Sawsaa, Ahlam and Lu, Joan (2012) Developing a Domain ontology of Information Science (OIS). International Conference on Information Society (i-Society),25th-28th June 2012 London. pp. 462-467.

Ontology is the backbone of the semantic web and
can overcome semantic barriers. A domain ontology provides a
common understanding of the knowledge of a particular
domain. Information Science, meanwhile, is an
interdisciplinary science that is yet to be defined. It is
necessary to develop an Ontology of Information Science (OIS)
to represent the knowledge in the field.
This paper presents a representation of specific domain
knowledge by providing a definition, scope, and boundaries of
Information Science (IS). The OIS has fourteen facets: actors,
method, practice, studies, mediate, kinds, domains, resources,
legislation, philosophy and theories, societal, tools, time and
space. The methodology followed is Methontology, which is
based on the IEEE standard for the development of a software
life-cycle process. The paper then discusses the OIS ontology,
particu larly its structure.
