A new Journal on the Semantic Web in all its forms is available for you to read for free.



A new Journal on the Semantic Web is now ready for you to read on line for free. Like most first issues it is a bit waffly and contains overview style papers but they are still worth reading if you are interested in the semantic web. The contributions were invited but in theory they were peer reviewed.


There are 24 papers in the first issue ranging over inductive learning, ontology, semantic search and so on. The full iist of titles is:

  • A reasonable Semantic Web
  • A taskonomy for the Semantic Web
  • Accessing the Web of Data through embodied virtual characters
  • Building an effective Semantic Web for health care and the life sciences
  • Can we ever catch up with the Web?
  • Creating knowledge out of interlinked data
  • Digital heritage: Semantic challenges of long-term preservation
  • Five challenges for the Semantic Sensor Web
  • Inductive learning for the Semantic Web: What does it buy?
  • Model-Assisted Software Development: Using a 'semantic bus' to automate steps in the software development process
  • Modeling vs encoding for the Semantic Web
  • Ontology use for semantic e-Science
  • Preventing ontology interoperability problems instead of solving them
  • Privacy in ontology-based information systems: A pending matter
  • Semantic search on the Web
  • Semantic Web – Interoperability, Usability, Applicability
  • Smart objects: Challenges for Semantic Web research
  • The knowledge reengineering bottleneck
  • The role of space and time for knowledge organization on the Semantic Web
  • The Semantic Web needs more cognition
  • Theoretical foundations and engineering tools for building ontologies as reference conceptual models
  • Towards a pattern science for the Semantic Web
  • Towards the ubiquitous Web
  • User modeling and adaptive Semantic Web

Sadly there are no semantic web facilities associated with the Journal's online form - it's either standard HTML or PDF.
