Relations for Reusing (R4R) in a Shared Context:

An Exploration on Research Publications and Cultural Objects

Authors: Andrea Wei-Ching Huang and Tyng-Ruey Chuang

Abstract:

Will the rich domain knowledge from research publications and the im-plicit cross-domain metadata of cultural objects be compliant with each other? A contextual framework is proposed as dynamic and relational in supporting three dif-ferent contexts: Reusing, Publication and Curation, which are individually con-structed but overlapped with major conceptual elements. A Relations for Reusing (R4R) ontology has been devised for modeling these overlapping conceptual com-ponents (Article, Data, Code, Provence, and License) for interlinking research out-puts and cultural heritage data. In particular, packaging and citation relations are key for building up interpretations for dynamic contexts. Examples are provided for il-lustrating how the linking mechanism can be constructed and represented as a result to reveal the data linked in different contexts.

Keywords: citation, context, cultural heritage, curation, ontology, packaging, publication, R4R, research data, reuse, sharing
