  • Knowledge Organization Systems (KOS) in the Semantic Web: a
           multi-dimensional review
    • Abstract: Since the Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS) specification and its SKOS eXtension for Labels (SKOS-XL) became formal W3C recommendations in 2009, a significant number of conventional Knowledge Organization Systems (KOS) (including thesauri, classification schemes, name authorities, and lists of codes and terms, produced before the arrival of the ontology-wave) have made their journeys to join the Semantic Web mainstream. This paper uses “LOD KOS” as an umbrella term to refer to all of the value vocabularies and lightweight ontologies within the Semantic Web framework. The paper provides an overview of what the LOD KOS movement has brought to various communities and users. These are not limited to the colonies of the value vocabulary constructors and providers, nor the catalogers and indexers who have a long history of applying the vocabularies to their products. The LOD dataset producers and LOD service providers, the information architects and interface designers, and researchers in sciences and humanities, are also direct beneficiaries of LOD KOS. The paper examines a set of the collected cases (experimental or in real applications) and aims to find the usages of LOD KOS in order to share the practices and ideas among communities and users. Through the viewpoints of a number of different user groups, the functions of LOD KOS are examined from multiple dimensions. This paper focuses on the LOD dataset producers, vocabulary producers, and researchers (as end-users of KOS).

  • Designing an ontology for managing the diets of hypertensive individuals
    • Abstract: This paper describes the development of an ontology which could act as a recommendation system for hypertensive individuals. The author has conceptualized and developed an ontology which describes recipes, nutrients in foods and the interactions between nutrients and prescribed drugs, disease and general health. The paper begins with a review of the literature on several ontology designs. The previous ontology models guide the development of classes, properties and restrictions built into the hypertensive diet ontology. The model is constructed following the Ontology 101 methodology. The ontology was validated using proto-personas to create competency questions which were used to test the ontology. The findings show that the ontology may be used to provide information with the goal of assisting individuals in making sense of complex effects of diet on health and outcomes. It is concluded that the ontology can be used to provide support to patients as they seek to manage chronic illnesses such as hypertension. The study has relevance for creators of knowledge organization systems and ontologies in the healthcare field.

  • An empirically validated, onomasiologically structured, and linguistically
           motivated online terminology
    • Abstract: Terminological resources play a central role in the organization and retrieval of scientific texts. Both simple keyword lists and advanced modelings of relationships between terminological concepts can make a most valuable contribution to the analysis, classification, and finding of appropriate digital documents, either on the web or within local repositories. This seems especially true for long-established scientific fields with elusive theoretical and historical branches, where the use of terminology within documents from different origins is often far from being consistent. In this paper, we report on the progress of a linguistically motivated project on the onomasiological re-modeling of the terminological resources for the grammatical information system grammis. We present the design principles and the results of their application. In particular, we focus on new features for the authoring backend and discuss how these innovations help to evaluate existing, loosely structured terminological content, as well as to efficiently deal with automatic term extraction. Furthermore, we introduce a transformation to a future SKOS representation. We conclude with a positioning of our resources with regard to the Knowledge Organization discourse and discuss how a highly complex information environment like grammis benefits from the re-designed terminological KOS.

           entities and their role in indexing
    • Abstract: This paper explores the possible role of named entities extracted from text in subtitles in automatic indexing of TV programs. This is done by analyzing entity types, name density and name frequencies in subtitles and metadata records from different genres of TV programs. The name density in metadata records is much higher than the name density in subtitles, and named entities with high frequencies in the subtitles are more likely to be mentioned in the metadata records. Further analysis of the metadata records indicates an increase in use of named entities in metadata in accordance with the frequency the entities have in the subtitles. The most substantial difference was between a frequency of one or two, where the named entities with a frequency of two in the subtitles were twice as likely to be present in the metadata records. Personal names, geographical names and names of organizations were the most prominent entity types in both the news subtitles and news metadata, while persons, creative works and locations are the most prominent in culture programs. It is not possible to extract all the named entities in the manually created metadata records by applying named entity recognition to the subtitles for the same programs, but it is possible to find a large subset of named entities for some categories in certain genres. The results reported in this paper show that subtitles are a good source for personal names for all the genres covered in our study, and for creative works in literature programs. In total, it was possible to find 38% of the named entities in metadata records for news programs, 32% for literature programs, while 21% of the named entities in metadata records for talk shows were also present in the subtitles for the programs.

  • Analyzing the network structure and gender differences among the members
           of the Networked Knowledge Organization Systems (NKOS) community
    • Abstract: In this paper, we analyze a major part of the research output of the Networked Knowledge Organization Systems (NKOS) community in the period 2000–2016 from a network analytical perspective. We focus on the papers presented at the European and US NKOS workshops and in addition four special issues on NKOS in the last 16 years. For this purpose, we have generated an open dataset, the “NKOS bibliography” which covers the bibliographic information of the research output. We analyze the co-authorship network of this community which results in 123 papers with a sum of 256 distinct authors. We use standard network analytic measures such as degree, betweenness and closeness centrality to describe the co-authorship network of the NKOS dataset. First, we investigate global properties of the network over time. Second, we analyze the centrality of the authors in the NKOS network. Lastly, we investigate gender differences in collaboration behavior in this community. Our results show that apart from differences in centrality measures of the scholars, they have higher tendency to collaborate with those in the same institution or the same geographic proximity. We also find that homophily is higher among women in this community. Apart from small differences in closeness and clustering among men and women, we do not find any significant dissimilarities with respect to other centralities.

  • A way to express the reliability of archaeological data: data traceability
           at the Laboratoire Archéologie et Territoires (Tours, France)
    • Abstract: In order to respect the good practices in archaeology disseminated by the MASA Consortium (Archaeologists and Archaeological Sites Memories), the Laboratoire Archéologie et Territoires (Tours, France) wished to evaluate the progress of ArSol database (Soil Archives), its field data management database, with regard to the FAIR principles or the Five-Star Linked Open Data. The work undertaken to achieve compliance with these precepts has shown that it is also necessary to ensure the relevance and reliability of the published data. For data to be reusable, it seems essential to ensure traceability. Various tools’ set-up for the ArSol database makes it possible to ensure this traceability from the field recording, through its exploitation, to the publication of the results of the excavation. The traceability of data, to ensure their quality in terms of reliability and relevance, is an aspect that is fortunately already taken into account in the ArSol database and that complements satisfactorily the FAIR principles requirements.

  • Identification of tweets that mention books
    • Abstract: We address the task of identifying tweets that mention books from amongst tweets that contain the same strings as book titles. Assuming the existence of a comprehensive list of book titles, this task can be defined as text classification targeting tweets that contain the same string as book titles. In carrying out the task, we need to exclude two types of tweets. The first is automatically posted, spam-like tweets that promote book sales or post recommendations (bot tweets). This type of tweets is excluded because we are developing an online surrogate to book exposure embedded within human communication on social media, and the results of the present task are to be used in this system. The second is tweets that contain the same string as book titles but are not about books (noise tweets). We proposed a two-step, machine learning-based pipeline consisting of bot filtering followed by noise reduction. Evaluation of experiments showed that our proposed method achieved an F1-score of 0.76, which is comparable to the best performance reported in similar tasks and sufficient as a first step for use in practical applications. We also analysed the detailed performance and errors, which suggested that the proposed method maintained an appropriate balance between precision and recall, and can be further improved by increasing the data size and taking into account word senses.

  • Assessing the quality of answers autonomously in community
           question–answering
    • Abstract: Community question–answering (CQA) has become a popular method of online information seeking. Within these services, peers ask questions and create answers to those questions. For some time, content repositories created through CQA sites have widely supported general-purpose tasks; however, they can also be used as online digital libraries that satisfy specific needs related to education. Horizontal CQA services, such as Yahoo! Answers, and vertical CQA services, such as Brainly, aim to help students improve their learning process via Q&A exchanges. In addition, Stack Overflow—another vertical CQA—serves a similar purpose but specifically focuses on topics relevant to programmers. Receiving high-quality answer(s) to a posed CQA query is a critical factor to both user satisfaction and supported learning in these services. This process can be impeded when experts do not answer questions and/or askers do not have the knowledge and skills needed to evaluate the quality of the answers they receive. Such circumstances may cause learners to construct a faulty knowledge base by applying inaccurate information acquired from online sources. Though site moderators could alleviate this problem by surveying answer quality, their subjective assessments may cause evaluations to be inconsistent. Another potential solution lies in human assessors, though they may also be insufficient due to the large amount of content available on a CQA site. The following study addresses these issues by proposing a framework for automatically assessing answer quality. We accomplish this by integrating different groups of features—personal, community-based, textual, and contextual—to build a classification model and determine what constitutes answer quality. We collected more than 10 million educational answers posted by more than 3 million users on Brainly and 7.7 million answers on Stack Overflow to test this evaluation framework. The experiments conducted on these data sets show that the model using random forest achieves high accuracy in identifying high-quality answers. Findings also indicate that personal and community-based features have more prediction power in assessing answer quality. Additionally, other key metrics such as F1-score and area under ROC curve achieve high values with our approach. The work reported here can be useful in many other contexts that strive to provide automatic quality assessment in a digital repository.

  • Heritage Science and Cultural Heritage: standards and tools for
           establishing cross-domain data interoperability
    • Abstract: This paper describes a system for documenting scientific data produced in Heritage Sciences. The system is built around a general meta-model, flexible enough to provide descriptions, in a formal language, of the datasets produced by scientific research. Resulting metadata can be re-encoded and published in multiple formats. The underlying metadata schema is inspired by CIDOC CRM principles for data modelling and maintains a full compatibility with CIDOC CRM ontology to capture provenance and foster interoperability with Cultural Heritage information. The use of a wide set of thesauri and controlled vocabularies guarantees internal coherence at data and metadata level. Applicability tests are underway at different institutions and a set of user interfaces has been designed to simplify and speed up the process of data gathering and metadata definition.

  • Content-based video retrieval in historical collections of the German
           Broadcasting Archive
    • Abstract: The German Broadcasting Archive maintains the cultural heritage of radio and television broadcasts of the former German Democratic Republic (GDR). The uniqueness and importance of the video material fosters a large scientific interest in the video content. In this paper, we present a system for automatic video content analysis and retrieval to facilitate search in historical collections of GDR television recordings. It relies on a distributed, service-oriented architecture and includes video analysis algorithms for shot boundary detection, concept classification, person recognition, text recognition and similarity search. The combination of different search modalities allows users to obtain answers for a wide range of queries, leading to satisfactory results in short time. The performance of the system is evaluated using 2500 h of GDR television recordings.

  • Benchmarking and evaluating the interpretation of bibliographic records
    • Abstract: In a global context which promotes the use of explicit semantics for sharing information and developing new services, the MAchine Readable Cataloguing (MARC) format that is commonly used by libraries worldwide has demonstrated its many limitations. The conceptual reference model for bibliographic information presented in the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) is expected to be the foundation for a new generation of catalogs that will replace MARC and the digital card catalog. The need for transformation of legacy MARC records to FRBR representation (FRBRization) has led to the proposal of various tools and approaches. However, these projects and the results they achieve are difficult to compare due to lack of common datasets and well defined and appropriate metrics. Our contributions fill this gap by proposing BIB-R, the first public benchmark for the FRBRization process. It is composed of two datasets that enable the identification of the strengths and weaknesses of a FRBRization tool. It also defines a set of well defined metrics that evaluate the different steps of the FRBRization process. Those resources, as well as the results of a large experiment involving three FRBRization tools tested against our benchmark, are available to the community under an open licence.

  • Ranking Dublin Core descriptor lists from user interactions: a case study
           with Dublin Core Terms using the Dendro platform
    • Abstract: Dublin Core descriptors capture metadata in most repositories, and this includes recent repositories dedicated to datasets. DC descriptors are generic and are being adapted to the requirements of different communities with the so-called Dublin Core Application Profiles that rely on the agreement within user communities, taking into account their evolving needs. In this paper, we propose an automated process to help curators and users discover the descriptors that best suit the needs of a specific research group in the task of describing and depositing datasets. Our approach is supported on Dendro, a prototype research data management platform, where an experimental method is used to rank and present DC Terms descriptors to the users based on their usage patterns. User interaction is recorded and used to score descriptors. In a controlled experiment, we gathered the interactions of two groups as they used Dendro to describe datasets from selected sources. One of the groups viewed descriptors according to the ranking, while the other had the same list of descriptors throughout the experiment. Preliminary results show that (1) some DC Terms are filled in more often than others, with different distribution in the two groups, (2) descriptors in higher ranks were increasingly accepted by users in detriment of manual selection, (3) users were satisfied with the performance of the platform, and (4) the quality of description was not hindered by descriptor ranking.

  • Discovering the structure and impact of the digital library evaluation
           domain
    • Abstract: The multidimensional nature of digital libraries evaluation domain poses several challenges to the research communities that intend to assess criteria, methods, products and tools, and also practice them. The amount of scientific production that is published in the domain hinders and disorientates the interested researchers. These researchers need guidance to exploit effectively the considerable amount of data and the diversity of methods, as well as to identify new research goals and develop their plans for future studies. This paper proposes a methodological pathway to investigate the core topics that structure the digital library evaluation domain and their impact. Further to the exploration of these topical entities, this study investigates also the researchers that contribute substantially to key topics, their communities and their relationships. The proposed methodology exploits topic modeling and network analysis in combination with citation and altmetrics analysis on a corpus consisting of the digital library evaluation papers presented in JCDL, ECDL/TDPL and ICADL conferences in the period 2001–2013.

  • Choice overload and recommendation effectiveness in related-article
           recommendations
    • Abstract: Choice overload describes a situation in which a person has difficulty in making decisions due to too many options. We examine choice overload when displaying related-article recommendations in digital libraries, and examine the effectiveness of recommendation algorithms in this domain. We first analyzed existing digital libraries, and found that only 30% of digital libraries show related-article recommendations to their users. Of these libraries, the majority (74%) displays 3–5 related articles; 28% of them display 6–10 related articles; and no digital library displayed more than ten related-article recommendations. We then conducted our experimental evaluation through GESIS’ digital library Sowiport, with recommendations delivered by recommendations-as-a-service provider Mr. DLib. We use four metrics to analyze 41.3 million delivered recommendations: click-through rate (CTR), percentage of clicked recommendation sets (clicked set rate, CSR), average clicks per clicked recommendation set (ACCS), and time to first click (TTFC), which is the time between delivery of a set of recommendations to the first click. These metrics help us to analyze choice overload and can yield evidence for finding the ideal number of recommendations to display. We found that with increasing recommendation set size, i.e., the numbers of displayed recommendations, CTR decreases from 0.41% for one recommendation to 0.09% for 15 recommendations. Most recommendation sets only receive one click. ACCS increases with set size, but increases more slowly for six recommendations and more. When displaying 15 recommendations, the average clicks per set is at a maximum (1.15). Similarly, TTFC increases with larger recommendation set size, but increases more slowly for sets of more than five recommendations. While CTR and CSR do not indicate choice overload, ACCS and TTFC point toward 5–6 recommendations as being optimal for Sowiport. Content-based filtering yields the highest CTR with 0.118%, while stereotype recommendations yield the highest ACCS (1.28). Stereotype recommendations also yield the highest TTFC. This means that users take more time before clicking stereotype recommendations when compared to recommendations based on other algorithms.

  • Improving semantic change analysis by combining word embeddings and word
           frequencies
    • Abstract: Language is constantly evolving. As part of diachronic linguistics, semantic change analysis examines how the meanings of words evolve over time. Such semantic awareness is important to retrieve content from digital libraries. Recent research on semantic change analysis relying on word embeddings has yielded significant improvements over previous work. However, a recent, but somewhat neglected observation so far is that the rate of semantic shift negatively correlates with word-usage frequency. In this article, we therefore propose SCAF, Semantic Change Analysis with Frequency. It abstracts from the concrete embeddings and includes word frequencies as an orthogonal feature. SCAF allows using different combinations of embedding type, optimization algorithm and alignment method. Additionally, we leverage existing approaches for time series analysis, by using change detection methods to identify semantic shifts. In an evaluation with a realistic setup, SCAF achieves better detection rates than prior approaches, 95% instead of 51%. On the Google Books Ngram data set, our approach detects both known and yet unknown shifts for popular words.

  • Expressiveness and machine processability of Knowledge Organization
           Systems (KOS): an analysis of concepts and relations
    • Abstract: This study considers the expressiveness (that is, the expressive power or expressivity) of different types of Knowledge Organization Systems (KOS) and discusses its potential to be machine-processable in the context of the semantic web. For this purpose, the theoretical foundations of KOS are reviewed based on conceptualizations introduced by the Functional Requirements for Subject Authority Data (FRSAD) and the Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS); natural language processing techniques are also implemented. Applying a comparative analysis, the dataset comprises a thesaurus (Eurovoc), a subject headings system (LCSH) and a classification scheme (DDC). These are compared with an ontology (CIDOC-CRM) by focusing on how they define and handle concepts and relations. It was observed that LCSH and DDC focus on the formalism of character strings (nomens) rather than on the modelling of semantics; their definition of what constitutes a concept is quite fuzzy, and they comprise a large number of complex concepts. By contrast, thesauri have a coherent definition of what constitutes a concept, and apply a systematic approach to the modelling of relations. Ontologies explicitly define diverse types of relations, and are by their nature machine-processable. The paper concludes that the potential of both the expressiveness and machine processability of each KOS is extensively regulated by its structural rules. It is harder to represent subject headings and classification schemes as semantic networks with nodes and arcs, while thesauri are more suitable for such a representation. In addition, a paradigm shift is revealed which focuses on the modelling of relations between concepts, rather than the concepts themselves.
