Research Graph Schema
Research Graph schema is an accessible meta-model for connecting research objects. This schema is designed to provide a practical approach to construct large scale graphs from a distributed network of scholarly works, by following these design principles:
- Inexpensive metadata harmonisation by providing a simplified data model,
- Efficient storage and compute by providing a lean model that enables highly efficient graph algorithm on graphs more than 100M nodes, and
- Ease of use for developers and data scientists, making the Research Graph model highly accessible and interoperable.
This schema enables the rapid development of local, national, or domain-specific research graphs with a trade-off between practicality and completeness.
