OLS2OWL, an ontology repository manager plug-in developed for Protégé 4.0. The tool (1) facilitates search and retrieval over collections of ontologies, (2) supports comparison across terms from different ontologies by providing integrative views; the latter supports weaving and maintaining a dense network of semantic relationships between multiple ontologies, and (3) facilitates reusing entire ontologies as well as portions of them—i.e., slices of ontologies. We argue that these three functionalities are essential for building good ontologies without redefining conceptual elements that already exist. This is particularly relevant to broad collaborative settings in which redundant and partly overlapping definitions are hard to control with current tooling.
