The OntoCheck P4 plugin allows to define clean-up checks on a generated owl ontology - e.g. to be stored and carried out before each ontology release. Found test violations can be corrected to foster consistency in entity naming and meta-annotation. Once specified, check-constraints like name patterns can be stored and exchanged for later re-use. The plugin allows the user to specify checks on certain properties of an active ontology (OntoCheck) and allows for improvements (OntoCure) in the areas of

a) Metadata completeness, e.g. via cardinality checks on mandatory and optional annotation properties

b) Naming Conventions, e.g. via lexical analysis and labeling enforcement for representational units (RU) names and IDs.

Thereby this plugin fosters lexical harmonization as e.g. demanded by the OBO Foundry Naming Conventions at http://www.obofoundry.org/wiki/index.php/Naming
