Semantic description of scholar-oriented social network cloud

Social networks have experienced exponential growth in membership and have become a hotspot for research in recent years. It helps users manage relations by establishing new relations and maintaining existing relations. On the basis of social networks’ research, to encourage communication between scholars and facilitate management of academic information and academic relations, we built the Scholar-Oriented Social Network Cloud (SOSN) that is an academic information-centric social network. SOSN extracts academic information from various web sources on the Internet, and provides an application model for the social interaction and the semantic description of all related information. SOSN works as follows. Firstly, an academic search cloud is created that can provides academic search services according to users’ web context. Then SOSN extracts public academic information from various literature databases and search engines on the web using the academic extracting services; secondly, SOSN devises an application model in the domain of scholar social network, which is used to represent the complex relations of entities in the Scholar-Oriented Social Network Cloud; thirdly, based on FOAF (Friend of a Friend), MarcOnt ontology, FRBR (Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records) and SWAP (Scholarly Works Application Profile) academic semantic project, SOSN defines Scholar, AcademicWork, AcademicTeam ontology, etc. using RDF language according to semantic web technology and implements the semantic description of Scholar-Oriented Social Network Cloud.
