Knowledge Blog

The project extends existing blogging tools for use as a lightweight, semantically linked publication environment. This enables researchers to create a hub in the linked-data environment, that we call knowledge or k-blogs. K-blogs are convenient and straight-forward for authors to use, integrating into researchers existing work practices and tools. They provide readers with distributed feedback and commenting mechanisms. We will support three communities (microarray, public health and workflow), providing immediate benefit, in addition to the long term benefit of the platform as a whole. Additionally, this will enable a user-centric development approach, while showcasing the platform as the basis for next generation research publishing.
