The CESSDA Vocabulary Service enables communities and organisations to create, manage and publish their own vocabularies, thus enhancing data interoperability by enabling users to search and download controlled vocabularies. The CESSDA Vocabulary Service provides a discovery interface where vocabularies can be searched, browsed, and downloaded, and an editing interface where vocabularies are managed, translated, and versioned using persistent identifiers and citations.
Smaller organisations may face technical and resource constraints when hosting and managing their own vocabularies. The CESSDA Vocabulary Service alleviates these challenges by providing a reliable and user-friendly platform to host and manage vocabularies, making it easier for organisations to share and exchange their controlled vocabularies with others.
