Ontology Governance

The following lightweight approach to ontology governance was approved and put in place 24 January 2012. Responsibility for each named ontology is listed under Contact. As the new ESIP Ontology Portal has come into place, a review of the governance procedures began in August 2012 and a session will be held at the 2013 Winter meeting on this topic.



The list contact responds to additions, questions, updates, corrections for ontologies listed below.

Other resolution/ decisions, if needed, are made by: ontology contact, cluster chair and one other member at-large. Current cluster chair is Peter Fox, current member at large is Robert (Bob) Downs.

We plan to move to an online/ comment/ ticket system for more automated and tracked issues/ responses when the bioportal implementation is available (late summer 2012).
