Metadata challenges in the materials science community have surfaced due to national and international data sharing policies and the Material Genome Initiative. Among the more pressing challenges is the need to develop semantic ontologies, given their capacity to support information retrieval and discovery, interoperability, and linking of related resources. Researchers engaged in the Materials Science Metadata Infrastructure Initiative are addressing this need by working with Helping Interdisciplinary Vocabulary Engineering (HIVE) technology in the area of metals. This poster reports the process and the initial results of an ontology focused on the topic of metal developed in Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS), a World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), and integrated into the HIVE technology.
