Thanks, I was able to find it! I am adding the links:

    Homepage: <http://bibliontology.com/>
    Ontology:
<http://bibotools.googlecode.com/svn/bibo-ontology/tags/1.3/bibo.xml.owl>

Btw, I can see that it is not only lists: 

    <owl:ObjectProperty rdf:about="authorList">
        <!-- some stuff removed -->
        <rdfs:range>
            <owl:Class>
                <owl:unionOf rdf:parseType="Collection">
                    <rdf:Description rdf:about="&rdf;List"/>
                    <rdf:Description rdf:about="&rdf;Seq"/>
                </owl:unionOf>
            </owl:Class>
        </rdfs:range>
    </owl:ObjectProperty>

Which brings us to the next question: What is it that's wrong with RDF
containers (rdf:Seq and friends)? :-)
