Reference Ontology

1. A detailed, fine-grained ontology that specifies the intended meaning of a vocabulary and is accessed from time to time for reference purposes. It may be hard to develop and to reason on, both because the number of axioms and the expressiveness of the language adopted. ([ Guarino, 1998 ])
2. An ontology that is meant to be a canonical, comprehensive representation of the entities in a given domain that is developed to encapsulate established knowledge of the sort that one would find in a scientific textbook. ([ Arp et al., 2015 ])
