Heather Staines leads you on adventures across the web to show how she created over 100,000 annotations with Hypothesis.
2017 was a landmark year for Hypothesis and open annotation. Catch up on a year's worth of annotation news and learn more about the latest progress in our mission to enable a conversation over the world's knowledge.
Editors, reviewers and scholars are recognizing the potential for open annotation to streamline and improve traditional forms of peer review and create a framework for new review practices.
Join the conversation connecting FAIR data to digital annotation at the second annual Annotating All Knowledge Coalition face-to-face meeting, co-located in Berlin with FORCE2017.
With support from the Hypothesis Open Annotation Fund, the TextThresher team has developed software that allows researchers to enlist citizen scientists in the complex annotation of large bodies of text.
Qualitative Data Repository Teams with Hypothesis to Develop Annotation for Transparent Inquiry (ATI)
Originally published 12 May 2017 on the QDR blog by Sebastian Karcher. Scholars are increasingly being called on – by journal editors, funders, and each other – to “show their work.” Social science is only fully understandable and evaluable if researchers share the data and analysis that underpin their conclusions. Making qualitative social science transparent [...]
Originally posted at Pundit by Francesca Di Donato The diffusion and the public endorsement of data FAIRness has been rapid. The FAIR Data Principles were were published in late 2014 and early 2015. In 2015 at their summit in Japan, the European Council and the G7 adopted Open Science and the reusability of research data as a priority, [...]
We are excited and honored to announce that digital pioneer Esther Dyson will deliver the opening keynote at I Annotate this year in San Francisco on Thursday morning, May 4, 2017. Across her multifaceted career, Dyson has engaged deeply in the fields where annotation thrives, including education, journalism, publishing, research, science, and technology. This year’s I Annotate themes of fact checking, digital literacy, and user engagement connect directly to her experience. “I’m especially excited to speak at I Annotate,” says Dyson, “I started my career as a fact-checker for Forbes magazine and have a longtime passion both for the truth and for freedom of speech.” Dyson was also an early investor in Flickr, which pioneered web based image annotation, and social tagging company Del.icio.us, which give her an intimate familiarity with the technical goals and user benefits that an interoperable annotation paradigm can bring.
Yesterday, the scholarly communication + AI startup Meta signed an agreement to be acquired by the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI). Aside from the initial news a few weeks ago and Joe Esposito’s article in the Scholarly Kitchen, I’ve seen few people remark on it. But it’s a big deal. A serious piece of scholarly infrastructure is being made open, free and effectively non-profit. Meta has built a cutting edge system to mine scholarly papers new and old, and allow the data to be employed in diverse ways–predicting discoveries before they’re made, projecting the future impact of papers just hours old, and unlocking the potential for innumerable applications applying computation at scale across scientific literature. In what must have taken extraordinary patience, persistence and a lot of finesse, they managed to secure access to some of the most strategic closed content in the scholarly world.
Join us for I Annotate 2017, the fifth annual gathering dedicated to advancing digital annotation practices and technologies. With events in San Francisco during 3-6 May, I Annotate will continue to expand the annotation community to include more participants from education, journalism, publishing, research, science, and technology, focusing on themes of fact checking, user engagement, and digital literacy.
