SINN01 - First International Technical Workshop
of the project
SINN - Searchengine Network in the International
Natural Science Network
Eberhard R. Hilf; Institute for Science Networking, Oldenburg, Germany
- the Charter and the international
partners of PhysNet
The concept of distribute-and-collect
- Distributed Document Databases at the Physics Departments and Institutions
- Distributed local, regional or national gatherers
(for administrational information anddocuments)
- Distributed service providers (brokers): the SINN01-topic
- Distributed workforce for add-on services and development
The history of PhysNet
Started as service for EPS by Eddy Lingeman.
- Concept of distributed services by ERH (Physics) and M. Grötschel
(Mathematics) at the Meeting in Halle
- Installation for EPS in 1995
- Development of
Links and services
Details of Usage
has been set up to set the frame for an unbiased
of a multitude of institutes, departments, national societies.
The appeal of the charter has been nicely demonstrated by S. Krashakov and L.
- those who signed do participate in developing the concept,
- have to name a responsible person,
- have to name an operator,
- have to introduce the usage of metadata for documents to be funneled into
PhysDoc. A Web-Uploadform
is offered to ease this.
- have to name a stable URL for the departments homepage,
- create a stable document list of local document lists to be included into
- get the reward of influencing the future of PhysNet ingredients,
- get the reward of getting wider read and retrieved worldwide,
- get the reward of automatic being inlcuded into the OAi distributed
metadata-using document and service provider network, - without having to
fullfill their regulations.
- get the reward to contribute constructively to the Physics as a science.
had been prepared for Mathematics,
with the IMU International Mathematical Union as a partner.
IMU wants to negotiate with IUPAP.
Technical cooperation takes place on metadata and PACS/MSC classification and
search query splitting.
IUPAP at its LTADDP conference Nov. 2001 has included in its proposition for
recommendations the endorsement of PhysNet of EPS.
PhysNet is the only
distributed physics service using the local institutions document data bases.
the Information and Communication Initiative of the German Learned
Societies, has set up workgroups on metadata and e-journals.
works on 'Networking of fieldspecific services.
It serves e.g. collections on Open Archive Initiative OAi,
Copyright, and input forms for departments.
Lists of field-specific services are found at
