Abstract

Ontologies are increasingly used in various applications, e.g., semantic interoperability, view alignment. One of the reasons is that ontologies are seen as a means to improve qualitative characteristics of Information Management. In particular, there is an intensive on-going research on ontology-based information retrieval. Since, there are different ontology usage ways in information retrieval applications. We take a look at ontology-based information retrieval scenarios and define ontology quality facets essential for improvement of information retrieval. Finally, we relate ontology elements and OWL constructs to information retrieval task performance.
