The present research aims to design an Ontology of Family Consolidation domain based on Women's Studies resources in Iran (books and articles) which were published during the years 1995-2018.
It was done by extracting the concepts and their relationships and properties from knowledge resources. This applied research was done by mixed methods (qualitative and quantitative combination), with Delphi and Domain analysis approaches by reviewing the subjects of 792 books and 1142 articles. Concepts were evaluated by Delphi method through interviews and questionnaires with 11 ex-perts. Finally, 1 conceptual core, 3 conce-pts, 9 categories, 24 subcategories and 66 sub-concepts were extracted. The made-artifact of this research has 1 conceptual core (super class) called "Family Conso-lidation", two main classes called "Family Consolidation Factors" and "Family Consolidation Results". It contains also 110 classes, 199 subclasses, along with 54 hierarchical relationships. In total 212 semantic properties were identified among the concepts. The present research has been done through protégé ontology management software (Beta 5. 5 edition) and because of software capability it can edit, upgrade and expand. This ontology has been created with the aim to support researchers in exploring knowledge and to retrieve more information from the domain of Women's Studies in Iran.
