Every scientific discipline aims at accumulating and developing scientific knowledge in order to develop its theoretical foundations. Scientific knowledge is typically shared and communicated by means of articles published in journals, conference proceedings or books printed on paper or in electronic form. As researchers are typically not interested in articles but their specific content such as concepts, theories or facts, the full potential of electronic knowledge availability has not fully been tapped. Against this background, Hars developed a conceptual model of a general scientific knowledge infrastructure supporting a more adequate electronic provision of knowledge which is typically requested by scholars. In this contribution, the development of a scientific knowledge infrastructure which has been extended to specific needs of Information Systems research using OWL-DL is presented.
