“This is a major technological breakthrough in data management, research impact analysis and user experience,” said Virginie Simon, cofounder and CEO at MyScienceWork. “A user friendly design is at the center of this new creation, MyScienceWork.”
PolarisOS offers an interface that meets the requirements of the new generation of institutional archives: a configurable and intelligent API Store as well as pay-per-view data models for recovering and transforming all types of data; an administrator console accessible to all for the implementation of the solution; and tools for analysis, valuation and visualization of research results.
“The additional value,” added Simon, “is the ability to control this data within an institution allowing a thorough analysis of projects and support for strategic decision-making.”
An interconnected solution
PolarisOS functions allow three avant-garde solutions. First, it integrates directly into research institutes existing ecosystems by recovering and exporting all types of data (scientific, technological, financial and managerial) to and from existing information systems on- or offline. Polaris can model this data, clean it up, and enrich it.
Second, each department has a common framework of access, whether it’s Research/Innovation, Communication, Library informatics, or another. In this way, previous compatibility issues will disappear.
Third, statistical sharing and retrieval functionalities provide a concrete solution to ubiquitous visibility, quotation/dissemination and impact measurement challenges.
An open source
An activist for open science since its inception, MyScienceWork has chosen to share the PolarisOS code on GitHub. This choice responds to the need for research institutes to have open, independent and sustainable solutions. In a constantly changing tech environment, the start-up believes in the importance of sharing knowledge.
In addition to Scientific Institution, PolarisOS is for: Library Management System, Research Data Repository, Multimedia Archive and Institutional Repository.
