Plan de Classement de la BSI

"Le plan de classement de la BSI est spécifique. Dès l’origine, il a été choisi de ne pas utiliser les classifications préexistantes, telles que la CDU ou la Dewey. La BSI a donc élaboré son propre outil.

"The BSI classification scheme is specific, and from the outset it has been chosen not to use pre-existing classifications such as CDU or Dewey, so BSI has developed its own tool.

"Realfagstermer is a multilingual, controlled vocabulary of pre-coordinated subject headings which mainly covers the physical sciences, mathematics and computer science. It is maintained by the University of Oslo Science Library in collaboration with the University of Bergen Science Library, and covers mainly the physical sciences, mathematics and computer science. As of January 2015, the vocabulary consists of approximately 15 000 single concept headings, and about 16 000 compound headings ("subject strings"), published as open data for everyone to use freely."

PLOS Subject Area Thesaurus

"The 'Subject Areas' panel on each article page displays a set of terms selected for that article based on its content. The Subject Areas belong to a thesaurus of over 10,000 terms initially built for us over the course of 2012 by Access Innovations, taking into account the controlled vocabulary of classification terms that had been in use in PLOS Editorial Manager. The entire corpus of PLOS articles was analysed to ensure that the thesaurus covers the research domain comprehensively.

"In the fall of 1965, two large projects were set in motion to develop contemporary thesauri in the fields of engineering and science. One was originated by Engineers Joint Council to revise the first edition of its Thesaurus of Engineering Terms (1964); the other, by the Department of Defense, under the sponsorship of the Office of Naval Research and known as Project LEX, which had as its mission the development of the first Department of Defense technical thesaurus.
