Article Research focus
Speroni [15] Introduced the concept of ontology and propose seven ontologies for information intensive websites
Speroni et al. [14] Conducted an expert inspection based on Speroni’s [15] set of ontologies in order to evaluate the web interfaces
Bolchini et al. [10] Proposed a few heuristics to design and evaluate web interface signs grounded on Speroni’s [15] ontology
Islam et al. [12] Analysed the interface signs to explore users’ perceived difficulty in interpreting the meaning of interface signs that belong to different ontologies
Sharp [28] Described the importance of ontologies in information systems development based on Speroni’s [15] work
Islam [29] Analysed how re-design changes the ontology referred to by an interface sign; and users’ difficulty in interpreting the meaning of interface signs based on Speroni’s [15] work
