  • dcterms:creator "ELI task force" @en

  • rdfs:comment "Transposition of the ELI metadata fieldsds into an OWL ontology.
    See the classes "LegalResource", "LegalExpression" and "Format" as entry points.

    ***** Notes *****

    - The ELI ontology reuses the property names from the Metalex ontology (http://www.metalex.eu/) to express the FRBR skeleton hierarchy : is_realized_by/realizes, is_embodied_by/embodies, is_exemplified_by. This wording is also the one used in the original FRBR specifications. However, the decision has been made _not_ to align to the Metalex class names (BibliographicWork, BibliographicExpression, BibliographicManifestation), because ELI is specifically about publishing legal metadata on the web, and not structuring legal content in any document.
    - Since published_in property has been made into a Literal, it is not possible to declare explicitely "publishes" as an inverse property.
    - first_date_entry_in_force and date_no_longer_in_force could be subproperties of dcterms:date
    - a class could be introduced for URI schemas to implement the URI schema registry
