• UDC activities in Russia: a VINITI report

      Arskiy, Yurij M (UDC Consortium, 2008-12)
      VINITI is the publisher of UDC schedules in Russian language and the only publisher that still maintains, develops and publishes a full UDC edition. Much of VINITIâ s effort is put into research and development of the classification, user support and training. Being part of the Russian Academy of Science, VINITIâ s main strength as classification publisher comes from its team of scientists, researchers and subject specialists that work on the development and maintenance of the knowledge organization terminology. VINITI maintains a Russian UDC database and is also responsible for the alignment of the UDC with the Russian Rubricator for Science and Technology, the official scientific taxonomy that serves as a unified indexing language for information exchange in the fields of scientific research and technology.
