The Web was designed to improve the way people work together. The Semantic Web extends the Web with a layer of Linked Data that offers new paths for scientific publishing and co-operation. Experimental raw data, released as Linked Data, could be discovered automatically, fostering its reuse and validation by scientists in different contexts and across the boundaries of disciplines. However, the technological barrier for scientists who want to publish and share their research data as Linked Data… Expand
Towards Linked Data in Physics
TLDR
The principles of Linked Data are discussed in the context of publications on physics and examples of linking data in a branch of physics called quantum mechanics are presented. Expand
Towards Linked Research Data: an Institutional Approach
TLDR
A concrete case study from the domain of biology is implemented that releases optical motion tracking data of stick insect locomotion and this data is integrated into a unified linked data store and interlink it with additional data sources from inside the university and outside sources like DBpedia. Expand
Role of Content Analysis in Improving the Curation of Experimental Data
TLDR
Manual content analysis is proposed as an approach to streamline the data curator workfow and obtain domain-specific concepts used to describe experimental configurations in scientific publications to make it easier for researchers to understand the notion of metadata and for the development of metadata tools. Expand
Supporting Information Sharing for Re-Use and Analysis of Scientific Research Publication Data
TLDR
The initial evaluation results show that SKET can address relevant needs in the EMSE community and can be considered as a foundation for advanced tool ca- in this paper. Expand
From Linked Data to Concept Networks
TLDR
This paper introduces and discusses the notion of a concept network containing RDF links between entities from scientific publications, and presents a web tool supporting creation of concept networks. Expand
Flexible Integration and Efficient Analysis of Multidimensional Datasets from the Web
TLDR
This work presents four complementary contributions to query the global cube: a mapping between the common model of data cubes and QB to use existing OLAP engines for efficient queries over datasets from the Web, an algorithm to evaluate OLAP operations over data cubes using SPARQL queries over QB datasets for more flexible data integration based on RDF stores, and a method to optimise analytical query processing via materialised aggregate views in RDF. Expand
SMART Research using Linked Data - Sharing Research Data for Integrated Water Resources Management in the Lower Jordan Valley
TLDR
The IWRM domain is formalised in an OWL ontology; Linked Data and multidimensional modelling based on the RDF Data Cube Vocabulary is used to build a knowledge base with research data; and exploratory interfaces are presented on top of integrated I WRM data. Expand
Building an empirical software engineering research knowledge base from heterogeneous data sources
TLDR
The RKB process is introduced, which guides knowledge engineers in developing and using a knowledge base (KB) for the SKE process based on contributions from heterogeneous data sources, and shows promising results in the EMSE research context. Expand
A Natural Movement Database for Management, Documentation, Visualization, Mining and Modeling of Locomotion Experiments
TLDR
This work uses an example of comparative kinematics of climbing insects to propose a data format that is equally suitable for scientific analysis and sharing through web repositories, and uses a relational model and the Resource Description Framework to release data according to the Linked Data principles. Expand
Biomimetic and Biohybrid Systems
We present the design of a new two degree-of-freedom transmission intended for micro / meso-scale crawling robots which is compatible both with laminate manufacturing techniques and monolithic,Expand

Handbook on Ontologies
TLDR
The Handbook on Ontologies provides a comprehensive overview of the current status and future prospectives of the field of ontologies considering ontology languages, ontology engineering methods, example ontologies, infrastructures and technologies for ontology, and how to bring this all into ontology-based infrastructureures and applications that are among the best of their kind.
