Semantic Web Journal Special Issue on Linked Dataset Descriptions:

Linked Data is a key enabler for the Semantic Web vision and one of the 
steps towards a truly "Semantic Web". The Semantic Web journal calls for 
papers (5-8 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 (if applicable).

* Name, URL, versioning, licensing, availability
* Topic coverage, source for the data
* Purpose of the Linked Dataset, e.g. demonstrated by relevant queries
   or inferences over it
* Applications using the dataset and other metrics of use
* Creation, maintenance and update mechanisms as well as policies to
   ensure sustainability and stability
* Quality, quantity and purpose of links to other datasets
* Domain modeling and use of established vocabularies
* Examples and critical discussion of typical knowledge modelling
   patterns used
* Known shortcomings of the dataset

Papers will be evaluated along the following dimensions: quality of the 
dataset, usefulness (or potential usefulness) of the dataset, as well as 
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 
at http://www.semantic-web-journal.net/authors.

This call builds on a successful previous special issue of the Semantic 
Web Journal.


Paper submission: *March 7th, 2013*
