Knowledge domains and their semantic representations via ontologies are typically subject to change in practical applications. Additionally, engineering of ontologies often takes place in distributed settings where multiple independent users interact. Therefore, change management for ontologies becomes a crucial aspect for any kind of ontology management environment. We introduce a new RDF-centric versioning approach and an implementation called SemVersion integrated as the Semantic Versioning Manager plug-in in Protégé. SemVersion provides structural and semantic versioning for RDF models and RDF-based ontology languages like RDFS.
