metadata.dc.description.resumo: Ontologies are instruments of knowledge organization that have been developed by using several methodologies. These methodologies are well-known and established, but their steps often are not well explained. Thus, only knowledge engineers, in general with a major in computer science, are able to perform all steps required in ontologies development. In the present paper, we describe a methodology that details each step of the ontology development cycle. The goal of this methodology, which is called OntoForInfoScience, is to overcome issues that arise from the use of technical jargon and from the application of logical-philosophical principles in the ontology development. In order to identify the afore-mentioned issues, our methodology was produced by infor-mation scientists during the development of ontologies in the domain of human blood. Such domain ontology, called Hem-onto, is part of an on-going scientific biomedical project. In this paper, we present a brief description of OntoForInfoSci-ence, as well as some results of its application in the devel-opment of the blood ontology. Finally, we conclude that the new methodology is useful for information scientists creating formal ontological representations. In addition to the meth-odology per se, we also provide partial results of Hemonto development.
