The BioPortal Reference Plugin allows a user *to insert references to 
terms, classes, etc. from external ontologies and terminologies* stored 
in BioPortal <> into his or her own 
ontology without the need to import the external ontology. The plugin 
allows the *easy navigation* from the domain ontology in Protege to the 
external ontology by simply clicking on the generated *hyperlink of a 
reference*. The hyperlink will take the user directly into BioPortal to 
the referenced term. The user may also search BioPortal for alternative 

The plugin is configurable and works with Protege 3.4.1 OWL, RDF, 
Frames, client-server and all backends of Protege.

The plugin is a slot widget that can be attached to any object or 
annotation property in OWL, or any slot with value type instance, class 
or any in Frames.

The user guide and download link are available on the Protege wiki:
