Abstract

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 scientific resources that allows the representation of 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. The concept and a preliminary implementation of Knowledge spaces, in their various forms and designs, are being exploited in several different pilots.
