A while ago, we went along to the ORCID codefest at St. Anne’s College, Oxford.
In the day or two of coding, Alejandra won with her entry in adding ORCID functionalities to ISAcreator.
In my entry, I created a system that presented article impact metrics from ImpactStory and also automatically pulled ArrayExpress and PRIDE data links for publications. The advantages being that users don’t have to go looking for the data for a publication across many repositories. Take this example from ArrayExpress, E-GEOD-31453 – from the submission, you’d never know that there were other data submissions directly related to this submission in ArrayExpress or elsewhere, e.g. E-GEOD-27713. The component developed for BioSharing, but could be used by anyone takes a PubMed ID or DOI and finds the data available in public repositories relating to that publication. It’s use is illustrated in one of the profiles for one of our latest BioSharing users, Sheng-Da Hsu. You can see a screenshot of his publications section below, or see it for yourself here.
