I am looking for a triple RDF dataset or vocabulary for a psychology website I am developing. I have a large XML schema database and am looking to translate this database to one RDF serialization format. I've searched for websites that have vocabulary such as lov.okfn.org/dataset/lov, but could not find any related vocabulary to translate the data.

Are there any website or methodology that have such a triple data store for the website? Any suggestions on building an open data triplestore for such purposes?

    Would it be possible to provide a link to the website you mentioned? Could you post an example of your existing XML database? Either would help a lot. Also, please integrate what you just wrote into your main question to make it clearer – thanks :) Commented Mar 31, 2015 at 10:22
  • Do you consider Psychiatric Genomics to be 'psychology'? If so, med.unc.edu/pgc/downloads (found via nimh.nih.gov/about/director/2013/open-data.shtml )

The Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms, published by one of your employer's (?) customers, is known now as Psychology Ontology.

This ontology is not even a taxonomy, but rather a flat list of classes.

BioPortal provides mappings between this ontology and many other ontologies.

Additionally, BioPortal contains other ontologies published by APA:

The OntoPsychia ontology seems very interesting, but is not available for download.
