Powell et al. Semantic Interoperability and the Creation of Journal Clubs Using Architectures for Semantic Interoperability to Create Journal Clubs for Emergency Response

By James E. Powell, Linn Marks Collins and Mark L. B. Martinez


In certain types of “slow burn ” emergencies, careful accumulation and evaluation of information can offer a crucial advantage. The SARS outbreak in the first decade of the 21 st century was such an event, and ad hoc journal clubs played a critical role in assisting scientific and technical responders in identifying and developing various strategies for halting what could have become a dangerous pandemic. This research-in-progress paper describes a process for leveraging emerging semantic web and digital library architectures and standards to (1) create a focused collection of bibliographic metadata, (2) extract semantic information, (3) convert it to the Resource Description Framework /Extensible Markup Language (RDF/XML), and (4) integrate it so that scientific and technical responders can share and explore critical information in the collections
