Scholarometer publishes crowdsourced data according to the basic principles of Linked Data. The aim is to make information about authors and disciplines based on citation analysis available on the Semantic Web.
Scholarometer assigns URIs (Uniform Resource Identifiers) to authors and disciplines. We implement an HTTP mechanism called content negotiation in order to provide an HTML representation in addition to the RDF representation of a resource. Some example Linked Data URIs, taken from the Scholarometer dataset, are listed below.
Linked Data encourages interlinks between different data sources, which enable Semantic Web browsers and crawlers to navigate between them.
In Scholarometer, RDF links primarily point to the following data sets using the owl:sameAs property, which indicates that two URIs refer to the same thing:
DBpedia: a multi-domain ontology derived from Wikipedia
DBLP: bibliographic information about scientific publications
Freebase: an open-license database about millions of things from various domains
Opencyc: an open-license version of the Cyc Ontology
Linking from your HTML webpage or FOAF profile to Scholarometer data
If you are an author, then a URI may already have been created for you in Scholarometer. You can simply add a link from your webpage or FOAF profile to your impact data. If you are not in Scholarometer, don't worry; just install the Scholarometer browser extension and query yourself. We will then serve you the citation-based impact analysis and generate a URI for you.
The example below shows an RDF link from a FOAF profile to Scholarometer, which allows navigation from your profile to your impact analysis data.
