Publication: Dataset Descriptions for the Open Pharmacological Space

This is a specification for the metadata to described datasets, and the linksets that relate them, to enable their use within the Open PHACTS discovery platform. The specification defines the metadata properties that are expected to describe datasets and linksets; detailing the creation and publication of the dataset. Details of deploying dataset descriptions and an Read more about Publication: Dataset Descriptions for the Open Pharmacological Space[…]

Open PHACTS guidelines

We now have two sets of public guidelines about Open PHACTS for data providers. Guidelines on exposing data as RDF in Open PHACTS. These guidelines are a “how to” guide for data providers who want to expose their data as RDF in the Open PHACTS platform. Dataset Description for the Open Pharmacological Space These dataset and linkset specifications are intended Read more about Open PHACTS guidelines[…]

Open PHACTS releases first nanopublication guidelines

The Open PHACTS consortium has put together a set of guidelines on nanopublications. A nanopublication is the smallest unit of publishable information: an assertion about anything that can be uniquely identified and attributed to its author. The Open PHACTS project plans to use nanopublications in its Open Pharmacological Space (OPS) tool; the OPS will use Read more about Open PHACTS releases first nanopublication guidelines[…]

Press Release: Open PHACTS releases nanopublication guidelines

(PDF) Aims & Scope of this Guidelines This document outlines the relationship between the Open PHACTS System (OPS, see http://www.openphacts.org/) and a semantic data model called nanopublications. The primary aim is to define the format and organisation of nanopublications suitable for inclusion in OPS. This document also clarifies the relationship between nanopublications and “standard RDF” Read more about Press Release: Open PHACTS releases nanopublication guidelines[…]
