Simple key-word searching Three participating repositories in the pilot: BADC, STFC ePubs, SOTON ePrints</p></li><li><p>Adding Cross-CitationsTraditional CitationCross CitationCannot tell whether the data and publication are actually related.what data and publications inspire a piece of work (generating a new data set)what publications arise from a data setWe need to exploit the concept of cross-citation to see whether items are actually related.</p></li><li><p>Maintaining LinksIdeally the archives holding the datasets and publications would be notified that a paper citing them had been submitted.</p><p>Metadata associated with those records would be updated to reflect the citations. The metadata in the publication repository should also link to the metadata in the data archives and vice versa.It would be great if this notification could be done automatically.Tedious to enter citationsforward citations (cited-by) are hard to track</p><p>We adapted a protocol from the world of BloggingTrackbackDesigned to allow cross-referencing of blog articles Extended to allow richer metadata</p></li><li><p>Trackback Protocol</p></li><li><p>Sender PublicationThis publication has a citation to a technical report</p></li><li><p>Adds CitationSends trackback call to this URI</p></li><li><p>Embedded MetadataTrackback URIFormats accepted</p></li><li><p>After Trackback cited-by link addedReceiver PublicationAdded this cited by link</p></li><li><p>Notes on TrackbackA simple existing protocolP2P loosely federates repositoriesExtended to carry metadata of the citationTo add cited-by linksCan also indicate which metadata is expectedSimple Dublin Core ePrints Application ProfileCan also use the metadata of the receiver Improves the citation metadataImplemented in ePubsAlso partially in BADCReceiver only send email to admin.Some problems or extensions are under considerationLink to metadata not full textSpamming anyone could send trackbacksWhitelistsAdministrator interventionMultiple entriesSame citation multiple timesSame citation in different repositoriesRetraction of citationA delete protocol</p></li><li><p>ConclusionsCLADDIER supports the scientific process with federated repositories</p><p>This requires the cross-linking network of information objects.Which needs to be stored, maintained and searchedNow doing some user testing </p><p>Tools and ideas relatively straightforwardLots of gluing of existing componentsKeep it simple so it will get used</p><p> </p></li></ul>
