Knowledge Organization Systems (KOS), such as classification systems, gazetteers, lexical databases, ontologies, taxonomies and thesauri, attempt to model the underlying semantic structure of a domain for the purposes of retrieval. Traditionally the focus has been on construction of print-based resources. Possibilities for networked KOS-based services are emerging but pose new challenges in today's complex, interdisciplinary knowledge domains. This special issue invites contributions from researchers and practitioners who are engaged in rethinking traditional approaches to design of KOS, indexing services, cross-mapping, browsing, searching, personalisation, systems integration, update and maintenance.
This call builds on recent NKOS workshops at JCDL, ECDL and DC. More generally, we welcome submissions that fit the scope of the call from all interested parties and communities. All submissions will be subject to peer review. Advance indication of intent to submit is helpful.
Submissions should be sent by email to the Editor, preferably in Word, rtf or pdf format. If you have any questions concerning the scope of the call or require further information, please contact the Editor. Open topic papers meeting NRHM's scope in general are also welcome.
