Web Services for Economics

As the publisher of the STW Thesaurus for Economics, ZBW provides experimental thesaurus web services for use by humans and by machines. In the first instance these services are designed to support autosuggest functions and query expansion in the context of information retrieval applications. Parts of the delivered data originate from datasets which were created by third parties and shared through open licenses.

The services follow the REST design principles. All services uniformly support the HTTP GET method. Output can be obtained in various formats (experimentally including JSON-LD).
