Towards a Semantic Wiki for Science
Collaborative work environments for scientific knowledge have many applications in research as well as in education. Such systems already exist (e.g. Wikipedia and PlanetMath), but they do not offer all the services users would like to have. Starting from semantic markup of knowledge as a prerequisite for services like dependency management, intelligent navigation and search, and for knowledge reuse by web services, I work out why a semantic wiki is an appropriate platform for integrating these services and how to entice authors to contribute their knowledge into such a wiki by sharing the benefits of the services that exploit the knowledge with them.
