Following the fruitful discussions about an early version [1] of the Web Science Subject Categorization (WSSC) system, we present a “stable” version (in SKOS [2] of the first epistemological index for the scientific study of the Web. The WSSC aims to facilitate communication and collaboration among scholars of the Web from various perspectives i.e. computational, mathematical, social, economic and legal. WSSC 1.0 by no means is “written in stone” and must be considered as the very first attempt to discuss a Science Subject Categorization for the Web ecosystem as a central subject of study.
