By Silvio Peroni

This paintings offers with the functions of Semantic Publishing applied sciences within the criminal area, i.e., using Semantic internet applied sciences to handle concerns concerning the criminal Scholarly Publishing. study within the box of legislation has a protracted culture within the software of semantic applied sciences, reminiscent of Semantic internet and associated facts, to real-world eventualities. This publication investigates and proposes ideas for 3 major concerns that Semantic Publishing must handle in the context of the criminal Scholarly Publishing: the necessity of instruments for linking record textual content to a proper illustration of its which means; the inability of entire metadata schemas for describing files in keeping with the publishing vocabulary and the absence of powerful instruments and person interfaces for simply performing on semantic publishing versions and theories.

In specific, this paintings introduces EARMARK, a markup meta language that permits one to create markup files with no the structural and semantic limits imposed by means of markup languages corresponding to XML. EARMARK is a platform to hyperlink the content material layer of a rfile with its meant formal semantics and it may be used with the Semantic Publishing and Referencing (SPAR) Ontologies, one other subject during this booklet. SPAR Ontologies are a suite of formal types supplying an top semantic layer for describing the publishing area. utilizing EARMARK as a beginning for SPAR descriptions opens as much as a semantic characterisation of the entire facets of a rfile and of its components. ultimately, 4 common instruments are brought: LODE, KC-Viz, Graffoo and Gaffe.
