Abstract

The lack of methods for evaluating ontologies in laboratories can be an obstacle to their use in companies. This paper presents a set of emerging ideas in evaluation of ontologies useful for: (1) ontologies developers in the lab, as a foundation from which to perform technical evaluations; (2) end users of ontologies in companies, as a point of departure in the search for the best ontology for their systems; and (3) future research, as a basis upon which to perform progressive and disciplined investigations in this area. After briefly exploring some general questions such as: why, what, when, how and where to evaluate; who evaluates; and, what to evaluate against, we focus on the definition of a set of criteria useful in the evaluation process. Finally, we use some of these criteria in the evaluation of the Bibliographic-Data [5] ontology.
