            Knowledge Organization Systems and Services

University of Glamorgan, UK and Royal School of Library and Information

Submission deadline: January 16, 2006

Acceptance notification: February 27, 2006

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.


The New Review of Hypermedia and Multimedia is published by Taylor &
Francis and appears in both print and digital formats.  For more details
and indicative topics, see the journal website and the full call for
papers - 




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.
