Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • The Internet
  • World Wide Web
  • Operating system

Tim Berners-Lee mostly deals with World Wide Web, Semantic Web, Data Web, Social Semantic Web and The Internet. His work in World Wide Web tackles topics such as Information retrieval which are related to areas like Information management. His Data Web study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Web standards, Linked data and Semantic Web Stack.

His Linked data study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as RDF and Web modeling. His Semantic Web Stack study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Semantic computing and Web intelligence. His studies in The Internet integrate themes in fields like Hypermedia, Information technology and Data model.

His most cited work include:

  • The Semantic Web" in Scientific American (6214 citations)
  • Linked Data - the story so far (3943 citations)
  • Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1 (3201 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Tim Berners-Lee mainly focuses on World Wide Web, Semantic Web, Web standards, Social Semantic Web and Data Web. His work in Semantic Web Stack, Linked data, Web intelligence, Web modeling and Web development is related to World Wide Web. His Web development research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Web design, Web navigation and Web 2.0.

His work on RDF as part of general Semantic Web research is often related to Internet security, thus linking different fields of science. His study in Web standards is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Social media and Microblogging. His research on Data Web frequently connects to adjacent areas such as WS-Policy.

He most often published in these fields:

  • World Wide Web (73.91%)
  • Semantic Web (33.04%)
  • Web standards (24.35%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2019)?

  • World Wide Web (73.91%)
  • Linked data (20.87%)
  • Semantic Web (33.04%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Tim Berners-Lee mainly investigates World Wide Web, Linked data, Semantic Web, The Internet and Social web. His study ties his expertise on Resource together with the subject of World Wide Web. His study on Linked data also encompasses disciplines like

  • Interoperability that intertwine with fields like Structure, Linked Data Platform and Semantic publishing,
  • Data science most often made with reference to Open data.

Tim Berners-Lee has included themes like Component and Web 2.0 in his Semantic Web study. The various areas that he examines in his The Internet study include Information Dissemination, Web science, Data mining and Internet privacy. His work carried out in the field of Web standards brings together such families of science as Social Semantic Web, Web intelligence, Social media, Microblogging and Data Web.

Between 2011 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • Linked Open Government Data: Lessons from Data.gov.uk (214 citations)
  • Universal Resource Identifiers in WWW: A Unifying Syntax for the Expression of Names and Addresses of Objects on the Network as used in the World-Wide Web (135 citations)
  • A Demonstration of the Solid Platform for Social Web Applications (57 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • The Internet
  • World Wide Web
  • Operating system

Tim Berners-Lee spends much of his time researching World Wide Web, The Internet, Linked data, Social web and Semantic Web. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Syntax and Component. His Syntax research integrates issues from Identifier, Internet Standard, Resource and Expression.

His research in Component intersects with topics in Information Dissemination, Web science and Data mining. His Interoperability research incorporates elements of Structure, Semantic publishing and Linked Data Platform. His Server study incorporates themes from Access control, End user, Authentication, SPARQL and Web application.
