Dissemination, an important phase of scientific research, can be seen as a communication process between scientists. They expose and support their findings, while discussing claims stated in related scientific publications. However, due to the increasing number of publications, finding a starting point for such a discussion represents a real challenge. At same time, browsing can also be difficult since the communication spans accross multiple publications on the open Web. In this paper we propose a semantic claim federation infrastructure, named KonneXSALT, as a solution for both issues mentioned above: ()finding claims in scientific publications, and() providing support for browsing by starting with a claim and then following the links in an argumentation discourse network (ADN) (in our case, by making use of transclusion).In addition, we join the web of linked open data, by linking the metadata contained in KonneXSALT with some of the known repositories of scientific publications.
