The ontology has its origin in philosophy, and then is introduced in a particular domain of discourse. An ontology is a formal naming and definition of the types and interrelationships of the terms, and forms a complex knowledge network system that can be understood by the human and the computer. The different data and metadata could be unified through standardized terms of ontology, in order to eliminate the cognitive differences and realize the integration of data and automatic computer analysis.
Data sharing is a global trend in the era of big data, especially, after precision medicine proposed and implemented in recent years. As an important means of biomedical data standardization, ontology has been widely used in biomedical data analysis, sharing, retrieval, integration and reuse, and has been one of the tools of data sharing and journal standardization as well.
The system refers to an important content of medical ethics, that is, Informed Consent Ontology(ICO). ICO is about obtaining informed consent procedure and related information in the process of performing medical research. ICO includes 450 entries related to the informed consent procedure and content.
National Scientific Data Sharing Platform for Population and Health(http://www.ncmi.cn/1) , Special Service Platform of Translational Medicine (also known as Special Service of Translational Oncology, http://www.transmed-oncology.cn/) and Journal of Chinese Medical Ethics organized this project together. The project was led by Professor Guan Jian and Professor Wang Mingxu. The domestic famous experts and teachers in Ethics were involved in this project and teamed up to experts group and working group. On the basis of the English ontology library, the team strived to complete the translation of the English ontology into Chinese ontology with standardization, and established this system which is easy to query and use. This is the first Informed Consent Ontology Library for Medical ethics in China, and is also the only bilingual Informed Consent Ontology system worldwide. Up to now, we have applied to cooperate with international ontology platform to share this ontology. This ontology has already been used in National Scientific Data Sharing Platform for Population and Health and Special Service of Translational Oncology, and also will be promoted in Journal of Chinese Medical Ethics.
