    Purpose: To visualis the knowledge of the Information Science (IS) domain.
    Implementation of the ontology of (IS) has a huge impact in many areas for instance,
    for people and agents when they collaborate and working as a team project
    with the differences of their experience and opinions. Furthermore, it is a key
    element for scholars to gain consistent information in a specific domain..
    Aims & Objectives: Of this study is to provide a visualisation of area that
    is shared by members of VCops, by describing the terminology and conceptual
    model of Information Science.
    Design/methodology/approach: Building a new ontology requires
    conceptualisation, requirements analysis, formalisation, implementation, maintaining
    an evaluating.
    Research limitations:The research focuses only on virtual communities of
    practice of around the world. The research conducted to share knowledge between
    bodies of professionals in the domain of Information science.
    Practical implications: The results will provide support for the recent efforts
    for knowledge base systems. Also Ontology is not just for knowledge based
    systems, but it can be used for software systems as a model of words. Hence, it
    supports semantic web to leverage the research retrieval.
    Findings: The OntoCop website is designed to support groups to interact, it
    contains tools to enable participations communicate effectively as Forum, chatting
    and emails.
    Originality/Value: Creating ontology of Information Science based on the
    knowledge transferring tacit knowledge between peer to peer. Furthermore , it will
    be machine readable by OWL language.
    Keywords: Communities of practice, knowledge mapping , ontology, knowledge
    management, virtual community of practice, knowledge representation,
    knowledge sharing
