Science Keyword Aggregator

The Science Keyword Aggregator (KWA) is a service that allows users to search for defined keywords across a range of managed vocabularies.

In addition to the service, a widget that uses the service is available for system owners to embed in their application and thus provide term search there. Term selection statistics are maintained too so system owners need not specifically track term use in order to know what their users are doing.


To use the KWA's search directly, please see the Widget Page.
