# Default prefixes
By default the configured
RDF.default_prefixes/0 are defined before every query. See the section about Managing prefixes for more on that. So, unless you've configured additional
default_prefixes or set
false, you'll get these prefixes implicitly and can use them on every query without having to define them all the time.

You can also provide your own query-specific default prefixes with the
default_prefixes option on the
SPARQL.query/1 function. Setting this option to
nil or an empty map disables the
default_prefixes just on a single query.
The prefixes you're using in your query are also used for the
RDF.Graph build with
CONSTRUCT queries, so it might be useful to also specify additional prefixes in
CONSTRUCT queries, which are not directly used in your query but in the nodes of the resulting graph (although you can also add those later programmatically with
