Shaping Ramps for Data-Intensive Research
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.

Abstract

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.
