[bioontology-support] [BioPortal] Feedback from James Beekley

Hello James, Adrianne, Dazhi,

Thank you for your interest in using the ICD-O-3 ontology. This ontology was published by a user who has made the ontology private (hence not visible to anyone else).

On investigating the ontology to see if we could create a public copy, we are unable to find any indication that the license allows us to publish it in BioPortal ourselves. I found which suggests putting it into BioPortal doesn't fit within the legal scope.  And still is for an individual to use, not for republication as BioPortal is doing.

I would be happy to see a license that indicates otherwise, perhaps there is one for those particular resources? Or if you have a contact in WHO who would be able to help us with the licensing arrangements, that would be most helpful. I will pursue contacts on this end as well, in case the people we know are able to authorize this.

Hi BioPortal team,
My team currently uses the ICD10 ontology but we are interested in logging information using the ICD-O-3 ontology. Are there any plans to build out that extension as an ontology?

Thank you,

I use your ontologies through Redcap and now see that the option for ICD-O-3 is no longer there. I use this for cancer morphology and topography data. Is there another choice that has this information that I am not seeing?

Thank you for any help.

I accessed ICD-O (ICD Oncology) ontologies ICD-O-3-M and ICD-O-3-T a few weeks ago. However, I noticed that they don't exist on biopotal any more ( or returns a not found page.

Will bioportal continue to provide these two resources?

Thank you!
