SCoRO, the Scholarly Contributions and Roles Ontology, is a CERIF-compliant ontology (summarised in the following picture) for use by authors, publishers and research administrators, for describe the contributions and roles of scholars, and the organizations of which they are members, with respect to projects, research investigations and other academic activities, and to the scholarly journal articles and other outputs that result from them.
PSO, the Publishing Status Ontology, is an ontology written in OWL 2 DL for characterizing the publication status of a document or other publication entity at each of the various stages in the publishing process (e.g. draft, submitted, under review, rejected, accepted for publication, proof, published, Version of Record, catalogued, archived).
The Publishing Roles Ontology (PRO) is an ontology for the characterisation of the roles of agents – people, corporate bodies and computational agents in the publication process. These agents can be, e.g. authors, editors, reviewers, publishers or librarians.
The Five Stars of Online Research Articles Ontology (FiveStars) is an ontology written in OWL 2 DL to enable characterization of the five attributes of an online journal article - peer review, open access, enriched content, available datasets and machine-readable metadata.
The Document Components Ontology (DoCO) in an ontology that provides a structured vocabulary written of document components, both structural (e.g., block, inline, paragraph, section, chapter) and rhetorical (e.g., introduction, discussion, acknowledgements, reference list, figure, appendix).
DEO, The Discourse Elements Ontology, is an ontology written in OWL 2 DL that provides a structured vocabulary for rhetorical elements within documents (e.g. Introduction, Discussion, Acknowledgements, Reference List, Figures, Appendix), enabling these to be described in RDF. It uses some of the rhetorical block elements from the SALT Rhetorical Ontology and the Ontology of Rhetorical Blocks.
The Citation Counting and Context Characterisation Ontology (C4O) is an ontology that permits the number of in-text citations of a cited source to be recorded, together with their textual citation contexts, along with the number of citations a cited entity has received globally on a particular date.
The Bibliographic Reference Ontology (BiRO) allows the description of reference lists and bibliographic references themselves. In particular, BiRO uses an OWL-based definition of the FRBR model to define bibliographic references and their compilation into ordered bibliographic lists, by means of the Collections Ontology, as shown in the following figure.
