Download e-book for kindle: Semantic Web Technologies and Legal Scholarly Publishing by Silvio Peroni

By Silvio Peroni

This paintings offers with the purposes of Semantic Publishing applied sciences within the felony area, i.e., using Semantic internet applied sciences to handle concerns with regards to the felony Scholarly Publishing. study within the box of legislation has an extended culture within the program of semantic applied sciences, corresponding to Semantic internet and associated information, to real-world eventualities. This booklet investigates and proposes suggestions for 3 major matters that Semantic Publishing must deal with in the context of the felony Scholarly Publishing: the necessity of instruments for linking rfile textual content to a proper illustration of its that means; the shortcoming of whole metadata schemas for describing records in keeping with the publishing vocabulary and the absence of powerful instruments and consumer interfaces for simply performing on semantic publishing types and theories.

In specific, this paintings introduces EARMARK, a markup meta language that permits one to create markup records with no the structural and semantic limits imposed through markup languages comparable to XML. EARMARK is a platform to hyperlink the content material layer of a record with its meant formal semantics and it may be used with the Semantic Publishing and Referencing (SPAR) Ontologies, one other subject during this publication. SPAR Ontologies are a set of formal versions offering an higher semantic layer for describing the publishing area. utilizing EARMARK as a origin for SPAR descriptions opens as much as a semantic characterisation of all of the features of a rfile and of its components. ultimately, 4 easy instruments are brought: LODE, KC-Viz, Graffoo and Gaffe. They have been expressly built to facilitate the interplay of publishers and area specialists with Semantic Publishing applied sciences by way of defensive such clients from the underlying formalisms and semantic types of such technologies.
