Bibliographic databases were developed from the traditional library card catalogue in order to enable users to access library documents via various types of bibliographic information, such as title, author, series or conference date. In addition these catalogues sometimes contained some form of indexation by subject, such as the Universal (or Dewey) Decimal Classification used for books. With the introduction of the eprint archives, set up by the High Energy Physics (HEP) Community in the early...
Visions for Radiation Dosimetry over the Next Two Decades -Strategic Research Agenda of the European Radiation Dosimetry Group: Version 2020Jean-François Bottolier-Depois, Isabelle Clairand, Elena Fantuzzi, Paola Fattibene, Roger Harrison, Oliver Hupe, Pawel Olko, Veronika Olšovcová, Werner Rühm, Marco Silari, Rick Tanner & Filip Vanhavere
Introduction: The European Radiation Dosimetry Group (EURADOS) comprises a self-sustainable network of more than 70 European institutions and about 600 scientists active in the field of radiation dosimetry. It was founded in 1981, and was registered in Germany as an “e.V.” (registered society) in 2008. The aim of the network is to promote research and development and European cooperation in the field of dosimetry of ionising radiation. For this, EURADOS has established Working Groups (WGs)...
Co-authored together with Baron T., Le Meur J., & Simko T. / In this paper we present a technology for networked information services, developed at the CERN Document Server (CDS) research group, called the CERN Document Server Software (CDSware). Standardization of networked information services in the field of grey literature has recently become a subject of an intensive research in the digital library community. The current state-ofthe-art in this area effectively allows to provide various...
Abstract: High-energy neutrons are the dominant component of the prompt radiation field present outside the shielding of high-energy accelerators, and are a significant component of the cosmic radiation fields in aircraft and in spacecraft. In radiotherapy using high-energy medical accelerators, high-energy neutrons are a secondary component of the fields in the beam delivery system and in the patient’s body. The range of neutron energies in these fields extends from thermal energies to several GeV, and...
We know that software is important in research, and some of us in the scholarly communications community, for example, in FORCE11, have been pushing the concept of software citation as a method to allow software developers and maintainers to get academic...
INSPIRE is a trusted community hub that helps researchers to share and find accurate scholarly information in high energy physics.
50 Years of Experience in Making Grey Literature Available: Matching the Expectations of the Particle Physics CommunityCarmen O’Dell & Jens Vigen
Co-authored together with Dallman D., Vesely M., and Vigen J. / The CERN Scientific Information Service has been active in the field of digital library research and in providing scientific information services to the high-energy physics community for almost five decades now. Most recently the research focus has been on interoperability issues in document storage and retrieval systems, metadata added-value services, digital library automation and networked information services. The achievements of this research and the...
Grey literature has historically played a key role for researchers in the field of High-Energy Physics (HEP). Consequently CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) as the world's largest particle physics laboratory has always been facing the challenge of distributing and archiving grey material. Invenio, an open-source repository software, has been developed as part of CERN's institutional repository strategy to answer these needs. In this document we describe how the particular context of grey literature within...
Grey literature has always been the main conduit of scholarly communication for High-Energy Physics (HEP) researchers. An efficient way of searching and accessing this information is a central part of their research workflow. In 2007, a survey was conducted to understand which information resources HEP scholars use to find the information they need. The results of this survey are presented. Over 2000 answers, representing about one-tenth of the active HEP community, were collected and show...
In the self-service area of the library reading rooms it is necessary to organise the collections in the simplest way possible. This is an important feature for readers making it possible to get direct access to the material without necessarily having to go via the library catalogue to retrieve the call number. A typical example will be that a collection is organised so that a reader can easily get directly from an article reference to...
Das Helmholtz Forum Forschungssoftware, welches gemeinsam von der Task Group Forschungssoftware des AK Open Science und dem HIFIS Software Cluster getragen wird, veranstaltete am 7. April 2022 ein Helmholtz Open Science Forum zum Thema Forschungssoftware. Die Veranstaltung wurde vom Helmholtz Open Science Office organisiert. Das virtuelle Forum widmete sich drei Aspekten beim offenen und nachhaltigen Umgang mit Forschungssoftware in der Helmholtz-Gemeinschaft: Policy, Praxis sowie Infrastrukturen und Tools. Die Veranstaltung war die zweite einer Reihe von...
