A Research Agenda for Linked Closed Data

A Research Agenda for Linked Closed Data

Abstract

While it is preferable that Linked Data is published without access or licence restrictions, there will always remain certain datasets which, perhaps due to financial considerations, cannot be published as Linked Open Data. If these valuable datasets do join the Web of Linked Data, it will be as Linked Closed Data - Linked Data with access and license restrictions. In this paper, we outline a research agenda for Linked Closed Data that considers the effects that access and license restrictions may have on the Web of Linked Data. If implemented poorly, access restrictions have the potential to break URI resolvability, but even when implemented well, we can expect them to affect dataset selection processes and inter-dataset link creation rates. Additionally, there remains the technical challenge of developing and standardising access restriction and automated payment techniques for the Web of Linked Data.
