XBRL is an emerging standard that allows enterprises to present their financial accounting information in a XML format, according to their applicable legislation. In this paper we present a system which offer the possibility of adding semantic annotations contained in a financial ontology to XBRL reports. Furthermore, we present a new approach that will apply probabilistic methods to determine the degree of similarity between concepts of different XBRL taxonomies. . This approach will allow invertors, enterprises and XBRL users in general, to perform comparisons between reports that fit onto different taxonomies, even belonging to different countries.

About this site

This website has been set up for WWW2009 by Christopher Gutteridge of the University of Southampton, using our EPrints software.


We (Southampton EPrints Project) intend to preserve the files and HTML pages of this site for many years, however we will turn it into flat files for long term preservation. This means that at some point in the months after the conference the search, metadata-export, JSON interface, OAI etc. will be disabled as we "fossilize" the site. Please plan accordingly. Feel free to ask nicely for us to keep the dynamic site online longer if there's a rally good (or cool) use for it... [this has now happened, this site is now static]
