Abstract

Interlinking research objects using the RDF links facilitates sharing and data discovery on the Web of Data. This works toward enriching the research repositories by linking their research artifacts to various scientific or even general data on the Web. In this paper, we experiment on an interlinking approach over Dryad, a research object repository, to a digital library dataset in the Linked Open Data cloud. We fetch data from both targets in different steps, run an interlinking tool and report as well as analyze the results. The generated outputs and assessed matched links show that interlinking a research dataset like Dryad to Web of Data brings an added value to the repository, as it connects its research artefacts to scientific objects of other datasets.
