The Helsinki Term Bank for the Arts and Sciences (HTB) is a multidisciplinary project which aims to gather a permanent terminological database for all fields of research in Finland. The project has created a Semantic MediaWiki platform, which offers a collaborative environment. The semantic MediaWiki platform is an open collaborative website. This means that anyone can freely use it and also participate in the discussion about terms.

The data available for all users includes the following details:

  • The term and its synonyms in Finnish
  • Definition(s)
  • The concept's place in the concept system and concept diagrams
  • Information about the term’s morphological structure
  • Ostensive definitions (e.g. pictures)
  • Contexts (e.g. links to abstracts of articles)
  • Term equivalents in other languages (and information about the translatability of terms when necessary)
  • More information concerning the concept in question, e.g. about the theoretical framework, concept history and use of the term in academic discourse.

The working method is a type of limited crowd-sourcing, that is niche-sourcing. The terminology will be gathered among expert groups in different fields of research. The project started in three pilot projects: botany, jurisprudence, and linguistics. Other fields of research can join to the term bank as well.

The core of the terminological work is done by expert teams from various fields of the arts and science. The members of each expert team have access to a wide range of wiki editing resources and can add information into every slot of the database in their field of expertise. They will also label the definition of a term as “checked” when they think that it meets the standards of the field. It is also possible to include existing terminologies in the bank – of course with the permission of those who own the copyright.

Meneillään on laajentumisvaihe: kaikki kiinnostuneet tieteenalat voivat perustaa omia aihealueitaan ja asiantuntijaryhmiään termipankkiin. Aktiivista termityötä tekevä työryhmä voi hakea rahoitusta myös Tieteen termipankin yhteistyökumppanina. Tällä tavalla on edistetty mm. Monitieteisen humanistisen termityön hanketta vuodesta 2015 lähtien Helsingin yliopiston, Suomen kulttuurirahaston ja Koneen Säätiön tuella. Historian aihealue on saanut tukea myös Georg ja Ella Ehrnroothin säätiöltä.

The Helsinki Term Bank for the Arts and Sciences is an infrastructure project funded by the Academy of Finland and the University of Helsinki. The project is situated at the Faculty of Arts. The goals of the project serve language policy and sociology of science as well. An extensive Finnish research terminology bank will help those researchers, translators, journalists and others who write about research and its results in the arts and sciences and in Finnish. By gathering the scientific terminology in one place, the bank also improves the possibilities for multidisciplinary discussion and research. The HTB has been accepted to the national road map of research infrastructures as a cooperative partner of Fin-Clarin since 2014 and as part of the FIN-CLARIAH consortium from the year 2021 on.

The project cooperates with the Federation for Finnish Learned Societies. The experts come from both the member societies of the FFLS (TSV) and from universities and work as volunteers. The project also has other cooperative partners, such as the Research Institute for the Languages of Finland (Kotus), and terminologists, for example, from The Finnish Terminology Centre TSK. The project has a steering groups, with one representative on behalf of the FFLS and the other representing expertise in linguistics, language technology and language planning. The project is affiliated with the Finnish Language Resource Consortium FIN-CLARIN, and through this affiliation, has a connection to the European infrastructure ESFRI.
