Linked Periodical Data
I’ve had an idea for awhile that it’d be a really useful thing to have metadata about periodicals (journals, newspapers, etc.) available as linked data. After some informal chats about this with some people at Talis (and Ed Summers), Chris Clarke decided to throw out a somewhat more concrete idea for wider input.
The most important initial step is to find sources of good, clean data that can be issued under an open data license. If you have any ideas or would like to help, please followup on the Bibliographic Ontology Specification Group.
