We are happy to announce that our paper DBpedia – A Crystallization Point for the Web of Data has won the Journal of Web Semantics Most Cited Article 2006-2010 Award.
The paper appeared in the special issue “The Web of Data” in Volume 7, Issue 3 of the Journal of Web Semantics (JWS) Elsevier in 2009. Since its publishing, DBpedia became a hub on the Web of Data and a crucial resource for many research approaches. From that perspective, its not surprising that the paper gets cited a lot, although much has changed meanwhile in DBpedia: there is now the DBpedia ontology, we have a collaborative mapping system in place for aligning the DBpedia data with this ontology, and there is a increasing number of DBpedia internationalization efforts.
