BackgroundOntologies and controlled terminologies have become increasingly important in biomedical research. Researchers use ontologies to annotate their data with ontology terms, enabling better data integration and interoperability across disparate datasets. However, the number, variety and complexity of current biomedical ontologies make it cumbersome for researchers to determine which ones to reuse for their specific needs. To overcome this problem, in 2010 the National Center for… Expand
Exploiting Ontology Recommendation Using Text Categorization Approach
TLDR
The main consequences of the proposed framework are 1) ontologies of a corpus can be organized effectively, no effort and time are required to select an appropriate ontology, and 3) computational complexity is only limited to the use of unsupervised learning techniques. Expand
CEDAR OnDemand: a browser extension to generate ontology-based scientific metadata
TLDR
“CEDAR OnDemand” is presented, a browser extension powered by the NCBO (National Center for Biomedical Ontology) BioPortal that enables users to seamlessly enter ontology-based metadata through existing web forms native to individual repositories. Expand
OntoYield: A Semantic Approach for Context-Based Ontology Recommendation Based on Structure Preservation
TLDR
A semantic algorithm for ontology recommendation has been proposed, where query-relevant ontologies are recommended by preserving the relationships between the ontological entities by computed using the query and the concepts initially and further between thequery and description logics. Expand
Popularity-Driven Ontology Ranking Using Qualitative Features
TLDR
This work proposes a novel approach to ontology ranking by selecting a range of relevant qualitative features, proposing a popularity measure for ontologies based on scholarly data, and finding that qualitative features help to improve the prediction of the relevance degree in terms of popularity. Expand
Challenges for Ontology Repositories and Applications to Biomedicine & Agronomy
TLDR
This position paper describes six high level challenges for ontology repositories: metadata & selection, multilingualism, alignment, new generic ontology-based services, annotations & linked data, and interoperability & scalability. Expand
The Role of Community and Social Metrics in Ontology Evaluation: An Interview Study of Ontology Reuse
TLDR
This paper reports on a qualitative study with interviews of ontologists and knowledge engineers in different domains, ranging from biomedical field to manufacturing industry, and investigates the challenges they face while searching, evaluating, and selecting an ontology for reuse. Expand
A Query Relevant Context Driven Ontology Recommendation System incorporating Semantics Preservation and Semantic Ontology Matching-IJAERD
The World Wide Web is evolving into a standard Semantic Web that requires efficient modeling of knowledge bases. Knowledge Bases are the constructed mainly based on the domain level segregation ofExpand
A Methodology for Ontology Reuse: The Case of the Abdominal Ultrasound Ontology
TLDR
The result shows that ontology reuse is beneficial especially in the biomedical field as it allows for developers from the non-technical background to build and use domain specific ontology with ease and for developers with technical background to develop ontologies with minimal involvements from domain experts.

Building a biomedical ontology recommender web service
TLDR
The Biomedical Ontology Recommender web service uses textual metadata or a set of keywords describing a domain of interest and suggests appropriate ontologies for annotating or representing the data and evaluates and discusses the results of several recommendation heuristics in the context of three real world use cases. Expand
BiOSS: A system for biomedical ontology selection
TLDR
This paper presents BiOSS, a novel system for the selection of biomedical ontologies that evaluates the adequacy of an ontology to a given domain according to three different criteria; results are promising and show the usefulness of BiOSS to solve real-world ontology selection problems. Expand
A Multi-criteria Approach for Automatic Ontology Recommendation Using Collective Knowledge
TLDR
An approach for the automatic recommendation of ontologies is proposed based on measuring the adequacy of an ontology to a given context according to three independent criteria; results show the importance of using collective knowledge in the fields of ontology evaluation and recommendation. Expand
BioPortal: enhanced functionality via new Web services from the National Center for Biomedical Ontology to access and use ontologies in software applications
TLDR
