Klink-2 among the top-cited ISWC papers in the past 5 years

We are extremely pleased to see that our paper about Klink-2 [1] is included in the list generated by Google Scholar (link), which presents the most cited papers published in the past 5 years at the International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC). This is the main international forum for showcasing the latest academic and industrial results for the Semantic Web and Linked Data community.  In particular, between 2014 and 2018, 355 papers were published in ISWC, giving the conference an overall h5-index of 37 – this means that the 37 top-cited ISWC articles published in this period obtained at least 37 citations each.  

Klink-2 is an algorithm that generates an ontology of research topics by processing scholarly metadata (titles, abstracts, keywords, authors, venues) and external sources (e.g. DBpedia, call for papers, web pages). The Klink algorithm has been used to generate the Computer Science Ontology (CSO- http://cso.kmi.open.ac.uk/), the largest taxonomy of research topics in Computer Science. CSO powers several innovative solutions, including the CSO Classifier (http://cso.kmi.open.ac.uk/classify/), Smart Topic Miner (http://stm-demo.kmi.open.ac.uk), and Smart Book Recommender (http://rexplore.kmi.open.ac.uk/SBR-demo/).  All of these technologies have been adopted by our main industrial partner, Springer Nature, and form the basis for several other partnerships with both academic and industrial organizations.
