Integrating Scholarly Argumentation, Texts and Community: Towards an Ontology and Services

Abstract - This paper reports work in progress on an ontology-based approach to modelling the argumentative discourse, texts and community in an academic domain in order to support semantic browsing and search. We describe how diverse research into these aspects can be integrated in an ontology, and step through an example of the kind of service that can be provided given such an integrated model of a research field. We also begin to explore mechanisms for enriching the ontology with the outputs of other CMNA research, such as Reed and Walton's argumentation scheme models.
