Interfaces for capturing interpretations of research literature

Uren, Victoria; Sereno, Bertrand; Buckingham Shum, Simon and Li, Gangman (2003). Interfaces for capturing interpretations of research literature. In: Distributed and Collective Knowledge Capture (DC-KCAP) Workshop at 2nd International Conference on Knowledge Capture (K-CAP 2003), 23-25 Oct 2003, Sanibel island, FL, USA.



The ClaiMaker collaborative sense-making and annotation tools allow single users and groups to build and query hypertextual argument maps of research literatures. We describe the discourse ontology used by the system, and four design principles that were followed to make it usable for non knowledge engineers. We present several generations of capture interfaces showing how they are evolving to make ClaiMaker more accessible for novice users.
