Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper presents a set of models and an extensible social web platform (namely, Knowledge Spaces) that supports novel and agile social scientific dissemination processes. Knowledge Spaces is based on a model for structured, evolving, and multi-facet scientific resources that allows the representation of structured, evolving, and multi-facet scientific knowledge and meta-knowledge, of effective "viral" algorithms for helping scientists find the knowledge they need, and of interaction metaphors that facilitate its usage.
