Many of the Semantic Web ontologies in the domain of HCLS contain constructs for the representation of bibliographic information and references to database entries. Unfortunately, it seems that most of them came up with their own solutions.
If we as Semantic Web developers want to be taken seriously in our striving for improved interoperability, we should try to find a common solution. Of course, we can do mappings between our ontologies, but it would definitly be preferable to use the same set of constructs from the start. As most of our ontologies are under development, we still have the opportunity to reach an agreement. 

I have started a wiki page that lists HCLS ontologies that contain constructs for the representation of bibliographic information, as well as possible standards that could be re-used to increase interoperability:


I am sure that the list is incomplete, so please take the time to add to it. What are your thoughts about this problem?
