Using the Semantic Grid to Support Evidence-Based Policy Assessment

Peter Edwards, Alison Chorley, Edoardo Pignotti, Feikje Hielkema

The PolicyGrid project is exploring the role of Semantic Grid technologies to support eScience for the social sciences, with a particular emphasis on tools to facilitate evidence-based policy making. In this paper we highlight some of the key challenges for the development of semantic esocial science and outline our approach for management of evidence. In addition, we discuss issues surrounding creation and presentation of metadata, and explain why there is a need to enhance workflow tools to allow them to operate within our evidence-based framework.
