The focus of our research is to investigate how ontology based search system can help a novice researcher in literature search in an online academic database. In this paper, we will describe ontology construction which is based on the existing relational database system. We will demonstrate three solutions using this ontology to resolve our problems in synonym relation, short-form-term and full-term search, and bilingual retrieval.
