Linked Open Data is structured data, openly published, that emphasizes the connections between different data. The survey research data, collected within the ACTION study on the motivation of citizen science participants (https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.5753091), have been published as Linked Open Data. Exploiting the Coney toolkit (https://coney.cefriel.com/), the survey structure (questions, answers, etc.) and the survey results have been exported in the RDF format according to the Survey Ontology (https://w3id.org/survey-ontology) and made available online.
The survey research data, described through Research Objects in Zenodo (https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.5753091 and related datasets), can now be easily navigated through a user interface (see for example https://coney.cefriel.com/lod/SurveyProcedure_626734392-1569918565818) and downloaded in different formats. The interface is also enriched with the ontology documentation and offers information on the entities and properties used for the data.
A SPARQL endpoint is available at https://coney.cefriel.com/sparql to semantically query and discover the available data.
