Abstract

The rapid growth in the number of ontologies has not met with the wide adoption of ontology in practice. Ontology evaluation can promote ontology use by facilitating the selection of a good ontology. Despite that a host of ontology evaluation methodologies are available, many of them are fragmentary and strongly tied to ontology development methodologies. Based on a review of extant ontology evaluation methods, we propose a framework for ontology evaluation. The framework provides a holistic view of ontology evaluation, suggesting both fundamental ontology dimensions and concrete criteria.
