Rich Internet Publications (RIP)

Today Leen Breure is talking about Rich Internet Publications: super enhanced research publications. A new way of bringing research material to an on line published state. They’re lightweight, cheap and easy to create. They tie together text, tools (research instruments) and non linear reading of research results. The advantage over traditional (journal) publications is that they offer more interactive engagement with the research results, and a wider range of visualizations and linking in of actual research data. An example can be found at the MIT project Visualizaing Cultures. An article on the subject is coming forth: Breure, L., Voorbij H., Hoogerwerf, M.: “Rich Internet Publications: ‘Show What You Tell’”.
