Draft Bioschemas Specifications

The specifications on this page are a work in progress. We would be delighted to receive your comments on these specifications ( public-bioschemas@w3.org), but please do not use these within your work. Should you wish to markup your data according to the Bioschema's specifications, use those described on the main Specifications page.

Profiles

The Bioschemas' profiles define a community agreed layer over the Schema.org model providing additional constraints. These constraints capture (i) the information properties agreed by the community which are minimum (M), recommended (R), or optional (O), (ii) the cardinality of the property, i.e. whether it is expected to occur once or many times, and (iii) associated controlled vocabulary terms drawn from existing ontologies.

Note: draft versions that are identical to the release version will only have a 2 digit version number, e.g., v0.1. If they have been updated the version number will contain 3 digits, e.g., v0.1-draft.1.

Types

We have found it necessary to propose some additional types to the Schema.org vocabulary. These are specified below and are expected to be pushed up to Schema.org once they have stabalised.

Once again, these documents represent a work in progress and should not be the basis of your own work.

Note: draft versions that are identical to the release version will only have a 2 digit version number, e.g., v0.1. If they have been updated the version number will contain 3 digits, e.g., v0.1-draft.1.
