Extending IST World database with Serbian research publications,
This paper describes an effort of using knowledge technologies to gain insights into research activity, by exploiting publicly available information on research publications. The specificity of this paper is extending the existing IST World database with information on Serbian research publications. We describe the process of information extraction applied in order to fill in the database, based on publication references obtained from the textual repository maintained by the Secretariat for Science of the Serbian Province of Vojvodina. An example of using knowledge technologies shows how we can gain insights into the collaboration and competence of authors.
