Conceptual Foundations for the Scholarly Semantic Web: Requirements, Ontology, and Services
This event took place on Wednesday 19 July 2006 at 11:30

The Web has transformed the way new scholars are introduced to their domains via timely access to its literature. However, once that literature has been accessed, there is not as much support for carrying out analytical tasks such as determining the rhetorical stance of a
particular author in the scholarly domain. This paper presents work on an ontology-based approach to representing scholarly knowledge in order to support such analytical work. Here we describe how diverse research into argumentation, knowledge organization, and communities of practice has been used to ground the design of an ontology that enables novel kinds of services to be developed.
