The 'Core Ontology'

We developed the Core Ontology as the backbone OWL model used to define entities relevant to Nature Publishing Group content publishing.

The ontology includes both entities normally associated with the publishing domain (e.g. articles, journals, publishers), as well as more abstract concepts (e.g. agents, events) that group together other, more specialized, domain entities.
