Abstract

We present an ontology called Science designed for representing scientific laws and rejected hypotheses from scientific papers and experimental results in the area of beef production and consumption. The ontology is designed on the basis of 1) classifications of scientific laws presented in the works of Polish philosophers of science and nature: K. Ajdukiewicz and W. Krajewski and 2) the analysis of empirical material from the project database of articles. Science imports OntoBeef ontology of the subject domain. Both ontologies, i.e. Science and OntoBeef, are based on DOLCE. It is shown how to represent scientific laws in the ontologies and how to generate new scientific laws from the old ones coded in the Science.
