This paper considers how the concept of data provenance, developed in e-Science, can be applied to e-Social Science, specifically Evidence Based Policy Assessment. It considers what Evidence Based Policy Assessment is and what types of information can be used in such research. Quantitative and qualitative data and analytical/ interpretative approaches are(More)
The PolicyGrid project is exploring the role of Semantic Grid technologies to support eScience for the social sciences, with a particular emphasis on tools to facilitate evidence-based policy making. In this paper we highlight some of the key challenges facing developers of semantic infrastructure and tools for social science researchers. We outline a(More)
The PolicyGrid project is exploring the role of Semantic Grid technologies to support eScience for the social sciences, with a particular emphasis on tools to facilitate evidence-based policy making. In this paper we highlight some of the key challenges for the development of semantic esocial science and outline our approach for management of evidence. In(More)
In this paper we discuss how Social Semantic Web ideas can be used in an eScience context to deliver tools to researchers in the social sciences. We describe a virtual research environment (ourSpaces) built upon the use of social semantic web technologies. The environment employs an enhanced social graph representation (inspired by recent work on scientific(More)
In this paper we discuss how aspects of the Social Semantic Web can be used in an eScience context to deliver tools to researchers in the social sciences. We explain how user requirements led us to develop a hybrid solution involving use of ontologies and folksonomies in order to document the provenance of research resources, and to situate these within(More)
