With the purpose of building upon standard web technologies, open linked data serves as a useful way to connect previously unrelated data and to publish structured data on the web. The application of these elements leads to the creation of data commons called semantic web.

Cases on Open-Linked Data and Semantic Web Applications brings together new theories, research findings and case studies which cover the recent developments and approaches towards applied open linked data and semantic web in the context of information systems. By enhancing the understanding of open linked data in business, science and information technologies, this reference source aims to be useful for academics, researchers, and practitioners.

Author(s)/Editor(s) Biography

Patricia Ordóñez de Pablos is a professor in the Department of Business Administration and Accountability in the Faculty of Economics at The University of Oviedo (Spain). Her teaching and research interests focus on the areas of strategic management, knowledge management, intellectual capital, and China. She serves as an Associate Editor for the Behaviour and Information Technology journal. Additionally, she is Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Learning and Intellectual Capital (IJLIC) and the International Journal of Strategic Change Management (IJSCM). She is also Editor-in-Chief of IGI Global’s International Journal of Asian Business and Information Management (IJABIM), as well as editor for a number of IGI Global book publications and full book series.
Miltiadis D. Lytras has co-edited/co-edits, 25 special issues in International Journals (e.g., IEEE Transaction on Knowledge and Data Engineering, IEEE Internet Computing, IEEE Transactions on Education, Computers in Human Behaviour, etc.) and has authored/[co-]edited 12 books (e.g., Open Source for Knowledge and Learning Management, Ubiquitous and Pervasive Knowledge Management, Intelligent Learning Infrastructures for Knowledge Intensive Organizations, and Semantic Based Information Systems). He is the founder and officer of the Semantic Web and Information Systems Special Interest Group in the association for information systems ( He serves as the (Co) Editor-in-Chief of 12 international journals (e.g., International Journal of Knowledge and Learning, International Journal of Technology Enhanced Learning, International Journal on Social and Humanistic Computing, International Journal on Semantic Web and Information Systems, International Journal on Digital Culture and Electronic Tourism, International Journal of Electronic Democracy, International Journal of Electronic Banking, and International Journal of Electronic Trade) while he is an associate editor or editorial board member of seven more.
Robert D. Tennyson is currently a Professor of Educational Psychology and Technology in the Learning and Cognition, at the University of Minnesota. In addition to his faculty position, he is also the Program Coordinator for Psychological Foundations of Education. His published works range from basic theoretical articles on human learning, to applied books on instructional design and technology. He is editor of the scientific journal, Computers in Human Behavior, published by Elsevier Science which is now in its 17th year, as well as serving on several editorial boards for professional journals.

His research and publications include topics such as cognitive learning and complex cognitive processes, intelligent systems, complex-dynamic simulations, testing and measurement, instructional design, and advanced learning technologies. At the present time, he is working with a German colleague on basic research in learning complex-advanced knowledge.

His international activities include directing a NATO-sponsored Advanced Research workshop (Barcelona) and a NATO Advanced Study Institute (Grimstad, Norway)—both on the topic of Automated Instructional Design and Delivery. He has recently directed an institute on technology in Athens and Kuala Lumpur. His other international activities include twice receiving a Fulbright Research Award to Germany and once to Russia. His teaching interests include psychology of learning, technology-based systems design, evaluation, and management systems.

Jose Emilio Labra Gayo obtained his PhD. in Computer Science Engineering in 2001 at the University of Oviedo with distinction. Since 2004, he is the Dean of the School of Computer Science Engineering at the University of Oviedo and he is also the main researcher of the Semantic Web research group WESO. The group collaborates is focused on practical applications of semantic web and linked open data and has been involved in several projects with industrial partners and public administrations. Apart of teaching in the University of Oviedo, He has been regularly invited to teach in several doctorate or postgraduate courses in the Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María, in Chile, or the Universidad Pontificia de Salamanca, in Madrid, Spain. His research interests are Semantic Web technologies, Programming Languages and Web Engineering, where he has published a number of papers in selected conferences and journals. He participates in several committees like the European Semantic Web Conference, the International Conference on Web Engineering or the International Workshop on Social Data on the Web.
