10 Years Later: The Mathematics Subject Classification and Linked Open Data Slideshow uri icon


  • Ten years ago, the Mathematics Subject Classification MSC 2010 was released, and a corresponding machine-readable Linked Open Data collection was published using the Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS). Now, the new MSC 2020 is out. The new SKOS form includes explicit marking of the changes from 2010 to 2020, some translations of English code descriptions into Chinese, Italian, and Russian, and extra material relating MSC to other mathematics classification efforts. We also outline future potential uses for MSC2020-SKOS in semantic indexing and sketch its embedding in a larger vision of scientific research data.
