info:eu-repo is an application profile defining vocabulary encoding schemes and terms.
It is hosted at SURF:

The namespace info:eu-repo is registered at
This name space is an authoritative placeholder for semantic terms, controlled vocabularies and identifiers.
By using this namespace all the terms used have a “web presence”. Therefore it is no longer an arbitrary string, but contains meaning. This utilisation makes it future-proof.

The INFO URI namespace has been DISCONTINUED since 22 May 2010!! The website writes: “it has been deemed appropriate to close the registry to further “info” namespace registrations. The “info” registry willcontinue to be supported for the foreseeable future, although prudent adopters should consider migrating their resource identity requirements towards mainstream Web practices over the long term.”

The following tables provide a mapping between info:eu-repo and COAR Controlled Vocabularies.

Mapping of COAR Resource Type Vocabulary with info:eu-repo/semantics publication types

Backward compatibility to the controlled list of publication types in info:eu-repo/semantics is taken serious.
The table below suggests a mapping from terms in info:eu-repo/semantics to corresponding concepts in the COAR Resource Type vocabulary.
