HAMR: Human/Authority Metadata Reconciliation

Sean Chen, Tim Donohue, Joshua Gomez, Ranti Junus, Ryan Scherle

A tool for a curator to determine whether the various fields of a metadata record are correct. Takes a metadata record, locates any identifiers (e.g., DOI, PMID). Retrieves a copy of the metadata record from an authoritative source (e.g., CrossRef, PubMed). Displays a human-readable page that compares fields in the initial record with fields in the authoritative record. Each field is color-coded based on how well it matches, so the curator can quickly identify discrepancies.

Narrowing the focus for today:

  • Dublin core (maybe qualified)
  • framework that allows multiple authority sources
  • NOT focusing on author names (ORCID is already working on this), except the fact that they are strings, and we'll do basic string matching

Possible authority sources:

Thoughts / Questions:

  • Is there a way to do most/all of this via Javascript/AJAX/JQuery? Could it be a simple Javascript framework you could "drop" into any metadata editing interface?
