Linked Open Data terminologies such as controlled vocabularies, standard data and application ontologies are a key element for interoperable, easily reusable, FAIR research data. The NFDI4Culture task area "Standards, Data Quality, Curation" is organizing an online forum to assess the current state of application practice and the prospects for future joint facilitated integration of Linked Open Data vocabularies.

The humanities face a particular challenge here, as they require a wide range of vocabularies for describing and referencing of historical entities (persons, geographies, corporate bodies, works/objects, etc.), but also for the sufficiently specific subject indexing of their objects.

While there is as yet no vocabulary that meets all needs equally or is accepted as standard in all disciplines, there is a great deal of overlap in the needs and practices of the humanities domains. Although there is a growing awareness of the strategic role of controlled vocabularies for sustainable data in the scholorary communities, application practice is still very inconsistent.

The event will present the assessments of current practice and the approaches taken or proposed by the humanities NFDI consortia to support their researchers in the use of terminologies. The discussion will provide an opportunity to identify where future services should focus in order to develop the potential of shared terminologies.

The event will be held in German. More information on the programme and registration will be available here soon.
