Family Thesaurus

"Family Thesaurus is arranged in an alphabetical sequence showing the hierarchical relationship of each main term to other terms. Non-used terms or cross-references are listed to guide users to the preferred terms. Main terms are shown in bold and non-used terms in a lighter typeface. The Thesaurus facilitates post-coordinated indexing, whereby complex subjects are represented by several different headings, rather than one single heading. Post-coordinated systems rely on the use of boolean operators - such as and, or, not - to combine the separate headings for searching.

Adverse Event Reporting Ontology

"The Adverse Event Reporting Ontology (AERO) is an ontology aimed at supporting clinicians at the time of data entry, increasing quality and accuracy of reported adverse events. AERO focuses on signs reported by clinicians as part of adverse event reporting forms, whether causality to the medical intervention as been established or not. Official releases will be marked as such, and will comply with ID and deprecation policies."

Newborn Screening Coding and Terminology Guide

"The goal of the Newborn Screening Coding and Terminology Guide is to promote and facilitate the use of electronic health data standards in recording and transmitting newborn screening test results. The Web site includes standard codes and terminology for newborn tests and the conditions for which they screen, and links to other related sites. The codes and vocabulary standards are provided in a series of tables that you can view on the Web and/or download for your own use.

African Traditional Medicine Ontology

"The ontology consists of concepts or terms (nodes) that are linked by three types of relationships (edges). That means the ontology appears as a direct acyclic graph. The parent and child terms are connected to each other by is_a and part_of relationships. The former is a relation in which the child term is a more restrictive concept than its parent (thus divination is_a traditional_practice). The latter is used to show the inclusion relationships between concepts, for example that a potion_type is part_of a potion."

Datenbank für wissenschaftliche Schriften in der Pflege Thesaurus

"Für den Bereich der Pflegewissenschaft liegt noch kein umfassender deutschsprachiger Thesaurus vor. Im englischsprachigen Bereich ist der für die Datenbank CINAHL genutzte Thesaurus der wohl am weitesten entwickelte. Eine Übertragung in die deutsche Sprache ist jedoch aufwändig aufgrund zu berücksichtigender kultureller und berufsbezogener Spezifika. In Deutschland nutzt die Datenbank CareLit einen speziellen Schlagwortkatalog, der allerdings eine geringe Systematik aufweist und wissenschaftliche Aspekte nur in geringem Maße berücksichtigt.

"The thesaurus used for the database CINAHL is probably the most advanced in the field of nursing sciences, but it is not a comprehensive thesaurus in English. The Thesaurus developed for the database WISE is based on a keyword collection, which was built between 2001 and 2009. The terms in this collection were not systematized, and as part of the development of the database, the intention was to begin with a systematization of these terms, which is divided into two levels. On the lower level, subjects differentiate these topics. Keywords can be assigned to several categories.
