With the advancement of digital library techniques and open access services, more and more off-the-shelf utilities for managing scientific publications are emerging and wide-spread used. Nevertheless, most online articles of today remain the electronic facsimiles of the traditional linear structured papers lacking of semantics and interlinked knowledge. In this paper, we propose a pattern-based approach to externalize ubiquitous scientific publications in step with the development of Semantic Webs and Patterns Theory, which aims to tremendously evolve the means of reading, writing, and publishing for research communities.
