Scientific innovation depends on finding, integrating, and re-using the products of previous research. Here we explore how recent developments in Web technology, particularly those related to the publication of data and metadata, might assist that process by providing semantic enhancements to journal articles within the mainstream process of scholarly journal publishing. We exemplify this by describing semantic enhancements we have made to a recent biomedical research article taken from PLoS… Expand
Semantic Publishing: issues, solutions and new trends in scholarly publishing within the Semantic Web era
TLDR
This thesis investigates and proposes solutions for three of the main issues that semantic publishing promises to address, namely: the need of tools for linking document text to a formal representation of its meaning, the lack of complete metadata schemas for describing documents according to the publishing vocabulary, and absence of effective user interfaces for easily acting on semantic publishing models and theories.

FaBiO and CiTO: Ontologies for describing bibliographic resources and citations
TLDR
This article introduces the principles and architectures of two new ontologies central to the task of semantic publishing: FaBiO, the FRBR-aligned Bibliographic Ontology, an ontology for recording and publishing bibliographic records of scholarly endeavours on the Semantic Web, and CiTO, the Citation Typing Ontology.

Assisting in semantic enrichment of scholarly resources by connecting neonion and Wikidata
TLDR
It is argued that the re-use of external structured knowledge from Wikidata both fuels an enhanced workflow for assisted subject-matter-sensitive semantic annotation, and allows for the knowledge base to benefit from the structured data generated within neonion in return. Expand
Semantic Lenses as Exploration Method for Scholarly Articles
TLDR
This paper introduced a test in using a particular semantic publishing model, called semantic lenses, to semantically enhance published journal articles. Expand
A semantic model for scholarly electronic publishing in Biomedical Sciences
TLDR
A semantic model for scholarly electronic publishing is proposed, in which the article conclusion is specified by the author and recorded in a machine-understandable format, enabling semantic retrieval, identification of traces of scientific discoveries and knowledge misunderstandings. Expand
Genuine semantic publishing
TLDR
It is argued here for taking the term semantic publishing literally and work towards a vision of genuine semantic publishing, where computational tools and algorithms can help with dealing with the wealth of human knowledge by letting researchers capture their research results with formal semantics from the start, as integral components of their publications. Expand
Automating semantic publishing
TLDR
This article proposes a generic approach called compositional and iterative semantic enhancement (CISE) that enables the automatic enhancement of scholarly papers with additional semantic annotations in a way that is independent of the markup used for storing scholarly articles and the natural language used for writing their content. Expand
Semantic Lenses to Bring Digital and Semantic Publishing Together
TLDR
This paper introduced a way to use a particular semantic publishing model, called semantic lenses, to semantically enhance a published journal article, and presents the main features of TAL, a prototypical application that enables the navigation and understanding of a scholarly document through these semantic lenses. Expand
A Semantic Model for Scholarly Electronic Publishing

Manually structured digital abstracts: A scaffold for automatic text mining
TLDR
The structured abstract will provide valuable context to mining algorithms by presenting clearly the main points of each article (as defined by authors and editors), so additional facts gleaned can be correctly categorized as either supporting or detracting from the main Points. Expand
Technical implementation of the semantic enhancements applied to Reis et al. (2008) Impact of environment and social gradient on Leptospira infection in urban slums. PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases 2(4): e228
TLDR
This document provides a technical description of how semantic enhancements were implemented and the heuristics the authors applied when deciding which textual terms were to be assigned to the semantic classes highlighted in the text of the enhanced version of the Reis et al. (2008) article. Expand
A text‐mining perspective on the requirements for electronically annotated abstracts
We propose that the combination of human expertise and automatic text‐mining systems can be used to create a first generation of electronically annotated information (EAI) that can be added toExpand
Publishing perishing? Towards tomorrow's information architecture
TLDR
The changing roles of scholarly journals and databases are examined, the vision of the optimal information architecture for the biosciences is presented, and tangible steps to improve the handling of scientific information today while paving the way for an expansive central index in the future are closed. Expand
Linking entries in protein interaction database to structured text: The FEBS Letters experiment
TLDR
An experiment is presented aimed at integrating each manuscript with a structured summary precisely reporting, with database identifiers and predefined controlled vocabularies, the protein interactions reported in the manuscript. Expand
Linked Data
TLDR
This Synthesis lecture provides readers with a detailed technical introduction to Linked Data, including coverage of relevant aspects of Web architecture, and provides guidance and best practices on architectural approaches to publishing Linked data. Expand
Data, disciplines, and scholarly publishing
TLDR
A critical mass of datasets in public repositories, with links to and from publisher databases, is the most promising solution to maintaining and sustaining the scholarly record in digital form. Expand
Linked data and provenance in biological data webs
TLDR
The use of named resource description framework (RDF) graphs at different levels of granularity to make provenance assertions about linked data are illustrated and demonstrated to support requirements including data currency, integrity, evidential support and historical queries. Expand
Bio2RDF : A Semantic Web Atlas of Post Genomic Knowledge about Human and Mouse
TLDR
The Bio2RDF Atlas graph is a semantic mashup of 65 million triples that was built from 30 public bioinformatics data providers: GO, NCBI, UniProt, KEGG, PDB and many others. Expand
