Knowledge is Power!

In my first post I am comparing the typical article structure found in wikipedia and the proposed by Knol. I am also proposing an initial set of suggestions to improve the structure proposed in knol. It would be interesting to include a group named as "Suggestion Box" where content authors define their needs and improvements.

Wikipedia Sections

  1. Article title Definition/Introduction: a definition or introduction about the wikipedia entry
  2. Table of Contents: self-generated table of contents
  3. Table of Contents Sections: the sections included in the table of contents
  4. Notes and References: technical and academic references
  5. See Also: related wikipedia entries
  6. External Links: external sources such as definitions, introductions, tutorials and so on
  7. Categories: general wikipedia categories
  8. Also discussion, edit and versioning history tabs

Knol Sections as Compared to Wikipedia

  1. Article title Personal Info: Author, Affilation, Email, Author Photo and Profile. In wikipedia articles are written by anonymous authors InKnol it is supposed to be written by an authority or expert in the field
  2. Article Info: rating, views, edits, peer reviews, comments wikipedia articles are not rated by peer reviewers and external reviewers as in knol In wikipedia articles are reviewed, commented and corrected by anonymous authors
  3. Table of Contents I assume that in both sides they will be self-generated by the wiki markup
  4. Definition
  5. Introduction
  6. Rest of Table of Contents section
  7. More Information: web resources and books References. These three last sections (definition, introduction, rest of table of contents sections) are the same in both sides
  8. Related Knols: related articles Other articles written by the Author
  9. Peer Reviews: reviews by authorized reviewers Only in knol

Conclusions

It will be interesting for the developers to include a SUGGESTION BOX section in order to define sections that add value to Knol.

My starting suggestion include the following:

1. Add a taxonomy based upon the ACM Computing Classification System but updated for Computer Science and Information Systems Sections. For the rest of knowledge domains a link to the open directory project taxonomy. Also include upper level taxonomies such as upper level ontologies

2. Provide a mapping from these taxonomies to knol folksonomies (social tagging) Therefore Knol can include the following tags:

2.1. Taxonomic tags (the classification systems mentioned above)

2.2. Folksonomies (social tagging)

2.3. The tags suggested by the author: keywords or tags 2.

3. The references section include references to Google Scholar in order to obtain the number of citations or the number of citations are shown ina given knol article (this is really added value)

4. The "More information" section should include well-defined subsections such as definitions, introduction and tutorials, advanced sections and so on.

5. A section including personal data of the editor of the article, that is the person responsible or expert in a given category: i.e. Data Mining, Genomics, Pediatry, and so on.

6. The personal info section: include a link to personal blog, to personal portal, to related web sites such as wordpress blog roll

7. A reward system for editors, content authors and authorized peer reviewers in the form of points that can be exchanged for instance for related books. This is just a suggestion as an ACM Computing Reviews reviewer I get from time to time books in exchange of reviewing them.

This is just a small part of suggestions I hope somebody in the forum will come upp with additional suggestions

Cheers

From the above summary, it seems that the knol structure has ommitted an Acknowledgements section, which is a standard and extremely important component of many authored publications, especially where authors are expected to have a visible degree of authority and responsibility: no author can be completely authoritative on all aspects of a subject, and it is good if they can incorporate advice and information from other people for certain aspects of a given subject. This leads into the question of co-authors.

It is conceivable that online publication could develop new approaches to the designation and status of coauthors, but it is probably better to follow the protocols used in print media, as these have evolved over many years to accommodate the diverse circumstances of different kinds of research and writing effort.

I am presuming that the knol system will allow multiple authorship, at the time of first publication.
