NPG Article Types Ontology

The NPG ArticleTypes Ontology is a categorization of kinds of publication which are used to index and group content published by Springer Nature. This taxonomy is organised into a single tree using the SKOS vocabulary. It includes article-types that are directly applied to content, such as Article, Review Article, News, or Book Review plus higher-level groupings such as Research, News and Comment, or Amendments and Corrections.
