About the Vocabs editor

The purpose of the Vocabs editor is to provide a service for collaborative work on controlled vocabularies development.

The editor follows the SKOS data model for the main elements of a vocabulary. The Dublin core schema is used to capture the metadata (such as date created, date modified, creator, contributor, source and other) about each element. Each concept scheme can be downloaded in RDF/XML and Turtle format as well as each individual concept.

The user management system allows a user to share a concept scheme she/he created with other users (called 'curators') to create new, edit and delete concepts and collections within this concept scheme. Each user can find a summary of their latest activity on user's page.

The tool also provides API to retrieve the data.
