Griffith Research Hub: Connecting an Entire University’s Research Enterprise
MetadataShow full item record
Universities are operating in a knowledge environment characterized by competition, collaboration, a diversification of research outputs and rapid technological change. Thus the use of linked data is rapidly gaining momentum, typically for educational resources, with research as a subset of this content. The Griffith Research Hub is focused specifically on exposing linked data for research. It provides a publicly accessible, single comprehensive view of Griffith University's research output and activities, including research publications, projects, datasets, centres, researchers and their collaborators. The Hub serves an ambitiously wide audience including higher-degree research students, researchers, industry and the media. Built in-house on open-source semantic-web technologies, the Hub draws data automatically from multiple enterprise systems and includes an edit interface for manual correction and enrichment of data. The Hub is the product of a partnership between Griffith University and the Australian National Data Service. Benefits of the Hub include powerful yet simple search and browse tools; generation of substantial web traffic; linked data that allows users to seamlessly discover related information in other services and databases (including Trove at the National Library of Australia); visualization features and the development of a shared ontology to describe research activities.
