The concept and computer methods for the implementation of new form-linked data technologies for scientific communication are observed. This concept is being advanced by the Internet creator Tim Berners-Lee in the framework of the general idea of the Semantic WEB with the introduction in internet pages of descriptions that are understood by computers. An overview of the technologies and tools that enable online publishing of open data so that they are automatic linked with thematically related resources is given. Many advantages of the new form of publications in the field of science, viz., the integration of heterogeneous data, access from publications to the original arrays of raw data, and to software, as well as standardization of terms and concepts of the application domain through anappeal to ontologies and vocabularies posted on the web are shown.
