|Part of the winning submission in the category ‘best tool‘.|
A bit later than intended, but I am pleased to announce the winner of the Winter solstice challenge: Bianca Kramer! Of course, she was the only contender, but her solution is awesome! In fact, I am surprised no one took her took, ran it on their own data and just submit that (which was perfectly well within the scope of the challenge).
Best Tool: Bianca Kramer
The best tool (see the code snippet on the right) uses R and a few R packages (rorcid, rjson, httpcache) and services like ORCID and CrossRef (and the I4OC project), and the (also awesome) oadoi.org project. The code is available on GitHub.
Highest Open Knowledge Score: Bianca Kramer
I did not check the self-reported score of 54%, but since no one challenged here, Bianca wins this category too.
So, what next? First, start calculating your own Open Knowledge Scores. Just to be prepared for the next challenge in 11 months. Of course, there is still a lot to explore. For example, how far should we recurse with calculating this score? The following tweet by Daniel Gonzales visualizes the importance so clearly (go RT it!):
- Comparing the coverage, recall, and precision of searches for 120 systematic reviews in Embase, MEDLINE, and Google Scholar: a prospective study
- Innovations in scholarly communication – global survey on research tool usage
