Type: NeOn Project Deliverable
Institution: The Open University
This is the first in the series of reports on the evaluation of the impact of the NeOn methodology in a range of selected categories on the performance of ontology designers. The purpose of this report is to provide an evaluative, user-based perspective on such aspects of the NeOn methodology as the use of ontology design patterns, selection of ontology network life cycle models, and the support for ontology specification and localization. In addition, we provide updated plans for more advanced testing of methods supporting ontology reuse in the social context.
