Open Journal of Semantic Web (OJSW): Call for Papers

* About OJSW
The Open Journal of Semantic Web (OJSW), an open access online journal, 
publishes original and creative research results on the Semantic Web. 
OJSW distributes its articles under the open access model. All articles

Semantic Web. There is no restriction on the length of the papers.

* Aims & Scope
The current World Wide Web enables an easy, instant access to a vast 
amount of online information.  However, the content in the Web is 
typically for human consumption, and is not tailored to be 

The Semantic Web, which is intended to establish a

- Microformats (e.g. RDFa)
- Ontology-based Approaches for
   - Modelling
   - Mapping
   - Evolution
   - Real-world ontologies
- Reasoning Approaches
   - Real-World Applications
   - Efficient Algorithms
