[bioontology-support] [BioPortal] Feedback from zxs

"Carelex" is still listed as the acronym and any search in the ui starting
with "car" brings up this ontology (since we automatically search on
acronyms as well as names. Under what circumstances were people unable to
find your ontology?

We had a number of people complain that the names of ontologies in
BioPortal were meaningless acronyms that were very difficult to
understand. Thus we went through and replaced them with the real names but
left the acronyms in place.

First thanks on behalf of many in the BioPharma industry who appreciate
the efforts your team has made to create the BioPortal resource.

Question:  Our ontology 'CareLex' was recently renamed to 'Content Archive
Resource Exchange Lexicon' by BioPortal staff.

As a result we have heard that its now hard for people to find the CareLex

--> Could you please add the search terms 'CareLex' and 'eTMF' to your
search engine and link them to our ontology?    

Our ontology is located at:

Thanks very much,
