The Role of Ontology Design Patterns in Linked Data Projects
The contribution of this paper is twofold: (i) a UML stereotype for component diagrams that allows for representing ontologies as a set of interconnected Ontology Design Patterns, aimed at supporting the communication between domain experts and ontology engineers; (ii) an analysis of possible approaches to ontology reuse and the definition of four methods according to their impact on the sustainability and stability of the resulting ontologies and knowledge bases. To conceptually prove the effectiveness of our proposals, we present two real LOD projects.
