Notifications in Value-Adding Networks

Patrick Hochstenbach, Herbert Van de Sompel, Miel Vander Sande, Ruben Dedecker, and Ruben Verborgh

This paper addresses the growing dissatisfaction with the established scholarly communication system, which is heavily centralised and vertically integrated. In order to provide an alternative, we assume in this paper a decentralized and decoupled network of data and service nodes that want to capture the digital scholarly record, make it accessible, and preserve it over time. In such a Value-Adding network a range of agreements is required for the nodes to interact, discover artifacts and request services for them. The first result of this work, the “Notifications in Value-Adding Networks” specification, details interoperability requirements for the exchange real-time life-cycle information pertaining to artifacts using Linked Data Notifications. In an experiment, we applied our specification to one particular use-case: distributing Scholix data-literature links to a network of Belgian institutional repositories by a national service node. The results of our experiment confirm the potential of our approach and provide the framework to create a network of interacting nodes that provide the core scholarly functions (registration, certification, awareness and archiving) in a decentralized and decoupled way.
