§ Paragraph IE
IE's object of study is SEM.
The accounting of social, environmental and economic flows in time and space.
Many fields of sustainability and decision-making towards sustainability rely on such accounting.
Several approaches can exist: MFA / LCA / IOA; but all share the same structure; despite different vocabularies/inconsistencies (ref).
Call to lift up IE methods: Reference to Pauliuk
Call to generalise: Bo, 2018
§ Paragraph CS
§ IE and CS
Acknowledge previous efforts: LCA ontologies existing, IE GitHub repo open source,…
Still, as of today:
§ Bonsai organisation, strech goals, hackhathon
§ Paper's aim
§ Outline plan of article
[not sure an IMRaD structure is best suited, maybe better to have numbered section]
Section 2 = BEP process, rules, principles
Section 3 = Ontology description (link to online documentation)
Section 4 = Examples (unlinked, linked)
Section 5 = Advanced example, ideally with actual URIs, online;
Section 6 = Discussion of key choices, extensions per field, future enhancements, validation of rdfs
Section 7 = Conclusions, link to other working groups (e.g. correspondance tables, rdf triplestore)
SECTION 2 BEP process, rules, principles
Rules for agreeing; definition; BEPs
SECTION 3 Ontology description
Table: 3 columns: Key vocabulary in the ontology; labels as in ontology; other usual names given in different fields (LCA, MFA, IOA, LCC, etc)
Figure: online viz of rdfs
§ Text description of:
§ External ontologies
§ To add:
EXAMPLE / APPLICATION [Section 4 , 5]
§ Current hosting of the ontology; examples are available at the URIs mentioned and on GitHubRepo
§ Several examples with figures, from simple to complex
Example Raw data; System model
Example with transport, market, impact assessment
DISCUSSION [based on BEPs, Section 6]
CONCLUSIONS / VISION /EXTENSIONS [Section 7]
