Ontology-based information retrieval system for university: Methods and reasoning
Abstract The purpose of this paper is to search for a general framework for ontology development. This paper also implemented ontology on university domain, proposed a general framework for ontology searching and explained searching mechanism through university ontology. Also, it presents different ways of reasoning the ontol-ogy. In general, ontology classiﬁes the variables in need for some computations and creates interrelationships between them. It is also an essential part of the semantic
web. The introduction of semantic web poses the demands for creating ontology in
many domains. This paper emphasized mostly on conceptualizing the university as a
whole and was developed using standard tools protégé 4.3. This paper tries to ﬁll the
gap between existing works by including all the concepts and their related data and
object properties. The reasoning of our created ontology was done through Fact++
and Hermit 1.3.8 reasoner.
