Reputation has been studies in many fields but few formal models have been defined up to now. In this paper we propose a new model for reputation that takes into account the social dimension of agents and a hierarchical ontology structure. This model is a natural extension of other models currently being used in the area of electronic commerce. We show how the model relates to these other systems and provide initial experimental results about the benefits of using a social view on the modeling of reputation.
