The quality of an ontology is an important factor that determines its utility. In order to assure its quality, in addition to form-based evaluation as to whether the ontology being constructed is written properly in terms of its form (syntax), contentbased evaluation as to whether the ontology properly represents the target domain, whether the ontology actually serves for problem solving, etc. is also necessary. In this study, we investigate a framework for quality assurance of ontologies in

As form-based evaluation, Hozo provides various assistance functions for properly editing an ontology in compliance with the rules. As content-based evaluation, Hozo introduce a method for supporting ontology evaluation thorough conceptual maps which are generated according to the user ′ s viewpoint.
