Universities’ executives should know expertise and research directions of key researchers in order to formulate strategy and policy for research management efficiently. This management is in term of set up research labs or research clusters depending on the actual potential of researchers in universities.
However, it is quite hard to identify who are the key researchers because of two reasons. First, it quite difficult to know clearly what kind of items should be used in criteria for qualifying key researchers. Second, these criteria are dynamic depending on the different of management levels (university, faculty, and department), disciplines (Health Sciences, Science & Technology, and Social Sciences & Humanities), and subjects.
This study purposes a framework for developing the ontology on commitment of universities, which enable to identify key researchers and set up research clusters of universities related to the expertise and research directions of key researchers. Chiang Mai University (CMU), Thailand is used as a case study.
To this end, first intellectual capitals of CMU are identified through collecting researchers’ information from many sources by using Skandia model, intellectual capital model used for identifying, measuring, and managing intellectual capital easily and clearly, as a frame. Second, key researchers of Chiang Mai University are identified through developing and reasoning the ontology on commitment of Chiang Mai University. Subsequently, research clusters are set up through card sorting technique and analyzing that ontology.
