Hi, CA,

I published a study similar in goals to this, regarding the usage of
biomedical text corpora.  You can see how I built my sample and
assessed usage in this paper:

I was looking at the # of projects that use each ontology to figure out how useful & used the ontology is, but I'm not sure if this number reflects how often the ontologies are actually used. Is it possible that people use the NCBO ontologies without registering the project under that ontology? Is there a better indicator for a particular ontology's usage?
