Abstract

With the rapid expansion of scientific research, the ability to effectively find or integrate new domain knowledge in the basic sciences is proving increasingly difficult. Although development of information systems to promote scientific discovery is being explored on a number of fronts, much of this work is based on traditional search and retrieval approaches and the bibliographic citation format remains unchanged. This paper presents the Telemakus system, in which aggregated citation information and content-based research findings are displayed in a conceptual schema and dynamic mapping provides graphical displays of research inter-relationships from documents across a domain. We describe a working implementation of a system designed to enhance the knowledge discovery process through graphical interaction tools to mine and map author-reported research findings and their associated methods.
