new journal: "Semantic Web" by IOS Press

Announcement of a new journal

Semantic Web – Interoperability, Usability, Applicability

Publisher: IOS Press
ISSN: 1570-0844


The journal Semantic Web – Interoperability, Usability, Applicability 
brings together researchers from various fields which share the vision 
and need for more effective and meaningful ways to share information 
across agents and services on the future internet and elsewhere. As 
such, Semantic Web technologies shall support the seamless integration 
of data, on-the-fly composition and interoperation of Web services, as 
well as more intuitive search engines. The semantics – or meaning – of 
information, however, cannot be defined without a context, which makes 
personalization, trust, and provenance core topics for Semantic Web 
research. New retrieval paradigms, user interfaces, and visualization 
techniques have to unleash the power of the Semantic Web and at the same 
time hide its complexity from the user. Based on this vision, the 
journal welcome contributions ranging from theoretical and foundational 
research over methods and tools to descriptions of concrete ontologies 
and applications in all areas. We especially welcome papers which add a 
social, spatial, and temporal dimension to Semantic Web research, as 
well as application-oriented papers making use of formal semantics.
The journal is peer-reviewed and will be published quarterly.
IOS Press is a leading international publisher of scientific books and 
journals in many fields including computer & communications sciences and 
especially also the Semantic Web.


The journal invites submissions on all topics related to the Semantic 
Web. Submissions can fall in one of the following categories.

* Full papers – containing original research results. Results previously 
published at conferences may be submitted as extended versions.

* Survey articles – full-length papers surveying the state of the art on 
core Semantic Web topics.

* Descriptions of ontologies – short papers describing ontology modeling 
and creation efforts.

* Application reports – short papers describing deployed applications of 
Semantic Web technologies.

* Reports on tools and systems – short papers describing mature Semantic 
Web related tools and systems.

Review process

The journal uses an open and transparent review process. Submitted 
manuscripts are posted on the journal homepage and are publicly 
available. In addition to solicited reviews, public reviews can be made 
by any researcher. Reviews and review responses are posted on the 
journal homepage. All reviewers will be acknowledged in the final 
printed version. While we encourage reviewers to participate in the open 
and transparent review process, it is also be possible to submit 
anonymous reviews.
