Although it is widely recognized that ontology is the main approach towards semantic interoperability among information systems and services, the understanding of ontology aspects among researchers is limited. To provide a clear insight to this problem and support researchers, we need a background understanding of various aspects related to ontology. Consequently, in this paper, a comprehensive review is conducted to map the literature studies to a coherent taxonomy. These include the benefits of ontology, types of ontology, application domains, development platforms, languages, tools, and methodologies. The paper also discusses the concept of ontology, semantic Web, and its contribution to several research fields such as Artificial Intelligence, Library Science and shared knowledge. The fundamentals of ontology presented in this paper can benefit readers who wish to embark in ontology-based research and applications development.
