“Introduction to the Semantic Web and Semantic Web Services” Book Review: The book contains an introduction to the semantic web and semantic web services. It builds a firm foundation in the concept of the semantic web, its principal technologies, its real-world applications and its relevant coding examples. It discusses its major technical enablers and the relationships among these components. It presents several applications of the semantic web, including swoogle, FOAF and a detailed design of a semantic web search engine. It also covers the building blocks of an advanced web technology. The book concludes with discussions on how to add semantics to traditional Web service descriptions and how to develop a search engine for semantic web services.

3. “Semantic Web Technologies and Legal Scholarly Publishing (Law, Governance and Technology Series)” by Silvio Peroni

“Semantic Web Technologies and Legal Scholarly Publishing (Law, Governance and Technology Series)” Book Review: The book deals with the applications of semantic publishing technologies in the legal domain, i.e. the use of semantic web technologies to address issues related to the legal scholarly publishing. It investigates and proposes solutions for three main issues that semantic publishing needs to address within the context of the legal scholarly publishing. It also lists the need of tools for linking document text to a formal representation of its meaning. It discusses the lack of complete metadata schemas for describing documents. The book introduces EARMARK, a markup meta language that allows one to create markup documents without the structural and semantic limits imposed by markup languages such as XML. It also introduces four user-friendly tools like LODE, KC-Viz, graffoo and gaffe.

“Foundations of Semantic Web Technologies” Book Review: The book discusses on semantic web technologies standardized by the world wide web consortium: RDF and SPARQL enable data exchange and querying, RDFS and OWL provide expressive ontology modeling and RIF supports rule-based modeling. It describes methods for specifying, querying and reasoning with ontological information. Also it explores topics that are clearly beyond foundations such as tools applications and engineering aspects. It contains many pointers that are useful for employing semantic web technologies in practice.

5. “Semantic Web Technologies for Intelligent Engineering Applications” by Stefan Biffl and Marta Sabou

“Semantic Web Technologies for Intelligent Engineering Applications” Book Review: This book discusses how to create intelligent engineering applications (IEAs). It lists guidelines on how they can be applied in multi-disciplinary engineering settings characteristic of engineering production systems. It also has case studies from various engineering domains demonstrating how SWTs can be used to create IEAs. At the end it contains assessment of the strengths, weaknesses and compatibilities of SWTs and an outlook on future opportunities for applying SWTs to create IEAs in flexible industrial production systems.
