Shaping Ramps for Data-Intensive Research

Atkinson, Malcolm, De Roure, David, van Hemert, Jano and Michaelides, Danius (2010) Shaping Ramps for Data-Intensive Research At UK e-Science All Hands Meeting 2010.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


An 'Intellectual Ramp' enables researchers to move incrementally from their current practice into the adoption of new methods. An investigation of Ramps is an important step towards "crossing the chasm" so that researchers can benefit from new tools, technologies and approaches. This paper will define and explain the concept of Ramps, discuss requirements and the anatomy of Ramps, and propose a measurement framework illustrated by examples to improve the understanding of why ramps work.
