*Introduction*

Tim Berners-Lee coined the term “Linked Data” in his Linked Data Web
architecture note. It refers to a way of publishing and interlinking
structured data.*Linked Data* aims to enable people to share structured data
on the Web as easily as they can share documents today. The basic assumption
behind this term is that the usefulness and value of data increases the more
it is interlinked. According to Tim Berners-Lee (2006), *“like the web of
hypertext, the web of data is constructed with documents on the web.
However, unlike the web of hypertext, where links are relationships anchors
in hypertext documents written in HTML, for data they link between arbitrary
things described by RDF”.*



The proposed book aims at helping in communicating and disseminating
relevant recent research in open linked data and semantic web based
personalization as applied to the context of Information Systems.



*Objective of the Book*

Linked Data literature proposes using the Web to connect related data that
was not previously linked or to lower the barriers to currently linked data
using other methods. More specifically, the basic elements of linked data
are to: 1) use the RDF data model to publish structured data on the Web; and
2) use RDF links to interlink data from different data sources. The
application of both principles leads to the creation of a data commons on
the Web which is often called the Web of Data or Semantic Web.

The book collection will cover Open Linked Data and Semantic Web approaches
to information systems and ontology-based information systems research, as
well as the diverse underlying database and knowledge representation aspects
that impact personalization and the customization. The chapters will also
address challenges for this new field of research. Chapters dealing with
aspects of both topics are especially sought.



The subject area is a combination of *Web Semantic, Open Linked Data,
Business, Management, Information Technologies and Information Systems*.
