The intermittence of the connection between nodes and limited resources greatly impair the effectiveness of service information publication in Delay Tolerant Network (DTN). To overcome this problem, a multi-layer service information cooperative publication mechanism is proposed in this paper. Firstly, the social interaction network and service overlay network is established in the form of abstract weight graph. Then, the community division algorithm is used to analysis the social characteristics of service interaction and the social attribute based DTN model-S-DTN is constructed. Finally, the carrier nodes of the information publication is selected from neighbor set by computing utilization function based node context, and a multi-layer cooperative mechanism is proposed to achieve effective service information publication in DTN. The experiment results indicate that the proposed publication mechanism brings nearly the same success ratio as Epidemic Routing with lower delay and network loads. Additionally, it shows better performance in overall metrics than Prophet Routing.
