The Motion Picture Industry generates and uses a vast quantity of data for a variety of purposes. However, limitations of current information search methods have lead to inefficiencies and introduced difficulties in finding the right information. We propose a domain ontology based search methodology to add a layer of semantics to search engine. Using the ontology the perspective of the user in relation to the concepts present in a given query can be determined. This may in turn lead to a better search experience for the user, as well as more relevant results being returned from a search. In order to achieve this we are developing the Loculus : a domain ontology for the Motion Picture Industry. The Loculus ontology is to be used with the Loculus system to provide a tool which the industry practitioners can use to better utilize the vast store of information that is constantly expanding.

Search Google Scholar™

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.
