A Lightweight Provenance Pingback and Query Service for Web Publications

by Tom De Nies, Robert Meusel, Kai Eckert, Dominique Ritze, Anastasia Dimou, Laurens De Vocht, Ruben Verborgh, Erik Mannens, and Rik Van de Walle

Web resources can be linked directly to their provenance, as specified in W3C PROV-AQ. On its own, this solution places all responsibility to the resource’s publisher, who hopefully maintains and publishes provenance information. In reality, however, most publishers lack of incentives to publish the resources’ provenance, even if the authors would like such information to be published. Currently it is impossible to link existing resources to new provenance information, either provided by the author or a third party. In this paper, we present a solution for this problem, by implementing a lightweight, read/write provenance query service, integrated with a pingback mechanism, following PROV-AQ.
