The evolution of Web and cloud services technology has facilitated collaboration on the Web, providing the means for concurrent editing, change tracking and storing files in the cloud (e.g. Google Docs, Office 365). Ontology development teams could greatly benefit from this technology, that until now have been applied mainly to document processing. We introduce CLONE, a Web-based ontology editor that runs in the cloud and provides a real-time collaborative environment for creating and editing ontologies. CLONE is designed as a service-oriented architecture taking advantages of the easy extensibility and scalability features of this approach. CLONE provides all the essential features of stand-alone ontology editors, as well as significant collaboration features, including concurrent editing, editing history, team conversations and role-based access-authorization mechanisms.
