Title:Ontologies and STM Publishing
Author(s):Renear, Allen H.
scientific publishing
scholarly publishing

Abstract:Two important technological trends are converging: 1) The first involves the change in researcher behavior that is occurring in response to the use of comprehensive indexing and navigation environments such as Google Scholar and SCOPUS. Researchers are developing new, almost sub-cognitive heuristics for locating, evaluating and using information on the web. 2) The second is the increased adoption of techniques for making scientific information interoperable, computationally processable and communally available. As this begins to happen, and is supported by the tools that allow users to exploit computationally available representations of scientific information, the use of traditional publishing artifacts like journals, abstracts and articles will become increasingly indirect.
