Ontology is used to define terms and relations on the Semantic Web to form well-structured semantics of Web resources. Ontology revision refers to the process of updating ontology to ensure changes are made in a consistent manner. Belief revision theory deals with approaches to ensure consistency in the belief sets is maintained when beliefs need to be revised. This paper discusses the integration of belief revision theory to the ontology reengineering method as a means to ensure consistency in ontology revision.
