Call For Papers

Journal call for papers from Aslib Proceedings
Semantic Search and Linked Open Data Special Issue

This special issue aims to explore the possibilities and limitations of Semantic Search. This issue will be jointly guest edited by Professor Dr. Ulrike Spree, Hamburg University of Applied Sciences, Germany and Fran Alexander, BCA Research, Inc, Montreal, Canada. We are looking for articles on:

The opportunities and challenges of Semantic Search from theoretical and practical, conceptual and empirical perspectives. We are particularly interested in papers that place carefully conducted studies into the wider framework of current Semantic Search research in the broader context of Linked Open Data. Topics of interest include but are not restricted to:

The history of semantic search - the latest techniques and technology developments in the last 1000 years
Technical approaches to semantic search : linguistic/NLP, probabilistic, artificial intelligence, conceptual/ontological
Current trends in Semantic Search, including best practice, early adopters, and cultural heritage
Usability and user experience; Visualisation; and techniques and technologies in the practice for Semantic Search
Quality criteria and Impact of norms and standardisation similar to ISO 25964 “Thesauri for information retrieval“
Cross-industry collaboration and standardisation
Practical problems in brokering consensus and agreement - defining concepts, terms and classes, etc
Curation and management of ontologies
Differences between web-scale, enterprise scale, and collection-specific scale techniques
Evaluation of Semantic Search solutions, including comparison of data collection approaches
User behaviour including evolution of norms and conventions; Information behaviour; and Information literacy
User surveys; usage scenarios and case studies
Papers should clearly connect their studies to the wider body of Semantic Search scholarship, and spell out the implications of their findings for future research. In general, only research-based submissions including case studies and best practice will be considered. Viewpoints, literature reviews or general reviews are generally not acceptable.
