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
