    A Novel Method for Ranking Knowledge Organization Systems (KOSs) Based on Cognition States.Maziar Amirhosseini - 2023 - Knowledge Organization 49 (6):391-410.
    The purpose of this article is to delineate the process of evolution of know­ledge organization systems (KOSs) through identification of principles of unity such as internal and external unity in organizing the structure of KOSs to achieve content storage and retrieval purposes and to explain a novel method used in ranking of KOSs by proposing the principle of rank unity. Different types of KOSs which are addressed in this article include dictionaries, Roget’s thesaurus, thesauri, micro, macro, and meta-thesaurus, ontologies, and (...)

    Classification of Print-Based Cartographic Materials: A Survey and Analysis.Catherine Hodge, Tim Kiser & Susan M. Moore - 2023 - Knowledge Organization 49 (6):423-434.
    This paper examines the predominant systems used for the classification of print-based cartographic materials (primarily atlases and sheet maps). We present the results of a brief, widely distributed survey on the topic, followed by discussions of the distinctive characteristics of the classification systems used by survey respondents. The Library of Congress Classification and Dewey Decimal Classification systems were found to be widely used, with several other schemes also in use.

    Metadata Elements for Children in Theory and Practice.Elmira Karimi & Majid Nabavi - 2023 - Knowledge Organization 49 (6):435-447.
    This research aimed to investigate the status of children-specific metadata elements in theory (existing literature) and practice (metadata standards and children’s digital libraries). Literature reviews as well as two cases, including children’s online national libraries of Iran, and Singapore, are used to identify children-specific metadata elements and their application. The results revealed that descriptive metadata types had been mentioned more than analytical, social, and relational types; the DCMI metadata standard, besides LOM and ALTO metadata standards, can be used to develop (...)

    An Analysis on the Use of Knowledge Organization Systems in the Process of Requirements Engineering.Jeronimo de Macedo, Douglas Dyllon & Priscila Basto Fagundes - 2023 - Knowledge Organization 49 (6):411-422.
    Some of the fundamental activities of the software development process are related to the discipline of Requirements Engineering. Their objectives are to discover, analyze, document, and verify the system’s requirements. The requirements are the conditions or capabilities that software needs to have or fulfill to meet its users’ needs, and problems in its identification can mean the failure of a software project. This study is part of the research that is being developed to propose a model based on Know­ledge Organization (...)

    Mapping and Analyzing the Scientific Map of Knowledge Organization Using Research Indexed in the WOS Database.and Iman Nikijoo, Kiarash Fartash, Saeed Ramezani & Ali Asghar Sadabadi - 2023 - Knowledge Organization 49 (6):448-464.
    Scientometrics has found many applications in describing, explaining and predicting the scientific status of researchers, educational and research groups, universities, organizations and countries in various national and international arenas. By studying the scientific products of different countries, their status in the production of science can be evaluated. Present study was conducted using a scientometrics approach and using co-word analysis and social network analysis (SNA) to investigate relationships in the field of know­ledge organization. In this regard, research indexed in web of (...)
