The large-scale analysis of scholarly artifact usage is constrained primarily by current practices in usage data archiving, privacy issues concerned with the dissemination of usage data, and the lack of a practical ontology for modeling the usage domain. As a remedy to the third constraint, this article presents a scholarly ontology that was engineered to represent those classes for which large-scale bibliographic and usage data exists, supports usage research, and whose instantiation is… 
The largest scholarly semantic network...ever.
TLDR
The MESUR project's data aggregation and processing techniques including the OWL scholarly ontology that was developed to model the scholarly communication process are described to be the largest scholarly semantic network ever created.
Mining Scholarly Semantic Networks from the Web

  • Computer Science
    2008 12th International Conference Information Visualisation
  • 2008
TLDR
A practical architecture to construct a scholarly semantic network that integrates different scholarly entities such as researchers, papers, and keywords by taking into consideration ontological and web mining perspectives is proposed.
VIVO: A Semantic Approach to Scholarly Networking and Discovery
TLDR
This book provides an introduction to VIVO, a tool for representing information about research and researcher's scholarly works, research interests, and organizational relationships, and a platform for using the ontology to create and manage linked open data for scholarship and discovery.
Mining Digital Library Evaluation Patterns Using a Domain Ontology
TLDR
A clustering-based data mining process to identify research patterns in the digital libraries evaluation domain to highlight the expressive nature of DiLEO and underline the potential of clustering in the research activities profiling.
An exploration of the digital library evaluation literature based on an ontological representation
TLDR
The directions and the evolution of evaluation research for the period 2001–2011 are explored by studying the evaluation initiatives presented at 2 main conferences of the digital library domain, namely the Association for Computing Machinery and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (ACM/IEEE) Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL) and the European Conference on digital Libraries (ECDL).
MESUR: usage-based metrics of scholarly impact
TLDR
The architecture and methodology adopted by the MESUR project are outlined, which will serve as the basis of a creating a large-scale semantic network that seamlessly relates citation, bibliographic and usage data from a variety of sources.
Integration and Warehousing of Social Metadata for Search and Assessment of Scientific Knowledge
TLDR
This paper discusses the opportunities and challenges of integration for the purpose of facilitating the discovery and evaluation of scientific knowledge, and presents a framework for integration and warehousing of both bibliographic and social scientific metadata.
Enhancing Metadata Assignment in a Digital Library with Background Knowledge
TLDR
The work proposed here aims to enhance knowledge cap-, a framework to encode the metadata about corpora and thereby automate information discovery at the finest levels of semantic granularity.
Towards usage-based impact metrics: first results from the mesur project.
TLDR
Some major challenges related to aggregating and processing usage data are described, and preliminary results obtained from analyzing the MESUR reference data set confirm the intrinsic value of scholarly usage data, and support the feasibility of reliable and valid usage-based metrics of scholarly impact.
Data, disciplines, and scholarly publishing
TLDR
A critical mass of datasets in public repositories, with links to and from publisher databases, is the most promising solution to maintaining and sustaining the scholarly record in digital form.

ScholOnto: an ontology-based digital library server for research documents and discourse
TLDR
The design rationale and implementation of ScholOnto is described, an ontology-based digital library server to support scholarly interpretation and discourse that enables researchers to describe and debate via a semantic network the contributions a document makes, and its relationship to the literature.
An architecture for the aggregation and analysis of scholarly usage data

    Proceedings of the 6th ACM/IEEE-CS Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL '06)
  • 2006
TLDR
A technical, standards-based architecture for sharing usage information is presented, made OAI-PMH harvestable so that usage information exposed by many linking servers can be aggregated to facilitate the creation of value-added services with a reach beyond that of a single community or a single information service.
The ABC Ontology and Model
TLDR
This paper describes the latest version of the ABC metadata model, a metadata model with more logically grounded time and entity semantics that is able to build a metadata repository of RDF descriptions and a search interface which is capable of more sophisticated queries than less-expressive, object-centric metadata models will allow.
OWL Web ontology language overview
TLDR
This document provides an introduction to OWL by informally describing the features of each of the sublanguages of OWL, the Web Ontology Language by providing additional vocabulary along with a formal semantics.
Grammar-based random walkers in semantic networks
Mapping the structure of science through usage
TLDR
Results indicate that meaningful maps of the interests of a local scientific community can be derived from usage data, and a comparison to maps resulting from the analysis of 2003 Thomson ISI Journal Citation Report data reveals interesting differences between the features of local usage and global citation data.
The Knowledge Model of Protégé-2000: Combining Interoperability and Flexibility
TLDR
This work describes ProtEgE-2000 knowledge model that makes the import and export of knowledge bases from and to other knowledge-base servers easy and demonstrates that it can resolve many of the differences between the knowledge models of ProtEe-2000 and Resource Description Framework (RDF)--a system for annotating Web pages with knowledge elements--by defining a new metaclass set.
