summary Among the new possibilities that the Semantic Web has enabled, the authoring task is considered as a key moment for semantic representation of knowledge to enhance publishing needs. New systems are emerging, delivering annotation and authoring issues based on ontologies. If we consider Semantic Web technologies as of today, what would be the skills needed from authors in order to produce documents compliant with the W3C recommendations and authoring environments that make full use of these possibilities? In this paper we present an assessment of ontology-based authoring tools, based on a specific criteria we developed to identify systems features and compliance with current recommendations. We have learned that, according to these systems, authors are being asked to perform additional knowledge structuring task that he/she is not familiar with. There is an eminent need in tackling these questions in the knowledge representation world, especially if we seek to give support to authors in developing more structured and well represented content knowledge, based on the potential that currently developed ontology technologies and solutions have. To support this need, we have proposed some requirements and a model of architecture of ontology-based authoring environment for the Semantic Web, composed of modules that integrate current technologies, making full use of existing features and proposing the development of new trends.
