Biomedical ontology development is often a time and resource consuming endeavor. To maximize efficiency of the process, we present a set of 10 simple rules covering basic technical requirements such as scoping and versioning, while considering additional elements such as licensing and community engagement. When applied, the rules will help avoid common pitfalls and jump-start ontology building.
