Formal Ontologies: A Complete Novice's Guide

Key Info
Description - a brief synopsis, abstract or summary of what the learning resource is about: 

This module is specifically aimed at those who are not yet familiar with ontologies as a means of research data management, and will take you through some of the main features of ontologies, and the reasons for using them.  If you’d like to take a step back to a very basic introduction to knowledge representation systems, you could have a look at the brief summary we have given in the ‘Introduction to Research Infrastructures Module’ before starting.
By the end of this module, participants should be able to:
-Understand what we mean by ‘Data Hetereogeneity’, and how it affects knowledge representation
-Understand and explain the basic concept of an ontology
-Understand and explain how ontologies are used to curate and share research data

PARTHENOS training provides modules and resources in digital humanities and research infrastructures with the goal of strengthening the cohesion of research in the broad sector of Linguistic Studies, Humanities, Cultural Heritage, History, Archaeology and related fields.  Activities designed to meet this goal will address and provide common solutions to the definition and implementation of joint policies and solutions for the humanities and linguistic data lifecycle, considering the specific needs of the sector including the provision of joint training activities and modules on topics related to understanding research infrastructures and managing, improving and opening up research and data for both learners and trainers.
