The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing

Annotating document content: a knowledge-management perspective

The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing (2006), 25, (1), 23–27.

Abstract

Ontology-based annotation provides a method of making document content amenable to automatic searching and the construction of an index even when professional support is not a possibility. Research in this area is currently investigating applications both to the World Wide Web and to specific domains, e.g. in aerospace. Some of the tools developed to enable ontology-based annotation could help professional indexers increase their own efficiency.
