Title: A Conceptual Model for Scholarly Research Activity
Author(s): Benardou, Agiatis; Constantopoulos, Panos; Dallas, Costis; Gavrilis, Dimitris
Subject(s): Scholarly information behaviour Conceptual modelling Digital curation Activity theory CIDOC CRM Cyberscholarship
Abstract: This paper presents a conceptual model for scholarly research activity, developed as part of the conceptual modelling work within the “Preparing DARIAH” European e-Infrastructures project. It is inspired by cultural-historical activity theory, and is expressed in terms of the CIDOC Conceptual Reference Model, extending its notion of activity so as to also account, apart from historical practice, for scholarly research planning. It is intended as a framework for structuring and analyzing the results of empirical research on scholarly practice and information requirements, encompassing the full research lifecycle of information work and involving both primary evidence and scholarly objects; also, as a framework for producing clear and pertinent information requirements, and specifications of digital infrastructures, tools and services for scholarly research. We plan to use the model to tag interview transcripts from an empirical study on scholarly information work, and thus validate its soundness and fitness for purpose.
