Comparing thesauri within the same domain such as education, medicine, or physics represents another form of evaluation that will be mentioned in this paper. Such studies were performed frequently in the 1960s and 1970s when subject-oriented online retrieval systems were being developed and some vocabulary control mechanism had to be chosen. The National Science Foundation and other government agencies funded several such studies such as AUDACIOUS, SUPARS, ERIC, MEDICINE, PSYCHOLOGY, and ENVIRONMENT.
