Abstract

Whenever the researcher took his first step into some academic field to explore knowledge and do research, most difficult experience is that he did not know what domain knowledge does have. It is very difficult to find out his required information correctly by search engines without definite targets and keywords in limited time. In order to resolve the problem, this research proposes the concept and mechanism of collaborative mode to let researchers jointly create domain knowledge and corresponding knowledge structure. The purpose is to preserve their research knowledge and facilitate researchers to inquiry, browse the domain knowledge structure and share their research experiences to complete their own work smoothly. This research takes the domain of information architecture as a study case for constructing knowledge structure. Sharing knowledge on the Wiki collaborative platform, researchers can share what they are reading, write subject knowledge with others, quote reference correlations, etc. Additionally, the knowledge contents and marked concept keywords that researchers shared, can be reorganized and analyzed, and then may become the elements of knowledge construction and classification. After defining semantic relations of keywords and describing linkages between knowledge concepts, we apply the technology of subject map to construct the knowledge structure of the information architecture domain. The resulted structure will facilitate researchers to accomplish their research work completely and conveniently.
