Validating Ontologies with OOPS!
Ontology quality can be affected by the difficulties involved in ontology modelling which may imply the appearance of anomalies in ontologies. This situation leads to the need of validating ontologies, that is, assessing their quality and correctness. Ontology validation is a key activity in different ontology engineering scenarios such as development and selection. This paper contributes to the ontology validation activity by proposing a web-based tool, called OOPS!, independent of any ontology development environment, for detecting anomalies in ontologies. This tool will help developers to improve ontology quality by automatically detecting potential errors.
