The semantic web at its core includes a set of collaborative working groups, design principles, and a verity of facilitative technologies. A few parts of the Semantic Web are projected as potential future possibilities that have not yet been put into practice or executed. The formal elements of Semantic Web include notations like RDF Schema, the Web Ontology Language, Resource Description Framework, a variety of data interchange formats like N3, N-Triples, Turtle, RDF/XML, which intend on providing a prescribed description of terms, relationships and concepts within the knowledge domain given.Man has the capability of using the Web to carry out his day to day chores. one may use the Web to find the meanings of words, to reserve a movie ticket, to book a flight, to find information about something, etc. Anyhow the information available on the Web is designed in such a manner that it can be read only by the people and not by the computers, so the computer is unable to carry out such tasks without being directed by man.The vision of information which is understood by computers and enables them to perform a work which is tedious which involves combining, sharing and finding information on the Web is enabled by Semantic web.Semantic Web will be beneficial to semantic publishing in a great manner, it is expected that Semantic Web will bring revolution to scientific publishing like sharing of experimental data on the Internet and real-time publishing. W3C HCLS group’s Scientific Publishing Task Force is now exploring this essential idea.Due to the fast growth in the usage of Web, with the renovation and innovation of information content technologies, Semantic Web application areas are experiencing an increased interest. The Semantic Web provides ameans for the realization of Enterprise Information Systems and is regarded as an integrator across different content and information systems and applications.
