The importance of controlled vocabularies – explained in ODISSEI’s blog post

11 October 2022

The ODISSEI FAIR Support Team is initiating a series of blog posts explaining the world of FAIR data by giving background information and explanations. 

The first blog post covers the topic of controlled vocabularies. What exactly do we mean by controlled vocabularies? And how does it differ from a taxonomy or a thesaurus? Why are controlled vocabularies important and how do they contribute to FAIR? All of these questions are covered in this blog post.  You can find the blog post here. It is created by the ODISSEI FAIR Support Team in which DANS is a partner. More information about ODISSEI FAIR Support is available on this website.
