This deliverable presents the results of validating the Linked Open Terms (LOT) methodology for ontology development within the OntoCommons project. LOT is a flexible framework with four main phases: Ontology Requirements Specification, Implementation, Publication, and Maintenance. The validation involved surveying users to assess LOT's real-world utility and identify areas for improvement. The survey included five sections covering participants' backgrounds, motivation, and experiences, as well as LOT's core activities. The responses provide valuable feedback. The report highlights key findings and common themes from the analysis of these feedback responses. The report also covers LOT's evolution to align with OntoCommons' ontology stack, leading to the development of Linked Open Terms Methodology for the OntoCommons Ecosystem (LOT4OCES). This specialised version offers a standardised ontology development path. The report briefly describes the specialisations and customisations introduced in LOT4OCES, as well as key discussions and recommendations.
