Abstract: This paper discusses principles and kinds of research community knowledge portals. It also presents a case study – experiences of a research group in establishing a knowledge portal, the kinds of practical efforts needed in such a project, the major hurdles and pitfalls on the way, and the lessons learned. Although the case study discusses a research community knowledge portal in a specific research field – artificial intelligence – the experiences it describes are relevant for developing portals to other knowledge areas as well.

Keywords: knowledge portals; portal technology; online communities; research community portals; semantic interoperability; artificial intelligence; web-based communities; knowledge management.
