This page contains release versions of the Bioschemas specifications. Ongoing changes are published via the drafts page.

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.
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. Again, working versions are published in the drafts page.
