Web services discovery is one of major processes of the Service-Oriented Architecture and the services matching algorithm plays an important role in the service discovery process. Some semantic matching algorithms have been proposed in order to overcome the drawbacks of the syntax-based techniques. In this paper, we propose a hybrid semantic Web service matching algorithm, called LRIR, that combines logic based reasoning with syntactic text based similarity. Experimental results show that the proposed hybrid approach outperforms the existing techniques purely based on logic reasoning or text similarity.
