The Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable principles provide a set of guidelines and best practices for describing and accessing research data to be reused by others. We believe that ontologies, on their own, should also adapt these principles to be reused by others. With this validator we aim to provide the means for researchers to assess whether a vocabulary (OWL or SKOS) conforms or not to the best practices for publishing ontologies on the Web.

This work was led by several researchers of the Ontology Engineering Group at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid:
