Abstract : Linked Data consumers may need explanations for debug-ging or understanding the reasoning behind producing the data. They may need the possibility to transform long explanations into more un-derstandable short explanations. In this paper, we discuss an approach to explain reasoning over Linked Data. We introduce a vocabulary to de-scribe explanation related metadata and we discuss how publishing these metadata as Linked Data enables explaining reasoning over Linked Data. Finally, we present an approach to summarize these explanations taking into account user specified explanation filtering criteria.
