    The IEEE Thesaurus is a controlled vocabulary of over 9,600 descriptive engineering, technical and scientific terms, as well as IEEE-specific society terms [referred to as descriptors or preferred terms *]. Each descriptor included in the thesaurus represents a single concept or unit of thought. The descriptors are considered the preferred terms for use in describing IEEE content. The scope of descriptors is based on the material presented in IEEE journals, conference papers, standards, and/or IEEE organizational material. A controlled vocabulary is a specific terminology used in a consistent and controlled fashion that results in better information searching and retrieval. Thesaurus construction is based on the ANSI/NISO Z39.19-2005 standard, Guidelines for the Construction, Format, and Management of Monolingual Controlled Vocabulary. The Thesaurus vocabulary uses American-based spellings with cross references to British variant spellings. The scope and structure of the IEEE Thesaurus reflects the engineering and scientific disciplines that comprise the Societies, Councils, and Communities of the IEEE in addition to the technologies IEEE serves. IEEE has developed its controlled vocabulary through consultation with subject matter experts (specialists in a particular field) and specialists in information analysis. The IEEE Thesaurus thus provides a controlled vocabulary of subject headings to help people categorize or search for engineering and computing concepts, especially IEEE published content.

    The IEEE Thesaurus also provides a conceptual map through the use of semantic relationships such as broader terms (BT), narrower terms (NT), 'used for' relationships (USE/UF), and related terms (RT). These semantic relationships identify theoretical connections between terms. Italic text denotes Non-preferred terms. Bold text is used for preferred headings. Abbreviations used in the Thesaurus: BT - Broader term NT - Narrower term RT - Related term USE- Use preferred term UF - Used for *Refer to ANSI/NISO Z39.19-2005 Sections 5 through 8 for detailed information on controlled vocabularies, display formats, usage and spelling, and selection criteria for descriptors (
