Ranking Ontologies with AKTiveRank

Alani, Harith, Brewster, Christopher and Shadbolt, Nigel (2006) Ranking Ontologies with AKTiveRank At The 5th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC), Georgia.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Ontology search and reuse is becoming increasingly important as the quest for methods to reduce the cost of constructing such knowledge structures continues. A number of ontology libraries and search engines are coming to existence to facilitate locating and retrieving potentially relevant ontologies. The number of ontologies available for reuse is steadily growing, and so is the need for methods to evaluate and rank existing ontologies in terms of their relevance to the needs of the knowledge engineer. This paper presents AKTiveRank, a prototype system for ranking ontologies based on a number of structural metrics.
