Ontologies form the cornerstone of the Semantic Web and are intended to help researchers to analyze and share knowledge, and as more ontologies are being introduced, it is difficult for users to find good ontologies related to their work. Therefore, tools for evaluating and ranking the ontologies are needed. In this paper, we present OntoQA, a tool that evaluates ontologies related to a certain set of terms and then ranks them according a set of metrics that captures different aspects of ontologies. Since there are no global criteria defining how a good ontology should be, OntoQA allows users to tune the ranking towards certain features of ontologies to suit the need of their applications. We also show the effectiveness of OntoQA in ranking ontologies by comparing its results to the ranking of other comparable approaches as well as expert users.
