The Semantic Web: what you need to know and why it’s important for your user community Terry Hulbert Director of Business Development American Institute of Physics XXIX Charleston Conference Charleston, SC 5 November 2009
Researchers are actually trying to avoid reading as much as possible during “discovery phase”, preferring instead to evaluate article “components”…indexing terms, related content, citations, and other “indicators of value” to isolate articles worth their “real” reading time.
“ Scientists skim journal articles to discover valuable information. They scan for terminology, segments, diagrams, and summaries of particular interest. But they don’t read individual articles left-to-right, top-to-bottom”
Allen H. Renear and Carole L. Palmer, Science 325 (5942), 828 (14 August 2009) doi: 10.1126/science.1157784
“ Reading” an online journal approximates a bookstore visit – a place to skim, flit, discover, fritter, twitter, connect, talk, be surprised, and socialize – but most of all, not to read too deeply during initial search and discovery mode .
