Wikidata for A new step forward mapping Italian library and information science journals


The paper describes the process of publication of the metadata of the articles published on in the period 2010-2019 as Linked Open Data on Wikidata. The aim of the publication was to improve the number of Italian Library and Information Science papers on Wikidata, after the upload of the metadata of the papers published on the Italian journal and to test new automatic tools for the publication process. OpenRefine was used to implement the process, as it allowed to upload metadata of different entities (journal, authors, names and family names of the authors, etc.) in sequential steps, and, in the last step, to upload the papers and all their relevant relationships. Metadata of two Italian LIS journals makes possible a few quantitative analyses on Italian scientific literature, by means of Scholia, a free Wikidata tool created for this purpose.

Keywords; Italian Library and Information Science Literature; Wikidata; Scholia; OpenRefine.
