I think that what you want to do is to have a reference to the underlying
concept in your RDF dataset and not to the BioPortal visualization of that
object. The objects themselves, concepts and properties, are best referenced
by their ids, in this case http://www.sematicweb.org/ontologies/..., as
defined by the authors of the ontology. The purls that we provide are for
the BioPortal visualization of these objects. It seems unlikely that this is
what you want.
If you do want the BioPortal visualization, then the form below is what you
need to use for classes. We do not currently support the visualization of
properties themselves, and thus there is not BioPortal Purl for them.

Subject: [bioontology-support] URIs of classes and properties
Dear BioPortal team,
I would like to ask how I can refer to unique classes and properties of
ontologies hosted at http://bioportal.bioontology.org/ in my RDF dataset.
I am interested in the Ontology of Physical Exercises (OPE) and if I
understand correctly, all classes begin with the URI
"http://purl.bioontology.org/ontology/OPE?conceptid=" plus the unique ID of
each term. For example, the URI of the class “Ailment” is
Is this there a more user friendly approach to refer to that class in an RDF
Furthermore, I would like to ask how could I find the URI of an rdf:Property
in the same ontology? I tried to use the same convention but it did not
work. For example, the property canMonitor is not accessible through the URI
Thank you in advance,
