Innovation, language, and the web

Language and innovation are inseparable. Language conveys ideas which are essential in innovation, establishes the most immediate connections with our conceptualisation of the outside world, and provides the building blocks for communication. Every linguistic choice is necessarily meaningful, and it involves the parallel construction of form and meaning. From this perspective, language is a dynamic knowledge construction process. In this article, emphasis will be laid on investigating how words are used to describe innovation, and...

One of the main objective of the project is to develop a repository that should gather, classify and structure marine scientific literature and data thus guaranteeing their accessibility to researchers and...

Industrial Philology: Problems and techniques of data and archives preservation for future generations

Eva Sassolini & MANUELA SASSI
The main objective of digital archiving of texts is their re-use and preservation. The concept that guides these initiatives is linked to structural and organizational needs which heavily influence the definition of the format specifications that describe the organisation of the archives at various levels and consists of a more or less complex document. A format specification provides the details needed to build a file from a text, establishes the admitted encodings and software applications...

Grey Literature Between Tradition and Innovation: Is There a Continuum?

Pardelli Gabriella, SARA GOGGI & MANUELA SASSI
This study wants to explore new ways of social media communication for Grey Literature. In particular it describes the role of social media in relation with traditional channels and how social media applications can be used for Grey.

A Terminology Based Re-Definition of Grey Literature

The conventionally accepted definition of Grey Literature, as Information produced and distributed by non-commercial publishing, does not take into consideration either the increasing availability of forms of grey knowledge, or the growing importance of computer-based encoding and management as the standard mode of creating and developing grey literature. Semi-automated terminological analysis of almost twenty years of terminological creativity in the proceedings of eleven GL International Conferences offers the opportunity to pave the way to a...

Semantic Query Analysis from the Global Science Gateway

SARA GOGGI, Pardelli Gabriella, Roberto Bartolini, MONICA MONACHINI, stefania biagioni & Carlo Carlesi
Nowadays web portals play an essential role in searching and retrieving information in the several fields of knowledge: they are ever more technologically advanced and designed for supporting the storage of a huge amount of information in natural language originating from the queries launched by users worldwide. Given this scenario, we focused on building a corpus constituted by the query logs registered by the GreyGuide: Repository and Portal to Good Practices and Resources in Grey...

Open Grey for Natural Language Processing: A ride on the network

Pardelli Gabriella, SARA GOGGI & MANUELA SASSI
The aim of this paper is to introduce the Open Access movement for Natural Language Processing (NLP) by means of a wide range of open access Grey Literature documentation available on the web. In 2008 Robert Dale, in the last issue of volume 35 of Computational Linguistics said: “There are a number of definitions of the term ‘open access’ in circulation, but almost all share the key principle that scientific literature should be freely available...

Knowledge Communities In Grey

The dynamic nature of modern human social interactions, and the increasing capability of wireless and mobile devices for creating and sharing contents, open up the opportunity for a wide dissemination of information through complex knowledge sharing systems. As the shared knowledge components build cognitive ties, there is no real sharing of knowledge without a common understanding of it. In this article, particular emphasis is laid on technologies in Natural Language understanding and knowledge management for...

The Grey-side of Audio Archives

MONICA MONACHINI, Maria Francesca Stamuli, Silvia CALAMAI, NICCOLO' PRETTO & Silvia Bianchi
Archives often include documents that can hardly be considered publications or grey literature as such, yet they maintain their documentary value and play a role of primary sources for the specialists. These documents, indeed, can help archivists to reveal the sedimentation process of the archive itself and to preserve the authentic context of the documentary production. They also appear to be very useful for the community of researchers and scholars. This happens more frequently with...

Tools and Resources Supporting the Cultural Tourism

Eva Sassolini & Eugenio Picchi
The diffusion of internet and the information technologies are creating continuous information flows. There is a widespread awareness of the added value and of the role that the Web has in dissemination, exploitation and promotion of the cultural tourism, especially in a country like Italy, where the cultural heritage is very important. Moreover, an open philosophy causes problems of authoritativeness in the production of contents because it is characterized by a strong interaction among users...

A Geographical Visualization of GL Communities: A Snapshot

Mapping Italian Grey Communities. What is there beyond the Academy?

Silvia Giannini, stefania biagioni, SARA GOGGI & Pardelli Gabriella
The following title was published on an influential Italian newspaper, La Stampa, on November 7, 2013. “Tra i tesori della ‘Letteratura Grigia’ un’Eneide in napoletano del ‘600”. The article is about the presentation of the “Fondo De Mauro” on the Italian Network of Popular Culture: this fund originates from a private collection built up in several decades and donated to the Network by Tullio De Mauro and his wife Silvana Ferreri in 2011; it is...

Semantic networks for improved access to biomedical databases

Eva Sassolini, Sebastiana Cucurullo & Eugenio Picchi
The development of strategies and tools to access and analyze large amounts of data, so to discover correlations between seemingly unrelated data, capture associations and draw conclusions, is a research area of recent development in the acquisition of knowledge. It is a fact that the study of innovative technologies has enabled an exponential growth of knowledge in the biomedical field, but the large amount of information available and the heterogeneity of information sources are a...

Providing Access to Grey Literature: The CLARIN Infrastructure

Sara Goggi, Gabriella Pardelli, Irene Russo, Roberto Bartolini & MONICA MONACHINI
The idea is to use the VLO for inquiring about the quantity of grey literature which can actually be found in CLARIN. A mapping between the terminological resources contained in the GreyNet International 1992-2017 website and in particular in the GreySource Index > Document Types in Grey Literature – and those retrievable from the VLO has been performed. This work will provide a map of the documentation archived in the CLARIN infrastructure, whose purpose is...

Grey Literature and Computational Linguistics: From Paper To Net

The advent and exponential development of the World Wide Web has led to an increasing availability of unstructured knowledge and distributed information sources, meeting general public requirements that are hardly addressed by other more traditional information channels. This trend has concurrently raised a considerable interest in the application of Computational Linguistics (CL) methodologies to document access and retrieval, as they offer the unprecedented opportunity to make the subjective, user-centred information demands of Net citizens meet...

Grey Literature for Natural Language Processing: A Terminological and Statistical Approach

Laura Cignoni, Pardelli Gabriella & MANUELA SASSI
This paper presents the results of a study on grey literature (GL) in the field of Natural Language Processing (NLP). Our data has been collected in a corpus of ca 13,000 records corresponding to the titles of papers presented at International Conferences from 1950 to June 2008. A statistical representation of the most significant terms relative to GL in NLP and other interrelated disciplines associates old and new words, highlighting the terminological changes that have...

A terminological “journey” in the Grey Literature domain

Roberto Bartolini, Pardelli Gabriella, SARA GOGGI, Silvia Giannini & stefania biagioni

Grey Literature in European Commission Projects

SARA GOGGI, Pardelli Gabriella, Silvia Giannini & stefania biagioni
The survey is focused on the documentation produced by the European Commission (EC) projects involved in the Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (hereafter FP7) and managed by the Italian National Research Council (hereafter CNR). In particular, the Grey Literature (GL) available on CORDIS1 and European Projects websites was analysed. In order to verify how it is managed and whether it is compliant with EC recommendations, some categories were introduced to identify, measure and...
