|rio:Researcher|| Researcher Дослідник|
A person who researches
|rio:SpecificResource|| Specific Resource|
Instances of the SpecificResource class identify part of another resource, as used for research.
|rio:ResearchContext|| Research Context Контекст Дослідження|
A collection of research cases that are related somehow. A research context.
|rio:ResearchObject|| Research Object|
The object of research, i.e. whatever is being studied, searched, browsed, measured, etc. by a human or machine.
|rio: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.
|rio:ResearchArtifact|| Research Artifact|
The static output of a research process.
|rio:Conclusion|| Conclusion Висновок|
An answer to a research question.
|rio: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.
|rio: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.
|rio:ResearchAffordance|| Research Affordance|
