Semantic Technology for Publication Metadata Management
Peter Mika

Knowledge Media Institute, Berrill Building, The Open University, Milton Keynes, United Kingdom, MK7 6AA

Publication metadata is widely distributed on the Web across a variety of sources. A number of independent repositories (CiteSeer, DBLP etc.) provide varying qualities of information. Publishers of journals and proceedings also manage and expose metadata in a variety of ways. At the same time individual authors maintain their own private collections of bibliography listing their own works and items of interest.

Large, messy, distributed settings call for Semantic Web technology. In this presentation I try to give an overview of the problems and possible solutions of managing this complexity based on our own work on openacademia.org and work done by various organizations including Ingenta and the Nature Publishing Group.
