User-driven specification of network information systems is required in many virtual professional communities, such as research networks. This paper introduces a method and an accompanying tool being developed to support the legitimate user-driven specification of network information systems. The need for method ontologies, organized in an ontological framework, is motivated. A key part of this framework, the core process ontology, is described. The application of the framework is illustrated
