I like the idea of  foaf:primaryTopic, plus some sort of class and some label.
In an ontology, for example,

<docs/tutorial1>  a  bibo:Tutorial;
	dc:title   "A beginner' guide to the breakfast ontology";
	foaf:primaryTopic <>.  				# it is about this ontology.

Or the equivalent in RDF/XML of course.

I am on a plane so I can't check whether bibo does define a class of tutorial.
Good to put class and title so that one can decide whether to look it up
without doing so first.
