Special Issue Call for Papers


The Journal of Web Semantics invites submissions for a special issue on Knowledge Graphs and Information Retrieval, to be edited by Zhifeng Bao, Gong Cheng and Jeff Z. Pan. Submissions are due by 30th November 2021.



There is a strong connection between Knowledge Graph (KG) and Information Retrieval (IR) research, but their communities are almost disjointed, e.g., in terms of citations between ISWC and SIGIR papers. Within the Semantic Web community, Knowledge Graph is well known to be useful for Information Retrieval, due to the use of knowledge graph in Google in 2012, helping its search engine to find the right things and get better summaries. Recently, there is an increase interests of knowledge graph in the Information Retrieval community too; e.g., from about 4 knowledge graph related papers accepted at SIGIR 2019 to about 10 at SIGIR 2020. Indeed, modern Information Retrieval systems can benefit from knowledge graph in many different ways. On the other hand, information retrieval can be useful for knowledge graph related tasks too.



Specific topics for this special issue include but are not limited to:



1. IR over KG




2. KG for IR




3. Application of KG+IR Methods



4. Evaluation of KG+IR Systems



For this special issue, we are seeking two types of papers:

Submission guidelines



The Journal of Web Semantics solicits original scientific contributions of high quality. Following the overall mission of the journal, we emphasize the publication of papers that combine theories, methods and experiments from different subject areas in order to deliver innovative semantic methods and applications. The publication of large-scale experiments and their analysis is also encouraged to clearly illustrate scenarios and methods that introduce semantics into existing Web interfaces, contents and services.



Submission of your manuscript is welcome provided that it, or any translation of it, has not been copyrighted or published and is not being submitted for publication elsewhere. Manuscripts should be prepared for publication in accordance with instructions given in the JWS guide for authors. The submission and review process will be carried out using Elsevier's Web-based Editorial Manager (EM) system. Please state the name of the SI in your cover letter and, at the time of submission, please select “VSI: KGIR” when reaching the Article Type selection.



Upon acceptance of an article, the author(s) will be asked to transfer copyright of the article to the publisher. This transfer will ensure the widest possible dissemination of information. Elsevier's liberal preprint policy permits authors and their institutions to host preprints on their web sites. Preprints of the articles will be made freely accessible via JWS First Look. Final copies of accepted publications will appear in print and at Elsevier's archival online server.
