Explanation of my Work

As part of my PhD I am currently doing some work related to myExperiment. This work is mainly to do with representing myExperiment data is RDF/XML format so that it can potentially be used in the Semantic Web and as part of QA system that is the centre of my PhD research.

I have developed a fairly sophisticated ontology for myExperiment, that reuses concepts from Dublin Core, FOAF and SIOC, as these ontologies are designed for the two main functions of myExperiment (i.e. a social networking framework and a metadata registry.

The myExperiment ontology also uses another ontology that I wrote entitled Simple Network Access Rights Management (SNARM). This is designed to allow the definition of flexible sharing policies for items with a simple framework of users and groups.
