Abstract: The Semantic Web (SW) is one of the main efforts aiming to enhance
human and machine interaction by representing data in an understandable way
for machines to mediate data and services. It is a fast-moving and
multidisciplinary field. This study conducts a thorough bibliometric analysis of
the field by collecting data from Web of Science (WOS) and Scopus for the
period of 1960-2009. It utilizes a total of 44,157 papers with 651,673 citations
from Scopus, and 22,951 papers with 571,911 citations from WOS. Based on
these papers and citations, it evaluates the research performance of the SW
by identifying the most productive players, major scholarly communication
media, highly cited authors, influential papers and emerging stars.
