Build and deploy a prototype infrastructure for making scholarly claims

The Scholarly Ontologies project is investigating new ways for distributed research communities to track and interpret their literatures. The ClaiMaker system enables researchers to make and contest 'Claims' by semantically connecting concepts. The resulting network of claims and arguments then supports novel forms of literature search and browsing.
