Semantic Scholarly Publishing and Discourse: Tools for Modelling Contested Knowledge Domains (16 Apr 2004)
In 2010, will research still be published primarily as prose? This question is designed to focus imagination on a complementary infrastructure that is 'native' to the network paradigm, enabling new kinds of knowledge dissemination, peer review, debate, and analysis of ideas. In this talk I report on the progress of the Scholarly Ontologies project, which has been building an environment to enable analysts to model the contested claims and arguments in a field. End-user communities that we are targetting include students, educators, researchers, consultants, librarians and publishers, working individually or collaboratively. I describe the rationale behind the underlying discourse representation scheme, user interfaces designed to deliver a semantic annotation environment that is usable by people who are not ontology engineers, and the new kinds of search and visualization services that become possible when a research field is rendered as an argument network.
