DrugBank

"The DrugBank database is a unique bioinformatics and cheminformatics resource that combines detailed drug (i.e. chemical, pharmacological and pharmaceutical) data with comprehensive drug target (i.e. sequence, structure, and pathway) information. The database contains 8246 drug entries including 2012 FDA-approved small molecule drugs, 229 FDA-approved biotech (protein/peptide) drugs, 94 nutraceuticals and over 6000 experimental drugs. Additionally, 4344 non-redundant protein (i.e. drug target/enzyme/transporter/carrier) sequences are linked to these drug entries.

Contributor Roles Taxonomy

"A high-level classification of the diverse roles performed in the work leading to a published research output in the sciences. Its purpose to provide transparency in contributions to scholarly published work, to enable improved systems of attribution, credit, and accountability. (...) The classification includes, but is not limited to, traditional authorship roles. That is, these roles are not intended to define what constitutes authorship.

CASRAI Dictionary

"The dictionary is shared infrastructure meant to serve as a key component of the national and international interoperability strategies of research organizations. It represents the integrated outputs (and ongoing maintenance) of an international network of subject matter experts from stakeholder organizations. The dictionary is intended as a canonical collection of common terms and their descriptors as well as basic structural groupings to facilitate controlled information exchanges between stakeholders.

Glossary of Housing Terms

"Formerly titled A Glossary of House-Building and Site-Development Terms, this invaluable reference text has been used for three decades by people in the housing industry and by university and college students enrolled in construction-related education programs. Completely revised, this comprehensive, up-to-date glossary incorporates more than 300 new definitions to reflect current construction terminology."

WAVES Thesaurus

"If you wish to be positive that you find everything there is in WAVES about a particular species, or that is in a certain series, or that is by a particular corporate body, you may use the Thesaurus Search option on the left menu. These three fields use what is known as a controlled vocabulary. For example, some authors may have used the term Atlantic cod, others may have used northern cod, or simply cod in the title or abstract of an item."

Low Intensity Conflict Thesaurus

"This thesaurus is a presentation of terms to be used for the indexing and retrieval of documents dealing with the subject area of Low Intensity Conflict (LIC). A wide range of documents and reports relevant to LIC were selected, catalogued and indexed from open literature as part of a feasibility study on an Information Analysis Centre (IAC). The Thesaurus of Engineering and Scientific Terms (TEST) was used initially for indexing terms but it became apparent that the subject matter required a broader range of terms in areas not covered comprehensively by TEST.

International Development Research Centre Library Thesaurus

"When the IDRC Library began to index the material in its collection and to build a data base using the ISIS computer systems, the OECD's Macrothesaurus was selected as the source of descriptors for indexing and retrieval. At that time it was hoped that the international and other organizations also using the Macrothesaurus would construct a joint operation to keep it up to date and to modify it in the light of experience.
