Hi Alexander:

Many thanks for your comments.

We're really interested to know more about what you mean by "better yet if there would be more RDF". Can you expand on that for us with some  examples? This would give us better inputs into seeing how we can improve our data offering. Some things may be easy, some may take some planning, but some clear feedback would anyway give us something to work with.

Yes, our URIs do not generally resolve. This is something we are considering how best to address. For the moment, the datasets are coming from our production systems where we are using HTTP URIs primarily for namespacing. We need to figure out how best to serve RDF from these URIs.

Thanks for the reference to your paper. Am reading it now. Very intrigued to see what lessons we can learn.

good to see this coming from NPG. better yet if there would be more RDF because I could not find much when looking over your data. some uris don't resolve. anyway, I did somethig similar, http://www.jbiomedsem.com/content/4/S1/S5 but with pub med central, the open access full text version.

As promised in a couple posts to the list earlier this year [1,2] we have now resumed dataset publishing (following on from the 2012 releases on data.nature.com<http://data.nature.com> [3,4]) and have added a new snapshot of bibliography metadata for nature.com<http://nature.com> articles to the Nature.com Ontologies portal:


Specifically, as announced yesterday [5], we have released 170 years of bib data for all nature.com<http://nature.com> articles and contributors over the period 1845-2015. We expect to release new snapshots periodically.

The release notes are copied below.



* We've resumed publishing of datasets. We're now making available complete instance datasets for articles (1.2 m) and contributors (2.7 m). These datsets are linked to the DOI and ORCID datasets. (These datasets replace the historic datasets from 2012.)

* We've now added our core and domain models to GitHub projects and brought them under version control: public-npg-core-ontology  GitHub and public-npg-domain-ontology GitHub

* We've improved our documentation. A whole new Technical Notes section has been added. Some material from the homepage (e.g. Background, Licenses, Namespaces) has been moved there, and new material has been added (e.g. Annotations, Mappings, Naming Policy, Versions).

* We've improved our data mappings. The Subjects Ontology is now 100% mapped to DBpedia. See Mappings.

* We've added a reference in our Links section to our new colleagues at Springer and their LOD for Conferences in Computer Science.
