Introduction to SALT

Introduction

The SALT Annotation Ontology represents the connection layer between the rhetorical and argumentation and the document structure and content. In addition, it also captures a series of virtual elements that describe the shallow metadata of the modeled publication. These properties are considered to be virtual, because they are not actually part of the ontology, but defined by other ontologies, such as FOAF, DublinCore, SWRC and the Bibliographic Ontology (BIBO). Last, but not least, this ontology provides the gate to attaching domain knowledge to the publication.
