Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS) is a language designed to represent thesauri and other knowledge organisation systems.  It encodes these products in a systematised way using RDF to make their structures comparable and to facilitate interaction.

The UK Data Archive applied SKOS to ELSST as part of the ESRC-funded CESSDA-ELSST project. Applying SKOS to ELSST means that the thesaurus is more widely available and more usable.

We have used Pubby (open source technology, developed by Richard Cyganiak and Chris Bizer from the Freie Universitat Berlin) to host SKOS-ELSST.
