  • Paper v2 is derived from paper v1 + rebuttal + reviewer feedback
  • Sequential chapters
  • Paper is a follow-up from a proposal

These quite specific relations could be displayed differently from replies/annoations in the UI (from both ends of the relation, eg. derived-from and has-derivatives).

See also for whatever is applicable via @hvdsomp . I think we currently cover the use cases there using the PROV-O,, Web Annotation RDF vocabularies.

Aside: I'm not particularly a fan of HTML data attributes as they require special processing, but good to keep this in our radar.

Thanks for putting this comment in, Sarven. A few things:

  • I am not sure that what you are trying to achieve with PROV-O etc is what Robust Links wants to achieve. Robust Links is about papers linking to "web-at-large" resources. And about the fact that these resources evolve in two ways: they disappear (link rot) and their content changes when compared to when they were linked to (content drift). Robust Links is about providing a mechanisms to revisit the state of the referenced/linked resource as it was when it was referenced. It works, indeed, by means of HTML5 data- attributes and leverages the Memento protocol and associated infrastructure to find a temporally appropriate resource version in web archives, resource versioning systems, etc.
  • I think what you want to achieve using PROV-O is more along the lines of what is described at Resource Versioning and Memento. That is a very lightweight, REST/HATEOS approach to expose and access temporal versions of resources.
  • The data- attributes we use for Robust Links are processed using utterly simple RobustLinks JavaScript embedded in the page that includes the data- link decorations. I don't consider this any more special processing than would be required to deal with eg PROV-O,, ...
