Scholarly Communications Multilingual Lexicon

A collection of scholarly communications and open knowledge terms with translations.

We have started collecting terminology within the field of scholarly communication in order to undertake web searches for documents across languages. This lexicon is a work in progress to gather terminology in multiple languages. Terminology usage varies by country as well as by language, and direct translations do not always capture correct usage. We share this work in progress and welcome feedback and suggestions.


We welcome pull requests or issues at the github repository or comments on the Google Doc version.
