Dear Colleagues,

With data sharing becoming more widely known and accepted, the need for the
means to accomplish data sharing *in practice* is an important technical
challenge. The Linked Open Drug Data task force in HCLS has attempted to
address this need by developing a DRAFT IG Note regarding practices for
mapping and linking life science data using RDF.  The document, largely
based on a recently submitted article, is being staged as a Google Doc for
your review and comment[1].

In the draft document above, we attempt to supply a guide for those who
would like to produce and publish data in RDF. We would like you to lend us
your extensive expertise and would very much appreciate and carefully
consider your candid comments, questions or suggestions to improve the

Ideally, someone with basic knowledge of the Semantic Web stack and the
desire to 'publish' linked data will be able to get started from this
online document. We have removed the use case descriptions to make it more
'W3C note-like' (concise). The use case descriptions will be available in
an article (in review) that covers much of the same material (pre-prints
available on request).

Kind regards,

M. Scott Marshall
LODD Chair,  on behalf of the LODD Editors and Contributors

P.S. Lee Harland just alerted me to a relevant resource that we will
probably cite or otherwise integrate into the above note:
Looks very interesting:
