• What is this website?

    This website allows users to explore the contents of SN SciGraph. It is aimed both at linked data specialists, who can find machine-readable representations of SN SciGraph resources, and at the more general research community, as it provides an overview on the variety of data in SN SciGraph, and how the data is structured.

  • What is SN SciGraph?
