The OOR Mission     (3B)

Priorities & Most Critical Tasks At Hand     (3C)

updated: 2012.07.10     (3C1)

  • 1. Systematically engage other communities to advance the state-of-the-art as well as to solicit content contributions     (3C2)
    • collaborate and solicit content contributions from the communities engaging in ontology research, development, engineering and applications     (3C2A)
    • collaborate and solicit content contributions from the communities engaging in digital content and knowledge organization structures     (3C2B)
  • 2. Identify compelling and relevant reference implementations and use cases of OOR, with a focus on demonstrating the application and value of OOR     (3C3)
    • consider possibilities in: bigdata, standards, ... bridging db-schema, xml, uml, ...     (3C3A)
  • 3. Prepare and adopt an OOR system architecture     (3C4)
    • define and adopt a set of API's     (3C4A)
    • define and adopt the set of ontology metadata (as an extension of OMV) that authors of the ontology are required to provide when they upload ontologies to the OOR     (3C4B)
    • define and adopt a core development platform     (3C4C)
  • 4. Initiate implementation of key development priorities     (3C5)
    • build out "gatekeeping" and move from just having an OOR-sandbox to having available instances of an OOR-sandbox and an OOR-production     (3C5A)
    • add CL support to OOR     (3C5B)
    • federation     (3C5C)
  • 5. get the work of this team funded; and help/support/coordinate members' teaming up and getting funded     (3C6)
    • start a regular "Funding" workshop series (just like Architecture+API, Metadata, Code-development, etc.)     (3C6A)
  • 6. continue with efforts in publicity and outreach     (3C7)
    • systematically get OOR-related presentations and papers into pertinent conferences and workshops     (3C7A)
  • 7. set up policies and process for contributing to OOR work     (3C8)
    • setup clear and easy policies and process to engage developers and have them contribute code     (3C8A)
    • getting ourselves into a position where team members can contribute code     (3C8B)
  • 8. regularly review requirements and existing standards to make sure we are on track     (3C9)

  • 2010.02.12 - OOR-sandbox v2.1 (powered by the NCBO BioPortal v2.1 technology) is now online at: - the community is invited to upload your open ontologies there and help test out this public OOR instance - kindly provide feedback to our mailing list(s)     (3D86)
  • 2010.01.22 - Announcement: our 2nd installation of the (public instance of) OOR-sandbox, running BioPortal v2.x) is now being staged at the url: (once this install stablizes, it be moved to our ongoing OOR-sandbox url and replace the earlier install running BioPortal v1.x) ... Developers and users are encouraged to test the install out, and report any problem to the [oor-forum] (user issues) or [oor-dev] (software bugs and issues) mailing list.     (3D87)

Project Mission     (3G)

The charter of the Open Ontology Repository (OOR) Initiative is to the promote the global use and sharing of ontologies by:     (3G1)

  • 2. enabling and facilitating open, federated, collaborative ontology repositories, and     (3G3)
  • 3. establishing best practices for expressing interoperable ontology and taxonomy work in registry-repositories.     (3G4)

... where,     (3G6)

"An ontology repository is a facility where ontologies and related information artifacts can be stored, retrieved and managed."     (3G7)

Note that the "Open Ontology Repository (OOR) Initiative" is supposed to be an independent effort, and is only being incubated in the Ontolog collaborative work environment, for the time being.     (3G8)
