Formal Ontologies: A Complete Novices Guide

PARTHENOS

Archived snapshot of the ‘Formal Ontologies A Complete Novices Guide’ module, which is part of the PARTHENOS Training suite [1], which was developed as part of Work Package 7 in the PARTHENOS project [2].

About the module:

“If you have worked with or managed data, the chances are you have probably at least heard of ‘ontologies‘ or some other methods of formal knowledge representation.  The concept of ontologies in a philosophical sense could be something that you are more or less comfortable with but they could be something that you find a bit daunting, especially if you don’t know where to begin.

This module is specifically aimed at those who are not yet familiar with ontologies as a means of research data management, and will take you through some of the main features of ontologies, and the reasons for using them.

By the end of this module, participants should be able to….

  • Understand what we mean by ‘Data Hetereogeneity’, and how it affects knowledge representation
  • Understand and explain the basic concept of an ontology
  • Understand and explain how ontologies are used to curate and share research data”

Background:

The PARTHENOS project [3] recognised that over the past ten years, researchers, institutional leaders and policymakers have begun to speak more and more about infrastructure.  As more voices join the conversation, however, it can sometimes become more difficult, rather than less, to understand what exactly research infrastructure is and does.  In particular in the humanities, and the digital humanities, the term is used to cover a lot of different projects, resources and approaches.

To address this gap, the PARTHENOS cluster of humanities research infrastructure projects devised a series of training modules and resources for researchers, educators, managers, and policy makers who want to learn more about research infrastructures and the issues and methods around them.

The modules, which have been released on a rolling basis from late 2016, cover a wide range of awareness levels, requirements and topic areas within the landscape of research infrastructure.
