In this paper we present a new method for ontology selection in a reuse context. The novel feature of this method is the iterative selection of the reused ontologies. Ontology selection is guided by the user according to his requirements and his perception to the target domain. Starting from a first selected ontology, the concepts with the weakest density are identified then the ontology developer is enabled to choose among them the ones to be refined in order to cover a specific scope of the domain.
