Recent developments in Web technology can be used for semantic enhancement of scholarly journal articles, by aiding publication of data and metadata and providing ‘lively’ interactive access to content. Such semantic enhancements are already being undertaken by leading STM publishers, and automated text processing will help these enhancements become affordable and routine. Publisher, editor, and author all have primary roles in that process; an incremental approach is needed. Publication of… 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.

The Digital Publishing Revolution
TLDR
The theories and technologies that take part in today’s publishing revolution, a.k.a. semantic publishing are discussed, and some of the most important research works on my primary fields of interest are introduced, namely markup models and languages to enhance published documents semantically, and ontologies/metadata schema to describe such documents.

Adventures in Semantic Publishing: Exemplar Semantic Enhancements of a Research Article
TLDR
This paper describes semantic enhancements made to a recent biomedical research article taken from PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases, providing enrichment to its content and increased access to datasets within it, and aims to break down present barriers to the discovery and re-use of information within traditional modes of scholarly communication. Expand
Semantic Publishing Challenge - Assessing the Quality of Scientific Output in Its Ecosystem
TLDR
The overall structure of the Semantic Publishing Challenge, as it is for the 2016 edition, as well as the submitted solutions and their evaluation are discussed. Expand
Semantic Annotation of Scholarly Documents and Citations
TLDR
This paper focuses on citations and their automatic classification obtained by CiTalO, a framework that combines ontology learning techniques with NLP techniques and presenting several models and tools for the automatic annotation of structural and semantic components of documents. 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
On the Automated Generation of Scholarly Publishing Linked Datasets: The Case of CEUR-WS Proceedings
TLDR
A system that automatically generates rich RDF datasets from CEUR-WS workshop proceedings and exposes them as Linked Data and modelled and published as an RDF graph is presented. 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
Strategic reading and scientific discourse
As scientific ontologies are integrated into the publishing workflow many enhancements to scientific communication will be possible, including improved support for text mining, informationExpand
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.

Impact of Environment and Social Gradient on Leptospira Infection in Urban Slums
TLDR
Deficiencies in the sanitation infrastructure where slum inhabitants reside were found to be environmental sources of Leptospira transmission, indicating that effective prevention of leptospirosis may need to address the social factors that produce unequal health outcomes among slum residents, in addition to improving sanitation.

The Semantic Web 10
Electronic Publication and the Narrowing of Science and Scholarship
TLDR
Using a database of 34 million articles, their citations, and online availability, it is shown that as more journal issues came online, the articles referenced tended to be more recent, the journals and articles were cited, and more of those citations were to fewer journals andarticles. Expand
