Hi All,

We are happy to announce the release of qSKOS 0.9 [1], a Java library 
for quality assessment of SKOS vocabularies. It relies on a catalog of 
quality issues [2] that are based on existing literature as well as on 
expert feedback. From this catalog, automatically assessable quality 
functions have been created that can be applied on any vocabulary using 
the SKOS ontology.
The findings can be used for supporting taxonomists to spot possible 
shortcomings and mistakes in their vocabularies.

Further information about the quality issues, including a survey of 15 
SKOS vocabularies using qSKOS quality assessment can be found in our 
TPDL2012 paper [3].

The qSKOS sourcecode is freely available under a Creative Commons 
license. Any comments, bug reports and suggestions for new features are 
very much appreciated!

best,
Christian
