Our publication about “A Search Interface for Researchers to Explore Affinities in a Linked Data Knowledge Base” at this year International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2013) described the research work of our PhD-students Laurens and Selver. The application is called ResXplorer and can be tested here.
Research information is widely available on the Web. Both as peer-reviewed research publications or as resources shared via (micro)blogging platforms or other Social Media. Usually the platforms supporting this information exchange have an API that allows access to the structured content. This opens a new way to search and explore research information. In this paper, we present an approach that visualizes interactively an aligned knowledge base of these resources. We show that visualizing resources, such as conferences, publications and proceedings,expose anities between researchers and those resources. We characterize each anity, between researchers and resources, by the amount of shared interests and other commonalities
