Author(s):Renear, Allen H.

Abstract:The long awaited emergence of high-function scientific publishing may, finally, be near. There will soon be the tools, structured data, and communication infrastructure that will allow researchers to use new and innovative strategies for taking advantage of computationally available representations of scientific information. As this happens, the use of traditional publishing artifacts like journals, abstracts and articles will be increasingly away from simply finding and reading and towards more direct and efficient computer-supported exploitation. Several important social and technological trends are converging to make this possible. We focus here on the role of standard domain ontologies and their potential for interaction with changing user behavior in search environments.
