Springer Nature SciGraph is a Linked Open Data platform aggregating data sources from Springer Nature and key partners from the scholarly domain.
The Linked Open Data platform collates information from across the research landscape, such as funders, research projects, conferences, affiliations, publications, citations, patents, clinical trials and makes it available as structured metadata that can be downloaded and reused in other applications.
The SciGraph Core Ontology
The SciGraph Core Ontology is the OWL model we developed in order to describe key concepts of interest to content publishing at Springer Nature.
The ontology contains formal definitions of entities such as Authors, Articles, Books, Chapters, Conferences, etc.. as well as mappings to other well known knowledge models. See the following links to find out more:
