What is Research Graph?

Research Graph is an open collaborative project that builds the capability for connecting researchers, publications, research grants and research datasets (data in research). We are building a toolbox that includes the graph metadata model, open source tools that transform the connections to a graph database, and cloud-based mash-up services that connect the graph databases across multiple platforms.

Research Graph model was initially formed as part of the Research Data Switchboard project as a graph modelling method to transform ANDS RIF-CS metadata records to nodes and relationships in a Neo4j graph database. Since March 2014, RD-Switchboard is lead by the DDRI Working Group in Research Data Alliance. The working group had input from a number of international partners such as AND, Dryad, CERN, da|ra, Elsevier, figshare, NCI, RMIT University and the University of Sydney.

How does it work?

Research Graph model is derived from the RD-Switchboard inference engine that is designed to connect datasets across multiple platforms by co-authorship or other collaboration models such as joint funding and grants. There are four main registry objects in the Research Graph schema including researcher, grants, publications and research data (data in research). As part of the Research Graph project, we are working with our collaborators to link these object across research institutions, national or domain specific research data infrastructures and funding agencies.
