Abstract. We address the problem of the access to the results of scientific publications in the agri-food domain. We focus on the description of main contributions of the papers treating them as accepted or rejected beliefs of their authors expressed in the form of scientific laws. We define the structure of different kinds of scientific laws present in the domain in the form of an ontology. The main concern of the paper is a process in which we proceed from the abstracts of papers to the ontological representation of laws. Moreover, we present examples of SPARQL queries which show how the resulting knowledge base can be used. Among the uses we point out discovering new scientific hypotheses and incoherencies among scientific laws.
