Ontology is an important technique for semantic interpretation. However, the most existing ontologies are simple computational models based on only "super-" and "sub-class" relationships. In this paper, a computational model is presented for ontology mining, which analyzes the semantic relations of "part-of", "kind-of" and "related-to", and interprets the semantics of individual information need. The model is evaluated by comparing the knowledge mined by it, against the knowledge generated manually by linguists. The proposed model enhances Web information gathering from keyword-based to subject(concept)-based. It is a new contribution to knowledge engineering and management.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
