Adopting Linked Data at Elsevier • Embrace linked data principles while leveraging our existing content production workflow and infrastructure – Find the right balance between production/QA and online delivery • Leverage partners for content enhancement and knowledge organization – Reuse Web-standard vocabularies, taxonomies, ontologies and entity resources where possible • Build out linked data design patterns for application development • Deliver benefits across the complementary use cases of researcher and practitionerMIT COMPUTER SCIENCE AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE LABORATORY 1/16/2012
Work to Date • Standards – RDF/XML for production/QA • Infrastructure – Linked Data Repository for online delivery services • Applications – Clinical Key (in beta) – EMMeT medical taxonomy – Lancet, SciVerse linked data mashupsMIT COMPUTER SCIENCE AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE LABORATORY 1/16/2012
Long Range Objectives • Build out linked data services for smart content – Expose linked data for our primary and secondary content – Link out to emerging, authoritative ontologies and repositories – Generate linked data for partners’ content • Deliver linked data to support user-driven innovation – Foster a developer ecosystem using our services as a platform – Collaborate in building needed authoritative resources (e.g. ORCID) • Establish linked data business models – The Four Principles make what works for the Web of Content work for the Web of Data without modificationMIT COMPUTER SCIENCE AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE LABORATORY 1/16/2012
