Welcome to WissKI

We are glad that you found your way to the new WissKI website. In the following sections we introduce you to the Virtual Research Environment "WissKI" and give you any information you need to use WissKI for your own purposes. Furthermore this website is meant to bring together all WissKI users and developers to exchange experiences. WissKI is a German acronym for "Wissenschaftliche KommunikationsInfrastruktur", which can be translated as "Scientific Communication Infrastructure". It is a Virtual Research Environment (VRE) for managing scholarly data that is completely open source and free to use. Based on Drupal WissKI is a flexible tool for data collections that enables researchers to work simultaneously from different places. WissKI provides benefits of the semantic web technology while supporting simple and common input interfaces. The semi-automatic text annotation is one of its core features. We developed a software system that enables scientific projects especially in memory institutions (museums, archives, libraries) to collect, store, manage and communicate knowledge. Therefore it addresses many facets of research in a network environment like persistence of information, long-time preservation and accessibility, digital documentation standards and e-publishing.

WissKI was initially a joint venture featuring three partners from different institutions and scientific domains: The Digital Humanities Research Group of the Department of Computer Science at the Friedrich-Alexander-University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU), the Department of Museum Informatics at the Germanisches Nationalmuseum (GNM) in Nuremberg and the Biodiversity Informatics Group at the Zoologisches Forschungsmuseum Alexander Koenig (ZFMK) in Bonn. Software development was primarily funded by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG) from 2009 to 2012 and from 2014 to 2017.

  • Writing a useful essay is tough even for the most experienced writers. It is an incredibly intelligent study by which you will not only develop your writing skills but your significant reading and study skills as well. Start by reading the topic you plan to use as your viewpoint. Take note of powerful opinions, thoughts, and support. Clear, brief notes about this part will help when using this text as a lens and while writing your last essay, so be sure your data is correct. Learn the other work once, forming an entry of its relevant details.

  • The Wagner Triangle is named after its famous creator, Sarah Wagner. The phenomen occurs mainly whenever a semantic model is extended and not remodelled due to acute lazyness of the modelling person. Furthermore it occurs when a subform is talking about a specific use of a thing in a certain context, however connects the context to the thing itself. It is a special problem with semantic modelling in WissKI due to the disambiguation feature of WissKI that specifically clears which concept in a certain path through the ontology is the target of the path.
