||Currently, the conventional communication channel for reporting scientific results is Web electronic publishing of scientific articles in paper print formats, such as PDFs. The emergence of the Semantic Web and Linked Data environment provides new opportunities for communicating, sharing, and integrating scientific knowledge in digital formats that could overcome the limitations of the current print format, which is only suitable for reading by people. The results of scientific research can be published electronically and shared in structured, interlinked formats. This integrated knowledge network could be crawled by software agents, thereby facilitating semantic retrieval, knowledge reuse, validation of scientific results, identification of traces of scientific discoveries, new scientific insights, and identification of knowledge contradictions or inconsistencies. This paper explores the possibilities of this new environment for scientific publishing and reports the implementation of a prototype semantic publishing system, which publishes scientific articles in a paper print format and publishes the claims made in the conclusions of each article as structured triples using the Resource Description Framework format.
