Published electronic media are becoming Grey

Kumazaki, Yui; Suzuki, Satoru; Kanazawa, Masashi*; Kunii, Katsuhiko; Yonezawa, Minoru; Itabashi, Keizo*

The Grey Journal; An International Journal on Grey Literature, 15(1), p.45 - 50, 2019/04

JAEA Library focuses on collecting conference proceedings and technical reports which are very important and referred materials for our users in the field of nuclear science and technology. There are an increasing number of cases that they are published in electronic media such as CD-ROM and flash memories. There are problems as to manage such electronic media in a library. Largest problems for electronic media would be the long-term preservation and permanent access. Lifetime of electronic media are much shorter compared with paper and/or microfilm. In this regard, the JAEA library is struggling to preserve electronic media including related PCs and software for a long-term. One of the effective countermeasure should be preserving PCs and software to browse, emulation and migration to another media. However, our countermeasure is not good enough for users and preservation. The authors would like to present JAEA Library's current activities on long term preservation and use of electronic media, and it comes to the conclusion the fact that even published electronic media are becoming grey literature in certain environment.

From 1987 to 2014, the Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDE) Program under the auspices of the International Energy Agency (IEA) had been carried out successfully with fruitful outcomes. ETDE had been able to be an excellent database for use in the general field of application of energy, including nuclear energy. ETDE could have deserved it, by extensively collecting the literature and providing the metadata worldwide, as well as by delivering and disseminating the bibliographic data, first to member countries, next additionally to the developing countries free of charge and finally all the world through the Internet free of charge as well. During all the days of ETDE Program Then ETDE had been very close and strong ties and cooperation with the International Nuclear Information System (INIS) Program under the auspices of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), e.g., by sharing and complementing many elements and parts of each database mutually. A portal site, the ETDE World Energy Base (ETDEWEB), for the database of ETDE, had been available for use to deliver and disseminate the valuable information of bibliography of ETDE, containing directions to the full text data, dedicated to satisfying the interest of end users worldwide. As of today, even if the addition of bibliographic data to ETDE has ceased since 2014, ETDEWEB itself has been available as before, maintained in great help of the Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) of the Department of Energy (DOE), US, while OSTI had been praised as the Operating Agent (OA) of ETDE Program from the commencement to the ceasing. This is a report containing several historical documents in regard with the ETDE activities worldwide kept and remained in Japan as records (minutes etc) at the side of JAERI.

Kunii, Katsuhiko; Itabashi, Keizo

JAEA-Review 2016-021, 130 Pages, 2016/10

JAEA-Review-2016-021.pdf:2.2MB

Under the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the International Nuclear Information System (INIS) Programme commenced in 1970 and ever since INIS has been acting as a database system available worldwide through information networks each time providing bibliographic information then full text documents of literature, technical reports, etc. on peaceful use of nuclear science and technology, thoroughly supported and maintained by INIS Secretariat in Vienna, on the other hand the inputs for INIS are provided by Member States and Organizations in their own boundaries. As for the INIS activity in Japan, while, the Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute (JAERI), then succeeded as the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) as of today, the both have been responsible with the INIS activity in Japan as the INIS National Centre for Japan based on the request of the "former" Science and Technology Agency of the Japanese Government, an advisory committee had have a very important role for the INIS activity in Japan by enthusiastically advising the whole related to the activity from advanced and comprehensive viewpoints of expertise. This report describes about it, the Advisory Committee of International Nuclear Information System (INIS) for Japan, successfully been held 34 times from Oct. 1970 to Mar 2005. Included are the history and its records, change of the member and topics of the Advisory Committee, and the minutes.

Enhancement of the functions of the Japan Atomic Energy Agency Library's Fukushima Nuclear Accident Archive using a novel data flagging system that improves the utilization of numerical data on the internet

Ikeda, Kiyoshi; Gonda, Mayuki; Nagaya, Shun; Hayakawa, Misa; Kunii, Katsuhiko; Mineo, Yukinobu; Yonezawa, Minoru; Itabashi, Keizo

Proceedings of 16th International Conference on Grey Literature (GL-16), p.139 - 145, 2015/03

The Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) Library has collected Internet information related the Fukushima Accident. We previously reported the development of the Fukushima Accident Archive using the DSpace in 15th International Conference on Grey Literature. We have encountered a new challenging issue grey literature. In many cases, Internet information contains valuable numerical data. However, it is difficult to identify the existence of numerical data in the Internet sites because numerical data is not often organized in a systematic manner on the web sites. We considered such method as to identify numerical data and attempted to introduce "data flagging" system, which was previously used in the International Atomic Energy Agency's International Nuclear Information System (INIS). In this presentation, we will introduce our "data flagging" system for numerical data on the Internet and how we apply the system to our Fukushima Accident Archive.

Potential of taxonomy to preserve and disseminate Fukushima accident information implemented by JAEA Library

Kunii, Katsuhiko; Itabashi, Keizo; Nagaya, Shun

International Journal of Nuclear Knowledge Management, 6(3), p.217 - 231, 2014/02

AA2013-0281.pdf:1.11MB

In regard to Fukushima Accident, it would be true that the concerned information has not been provided good enough for the affected people in and over Japan, for instance, as often being mixed, confused, too many to access or disappearing through the internet or websites. In this regard, necessary be to terminologically well line up ways to access such affected information, like a taxonomy, composed of semantically controlled terms on the related events forming lineage-like hierarchical structures. To come up with potential of the taxonomy to preserve and disseminate the affected information, described are preliminary view on its terminological aspects and availability of IAEA/INIS for the information implemented by JAEA Library. Remarks are that necessary be to make ever-new inexperienced aspects and terms derived from the affected information such as "beyond design basis" further detailed, scrutinised and involved in the both schemes, attributed to its taxonomical potential higher.

INIS-based Japanese literature materials of bibliographic tools for human resource development

Kunii, Katsuhiko; Gonda, Mayuki; Ikeda, Kiyoshi; Nagaya, Shun; Itabashi, Keizo; Nakajima, Hidemitsu; Mineo, Yukinobu

Proceedings of International Conference on Toward and Over the Fukushima Daiichi Accident (GLOBAL 2011) (CD-ROM), 8 Pages, 2011/12

The Library of the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) has developed two Japanese literature materials of bibliographic tools based on the International Nuclear Information System (INIS) of the IAEA which contains over 3.3 million records of 127 countries and 24 international organizations. These materials have been elaborated by appropriately designating Japanese terminology of nuclear field corresponding with English terminology or vice versa. One is "Transliterated Japanese journal title list" and the other is "INIS Thesaurus in Japanese". While the former is served as a reference that enables users to access articles of Japanese journals better matching their needs, the latter is served as a dictionary to bridge the gap on nuclear field terminologies between over 30,000 English terms and Japanese terms which correspond with those in a semantic manner. The application of those materials to the INIS's full text collection over 280,000 of technical reports, proceedings etc. as an archive is helpful for enhancement of human resource development. The authors describe the effectiveness of those INIS-based materials with bibliographic references of Fukushima Daiichi NPS accident.

Circulation improvement of articles in journals written in non-english languages; A Special journal titles translation list of journals written in Japanese for the international bibliographical database

Gonda, Mayuki; Kunii, Katsuhiko; Nakajima, Hidemitsu; Ikeda, Kiyoshi; Itabashi, Keizo; Koike, Akemi*; Igarashi, Ayumi*

Proceedings of 12th International Conference on Grey Literature (GL-12), p.113 - 117, 2011/00

Circulation of scientific information improves internationally today, and English which is "universal language" takes the leading part for scientific communication. On the other hand, non-English articles are still "gray literatures" due to language barriers though physical circulation improves as well as English articles. In the International Nuclear Information System (INIS) database operated by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), bibliographic information such as title and abstract etc. is written in English. This feature of the INIS database contributes to international circulation of scientific information of the nuclear field. However, titles of journals written by non-English language were described by transliterated Roman alphabet, non-native users cannot understand natures and subjects of journals written by non-English language. Non-native users cannot understand the nature of the journal with this journal title description, and then they fail to get the useful article. This language barrier should be broken through as soon as possible for circulation improvement of journals written by non-English language. So we develop a special journal titles translation list of journals written in Japanese for the INIS database, as attempt to improve circulation of articles in journals written by non-English language. We will release this list on the INIS database for circulation improvement of journals written by non-English language, and we will implement the list into the database for user's convenience in the future.

On risk assessment of energy production

Kunii, Katsuhiko

JAERI-Review 2005-021, 81 Pages, 2005/07

JAERI-Review-2005-021.pdf:3.34MB

Today we cannot ignore the risk of health and/or environment by energy production such as power generation since the risk has been made large enough. In this report an information survey has been done in order to know the outline and points of risk assessment. Based on the information of reports and literature about risk assessment, have been surveyed mainly the external cost assessment of power generation (in which quantification of health and/or environment risk has been done), in addition, risks of disasters, accidents, investments, finance etc. and impacts of those risks on social activities. The remarks obtained by the survey are as follows: (1) Some of external cost assessment of power generation show different results even if the assessment conditions of technology, site, etc. are mostly the same. It is necessary to remark on the information such as basic data, model, background, application limit of assessment considering the reliability. (2) Especially it is considered that the reliability of risk assessment is not enough at present because of the lack of basic data.

2 step mapping analysis of journals in nuclear science and technology

Kunii, Katsuhiko; Mineo, Yukinobu; Yonezawa, Minoru

no journal, , 

2 step mapping analysis which uses citation relations between journals has been used to evaluate journal collections, core journals of specific fields, etc. We report on the results of the analyses on journals of nuclear field listed in the Journal Citation Reports 2005, Science Edition (JCR). First, we analyzed journals in the nuclear science & engineering category of JCR and found that the most cited journal is the same journal mostly referred to by users of the JAEA library. In addition, we analyzed journals contained in nuclear specific database, INIS to evaluate journals in broad nuclear field including medicine, radiation application more than nuclear power. The second analysis has shown that the journals involved in are mostly categorized into two groups, medicine and physics.

Oral presentation

Collecting, storage, and usage of information resources about Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station Accident; Current status of the "Fukushima Nuclear Accident Archive"

Hayakawa, Misa; Kunii, Katsuhiko; Mineo, Yukinobu; Yonezawa, Minoru

no journal, , 

JAEA Library has been providing the "Fukushima Nuclear Accident Archive (FNAA)" to support R&D activities such as environmental recovery, or reactor decommissioning. Applying an access log analysis on FNAA, the trends figured out are access increases to the oral presentation and the ones of websites already closed, implying needs of the information toward the future.
