  • Application Service Quality

    This chapter considers the service offered by applications to end users and the metrics used to characterize the quality of that service. A handful of common service quality metrics that characterize application service quality are detailed. These user service key quality indicators (KQIs) are considered in depth. A simple cloud-based application with a pool of frontend components distributing work across a pool of backend components is illustrated. The chapter then focuses on two high-level application service boundaries: Application's customer facing service (CFS) boundary and Application's resource facing service (RFS) boundary. While different applications offer different functionality to end users, the primary service KQIs across the application's customer facing service boundary for end users of applications generally include one or more of the following: service availability; service latency; service reliability; service accessibility; service retainability; service throughput; service timestamp accuracy and application specific service quality measurements.

    Citation analysis--the exploration of reference patterns in the scholarly and scientific literature--has long been applied in a number of social sciences to study research impact, knowledge flows, and knowledge networks. It has important information science applications as well, particularly in knowledge representation and in information retrieval. Recent years have seen a burgeoning interest in citation analysis to help address research, management, or information service issues such as university rankings, research evaluation, or knowledge domain visualization. This renewed and growing interest stems from significant improvements in the availability and accessibility of digital bibliographic data (both citation and full text) and of relevant computer technologies. The former provides large amounts of data and the latter the necessary tools for researchers to conduct new types of large-scale citation analysis, even without special access to special data collections. Excit ng new developments are emerging this way in many aspects of citation analysis. This book critically examines both theory and practical techniques of citation network analysis and visualization, one of the two main types of citation analysis (the other being evaluative citation analysis). To set the context for its main theme, the book begins with a discussion of the foundations of citation analysis in general, including an overview of what can and what cannot be done with citation analysis (Chapter 1). An in-depth examination of the generally accepted steps and procedures for citation network analysis follows, including the concepts and techniques that are associated with each step (Chapter 2). Individual issues that are particularly important in citation network analysis are then scrutinized, namely: field delineation and data sources for citation analysis (Chapter 3); disambiguation of names and references (Chapter 4); and visualization of citation networks (Chapter 5). Sufficient echnical detail is provided in each chapter so the book can serve as a practical how-to guide to conducting citation network analysis and visualization studies. While the discussion of most of the topics in this book applies to all types of citation analysis, the structure of the text and the details of procedures, examples, and tools covered here are geared to citation network analysis rather than evaluative citation analysis. This conscious choice was based on the authors' observation that, compared to evaluative citation analysis, citation network analysis has not been covered nearly as well by dedicated books, despite the fact that it has not been subject to nearly as much severe criticism and has been substantially enriched in recent years with new theory and techniques from research areas such as network science, social network analysis, or information visualization.

  • Could You Be Clearer? An Examination of the Multiple Perspectives of Clarity

    Despite the unanimity of opinion on clarity, few experts recognize the important, complex factors that affect readers and writers' perceptions of clarity. This chapter examines three of the most important such factors: precision, document accessibility, and corporate language context. Each factor is defined and examined in terms of its influence on clarity. The result is a better understanding of the multiple factors we need to consider before we pass judgment on a document's clarity. Accessibility involves making information available to a broad array of readers-technical elite, and administrative, managerial, and bureaucratic masses. Writers who understand corporate language context know that in order to function they must use accepted corporate language patterns in their day-to-day activities.

    This is the second book based on the 5S (Societies, Scenarios, Spaces, Structures, Streams) approach to digital libraries (DLs). Leveraging the first volume, on Theoretical Foundations, we focus on the key issues of evaluation and integration. These cross-cutting issues serve as a bridge for those interested in DLs, connecting the introduction and formal discussion in the first book, with the coverage of key technologies in the third book, and of illustrative applications in the fourth book. These two topics have central importance in the DL field, allowing it to be treated scientifically as well as practically. In the scholarly world, we only really understand something if we know how to measure and evaluate it. In the Internet era of distributed information systems, we only can be practical at scale if we integrate across both systems and their associated content. Evaluation of DLs must take place atmultiple levels,so we can address the different entities and their associated measur s. Thus, for digital objects, we assess accessibility, pertinence, preservability, relevance, significance, similarity, and timeliness. Other measures are specific to higher-level constructs like metadata, collections, catalogs, repositories, and services.We tie these together through a case study of the 5SQual tool, which we designed and implemented to perform an automatic quantitative evaluation of DLs. Thus, across the Information Life Cycle, we describe metrics and software useful to assess the quality of DLs, and demonstrate utility with regard to representative application areas: archaeology and education. Though integration has been a challenge since the earliest work on DLs, we provide the first comprehensive 5S-based formal description of the DL integration problem, cast in the context of related work. Since archaeology is a fundamentally distributed enterprise, we describe ETANADL, for integrating Near Eastern Archeology sites and information. Thus, we show how 5S-based mode ing can lead to integrated services and content. While the first book adopts a minimalist and formal approach to DLs, and provides a systematic and functional method to design and implement DL exploring services, here we broaden to practical DLs with richer metamodels, demonstrating the power of 5S for integration and evaluation.

  • Web Accessibility for People with Disabilities: An Introduction for Web Developers

    There are four main categories of disabilities that affect a person's ability to use the web: mobility, including inability to operate a keyboard/mouse; deaf including diminished hearing; blind, including partial vision; and disability associated with cognition and learning. This chapter overviews the major aspects of the web-accessibility issue for web developers. First, it explains the benefits of making sites accessible: increased readership and the ability to take advantage of new technologies as they are introduced. Next, it explains some of the major reasons web developers offer for not making their sites accessible. Then, the chapter reviews the relevant laws regarding web access, focusing on the Americans with Disabilities Act, and discusses efforts being made by Microsoft and the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and others, to encourage accessibility. Finally, it describes major resources that web developers might consult to assist them in making their sites accessible to people with disabilities.

  • When They Are Your Big Data: Participatory Data Practices as a Lens on Big Data

    The September 2014 post details a tension between the practice of self- quantification or self-tracking, and inaccessible, corporate-owned data streams. This tension, long present in debates about privacy and accessibility (Shilton 2012), is drawing a critical mass of attention as two (related) phenomena converge: more consumers are using personal fitness devices and self-tracking applications, and personalized health data are gaining prominence as a topic of scientific investigation.
