The Linked Science Core vocabulary is designed for describing a research setting and to interconnect it to other related things and components (researcher, data, hypothesis, etc.).
You may check LSC online at http://linkedscience.org/lsc/ns/. There will be a breakout session at the Science Online London 2011 (#solo11) to develop a schema or a vocabulary for science, and we will use LSC as a basis for stimulating the imagination for doing so.
We hope to use the results of the Science Online London to extend and improve LSC. Stay tuned and follow our twitter feed @LinkedScience—-or participate our breakout session at Science Online London to develop new ideas for describing and publishing scientific content online!
