Research Notes

My distilled version of what we discussed is: Play the role of a data scientist from an agency, use a platform that supports the things below in item 2, and build an app that provides semantic search for NSF abstracts that allows decision makers to identify future scientific research needs.

My distilled suggestions for the recent excellent Data.gov meeting for Jeanne Holm were:

1. Add a data scientist to the Data.gov team to lead a community of data scientists from the agencies and non-government organizations in a new community.

2. Ensure that the new data.gov platform supports the sitemap and schema protocols with well-defined URLs for content, faceted search, and big data in memory.

3. Encourage the new developer community to build their own data.gov sites to become both publishers and consumers of data to support the new data scientist community above.

Google gives search a refresh: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702304459804577281842851136290.html?mod=WSJ_hp_mostpop_read

Schema.org: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schema.org

SemanticMedline: http://skr3.nlm.nih.gov/SemMedDemo/

Currently, the results from 35 PubMed searches (including a variety of disorders and drugs) are available to be processed. The 500 most recent citations (from the date of the search) are available for further processing by Semantic MEDLINE.

Question: How can I get this data. Ask Tom Rindflesch for it or you ask him for it?

I registered and found: https://www.research.gov/research-portal/appmanager/base/desktop?_nfpb=true&_eventName=viewQuickSearchFormEvent_so_rsr where one can download CSVs for 2007- 2010.

I see the Abstract column where some of the entries are chopped off mid-sentence. I thought you mentioned the data had a link to the actual abstracts and papers.  I do not find that link in this data

Questions: Is this the data to use?

So with tools like MindTouch, Digital Reasoning, SIRA, etc. with their APIs, one could flow these data into them and produce apps that do semantic internal (e.g. SemanticMedline) and external search (e.g. Google Sitemap and Schema.org).

Glosssary of TermsEdit section
AOR - Authorized Organizational RepresentativeEdit section

The administrative official who on behalf of the proposing organization or institution is empowered to make certifications and assurances, to commit the organization to the conduct of a project that NSF is being asked to support, and to guide adherence to various federal and agency  policies and grant requirements.

AwardeeEdit section

The Awardee is the organization or other entity that receives a grant and assumes legal and financial responsibility and accountability both for the awarded funds and for the performance of the grant-supported activity. NSF grants are normally made to organizations rather than to individual Principal Investigator/Project Director(s).

CFDA Number - Catalog of Federal Domestic AssistanceEdit section

The CFDA number is the program's id number in the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance, a government-wide compendium of Federal programs, projects, services, and activities that provide assistance or benefits to the American public. It contains financial and nonfinancial assistance programs administered by departments and establishments of the federal government. (http://www.cfda.gov)

co-PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR/co-PROJECT DIRECTOR (PI/PD)Edit section

One of the individuals designated by the grantee and approved by NSF, who will be responsible for the scientific or technical direction of the project. If more than one, the first one listed will have primary responsibility for the project and the submission of reports. All others listed are considered co-PI/PD, and share in the responsibility of the scientific or technical direction of the project. The term "Principal Investigator" generally is used in research projects, while the term "Project Director" generally is used in science and engineering education and other projects. For purposes of Research.gov, PI/co-PI is interchangeable with PD/co-PDA.

DUNS Number - Data Universal Numbering System NumberEdit section

The DUNS number is a nine-digit number assigned by Dun and Bradstreet Information Services. If your organization does not have a DUNS number, you may obtain one by calling Dun and Bradstreet at             (800) 333-0505      .

PasswordEdit section

A password is a 6-20 character string, containing at least one alphabetic and one numeric character. Passwords are not case sensitive. Additionally, you cannot reuse the last three passwords you have used. If logging in for the first time (or following a password reset), you will be prompted to reset your password.

PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR/PROJECT DIRECTOR (PI/PD)Edit section

One of the individual designated by the grantee, and approved by NSF, who will be responsible for the scientific or technical direction of the project. If more than one, the first one listed will have primary responsibility for the project and the submission of reports. All others listed are considered co-PI/PD, and share in the responsibility of the scientific or technical direction of the project. The term "Principal Investigator" generally is used in research projects, while the term "Project Director" generally is used in science and engineering education and other projects. For purposes of this Guide, PI/co-PI is interchangeable with PD/co-PD.

Program Officer (PO)Edit section

Program Officers conduct merit review of grant applications and recommend which projects should be supported by the agencies. They are considered subject matter experts and they often provide technical and programmatic advice. Carrying out these responsibilities requires a thorough intellectual understanding of the specialty and knowledge of its substantive technical issues, as well as knowledge of the agency's processes.

Received DateEdit section

Date that the grant application was received by the agency.  For applications received through Grants.gov, this date is when the AOR pressed the "Sign & Submit" button. 

Sponsored Project Office (SPO)Edit section

The Sponsored Projects Office is the institutional office responsible for reviewing, endorsing and submitting all grant applications to extramural sponsors for research, training and public service projects.

Research Spending & Results

Research Spending & Results gives the public, the scientific community, and Congress insight into federally funded research. Research Spending & Results provides information about how federal research dollars are being spent, what research is being performed, and how the outcomes of research are benefiting society as a whole. Anyone can easily access, search, and sort information in new ways through Research.gov. Currently, information is available for NSF and NASA awards.
