Sloan Foundation</a>-funded initiative undertaken by: <em> Johns Hopkins University’s <a href="https://dataconservancy.org/" rel="nofollow">Data Conservancy</a> - a data curation organization </em> <a href="https://www.ieee.org/" rel="nofollow">IEEE</a> - the world’s largest technical professional organization and publisher of nearly a third of the world’s technical literature in electrical engineering, computer science, and electronics. * <a href="https://www.portico.org/" rel="nofollow">Portico</a> - the digital preservation service of ITHAKA</p> <p>The goal of the project was to produce a prototype framework that makes it possible to preserve the many-to-many complex relationships among scholarly publications and their underlying data, thereby supporting the continual development of scholarly communication and digital publishing. </p> <p>The RMap Project grant period began in April 2014 and ended in November 2017. </p> <h3>Proposal and introduction</h3> <p>Some useful introductory documentation for RMap is available in this project. </p> <p>The <a href="https://osf.io/zfb9e/" rel="nofollow">RMap Overview Document</a> and <a href="https://osf.io/xbsdu/" rel="nofollow">Press Release</a> provide short summaries of the project's intent. </p> <p>The original <a href="https://osf.io/c4p6d/" rel="nofollow">project proposal</a> goes into much more depth (note that early in the project the proposed name was "Matchmaker" - it was later renamed RMap). The <a href="https://osf.io/5hmdb/" rel="nofollow">final report</a> describes the key outcomes of the project.</p> <p>For an animated introduction to RMap, the <a href="https://osf.io/2swdv/" rel="nofollow">Introduction to RMap</a> video provides a simple overview. You can also <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0xCjScWbJs" rel="nofollow">watch this on YouTube</a>.</p> <h3>Live RMap website, code</h3> <p>At the time of publication, the first live beta instance of RMap is being hosted by the <a href="https://library.jhu.edu/" rel="nofollow">Sheridan Libraries at Johns Hopkins University</a> at <a href="https://rmap-hub.org" rel="nofollow">https://rmap-hub.org</a>. This instance of RMap was initially populated with over 680,000 records representing relationships related to articles published by IEEE. </p> <p>The code and technical documentation (e.g. API, installation, software stack) is being maintained in the <a href="https://github.com/rmap-project" rel="nofollow">RMap Project GitHub repository</a>.</p> <h3>Principal investigators</h3> <p>The PIs for the RMap Project were:</p> <ul> <li>Sayeed Choudhury, Associate Dean for Research Data Management, Johns Hopkins University, Sheridan Libraries</li> <li>Gerry Grenier, Senior Director, Publishing Technologies, IEEE, Inc.</li> <li>Kate Wittenberg, Managing Director, Portico</li> </ul> <h3>Other project team members</h3> <p>In addition to the project's PIs, the following team members contributed to the design, development, and documentation of RMap:</p> <ul> <li>Aaron Birkland, Senior Software Engineer, Johns Hopkins University, Sheridan Libraries</li> <li>Vinay Cheruku, Director of Content Management Systems, ITHAKA</li> <li>Tim DiLauro, Digital Library Architect, Johns Hopkins University, Sheridan Libraries</li> <li>Mark Donoghue, Content Management Analyst, IEEE</li> <li>Renny Guida, Director, Product Management, IEEE</li> <li>Karen Hanson, Research Developer, Portico / Software Engineer, Johns Hopkins University, Sheridan Libraries</li> <li>Amy Kirchoff, Archive Service Product Manager, ITHAKA</li> <li>Jim Martino, Senior Software Engineer, Johns Hopkins University, Sheridan Libraries</li> <li>Elliot Metsger, Senior Software Engineer, Johns Hopkins University, Sheridan Libraries</li> <li>John Meyer, Director of Data Technology, ITHAKA</li> <li>Kenneth Moore, Director, Book and Information Services, IEEE</li> <li>Sheila Morrissey, Senior Researcher, ITHAKA</li> <li>Stephanie Orphan, Director of Publisher Relations, Portico</li> <li>Ken Rawson, Manager, Publishing Systems, IEEE</li> <li>Joe Rogowski, Associate Director/Senior Project Manager, ITHAKA</li> <li>Hanh Vu, Software Engineer/Project Manager, Johns Hopkins University, Sheridan Libraries</li> <li>Jabin White, Vice President, Content Management, ITHAKA</li> </ul>
