“O’FAIRe: Ontology FAIRness Evaluator in the AgroPortal semantic resource repository”

Abstract: O’FAIRe, the Ontology FAIRness Evaluator, is a methodology to automatically assess to which level a semantic resource or ontology respects the FAIR Principles. This talk will present the online tool implementing O’FAIRe within the AgroPortal ontology repository, through 61 questions/tests, among 80% are based on the ontology metadata description. For a specific ontology or a group of semantic resources, O’FAIRe web service outputs both global and detailed scores (normalized) against the 15 FAIR Principles. O’FAIRe results are visualized and explained with new specific user-friendly interfaces (such as the FAIRness wheel) in order to help AgroPortal users improve the FAIRness of their resources. O’FAIRe is currently implemented in three different public ontology repositories as they offer the required metadata descriptions. In the future, we will deploy the service in other OntoPortal repositories.

Series Description

The IAOA [2] has created ESAO [1], a new educational effort directed towards topics of Applied Ontology, primarily established basics and foundations.

The series is inspired by the Interdisciplinary Schools on Applied Ontology (ISAO) [3] (whose next edition will be held in 2023). ESAO is complementary in format and its overall approach. The goal is to provide a combination of an archive of educational material (e.g., short video lectures) and a series of webinars for presenting and discussing that material.
