Abstract

This chapter presents a computer platform supporting a Marine Information and Knowledge System based on a repository that gathers, classify and structures marine scientific literature and data, guaranteeing their accessibility by means of standard protocols. This requires the access to quality controlled data and to information that is provided in grey literature and/or in relevant scientific literature. There exist efforts to develop search engines to find author's contributions to scientific literature or publications. This implies the use of persistent identifiers. However very few efforts are dedicated to link publications to data that was used, or cited in them or that can be of importance for the published studies. Full-text technologies are often unsuccessful since they assume the presence of specific keywords in the text; to fix this problem, it is suggested to use different semantic technologies for retrieving the text and data and thus getting much more complying results.

Background

The accessibility to information, management of knowledge and its dissemination to the public, has a long history. However, there were, and still there are, many weak points in the transmission of knowledge among scientific communities and from scientific communities to the public.
