Abstract: 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 facing developers of semantic infrastructure and tools for social science researchers. We outline a framework for evidence management, discuss issues surrounding creation and presentation of metadata, describe a Web-based service which utilises a natural language interface to facilitate creation of RDF, and present a desktop qualitative analysis tool which is integrated with our evidence framework.
