This semantic wiki at Openresearch aims at making the world of science more visible and accessible. Information about scientific events, research projects, publishers, journals etc. is scattered around on the Web. For researchers (especially young ones without decades of experience) it is often difficult to find the relevant venues, people or tools. Also research is increasingly dynamic and multi-disciplinary, so the boundaries between communities blur and new research directions emerge. With this semantic Wiki, we aim to make information about scientific events, research groups, tools, journals etc. more accessible. Openresearch is not restricted to any field of science.

Holy Toledo, so glad I clcekid on this site first!

Who is behind Openresearch? was created by members of the AKSW and Business Information Systems departments at Universität Leipzig. As the community is growing and we also started other Open Research related projects (such as and the Participatory Research initiative) we are currently in the process of establishing a separate organisation - the Open Research Association.
