Short Bio

Simeon Warner is Director of the Repositories Group at Cornell University Library. Current projects include development of an archival repository, the arXiv e-print archive (, and Project Euclid ( He was one of the developers of arXiv and his research interests include web information systems, interoperability, plagiarism detection, and open-access scholarly publishing. He has been actively involved with the Open Archives Initiative (OAI) since its inception and was one of the authors of the OAI-PMH and OAI-ORE specifications.

He worked at Los Alamos National Laboratory before moving with arXiv to Cornell in 2001. Prior to working on arXiv, he worked in the Physics Department at Syracuse University in computational physics, a discipline in which arXiv has eclipsed conventional journals as the preferred means of scholarly communication. He has a PhD in physics from the University of Manchester, UK.

Interest in LODLAM

I'm particularly interested in 1) collaborating on information around scholarly articles and authorship, in particular how we can use LOD to improve the reuse of arXiv data/articles, and 2) in the library context collaborating on work to enrich the information environment around information resources by providing context, annotation, etc using LOD.

Linked Open Data Projects

I was an author of OAI-ORE ( I am working with ORCID and the ODIN project to exchange authorship data related to arXiv articles in LOD. We should be publishing and updating this data on a regular basis before the summit. In the Cornell library we developed VIVO and are working in this year to develop a LOD based "integration layer" to give context around library information resources and to surface this information in our discovery system.
