Musen MODULARITY, as studied for many years in software engineering, allows mechanisms for easy and flexible reuse, generalisation, structuring, maintenance, design patterns, and comprehension. Applied to ontology engineering, modularity is central not only to reduce the complexity of understanding ontologies, but also to facilitate ontology maintenance and ontology reasoning. Recent research on ontology modularity shows substantial progress in foundations of modularity, techniques of modularisation and modular development, distributed reasoning and empirical evaluation. These results provide a solid foundation and exciting prospects for further research and development. This special issue invites submission of high quality original work that has neither appeared in, nor is under consideration by, other journals. Submissions must be formatted according to IOS Press style ( www.iospress.nl/authco/instruction_crc.html ) and should be prepared in PDF format.
