Paper Details:

This white paper illustrates the benefits of a Linked Data approach to entity registration in OIXnet and presents the Publish Trust Framework (PTF) pilot developed by the American Psychological Association (APA) to enable secure exchange, aggregation and validation of scholarly identity attributes and facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration in scientific communities. The APA pilot uses Semantic Web technologies, recently named by Gartner as one of the top ten strategic and disruptive trends for the near future, to leverage “OIXnet trusted” registration, develop reliable mechanisms for verifying scholarly identity, and backing authorship claims. The APA Trust Factor is computed on a core set of machine, environment, human and attribute variables and integrates data from attribute providers into a single score.
