Semantic Web Journal: Call for Special Issue Proposals


Semantic Web research is interdisciplinary in nature. Indeed, progress
towards the Semantic Web vision requires the incorporation of
fundamental state-of-the-art and future developments from many domains
including Computer & Information Science, Cognitive Science, Geographic
Information Science, the social sciences, and many more. To establish
bridges between these domains, it is thus important to demonstrate what
and how they contribute to the Semantic Web vision, and what the
Semantic Web can offer in return to these disciplines.

Hence, the Semantic Web Journal calls for Special Issue proposals on
topics which (a) are within the topical realm of a neighboring domain
but (b) contribute directly or indirectly to Semantic Web research.
Research published in such special issues should strengthen the in-depth 
information exchange between disciplines by providing novel and 
high-quality  contributions and at the same time demonstrate the impact 
on foundational research questions relevant for Semantic Web. While such 
manuscripts can be written with a specific audience in mind, the key 
ideas and contributions should be accessible to the broader Semantic web 

Proposals for special issues shall be sent to the Editors-in-Chair
(contact at semantic-web-journal.net) and contain the following information 
in a single PDF file:

* Names and affiliations of all guest editors

* Topic of the special issue

* Tentative list of Guest Editorial Board members

* A short description of the topic

* Why the topic is currently of interest

* Why the topic is relevant to this call

* Credentials of the guest editors regarding their research impact and
their community standing with respect to the topic

* A draft call for papers, including a suggested time-line

It will be assumed that all proposed guest editors are aware of the
journal's open and transparent review policy described at

Submission deadline: 1st of December, 2011
