irON (instance record and Object Notation) is a abstract notation and associated vocabulary for specifying RDF (Resource Description Framework) triples and schema in non-RDF forms.
irON Logo
Its purpose is to allow users and tools in non-RDF formats to stage interoperable datasets using RDF.

The notation supports writing RDF and schema in JSON (irJSON), XML (irXML) and comma-delimited (CSV) formats (commON). The notation specification includes guidance for creating instance records (including in bulk), linkages to existing ontologies and schema, and schema definitions.

Profiles and examples and code parsers and converters are also provided for the irXML, irJSON and commON serializations. Here are the links to irON materials:
