Use of quantitative research ontology in e-science

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingAbstract

    Abstract

    This paper makes initial steps towards an ontology of quantitative research, in support of computer-aided scientific research. It identifies some key elements of the quantitative research process, outlines an ideal workflow, identifies further requirements and discusses how some of these aspects can be implemented for e-science. An implementation is sketched in which objects are related to the ontology and in which processes in the ontology can be initiated on objects. In addition, we report the application of an ontology of units of measure and related concepts, constituting a part of the concepts required in an ontology of quantitative research, in a unit and dimension consistency checking service, an example of a quantitative research service.
