Towards Stable Semantic Ontology Measurement

Stable semantic ontology measurement is crucial to obtain significant and comparable measurement results. In this paper, we present a summary of the definition of ontology measurement stability and the preprocessing for stable semantic ontology measurement from [5]. Meanwhile, we describe two existing ontology metrics. For each of them, we compare their stability from the perspectives of structural and semantic ontology measurements, respectively. The experiments show that some structural ontology measurements may be unusable in cases when we want to compare the measurements of different models, unless the pre-processing of the models is performed.
