Hello Tony

Amazing work indeed.  I have a little LOV echo to the big LOD call of Kingsley :)

At I get only the vocabulary OWLDoc, no conneg to some rdf file?
Is this rdf file available somewhere?

We just wanted to share this news from yesterday's NPG press release [1]:

    "Nature Publishing Group (NPG) today is pleased to join the linked data
community by opening up access to its publication data via a linked data
platform. NPG's Linked Data Platform is available at

    The platform includes more than 20 million Resource Description
Framework (RDF) statements, including primary metadata for more than 450,000
articles published by NPG since 1869. In this first release, the datasets
include basic citation information (title, author, publication date, etc) as
well as NPG specific ontologies. These datasets are being released under an
open metadata license, Creative Commons Zero (CC0), which permits maximal
use/re-use of this data.

    NPG's platform allows for easy querying, exploration and extraction of
data and relationships about articles, contributors, publications, and
subjects. Users can run web-standard SPARQL Protocol and RDF Query Language
(SPARQL) queries to obtain and manipulate data stored as RDF. The platform
uses standard vocabularies such as Dublin Core, FOAF, PRISM, BIBO and OWL,
and the data is integrated with existing public datasets including CrossRef
and PubMed.

    More information about NPG's Linked Data Platform is available at Sample queries can be found at "




Great stuff!

BTW -- do you also expose an RDF dump (directly or via a VoiD graph) ? Naturally, I would also like to add this dataset to the LOD cloud cache we maintain.
