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.

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Thesaurus

"The IEEE Thesaurus is a controlled vocabulary of over 9,000 descriptive engineering, technical, and scientific terms as well as IEEE-specific society terms. The thesaurus represents terminology and vocabulary usage drawn from IEEE transactions and journal articles, conference papers, and standards.

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Taxonomy

"The IEEE Taxonomy comprises the first three hierarchical 'levels' under each term-family (or branch) that is formed from the top-most terms of the IEEE Thesaurus. In this document these term-families are arranged alphabetically and denoted by boldface type. Each term family's hierarchy goes to no more than three sublevels, denoted by indents (grouping of four dots) preceding the next level terms. A term can appear in more than one hierarchical branch and can appear more than once in any particular hierarchy.

Canadian Thesaurus of Construction Science and Technology

"There are 15,331 files in the TC/CS. Most of the descriptor terms in the TC/CS are in plural form (i.e. cars). The thesaurus uses the convention: if you can answer the question 'how much ____?' (how much rain), then the term will be listed in the singular form. If you can answer the question 'how many ____?' (i.e. how many cars), then it will be listed in the plural form. If you are unsure, then append a '*' wildcard to the desired words in your search strategy; for example 'survey*'. There are 15,331 files in the TC/CS.

FISH Building Materials Thesaurus

"Construction materials for monuments relating to the built and buried heritage. English Heritage takes a leading role in setting standards for recording the built and buried heritage. By setting standards that can be adopted by everyone, we can make sure that all records are consistent. In other words, if everyone uses the same words to describe the same monument, archaeological object, building material, etc, then anyone using this common language can easily index, retrieve and understand these records.
