DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2015.32.2.007
While there are several measures for node centralities, such as betweenness and degree, few centrality measures for local centralities in weighted networks have been suggested. This study developed a generalized centrality measure for calculating local centralities in weighted networks. Neighbor centrality, which was suggested in this study, is the generalization of the degree centrality for binary networks and the nearest neighbor centrality for weighted networks with the parameter
. The characteristics of suggested measure and the proper value of parameter
are investigated with 6 real network datasets and the results are reported.

Hahm, Jung Eun ; Song, Min ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 32, issue 2, 2015, Pages 87~103
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2015.32.2.087
It is useful to find something valuable for researching through literature based discovery. Swanson`s ABC model, known as literature based discovery, suggests the relationship between entities undiscovered yet. This study tries to find the valid relationship between entities by referring to citation which connects articles on similar topic. We collect citation from references in articles, and extract important concepts in titles and abstracts through text mining techniques. We reproduce the relationship between fish oil and Raynaud`s disease, which is known as one of Swanson`s works, and compare the results with entities identified from traditional approach.

A Study on Conversion Methods for Generating RDF Ontology from Structural Terminology Net (STNet) based on RDB
Ko, Young Man ; Lee, Seung-Jun ; Song, Min-Sun ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 32, issue 2, 2015, Pages 131~152
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2015.32.2.131
This study described the results of converting RDB to RDF ontology by each of R2RML method and Non-R2RML method. This study measured the size of the converted data, the conversion time per each tuple, and the response speed to queries. The STNet, a structured terminology dictionary based on RDB, was served as a test bed for converting to RDF ontology. As a result of the converted data size, Non-R2RML method appeared to be superior to R2RML method on the number of converted triples, including its expressive diversity. For the conversion time per each tuple, Non-R2RML was a little bit more faster than R2RML, but, for the response speed to queries, both methods showed similar response speed and stable performance since more than 300 numbers of queries. On comprehensive examination it is evaluated that Non-R2RML is the more appropriate to convert the dynamic RDB system, such as the STNet in which new data are steadily accumulated, data transformation very often occurred, and relationships between data continuously changed.

The purpose of this research was to investigate the characteristics of library and information science (LIS) field in Asian countries, focusing on the case of Taiwan. In order to conduct this study, the obtained statistical data and co-authorship networks based on eight major LIS journals in Taiwan were analyzed and compared to the case of South Korea. In Taiwan like Korea, papers published by a single-author and 2 to 3 co-authors were the most common. The centrality analysis showed that leading professors in the national-level university in Taiwan have strong and distinctive ties in the network. Additional unique characteristics pertaining to collaboration in Taiwan include the existence of journals focused on practical aspects in the field of LIS and active research participation involving librarians who publish papers in these journals.
Extracting Evaluation Criteria for Evaluating Ontology Quality
Kim, Seonghun ; Oh, Sam Gyun ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 32, issue 2, 2015, Pages 193~219
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2015.32.2.193
The focus of traditional evaluations of ontologies is largely performance-based. A comparison of a new ontology with well-established ones, testing of ontologies in different applications, as well as any judgment of an ontology`s appropriateness and relatedness to source data heavily rely on what results that ontology seems to manifest. This study, on the other hand, is an attempt to evaluate the quality of a particular ontology as manifested by its structure, representation, and interoperability. To that end, major categories of quality evaluations were first identified through an extensive survey of literature. Evaluation questions were formulated from these categories using the Delphi method and were validated by ontology experts. The entire process produced a set of 53 evaluation questions, which was then employed to test the quality of a newly-developed smartphone ontology.
