SocioBiblog: Enabling Communication on Bibliography with Semantic Blogging

Aman Shakya, Hideaki Takeda, Vilas Wuwongse and Ikki Ohmukai

Sharing of information about publications is very important in a research community. The paper describes a system which demonstrates how semantic blogging can be used for the purpose. It incorporates SWRC ontology into blogging for entering metadata about publications; facilitates commenting on publications and provides a decentralized aggregation mechanism to aggregate publications in the community. RSS aggregation has been extended to handle metadata in BuRST feeds. The system uses FOAF links of authors and friends to explore the social network of the research community and gather RSS/BuRST feeds.
