Special Call for Linked Dataset Descriptions
Linked Data is a key enabler for the Semantic Web vision, and a decisive
step towards a truly "Semantic" Web.
The Semantic Web journal calls for brief papers (about 4-6 pages)
containing a concise description of a Linked Dataset. The paper shall
describe in concise and clear terms key characteristics of the dataset
as a guide to its usage for various (possibly unforeseen) purposes. In
particular, such a paper shall typically give information, amongst
others, on the following aspects of the dataset.
* Name, URL, version date and number, licensing, availability, etc.
* Topic coverage, source for the data, purpose and method of creation
and maintenance, reported useage etc.
* Metrics and statistics on external and internal connectivity, use of
established vocabularies (e.g., RDF, OWL, SKOS, FOAF), language
* Examples and critical discussion of typical knowledge modeling
* Known shortcomings of the dataset.
Papers will be evaluated along the following dimensions: Quality of the
dataset, usefulness (or potential usefulness) of the dataset, clarity
and completeness of the descriptions.
Papers should usually be written by people involved in the generation or
maintenance of the dataset, or with the consent of these people.
Prospective authors must take notice of the submission guidelines posted
Paper submission: May 20th, 2012
Notification: Usually within 8 weeks of submission
