Context of the work
Scientific publications are now searchable via various channels. Examples are Google Scholar and Mendeley. These tools facilitate retrieval, citation and sharing of scientific articles. Nevertheless, many questions remain unresolved, including automated processing of the (meta) data. Open Linked Data is an approach with which these data can be made accessible in a structured form.
Objective & Task
Based on the current developments of the Institute for Knowledge Management, a prototype will be developed in the context of a master thesis, with which the publication data can be published into a machine-readable and to web formats compatible form. Additionally, the publication data should be presented in a searchable web visualization. In the theoretical part of the thesis, the issue of visibility and awareness of research outputs (e.g. publications and citation-measurements) of a university should be discussed. In addition, the prototype should be evaluated in a small study.
