Abstract: Science thrives when ideas, hypotheses, data and knowledge are quickly and easily shared within disciplines and communities. Traditionally, this was done through personal interactions, letters, lectures, and articles in professional journals. The advent of the Internet and Web accelerated information sharing with tools like email, online publishing, digital libraries and comprehensive search engines such as Google. Researchers and developers are now exploring a new idea that many believe will further enhance scientists' ability to share knowledge on the Semantic Web.
