Most of the universities in Turkey use Academic Data Management System (AVESIS) in order to publish academician information. However, this system is university-based so that it provides only limited information to users. For instance, it is necessary to look at personal pages of all academicians in the case of researching ones who have a specific interest. In this study, an academic ontology for AVESİS is presented in order to handle this situation. SPARQL language was used to query and retrieve the generated ontology, and the queries were made through Virtuoso server due to the speed it provides. The information and statistics obtained from the queries are displayed to the end user through the designed web interface. The presented system was tested for AVESİS pages of Computer Engineering departments at three of the biggest universities in Turkey which are Yildiz Technical University, Istanbul Technical University and Istanbul University, and gave successful results.
