RESTful Web services are an increasingly popular way for companies to expose their data on the Web. On the other hand, the Linked Open Data initiative is gaining traction recently. Since REST's principles align well with those of Linked Data, there is an increasing interest in the relationship of the two. Nevertheless, in practice they still largely remain separated, creating islands of data instead of a global graph of data forming the envisioned Semantic Web. There are different reasons for… 
A framework for the description, discovery and composition of RESTful semantic web services
TLDR
A standard Microformats like syntax is defined that helps to annotate semantics into the already existing documentation of these services doubling them as a machine-readable description and extended to link between related services and enable automatic discovery and composition.
Seamless Integration of RESTful Services into the Web of Data
TLDR
This paper introduces a novel approach to create machine-readable descriptions for RESTful services as a first step towards this ambitious goal and shows how these descriptions along with an algorithm to translate SPARQL queries to HTTP requests can be used to integrate RESTful Services into a global read-write Web of Data.
RESTDoc: Describe, Discover and Compose RESTful Semantic Web Services using Annotated Documentations
TLDR
A standard Microformats like syntax is defined that helps to annotate semantics into the already existing documentation of these services dou bling them as a machine-readable description and is extended to link between related services and enable automatic discovery and composition.
Third Generation Web APIs - Bridging the Gap between REST and Linked Data
TLDR
This thesis elucidates how JSON-LD and Hydra can be used for a domain-driven design and implementation of Web APIs and evaluates their practicality and demonstrate that they address the issues of current Web APIs.
Aligning Web Services with the Semantic Web to Create a Global Read-Write Graph of Data
TLDR
This work proposes a novel approach to integrate Web services into the Web of Data by introducing an algorithm to translate SPARQL queries to HTTP requests and aims to create a global read-write graph of data and to standardize the mashup development process.
Application of SWSAL in Semantic Annotation of RESTful Web Services
TLDR
This work shows how the SWSAL language can be used to semantically describe a web service compliant with the REST principles, and establishes the bases for the application ofSWSAL and its related researches to the RESTful web service area.
Application of SWSAL in Semantic Annotation of RESTful Web Services
TLDR
This work shows how the SWSAL language can be used to semantically describe a web service compliant with the REST principles, and establishes the bases for the application ofSWSAL and its related researches to the RESTful web service area.
Hydra: A Vocabulary for Hypermedia-Driven Web APIs
TLDR
Hydra, a small vocabulary to describe Web APIs that aims to simplify the development of truly RESTful services by leveraging the power of Linked Data, is developed.
Assessing Web Services Interfaces with Lightweight Semantic Basis
TLDR
A novel Web Service Selection Method is presented and an Interface Compatibility procedure to assess structural-semantic aspects of candidate Web Services is defined and results have been obtained in terms of well-known metrics of the Information Retrieval field.
On using JSON-LD to create evolvable RESTful services
TLDR
JSON-LD is presented, a community effort to standardize a media type targeted to machine-to-machine communication with inherent hypermedia support and rich semantics that can be used to build truly RESTful services that, at the same time, integrate the exposed data into the Semantic Web.

Linking Data from RESTful Services
TLDR
This paper distill REST concepts in order to provide a mechanism for describing REST resources and transform them into semantic resources, to contribute to the availability of more semantic datasets and become a further step to lower the entry barrier to semantic resources publishing.
Adapting SAWSDL for Semantic Annotations of RESTful Services
TLDR
This work presents hRESTS, a microformat for including machine-readable descriptions of RESTful service within existing HTML service documentation, and presents SWEET---Semantic Web sErvices Editing Tool, which effectively supports users in creating semantic descriptions of RPC services based on the aforementioned technologies.
Bridging the semantic Web and Web 2.0 with Representational State Transfer (REST)
TLDR
This paper presents the design and implementation of two solutions that combine REST-based design and RDF data access: one solution for integrating existing web services and one server-side solution for creating RDF REST services.
SEMANTIC WEB SERVICES: STATE OF THE ART
TLDR
This paper focuses on an extensive survey comparing the existing state-of-the-art technologies for semantically annotated Web services as a first step towards a proposal designed specifically for RESTful services.
Web Service Modeling Ontology
TLDR
Along with introducing the main elements of WSMO, this paper provides a logical language for defining formal statements in WSMO together with some motivating examples from practical use cases which shall demonstrate the benefits of Semantic Web Services.
SA-REST and (S)mashups : Adding Semantics to RESTful Services
TLDR
This paper demonstrates use of microformats for semantic annotation of RESTful services and then the use of such semanti- cally enabled services with better support for interoperability for creating dynamic mashups called SMashups.
EXPRESS: EXPressing REstful Semantic Services
  • Areeb Alowisheq, D. Millard
  • Computer Science
    2009 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Joint Conference on Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology
  • 2009
We introduce a new approach for RESTful Semantic Web Services called EXPRESS. It aims to exploit the similarities between REST and the Semantic Web, such as realization of resources, self describing
hRESTS: An HTML Microformat for Describing RESTful Web Services
  • J. Kopecký, K. Gomadam, T. Vitvar
  • Computer Science
    2008 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology
  • 2008
TLDR
A microformat is proposed called hRESTS (HTML for RESTful Services) for machine-readable descriptions of Web APIs, backed by a simple service model, which captures the facets of public APIs important for mashup developers and MicroWSMO, which provides support for semantic automation.
WSMO-Lite Annotations for Web Services
TLDR
This work builds on the SAWSDL layer and defines WSMO-Lite service ontology, narrowing down the use of SAW SDL as an annotation mechanism for WSMO -Lite, to allow incremental steps on top of existing service descriptions, enhancing existing SOA capabilities with intelligent and automated integration.
Learning Highly Structured Semantic Repositories from Relational Databases:
TLDR
This paper shows how the RDBToOnto tool can be used to derive accurate ontologies by taking advantage of both the database schema and the data, and more specifically through identification of taxonomies hidden in the data.
