Abstract: 
This paper describes Onto4AIR2, a simple ontology to represent theses from open repositories as products of collaboration. The goal is the construction of machine-readable datasets that are semantically labeled for the further deployment of web services of shared interest to managers, developers, and users within educational organizations. The ontology is populated with sample data of theses from the National Repository of Mexico, an initiative promoted by the National Council of Science, and Technology. The paper suggests practical applications derived from the formalisms of the ontology, and describes an assessment technique where participants were managers, developers, and potential users of the ontology. Developers followed a competency questions-based approach and determined that the ontology represents questions and answers using its terminology; whereas potential users participated in a satisfaction survey; the results showed a positive perception about the ontology. Onto4AIR2 is in English and Spanish languages, this fosters unique and formal definitions of concepts from the Mexican repositories domain.
