The Journal of Web Semantics solicits original
scientific contributions of high quality. Following the overall mission of the
journal, we emphasize the publication of papers that combine theories, methods
and experiments from different subject areas in order to deliver innovative
semantic methods and applications. The publication of large-scale experiments
and their analysis is also encouraged to clearly illustrate scenarios and
methods that introduce semantics into existing Web interfaces, contents and services.
