SWJ Call for Papers on Health Care Linked Data

By on

The Semantic Web Journal has issued a call for papers on the topic of linked data for health care and the life sciences. According to the post, “Due to their descriptive nature and ongoing need to integrate large amounts of heterogeneous data, the areas of health care and the life sciences have long been used as a test-bed for the feasibility of Semantic Web technologies. Large scale integration projects like Bio2RDF, Chem2Bio2RDF, and the W3C HCLS’s (Health Care and Life Sciences) Linked Open Drug Data (LODD) have not only significantly contributed to the development of the Semantic Web’s Linked Data effort, but have also made social and technical contributions towards data integration, knowledge management, and knowledge discovery.”

It continues, “As efforts are now being made towards exposing and integrating biomedically relevant data with standardized vocabularies and ontologies, new challenges have arisen towards creating applications for clinical research and ultimately improved delivery of health care. Towards the goal of semantic interoperability of data and vocabularies in and across health care in the life sciences and the development of new functionality that this infrastructure provides, we invite high-quality original papers for a special issue on Linked Data for Health Care and the Life Sciences. The following types of papers will be accepted: full research papers, methodology papers, review papers, descriptions of ontologies, and application reports.”
