Ontology Repository Evaluation Roadmap
This Ontology Repository Evaluation Roadmap is intended to lay out a candidate approach leading ESIP toward solutions for ontology repositories.
The Roadmap is premised on the assessment that solutions are needed, and that ESIP is well situated to determine their requirements and identify a path toward sustainability.
