The paper describes initial work on an ontology based tool, ART, for the semantic annotation of papers stored in digital repositories. ART is intended for the annotation not only of data and metadata about a paper, but also the main elements of the described scientific investigation, such as goals, hypotheses, and observations. ART will also be able to aid in the expression of research results directly in a semantic format, through the composition of text using ontology-based templates and stored typical key phrases for the description of basic elements of the research. ART's system design, its functionality, and related projects are discussed. An example annotated paper is presented in order to demonstrate the expected output of the tool.
