[please forgive any multiple copies you might receive]

Dear Colleagues,
Marshall and I have created a provenance ontology for research publications called PROV-PUB-O:
Would you please take some time to read its documentation and complete a
survey to help evaluate its usability at
Thanks a lot for your support, and feel free to forward the survey link to
anyone that may be interested.
Best Regards,
Linyun and Marshall

    Hi Paolo,
    Thanks for your time! To answer your questions:
    - This effort is a part of my PhD thesis work on "automatic provenance
    capturing for research publications"
    - It is a good point that PROV-PUB-O/S may need to be renamed since it does
    not have any dependency to PROV-O. It has its current name mainly due to
    the reason that it could be used together with PROV-PUB-O/P through the
    shared "Published Result" class (and its subclasses) to describe and locate
    of the final published result. We just want to emphasize that it belongs to
    PROV-PUB-O with the name. Getting rid of the "PROV" part may loosen its tie
    to PROV-PUB-O/P, but is likely to encourage its separate use to describe
    publication structures.
    - Thanks for the suggestion of making the trace of a published result "one
    way"! I agree that provenance graphs in this form are easier to read and
    Best Regards,
