Semantic Web Journal special issue on
Linked Data for science and education

The number of universities, research organizations, publishers and funding agencies contributing to the Linked Data cloud is constantly increasing. The Linked Data paradigm has been identified as a lightweight approach for data dissemination and integration, opening up new opportunities for the organization, integration, archiving and retrieval of research results and educational material. Obviously, this novel approach also raises new challenges regarding the integrity, adoption, use and sustainability of contents. A number of case studies from universities and research communities already demonstrate that Linked Data is not merely a novel way of exposing data on the Web, but that its principles help integrating related data, connecting scientists working on related topics, and improving scientific and educational workflows. The next challenges in creating a true Web of scientific and educational data include dealing with provenance, mapping vocabularies (i.e., ontologies), and organizational issues such as assessing costs and ensuring persistence and performance. In this special issue of the Semantic Web Journal, we want to collect the state of the art in Linked Data for science and education and identify upcoming challenges, focussing on technological aspects as well as social and legal implications.

Topics for submissions include, but are not limited to:

- Linked Data for
- dissemination and archiving of research results
- course organization
- educational resources

- Studies of the role of
- Publishers in the Web of Data
- Linked Data in Open Access publishing
- Privacy issues -- Linked Data vs. Linked Open Data in eduction
- Legal, ethical and economic aspects of Linked Data in science and education

We are looking for high-quality papers documenting original and unpublished research on topics related to this special issue. Authors should follow the Semantic Web Journal's submission guidelines (see and prepare their papers in IOS Press format. Submissions will be handled through the journal's online submission system (see The Semantic Web Journal is based on an open review process, which also applies for this special issue.
