Abstract: This research focuses on developing a quality model for semantic information system (IS) standards. A lot of semantic IS standards are available in different industries. Often these standards are developed by a dedicated organisation. While these organisations have the goal of increasing interoperability, there is no way to determine the quality of such a standard. This research will provide quality attributes relevant to semantic IS standards. A theoretical grounded model is created and validated by 19 experts through a survey. Based on these findings, a quality model to assess the quality of semantic IS standards has been constructed.

Keywords: quality models; semantic information systems; information system standards; interoperability; information quality; modelling; semantics.
