Reading Material

- Semantic Web for the Working Ontologist. Second Edition. Morgan Kaufmann, 2011 by Dean Allemang and Jim Hendler
This is an excellent book, well-written, specifically on the modeling aspects of RDF, RDFS, OWL, and SKOS. If you are going to read one book on the subject, this is the one.

- Agency and the Semantic Web. Oxford University Press, 2007. by Christopher Walton
This book gives a broad outlook on knowledge systems and the semantic web, including more academic background on the computational aspects of the subject.

- Model Driven Engineering and Ontology Management. Second Edition. Springer, 2009. by Dragan Gasevic, Dragan Djuric, and Vladan Devedzic.
This book provides valuable insight on knowledge engineering in general and the relationship between the different modeling spaces.

Websites

The NCBO is an excellent resource for biomedical ontologies and related technologies. It provides a repository and federated search across a large number of biomedical ontologies.
Excellent resource for people just starting out.
A good example of why and how you should develop an ontology for a domain. Includes a case study and example development files for Protege
  • The Ontology for Clinical Research (OCRe)
The Ontology of Clinical Research (OCRe) is a formal ontology for describing human studies that provides methods for binding to external information standards (e.g. BRIDG) and clinical terminologies (e.g. SNOMED CT). Has links with the Human Studies Database. Is in active development
