abstract A significant amount of results have been produced recently in the area of ontology research.Increasingly semantic concepts are applied not only to enable system to system interaction and dataexchange through unambiguous modelling of a certain domain, but also to enable univocalcommunication between human beings working on a certain domain. Reuse of ontology researchresults is however hindered by different underlying meta-models, incompatible formalization and thelimited availability of content. In this paper we therefore analyse issues of reusing ontologies in thecontext of an ongoing research project that aims to develop a methodology for modelling the processlandscape of public administrations in order to measure qualitative and quantitative impacts ofInformation and Communication Technology using semantic models and reasoning functionality.Seven ontology research projects are identified to be relevant candidates for reuse in this project andare categorised by relevant characteristics of reuse. Based on this analysis, a framework that definesrequired information to enable accurate characterisations of ontology research results in an ontologylibrary system is presented. Thereby existing approaches are extended in order to enable discoveryand facilitate reuse of ontology results from European research projects based on structural andcontent-related information.
