Adapting the European Legislation Identifier (ELI) Ontology in the Albanian Legal Publishing System : A Possible Solution Model

Authors(2) :-Ardiana Topi, Aleksander Xhuvani

Access to legal documents play a key role in the functionality of governmental and non-governmental bodies in national level as well as to international level. The Albanian Official Publishing Centre is responsible for publishing the Official Journal of the Republic of Albania, the Bulletin of Official Notifications and the updated Legal Acts, both hardcopy and electronic-copy. Actually, the e-publishing process offers only pdf versions of the Official Journal, accessible via web without any extra searching engine integrated on it. The European Legislation Identifier (ELI) is established in the context of the European Forum of Official Gazettes. This paper aims to present the results of our study on attempts for giving a solution to the implementation of the ELI ontology in the context of Albanian Official Journal and other types of publishing Legal Acts, by contributing as an initial study that can be used as model to join EU legal system.
