Dear All,

We are happy to announce the new release of the Modern Science Ontology
(ModSci), an ontology for modeling relationships between modern science
branches and related entities, such as scientific discoveries, phenomena,
renowned scientists, instruments, etc. ModSci is a poly-hierarchical
ontology that can be utilized in Semantic Web applications. It is an upper
ontology that provides a unifying framework for the various domain
ontologies that make up the Science Knowledge Graph Ontology (SKGO)
<https://github.com/saidfathalla/Science-knowledge-graph-ontologies> Suite

ModSci can be browsed online, through web-based repository front-end for
browsing and visualizing published ontologies, at BioPortal
<http://bioportal.bioontology.org/ontologies/MODSCI>, Linked Open
Vocabularies <https://lov.linkeddata.es/dataset/lov/vocabs/modsci>, and
AberOWL <http://aber-owl.net/ontology/ModSci/%7d%7d,>, thus increasing the
findability and reusability of the ontology.

Indeed, the classification of research topics through ontological
taxonomies supports a diversity of research areas, such as information
exploration (e.g., in digital libraries), scholarly data analytics and
integration, and modeling research dynamics.

The ModSci classification tree of modern sciences branches is freely
available for research purposes in HTML format (viewable as an interactive

ModSci powers two projects for semantically representing scholarly
information: Open Research Knowledge Graph <https://projects.tib.eu/orkg/>
and OpenResearch.org <https://www.openresearch.org/wiki/Main_Page>.
