Aidan Hogan, Andreas Harth, Alexandre Passant, Stefan Decker, Axel Polleres "Weaving the Pedantic Web", 3rd International Workshop on Linked Data on the Web (LDOW2010), in conjunction with 19th International World Wide Web Conference, CEUR, 2010.
Over a decade after RDF has been published as a W3C recommendation, publishing open and machine-readable content on the Web has recently received a lot more attention, including from corporate and governmental bodies; notably thanks to the Linked Open Data community, there now exists a rich vein of heterogeneous RDF data published on the Web (the so-called "Web of Data") accessible to all. However, RDF publishers are prone to making errors which compromise the effectiveness of applications leveraging the resulting data. In this paper, we discuss common errors in RDF publishing, their consequences for applications, along with possible publisher-oriented approaches to improve the quality of structured, machine-readable and open data on the Web.
