In this paper we present Talia, a novel implementation of a semantic digital web library system, which is part of the Discovery project. Talia deploys Semantic Web technologies and uses computational ontologies for the organisation of knowledge, which can help the denition of a state-of-the-art research and publishing environment for philosophy. Talia will(More)
Talia is a web-based distributed digital library and publishing system, designed for scholarly research in philosophy. Talia is based on semantic web technology; it's being developed with the Ruby on Rails web framework. Rails is a relatively new environment, which allows developers to easily create well-structured web applications. By combining its power(More)
In this paper we present HyperJournal, an Open Source web application for publishing on-line Open Access scholarly journals.

The amount of data generated on the Web is increasing day by day, but it is not always accessible and usable: developers have to go through numerous steps from obtaining the data to building applications on top of it. The mission of SpazioDati is to eliminate these steps from the development process. SpazioDati pulls the data from various disparate data(More)
In this article we present an high level overview of the HyperJournal project, an effort to provide novel possibilities both in Scientific Publishing and in access to Scientific Contributions, according to the Open Access movement guidelines. All the work has been implemented using the PHP Web Script language and interfacing with Java modules such as Sesame(More)
