Linked Data: Making things more accessible

Glaser, Hugh (2010) Linked Data: Making things more accessible At Data-Intensive Research: how should we improve our ability to use data.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Other)


In recent times the requirement to publish data and link it with other resources has become more acute. There are societal reasons for this, such as Freedom of Information and generating confidence in the accuracy of scientific predictions. There are also very practical reasons, as many scientific advances depend on being able to combine the data from multiple datasets to gain insights that could not be achieved by individual research groups. The Linked Data Initiative ( addresses some of these issues, as it aims to provide a framework for linking datasets and other resources; this presentation will look at how researchers can begin to join the Linked Data world.
