Finding Quality Issues in SKOS Vocabularies [article]

Christian Mader and Bernhard Haslhofer and Antoine Isaac
2012 arXiv   pre-print
We identified potential quantifiable quality issues and formalized them into computable quality checking functions that can find affected resources in a given SKOS vocabulary.  ...  Here we investigate how we can support taxonomists in improving SKOS vocabularies by pointing out quality issues that go beyond the integrity constraints defined in the SKOS specification.  ...  Analysis of Existing SKOS Vocabularies We used the qSKOS quality assessment tool to find possible quality issues in existing SKOS vocabularies.  ...

Assessing and Improving the Quality of SKOS Vocabularies

Osma Suominen, Christian Mader
2013 Journal on Data Semantics  
In an analysis of a representative set of 24 SKOS vocabularies, we found all of them to contain structural errors and/or other quality problems.  ...  Assessment of vocabulary quality is important for determining the suitability of vocabularies for reuse in applications and for improving vocabulary development processes.  ...  We found possible quality issues in all of the analyzed vocabularies, in line with findings of our earlier studies of SKOS vocabulary quality [41, 26] .  ...

Quality Assurance in Collaboratively Created Web Vocabularies [chapter]

Christian Mader
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In recent years, controlled vocabularies have become available on the Web using SKOS 1 , i.e. they are linked to each other in order to be used in an interoperable way.  ...  In order to support vocabulary contributors to create high quality vocabularies, we propose a method that semi-automatically ensures vocabulary quality in collaborative authoring processes.  ...  With the increasing availability of vocabularies expressed in SKOS, finding and utilzing a well-accepted and wellmaintained vocabulary becomes even more challenging.  ...

Exploring and Exploiting(?) the Awkward Connections Between SKOS and OWL

Stefan Belk, Gerhard Wohlgenannt, Axel Polleres
2015 International Semantic Web Conference  
In the Semantic Web, the Web Ontology Language (OWL) vocabulary is used for the representation of formal ontologies, while the Simple Knowledge Organisation System (SKOS) is a vocabulary designed for thesauri  ...  Next, we also investigate if additional information can be inferred from joint usage with SKOS in order to enrich semantic inferences through OWL alonealthough SKOS was designed without formal semantics  ...  This work has been supported by project uComp, which receives the funding support of EPSRC EP/K017896/1, FWF 1097-N23, and ANR-12-CHRI-0003-03, in the CHIST-ERA ERA-NET programme.  ...

Validation Rules for Assessing and Improving SKOS Mapping Quality [article]

Hong Sun, Jos De Roo, Marc Twagirumukiza, Giovanni Mels, Kristof Depraetere, Boris De Vloed, Dirk Colaert
2013 arXiv   pre-print
Meanwhile, expressing mappings between concepts in different terminology systems is also possible. This paper discusses potential quality issues in using SKOS to express these terminology mappings.  ...  Problematic patterns are defined and corresponding rules are developed to automatically detect situations where the mappings either result in 'SKOS Vocabulary Hijacking' to the source vocabularies or cause  ...  Interested readers may find details in the following related resources.  ...

BestMap: Context-Aware SKOS Vocabulary Mappings in OWL 2

Rinke Hoekstra
2009 International Semantic Web Conference  
This paper describes an approach to SKOS vocabulary mapping that takes into account the context in which vocabulary terms are used in annotations.  ...  The standard vocabulary mapping properties in SKOS only allow for binary mappings between concepts.  ...  As we are dealing with SKOS vocabularies, it seems useful to integrate SKOS's semantic relations with this approach. There are two issues here.  ...

Lifting EMMeT to OWL Getting the Most from SKOS [chapter]

Bijan Parsia, Tahani Alsubait, Jared Leo, Veronique Malaisé, Sophie Forge, Michelle Gregory, Andrew Allen
2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we present a case study of modifying a large, existing SKOS vocabulary partially into OWL.  ...  SKOS and OWL are quite different but complimentary languages. SKOS is targeted at "cognitive" or "navigational" representations, that is, thesauri, controlled vocabularies, and the like.  ...  Whenever possible, EMMeT make use of existing standard properties, like the Dublin Core set for metadata, the PROV vocabulary for Provenance, RDF, SKOS and SKOS-XL.  ...
