Formal nomenclature is essential to scientific communication because of the importance of clearly specifying the entities under discussion. It takes on additional importance as computational agents are brought in to help marshal and process the enormous amount of information available to scientists, as computational agents are unable to resolve most of the ambiguities that human readers tolerate. In this note we will examine some examples of naming systems used in science, and extrapolate from this analysis to consider the suitability and effective use of Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs) in computationally mediated communication about science.
