○Research Subject and Objectives

The information resources division is aiming to constructing an information hub associated with RIHN’s activities.

 

(1) Collecting and accumulating research resources (data and information etc.) and promoting usage of them.

Printed matters and the other achievements associated with activities of projects or the institute are collected, and release from RIHN Archives and institutional repository.

 

(2) Researches about information technology to promote RIHN’s activities

Novel information techniques or theories to contribute to activities of the institute are developed.

 

(3) Development of applications to use RIHN’s resources

Developing of a web application RIHN Portal (named Visual Keyword Map for Global Environmental Studies (Global Environmental Studies VKM)) is in progress. It will provide function to retrieve and to show the resources accumulated in the RIHN Archives and the database of metadata related to the global environmental studies.

○Progress and Results in 2019

Collection and accumulation of research resources

(Number of the registered into RIHN Archives in FY 2019)

bibliographic records: 323

objects: 52

electric data: 180

images: 0

 

(Activities about Institutional Repository in FY 2019)

Register count: 854

Download count: 41,258

View count: 17,860

 

(Total number of the registered into RIHN Archives as of 1st April)

bibliographic records: 9,100

objects: 3,276

electric data: 4,590

 

(Total count about Institutional Repository as of 1st April)

Registered items: 3,602

(including 2,753 items released for public)

 

Researches about information technology

The following seminars and lectures were held in FY 2019.

 

GIS Seminar for the Global Environment Studies 2019

Date: 26th August 2019

 

8th Seminar

Serious Game and Model Design on Social-Environmental Systems

Date: 4th September 2019

 

 

Development of applications
In collaboration with the NIHU project the portal site as an entrance to access Web information resources and databases inside of RIHN including RIHN Archives was developed through designing and constructing the user interface (UI), the Web API and the ontology. This portal site was named "Visual Keyword Map for Global Environmental Studies (Global Environmental Studies VKM)" and released as a trial (http://gesvkm.chikyu.ac.jp). In FY 2019, the keywords characterizing the project of Lifeworlds of Sustainable Food Consumption and Production: Agrifood Systems in Transition,  the project of the Sanitation Value Chain: Designing Sanitation Systems as Eco-Community-Value System and the project of Information Asymmetry Reduction in Open Team Science for Socio-environmental Cases were extracted, and icons about the keywords were created for the Global Environmental Studies VKM.

○Project Members

○Future Themes

(1) Collecting and accumulating research resources

The achievements associated with activities of projects or the institute will be collected and accumulated continuously. The titles of the achievements will be translated into English or Japanese and the DOI will be added to the achievements. 

(2) Researches about information technology to promote RIHN’s activities

Research outcomes will be shared in the seminars, and applied to the RIHN Portal (named Visual Keyword Map for Global Environmental Studies (Global Environmental Studies VKM)) and the databases in RIHN.

(3) Development of applications to use RIHN’s resources

The contents of the Global Environmental Studies VKM will be updated, and icons representing the characteristics of the current projects are newly designed.
