Weaving the Pedantic Web


Over a decade after RDF has been published as a W3C recommendation, publishing open and machine-readable content on the Web has recently received a lot more attention, including from corporate and governmental bodies; notably thanks to the Linked Open Data community, there now exists a rich vein of heterogeneous RDF data published on the Web (the so-called \Web of Data") accessible to all. However, RDF publishers are prone to making errors which compromise the e ectiveness of applications leveraging the resulting data. In this paper, we discuss common errors in RDF publishing, their consequences for applications, along with possible publisher-oriented approaches to improve the quality of structured, machine-readable and open data on the Web.
