  journal={Proceedings of the 11th on Knowledge Capture Conference},
The use of semantic technologies is gaining significant traction in science communication with a wide array of applications in disciplines including the life sciences, computer science, and the social sciences. Languages like RDF, OWL, and other formalisms based on formal logic are applied to make scientific knowledge accessible not only to human readers but also to automated systems. These approaches have mostly focused on the structure of scientific publications themselves, on the used… Expand

Domain-Independent Extraction of Scientific Concepts from Research Articles
A set of generic scientific concepts that have been identified in a systematic annotation process are suggested and used to annotate a corpus of scientific abstracts from 10 domains of Science, Technology and Medicine at the phrasal level in a joint effort with domain experts. Expand
A proposal for the future of scientific publishing in the life sciences
A "publish first, curate second” approach with the following features would be a strong alternative: authors decide when and what to publish; peer review reports are published; and curation occurs after publication, incorporating community feedback and expert judgment to select articles for target audiences and to evaluate whether scientific work has stood the test of time.
