Tools and Technology for supporting scholars in their task of academic literature sense-making
This event took place on Monday 01 December 2003 at 13:00

ABSTRACT: Academics aim to construct knowledge claims about 'the world', position these claims within the accumulated knowledge of a particular discipline, and negotiate these claims within the expert community. Current information and communication technologies play an important part by enabling greater access to academic literature. However, there is currently not as much support for researchers in their analysis of academic literature, which is the critical underpinning of the scholarly activities listed above. Ongoing work in knowledge-based technologies provides insights into how technology might assist in scholarly analysis. My research aim is to formally represent the 'scholarly knowledge' in a particular research field and investigate the kinds of 'intelligent' services that might be provided to users in order to assist them in making sense of academic literature and mapping research domains. In this talk I will recap the progress I have made in the first year of my PhD research and outline a plan of action for achieving my aims for the remainder of my research.
