This specification makes use of the following namespaces:
The following are class definitions in the
|rcases:Evidence|| Evidence Свідоцтво|
Information that could be used, in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, to answer a question, or that has bearing on the answer to a question. Evidence only exists in the context of a question.
|rcases:ResearchContext|| Research Context Контекст Дослідження|
A collection of research cases that are related somehow. A research context.
|rcases:ResearchCase|| Research Case Випадок Дослідження|
An explicit focus on a single question, encompassing everything leading to its conclusion. Also could be thought of as an affordance to research, or an articulated intention to find an answer to a question. The fundamental unit of research.
|rcases:Information|| Information Інформація|
Data with context and meaning. Much of the stuff on the document web is information.
|rcases:Researcher|| Researcher Дослідник|
A person who researches
|rcases:Conclusion|| Conclusion Висновок|
An answer to a research question.
|rcases:Analysis|| Analysis Аналіз|
Some sort of presentation of the evidence. Could be a domain-specific representation.
|rcases:Hypothesis|| Hypothesis Гіпотеза|
A statement to test. A possible, though unproven, answer to a research question.
|rcases:LearningContext|| Learning Context|
Whatever is being studied, searched, browsed, measured, etc. in order for a human or machine to learn something.
|rcases:Question|| Question Питання|
A research question. Represents the direction that the researcher intends to take the research. The next thing that needs to be explored, or direction that the research needs to go.
|rcases:Trajectory|| Trajectory траєкторія|
The trajectory is the path that the researcher moves along as research progresses. The researcher's trajectory is adjusted constantly in highly idiosyncratic ways. This term supports the intuition that all researchers have different levels of knowledge and experience, and will eventually (hopefully) converge on truth.
The following are property definitions in the
|rcases:acceptedConclusion|| accepted conclusion|
The currently accepted conclusion to the question in this research case.
|rcases:triggeredBy|| triggered by|
The learning context, if any, that prompted or triggered this question.
|rcases:question|| question питання|
The question the researcher is intending to answer next. The aim the researcher is taking for his, her, or its next step. The angle of inclination that will determine the trajectory that the research will take.
A bit of evidence used in an analysis.
The conclusion of an analytical process that provides an answer to the question in this research case.
An analysis of evidence pertinent to the question in this research case.
The source of the information.
