- Sep 3, 2009Hi Olga,
Dow Jones provides the Taxonomy Warehouse (part of the intellectual property they acquired when they bought Synaptica)
Look at http://www.taxonomywarehouse.com/resultsbycat_include.asp?vCatUID=40&catcode=080000
for general scitech knowledge organization systems.
Also, for medicine you may want to look at UMLS (many medical vocabs mapped to each other)....wow!
Careful, more concepts must be disambiguated in a cross-disciplinary scitech taxonomy. The more disciplines and concepts represented the more disambiguation is needed.
