framework for enabling the observation and monitoring of an aggregative infrastructure focusing on the description of the Data Flow and Dynamics Service, and exemplifying these concepts with a use case tailored to the characteristics of the EAGLE aggregation data flow. An Infrastructure Quality Manager (IQM) is provided with a Web user interface (WebUI), allowing her to describe the data flows taking place in the infrastructure and to define monitoring scenarios. The scenarios will include the definition of sensors (pieces of software plugged into the data flow), which will provide observations of measured objects. The scenarios include also the definition of controls and analysers, which will store and process the observations received from the sensors and will verify if the values of the measured features comply with some expected behaviour over time. A monitoring scenario for EAGLE has been defined and tested on simulated data (the monitoring framework is still under development) in order to monitor the "health" of different data collections involved in the EAGLE collection and transformation workflows.Source: 7th EAGLE International Conference, Roma, Italy, 27-29 Gennaio 2016

Closing the gap: interdisciplinary perspectives on research and education for digital libraries
Tammaro A. M., Casarosa V., Castelli D.
Two major themes continue to be a subject of discussion when dealing with digital libraries: how should the education programs in LIS (Library and In- formation Science) schools be changed or updated in order to provide the needed knowledge (skills ?) for librarians in the digital age and, closely related, how could the three major memory institutions (libraries, archives and museums) de- fine common educational curricula for professionals in the three domains, now that the digital age is blurring the boundaries between the three profession. In this paper we will present some considerations about the first topic, in order to share the experience gained through the organization and the participation in five events, having as theme the educational needs of the new librarians and the possi- ble synergies of research and education in the field of digital libraries. It is hoped that it can serve as a further stimulus for discussions and for the definition of possible common actions in the digital libraries community.Source: Bridging Between Cultural Heritage Institutions, edited by Tiziana Catarci, Nicola Ferro, Antonella Poggi, pp. 187–197.

The Europeana network of Ancient Greek and Latin Epigraphy data infrastructure
Mannocci A., Casarosa V., Manghi P., Zoppi F.
Epigraphic archives, containing collections of editions about ancient Greek and Latin inscriptions, have been created in several European countries during the last couple of centuries. Today, the project EAGLE (Europeana network of Ancient Greek and Latin Epigraphy, a Best Practice Network partially funded by the European Commission) aims at providing a single access point for the content of about 15 epigraphic archives, totaling about 1,5M digital objects. This paper illustrates some of the challenges encountered and their solution for the realization of the EAGLE data infrastructure. The challenges mainly concern the harmonization, interoperability and service integration issues caused by the aggregation of metadata from heterogeneous archives (different data models and metadata schemas, and exchange formats). EAGLE has defined a common data model for epigraphic information, into which data models from different archives can be optimally mapped.

Research data management in the curriculum: an interdisciplinary approach
Tammaro A. M., Casarosa V.
Research Data Management is broadly understood as collecting, analyzing, publishing, reanalyzing, critiquing, and reusing data. The increase of digital content in the broad areas of Institutional and domain specific Repositories, Libraries, Archives and Museums and the increased interest in the sharing and preservation of "research data" have triggered the emergence of new roles such as Data Curator. The paper refers about the on-going investigation of current data curator education and training programs with regard to the role of information professionals and/or data scientists in the research lifecycle. The investigation has been based on a series of workshops and events discussing the concerns of researchers and teachers about digital library and digital curation. A first list of competencies and skills at technical and operational level that professionals should have, has been evidenced. The theoretical framework and structure of educational programmes should have sufficient flexibility to accommodate the needs of various groups of specialists. (C) 2014 The Authors.

EAGLE Portal
Prandoni C., Alfarano N., Casarosa V., Fresa A., Masi P., Buono M., Cionini N., Zoppi F., Mannocci A
This deliverable describes the main functionalities and the technical infrastructure of the EAGLE Portal, which is available online at www.eagle-network.eu. It reflects the status of the EAGLE Portal in October 2014, at the time of the first release. The deliverable will be updated in M30, when the second release of the EAGLE Portal is planned. The EAGLE Portal is the main gateway into the world of the EAGLE services and initiatives. On the portal, users can find all the background information about the project, the partners and the collections. It hosts a section where news related to the content providers or of interest for the community of epigraphists will be posted. A comprehensive presentation on the visual identity, layout and structure of the portal can be found in Deliverable D6.1 EAGLE Project Website. The portal is the main access to the set of EAGLE services, which can be accessed by a human through a browser or by the EAGLE Flagship Mobile Application, or by other applications through a set of APIs. This document is organised in two parts: Part A describes the EAGLE functions accessible through a browser, and Part B describes the APIs available for other applications, such as the Flagship Mobile Application and the Flagship Storytelling Application developed in EAGLE. In particular, Part A can be viewed as a user manual, describing the functionalities offered by the EAGLE Portal and how to use them through the Graphical User Interface (GUI). Part B can be viewed as a developer guide, providing a deeper insight on how these functionalities have been implemented and on the interactions between the different components and modules of the system. Part B provides also a description of the "external" APIs that can be used by applications that intend to take advantage of the rich set of data made available by EAGLE. In particular, the interfaces used by the Flagship Mobile Application (which is being developed in the frame of the EAGLE project) are here described in more details. Firstly, users who want to find information about inscriptions can access a search interface that is at the same time friendly and sophisticated, allowing both general users and experts to perform queries on the collections. It is possible to perform both full-text searches using a simple interface, or to launch more advanced queries. The seven controlled multilingual vocabularies (types of inscriptions, object types, material, writing, decoration, state of preservation and dating criteria), that were created to help aligning the multilingual metadata of the inscriptions from the different content providers, have been also integrated in the search engine and help users to create their search strings. Secondly, users that are interested in gaining access to the more advanced functionality can register an account and manage their Personal Space on the EAGLE Portal. In this area, they can save and annotate queries, results and single objects (including - in Release 2 - the pictures that they took using the Flagship Mobile Application) to access them in a future session.Source: Project report, EAGLE, Deliverable D5.2, pp.1–50, 2014

EAGLE - Europeana Network of Ancient Greek and Latin Epigraphy a digital bridge to the ancient world
Amato G, Casarosa V, Martineau P, Orlandi S, Santucci R, Giberti L.
This paper discusses the experience of developing a mobile application to increase the use and visibility of EAGLE, the Europeana network of Ancient Greek and Latin Epigraphy. EAGLE is a project financed by the European Commission. Its main aims are to bring together the most prominent European institutions and archives in the field of Classical Latin and Greek epigraphy and to provide Europeana with a comprehensive collection of unique historical sources related to inscriptions. EAGLE also aims to provide a single, user-friendly portal by which to search and browse the majority of surviving inscriptions from the Greco-Roman world. In order to increase the usefulness and visibility of EAGLE, two applications are being developed: a storytelling application to allow teachers and experts to assemble epigraphy-based narratives for the benefit of less experienced users, and a mobile application to enable tourists and scholars to obtain detailed information about the inscriptions they are looking at by taking pictures with their smartphones. In this paper, we will focus on the EAGLE mobile application and give an outline of its architecture and design.Source: EPC 2014 - Horizon2020 and Creative Europe vs Digital Heritage: a European Projects Crossover, pp. 25–32, Florence, Italy, 18 February 2014
