Hi Paolo,

Thanks! I understand better now. In both cases, with tags and semantic
tags, I am assigning some kind of category or identification to the
resource but in the case of semantic tags I use entities rather than plain

In the example (
ex:anno oa:motivation oa:Tagging is missing in the RDF, is not it? And it
should be ex:anno and not ex:Anno in the RDF as well.

If I want to specify the exact intended relation, not necessarily with
semantic tags but in general, how could it be achieved thorough
annotations? Would that be a case for annotation/conversations? Or
annotations on annotations? Let's say I am reading an article (A1) and I
find a method/material/whatever that I know have been criticized in the
background section in a different article (A2).  It is not a motivation
because "criticizing" is not the annotator's intention but the relation
between the body and the target. How could I model that with OA? The idea
would be something like:

<anno1> a oa:Annotation ;
    oa:hasBody <spbody1> ;
    oa:hasTarget <sptarget1> ;
    xxx:intendedRelation "criticizes". ##how to model this?

  <spbody1> a oa:SpecificResource ;
    oa:hasSource <URL for article A2> .

  <sptarget1> a oa:SpecificResource ;
    oa:hasSource <URL for article A1> .

If "criticizes" comes from an ontology, then I could have something like
<anno1> a oa:Annotation ;
    oa:hasBody <spbody1> ;
    oa:hasTarget <sptarget1> .
  <spbody1> a oa:SpecificResource ;
    oa:hasSource <URL for article A2> .
  <sptarget1> a oa:SpecificResource ;
    oa:hasSource <URL for article A1> .

<anno2> a oa:Annotation ;
    oa:hasBody <URI for term criticizes in some ontology> ;
    oa:hasTarget <anno1> ;
    oa:motivatedBy oa:Tagging.

<URI for term criticizes in some ontology> a oa:Tag .

Even if "criticizes" does not come from an ontology, I still can use a
plain text tag on <anno1> but I am not sure tag or semantic tag would be
the way. Maybe "specify relation" or kind of would be a motivation for
annotations on annotations?
