In the context of ontology evolution in real world applications, particularly in the field of semantic web, ontologies are called to change in their structure as well as their semantic. It is necessary to evaluate the quality based on stability to make analysis to get appropriate enrichment manner for ontology evolution. In this paper, we introduce a new approach with that aims making three contributions. First, we present a new aspect of ontology quality based on its stability. Second, we

Third, we provide an experimental method to evaluate this new aspect of quality within two processes: individual measure based on semantic similarity measures and global measure based on ontology spectrum.
