Abstract: The Unified Astronomy Thesaurus (UAT) is an open, interoperable, and community-supported thesaurus of astronomical and astrophysical concepts and their relationships. Management of the UAT is based on a community-supported approach. This will ensure that the thesaurus stays current by allowing users to suggest an addition or revision. These suggestions will then be subjected to a thorough expert review process before being accepted for addition to the UAT or rejected. Many leading astronomical institutions, professional associations, journal publishers, learned societies, and data repositories support the UAT as a standard astronomical terminology.
