creatorRole and contributorRole Vocabulary

"creatorRole is used to identify the role played by the person, people or organization(s) identified in the companion descriptor creator. The PBCore schema allows for creatorRole to be repeated in the pbcoreCreator container element. This can be useful when a single person or organization is associated with multiple roles in an asset.

instantiationRelationType Vocabulary

"instantiationRelationType describes the relation between the instantiation being described and another instantiation.
Best practice: The instantiations may be related in that they are different discrete parts of a single intellectual unit, they may be generationally related, one may be a derivative of another, they may be different versions."

pbcoreRelationType Vocabulary

"pbcoreRelationType describes the relationship between the asset being describe by the pbcore document and any other asset. Ideally it would contain text from a controlled vocabulary for describing relationships. There is some depth to what a relationship could be. The assets can be related as different episodes in a series, different tapes in a box set, or different versions of an original, among others.

@dateType Vocabulary

"dateType is an attribute that classifies by named type the date-related data of the element e.g., created, broadcast, dateAvailableStart.
Best practice: Used to clarify how the date is related to the asset or instantiation. Date Created may be the most common, but the element could also be used to describe the Date Accessioned or Date Deaccessioned, for example. Can be used as an attribute of the following elements: pbcoreAssetDate, instantiationDate."

PBCoreAssetType Vocabulary

"pbcoreAssetType is a broad definition of the type of intellectual content being described. Asset types might include those without associated instantiations (a collection or series), or those with instantiations (programs, episodes, clips, etc.)
Best practice: The asset type should broadly describe all related instantiations — for example, if an asset includes many instantiations representing different generations of a program, the asset type ‘program’ remains accurate for all of them."

UHRs termbase for universitets- og høgskolesektoren

"A collection of 2000 administrative terms with English - Norwegian bokmål/Norwegian bokmål - English and English - Norwegian nynorsk/Norwegian nynorsk - English translations, from the Norwegian Institutions of Higher Education.

The termbase translates from Norwegian bokmål/Norwegian nynorsk to British English and the other way round. (The base uses the Oxford University Press house style.)"

The Workflow Motif Ontology

"Scientific workflows have been increasingly used in the last decade as an instrument for data intensive science. Workflows serve a dual function: first, as detailed documentation of the scientific method used for an experiment (i. e. the input sources and processing steps taken for the derivation of a certain data item), and second, as re-usable, executable artifacts for data-intensive analysis.


"XKOS leverages the Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS) for managing statistical classifications and concept management systems, since SKOS is widely used. LOD is used to create Web artifacts that machines can interpret, so publishing machine-readable statistical classifications and other concept management systems as SKOS instances is desired. The XKOS developers found that SKOS was insufficient for the problem. No aspect of SKOS was found to be wrong, just incomplete. Therefore, an extension to SKOS, called XKOS, is proposed.
