Elsevier’s OA-only RSS feeds

Interesting. Elsevier now offers a per-journal (the wildcard *, below) RSS feed that only contains links to new open access articles. Seems to be available for hybrid journals only. Looks like a step in the right direction? One could presumably plug these RSS feeds into a Google index-able rolling list of some kind?


Ten things learned from the “Group test: repository search” post

So, what was learned from yesterday’s Group test: repository search?

1. Finding PhD theses by using a Google based search tool is currently not an easy task, even when the tool limits Google to academic repositories. Are you trying to discover if someone has already written a PhD on your brilliant new idea for a PhD or book topic? Then don’t expect a small flock of related open access PhD theses are going to tumble into your lap(top) via a Google search. If your topic idea is in a fairly obscure and little-covered nook, then you’re going to have to dig. (Advice from others via social media may help somewhat, but probably can’t be relied on to be fulsome and comprehensive, and asking the questions required may risk giving away your precious topic idea.)

2. The Google Search trick of adding “submitted in” to help surface full-text theses does work, after a fashion. It’s clunky and cringe-inducing, admittedly. One might use it in conjunction with other commonly used title page items such as “requirements for * degree” or simply “supervisor” etc, which would help weed out government reports, project pages and calls for research. Such a search might usefully jettison filetype:pdf and thus roam freely across PDF, DOC, HTML and TXT.

3. Google has a titling problem with repository PDFs, even well-formatted thesis documents, in terms of extracting the title and using it as as the URL anchor text. Google appears to rank a search result higher when its system can be certain that the title of the article is known. That is no doubt a fine service for mainstream “I only look at the first ten links” end users, but it also has the side effect of masking the problem. The problem becomes very evident by the second page of a narrow search using a Google-based repository search tool, when laughable link titles such as “View/Open” and “thesis.pdf” can appear. Some repositories are finally becoming a little more Google-friendly, which may start to improve such matters. But the problem may also be one of the sheer volume of PDFs Google needs to process through an automatic metadata identification and extraction tool, as well as one of having clean Google-friendly site-maps from repositories.

If governments were to mandate not just OA, but full Google compliance by OA repositories, then I suspect that might help matters enormously?

Doubtless Google search scientists continue to work hard on automated document title inference, and future tweaks to Google’s growing machine intelligence may suddenly solve this problem. Though the situation for JURN has improved dramatically over the last six years, even without assistance from advanced kitten-trained uber-bots.

4. On the evidence of this group test alone, there seems little overlap between the PhDs listed on Summon and those to be found via OpenDOAR / GRAFT / Google Search / Scholar. This also seems true of OAIster and the British Library PhD search (I see the latter now has a useful OA indicator icon alongside results, and has generally become much more usable). So the standard advice that people need to cover multiple search tools to conduct a decent literature search remains good advice, and seems especially pertinent to those who operate outside of academia or large corporations.

5. Microsoft Academic does not seem to be returning searches based on an indexing of the full-text.

6. Impressive claims made about the size of FreeFullPDF seem to be overstated. For this search it could only return 32 results.

7. $14.6 million has been spent by the EU on the OpenAIRE portal, and yet it has consistently performed very poorly on JURN’s other group tests. But on this test it actually proved useful. It found two good theses on the microbial aspects of Arctic permafrost methane cycling, which no Google-based tool could surface.

8. Masters and undergraduate dissertations are commonly confused with each other and with PhD theses, in search results. This is the case even with Summon’s “Disserations” facet, which appears to jumble undergraduate / Masters / PhD work into the same search results. Presumably it’s just not worth the grunt work needed to sort and tag them by type, especially since a humble one-year Masters dissertation is often aggrandised by referring to it as a thesis.

9. There seems to be huge scope for a small field, such as Film Studies, to build its own hand-crafted curated index of open access PhD theses. (Tip: look at WordPress for that, not Omeka. In my view Okema is not yet suitable for such tasks, having recently used it myself to build a catalogue of local natural history publications).

10. Finally, I might note that it’s curious that there has apparently been so little PhD thesis activity on the topic since 1980, given the huge commercial and political interest in gas hydrates. It’s perhaps understandable that some exploration / energy sector theses would be commercially sensitive, and thus not available. But a comparison search of Summon suggests that’s only the case in a handful of theses. A search of OAIster for the super-wide search methane arctic also gives a mere 15 theses/dissertations in English, six of those being on prehistoric time periods. Given all the unknowns around frozen hydrates, including the environmental impacts, one would have expected to have discovered a wave of theses on frozen hydrates and the environmental interactions. Perhaps it is simply too expensive for grad students to travel to the permafrost Arctic for weeks of work, though there are said to be many grants available for anything related to global warming in the Arctic. Or do grad students in the field simply prefer to publish in group expedition reports and co-authored journal articles? Maybe my thinking is just too individualistic, since I come from the humanities, and I am not sufficiently in tune with the collectivised nature of modern science? Perhaps that’s so, but then that should not have prevented individual PhDs on hot topics such as: the geopolitical dimensions of arctic hydrates; world energy security futures; industrial extraction methods; international policy and treaties; or the ‘poster child’ use of permafrost hydrates in the rhetoric around global warming. So I just note here the curious mismatch between the media coverage and the apparent lack of interest shown by graduate students.

Group test: repository search

Here’s a test of JURN’s new GRAFT search tool. The topic of Arctic methane hydrates seems an apt choice for testing repository search tools, since they are in the news — as a possible new fuel source, a potential greenhouse gas emitter (if permafrost melts), and a potential trigger for geo-political aggression by Russia — and yet are also likely to be discussed in repositories due to these various concerns.

Since repositories in aggregate are a vast pool into which to throw a simple keyword search, I’m focusing on PhD theses. I do this in a clunky way, by simply adding the phrase “submitted in” after the keywords. This is an unvarying part of the standard wording used somewhere in the first three or four pages of nearly all thesis PDFs in English, even if the PDF has had a university-branded cover page affixed by the repository. The stock phrasing used is either “submitted in partial fulfillment” or “submitted in fulfillment”, so the simpler phrase “submitted in” should pick up full-text PDFs that use either wording.

Further, I am specifically looking for post-1980 English-language theses that have modern-day Arctic frozen methane hydrates as a strong focus. So I discount ‘paleo-methane’ theses (methane hydrates in prehistoric time periods), theses on lab-only work or industrial chemistries, hydrate deposits elsewhere in the world, high atmospheric methane, or natural methane emitted seasonally from bogs and lakes (which, by definition, cannot be either permafrost or sea-bed hydrates).

So the search for this test is:

methane hydrates arctic “submitted in”

The addition of the keyword “permafrost” might have been useful in terms of trying to lock results to the high Arctic, rather than having them diverge to different locations (hydrates occur globally). But that would have omitted results disussing methane hydrates under the Arctic ocean.

JURN group test of repository search tools:
methane hydrates arctic “submitted in”

August 2015. Searching for post-1980 theses in English, on contemporary methane hydrates in the Arctic or Arctic coastal waters.
BASE 0   Zero from six results. Chose to “boost Open Access documents”.
PQDT Open 0   Zero from 13 results. Omitted “submitted in”, since this tool is designed specifically to “Find Open Access Dissertations and Theses”. All full-text theses in results, but nothing was specifically on the Arctic.
DART Europe (UK and European research theses) 0   Zero from one result. Omitted “submitted in” since this tool is designed specifically to find theses. The one result was on prehistoric time periods.
Digital Commons Network (aka Bepress.com) 0   Zero from four results. Top result “Atmospheric Ethane-Methane Relationship and Implications for the Arctic” called itself a thesis but actually proved to be an undergraduate Honours dissertation. To be fair to the DCN I then removed “submitted in” and re-tested. The first 30 results lacked focus but did yield three possible results (“Planning Ahead for the Commercial Development of Offshore Methane Hydrates”; “Arctic Energy Resources: Security and Environmental Implications”; and “Balancing the Deglacial Global Carbon Budget: The Hydrate Factor”), but these all proved to be journal articles.
Microsoft Academic 0   Zero results for a search including “submitted in”, suggesting Microsoft is indexing records and not full-text. Tried again, without “submitted in”. First 40 results yielded nine possibilities, after removal of ten duplicates. One was “404 Not Found”, and none proved to be theses. Microsoft Academic seems better suited to finding technical reports and conference papers, at least for this topic.
Google Scholar 1   Tested with an unmodified Internet Explorer, not logged in to Google. Excluded Patents. Checked first 40 results. Scholar veers strongly toward chemistry on this topic, but the No.1 result was labelled as a “book” from 2003, “Methane hydrate production from Alaskan permafrost” — the citeseerx.ist.psu.edu link for this timed out repeatedly. Investigation of this item via the main Google found it was a detailed Powerpoint. The other possibility in the first ten results proved to be a lab-based undergraduate honours dissertation. On the second page “Geophysical characterizations of fluid flow and gas-hydrate systems of the NW-Svalbard and SW-Barents Sea margins” was a possibility, but proved to be “404 not Found”. “Well engineering concepts to make methane gas hydrate exploitation affordable” was a thesis and a hit. A faint possibility titled “Oil & Natural Gas Technology” at egcfe.ewg.apec.org proved to be “404 Not Found”. Possible candidates on ocean sediments lacked any focus on the Arctic, or were Masters dissertations, or proved to be on prehistoric periods. The military futurist/policy dissertation “Engagement in the Arctic” proved to be a Masters, and did not focus on hydrates. The similar “Marine Corps Equities in the Arctic” military dissertation also proved to be a Masters, and was also not focused on hydrates.
CORE 1   Examined first 40 results. Top two results were two scientific Arctic cruise reports, both duplicates of each other. Several relevant journal articles and two theses were in the first ten results. The thesis “Formation processes of clathrate hydrates of carbon dioxide and methane” proved to be on the chemistry involved, and had no real focus on the Arctic. The No. 6 result was the thesis “Well engineering concepts to make methane gas hydrate exploitation affordable”, which gave a sound overview of the “perma frost land environment” in which exploitation would have to occur. As such, this was counted as a hit. No. 12 was also a thesis, “Thermoelastic properties of salt hydrates and implications for geological structures” but proved to be on chemistry with implications for the geology of the outer solar system. The third page yielded “Analysing recent spatial and temporal atmospheric methane variations using forward and inverse modelling”, but this thesis was on computer modelling of atmospheric methane levels. Another on “Methane in deep sea hydrothermal plumes” proved to be on Indian sub-sea seeps. “Scaling up of methane flux: a case study in the UK uplands” was of a thesis on a peat bog in North Wales which, despite its dismal climate, is not in the Arctic. The fourth page yielded only a Chemical Engineering thesis focused on the gases industry, “Multi-scale Analysis of Methane Gas Hydrate Formation”.
OpenAIRE ($14.6 million EU-funded portal) 2   Examined first 40 results. Omitted “submitted in”, then sorted by the “Thesis” and “Open Access” facets. First ten results produced three possibilities. “Microbial perspectives of the methane cycle in permafrost ecosystems in the eastern Siberian Arctic” was a hit. The second was about Indian sub-sea seeps. The third, “[The] … exchange of methane between wet Arctic tundra and the atmosphere [in] Siberia” proved to have no full-text available. The second page of ten results yielded a further three possibilities, of which “Methane-cycling microbial communities in permafrost … Western Canadian Arctic” was a hit. The others were a duplicate, and a thesis on Indian sub-sea seeps. The final 20 results had two possibilities, being tangential studies of the general biological methane production in the Arctic bogs.
Google Search 2   Used an unmodified Internet Explorer, not logged in to Google. Examined first 40 results. Google was confused by press reports, government reports, short research calls and project home pages. However, the first page of results did unearth the recent high-quality thesis “Numerical Investigations of the Fluid Flows at Deep Oceanic and Arctic Permafrost-Associated Gas Hydrate Deposits”, although this was mostly focused on the applied maths of the topic. The third page popped up the previously seen hit “Well engineering concepts to make methane gas hydrate exploitation affordable”. Correct use of the document title in results links proved to be especially poor on later results pages, suggesting Google may be ranking higher on results it knows to have correct titles. Possibilities on the fourth page were found to be Masters dissertations or had been seen and discounted in previous searches.
FreeFullPDF 2   Two from 32 results. (Google based. For a list see the results table at the foot of this article)
OpenDOAR 3   Examined first 40 results. (Google based. For a list see the results table at the foot of this article)

GRAFT: Global Repositories Access – Full-Text!


GRAFT : Global Repositories Access — Full Text!
| Your link to global search across all known repositories |

Tip: Add the phrase “submitted in” to find full-text theses.

A beta academic search tool from JURN. Index updated: August 2015.

“To graft” — to produce new hybrids by binding young twigs and buds into a mature rootstock.


I’m pleased to say that I’ve updated my global repository search tool, which came out in alpha in late 2009 and has been lurking over on the Guide page ever since. Of course JURN now also indexes the full-text at many of the larger American, European, UK and Commonwealth repositories, but that’s not ideal. Especially if you want keyword search of repository records and collection pages.

So the new GRAFT, as I’m calling it, is a Google search limited to a wide-spectrum sweep across the world’s repositories and archives. As such it’s still a bit “bare bones”, since it’s well known that Google doesn’t index many repositories very well, and if you have no ad-blocker installed then you may see Google’s ads. But it’s a vast improvement on the old retired 2009 version, and at some point I hope to get its URL-expanded spreadsheet form into a fully optimised curated CSE engine. For now, enjoy Google’s unbeatable relevance-ranking of results and blistering speed. Think of this as an open beta period — feedback is welcome. I’ll be running it in a group test soon, against OpenDOAR and other repository search tools.

A-Z of articles in the New Zealand Journal of History 1967-2013. This is just so that the Googlebot can get access to them, by getting it past the page’s fiendish javascript obfuscation. The A-Z may also save some New Zealand researchers a whole lot of tedious menu-expanding mouse-clicking. Note that the server is prone to time-outs, although that may just be a problem with my UK-to-NZ connection.
