Hi All,

I have started a new thread so that we can have a clear starting point for the state of the current discussion. We are now at a stage where we need to make a decision, and I propose that we try to have consensus by midnight Hawaii time on Thursday 23 November*.

  1.  We have agreed that where a suitable schema.org<http://schema.org> term does not exist we will use an suitable existing ontology term directly rather than through the additionalProperty mechanism.
  2.  The consensus is now for a profile to state a suitable ontology term.
     *   A future revision of the profile will be free to replace that ontology term with another term if there is community consensus for such a change.
     *   Data providers will also be free to provide additional terms with the same meaning.
  3.  To support the development of common markup, a json-ld context will be provided on the bioschemas site.
     *   We will look into the feasibility of versioning this so that when a specification is updated the context will reflect those changes.

If you agree with the above, simply reply with a +1. Otherwise please provide a counter proposal or amendment.

Best regards
