ABSTRACT
This paper presents a cross-ontology approach, as an extension of
the Cluster-Based approach, to measure semantic distance
between concepts within single ontology or between concepts
dispersed in multiple ontologies in a unified framework in the
biomedical domain. The approach was evaluated in the
biomedical domain within the UMLS framework with two
biomedical ontologies (MeSH and SNOMED-CT). We used two
datasets of biomedical terms scored for similarity by human
experts. The experimental results (with ~0.81 correlation with
