Adding Organisation nodes #10
The requirement is enabling Research Graph partners to capture and present Organisations such as universities, funders, and research groups as part of their graph. The followings are candidate properties of the new type:
In apo.org.au we define an "owning institution" - so a parent-child relationship between organisations. Our implementation of this is sporadic. I note also that this approach is taken in GRID (grid:hasParent).
FOAF has class foaf:organization. Note also another w3c standard "The Organization Ontology", where org:organization is defined as an equivalent class to foaf:organization. Within this ontology, org:subOrganisationOf / org:hasSubOrganisation are used.
We also assign a high-level organisation type to our organisation records. Our org types is a short list and a bit overlapping with the GRID approach. Within The Organization Ontology, this is probably encoded as org:purpose.
