This paper describes an Open Linked Data back- linking service, a generic architecture component to support the discovery of useful links between items across highly connected data sets. Using Public Sector Information (PSI) currently available as Linked Data, we demonstrate that contemporary publishing practices do not adequately support the ability to navigate or automatically traverse between resources published by different vendors, or the capacity to discover information relevant to a particular URI. Although some useful services in this area have been developed, such as large triple indexes of published data, and the collection of sameAs relationships between individuals, we believe that an important component is missing: a mechanism to discover the backlinks to relevant resources that cannot be found by direct URI resolution. We present the implementation of such a component, integrating data from various PSI sources.
