Despite the advatages of Linked Data as a data integration paradigm, accessing and consuming Linked Data is still a cumbersome task. Linked Data applications need to use technologies such as RDF and SPARQL that, despite their expressive power, belong to the data integration stack. As a result, applications and data cannot be cleanly separated: SPARQL queries, endpoint addresses, namespaces, and URIs end up as part of the application code. Many publishers address these problems by building… 
GraphQL Schema Generation for Data-Intensive Web APIs
TLDR
This paper proposes to take advantage of the new GraphQL framework that, in contrast to the dominant REST API approach, exposes an explicit data model, described in terms of the so-called GraphQL schema, to enable precise retrieving of only required data.
An APIfication Approach to Facilitate the Access and Reuse of Open Data
TLDR
There is a gap between open data and users in which the APIfication approach can help by creating APIs for available datasets, which consists of a model-based generation of suitable APIs with natural language documentation to access open data.
Open Data Consumption Through the Generation of Disposable Web APIs
TLDR
This paper describes an approach with which to leverage semantic information from data sources so as to automatically generate easy-to-use disposable Web APIs that can be used to access open data in a situational scenario, thus avoiding the complexity and learning curve of SPARQL and the effort of manually processing the data.
grlc: the git repository linked data API constructor
RDF is a knowledge representation format (and an enabling technology for Linked Open Data) which has gained popularity over the years and it continues to be adopted in different domains such as life
WYSIWYQ - What You See Is What You Query
TLDR
WYSIWYQ (What You See Is What You Query), a novel approach that allows people to interactively visualize a given SPARQL query as a browsing UI, which can be further enriched or re-purposed by users, is proposed.
The Semantic Web MIDI Tape: An Interface for Interlinking MIDI and Context Metadata
TLDR
The Semantic Web MIDI Tape is proposed, a set of tools and associated interface for interacting with the MIDI Linked Data Cloud by enabling users to record, enrich, and retrieve MIDI performance data and related metadata in native Web data standards.
Nanopublications: A Growing Resource of Provenance-Centric Scientific Linked Data
TLDR
An overview of this combined nanopublication dataset is provided, the results of some overarching analyses are shown, and how it can be accessed and queried are described.
KGMap: Leveraging Enterprise Knowledge Graphs by Bridging between Relational, Social and Linked Web Data
TLDR
This work proposes KGMap a mapping schema for leveraging knowledge graphs by bridging between heterogeneous Relational, Social and Linked Data Web sources by connecting the knowledge graph schema with the sources metadata elements relying on semantic similarity measures.
Improving Access to the Dutch Historical Censuses with Linked Open Data
TLDR
The outcomes of the cedar project are described, which make access to the digitized assets of the Dutch Historical Censuses easier, faster, and more reliable by using the data publishing paradigm of Linked Data from the Semantic Web.

grlc Makes GitHub Taste Like Linked Data APIs
Building Web APIs on top of SPARQL endpoints is becoming common practice. It enables universal access to the integration favorable data space of Linked Data. In the majority of use cases, users
SPARQL2Git: Transparent SPARQL and Linked Data API Curation via Git
TLDR
SPARQL2Git is proposed, an interface for editing, curating and storing SPARQL queries that uses cloud based Git repositories (such as GitHub) as a backend that enables decoupling, version control, availability and accessibility of SParQL queries.
Integrating Linked Data and Services with Linked Data Services
TLDR
This work proposes Linked Data Services (LIDS), a general, formalised approach for integrating dataproviding services with Linked data, a popular mechanism for data publishing which facilitates data integration and allows for decentralised publishing.
LDtogo: A Data Querying and Mapping Frameworkfor Linked Data Applications
TLDR
LDtogo is a framework that makes it easy for application administrators to integrate and maintain Linked Data when building new applications or when re-using existing ones by providing an easy-to-use interface to create a customized API wrapper for applications.
Querying Datasets on the Web with High Availability
TLDR
The Linked Data Fragments concept is formalized, aaclient-side sparql query processing algorithm that uses a dynamic iterator pipeline, and servers' availability under load is verified, indicating that, at the cost of lower performance, query techniques with triple pattern fragments lead to high availability.
A BASILar Approach for Building Web APIs on Top of SPARQL Endpoints
TLDR
BASIL is an approach to build Web APIs on top of SPARQL endpoints, in order to benefit of the advantages from both Web APIs and Linked Data approaches, and aims on minimising the learning curve for users to promote its adoption.
Git2PROV: Exposing Version Control System Content as W3C PROV
TLDR
A system to expose the provenance stored in VCS in a new standard Web-native format: W3C PROV is described, which enables the easy publication of VCS provenance on the Web and subsequent integration with other systems that make use of PROV.
smartAPI: Towards a More Intelligent Network of Web APIs
TLDR
It is shown that annotating APIs with smartAPI metadata is straightforward through an extension of the existing Swagger editor, and this work increases the automated interoperability of Web APIs.
An Experimental Comparison of RDF Data Management Approaches in a SPARQL Benchmark Scenario
TLDR
An experimental comparison of existing storage strategies on top of the SP2Bench SPARQL performance benchmark suite is presented and it is concluded that future research is necessary to further bring forward RDF data management.
