Knowledge Organization (KO)
Devoted to Concept Theory, Classification, Indexing and Knowledge
Official Quarterly Journal of the International Society for Knowledge
Published by ERGON-Verlag, Würzburg, Germany
Knowledge Organization is an international refereed quarterly journal
that publishes scholarly papers and reports related to all aspects of
knowledge organization, which we define broadly as the conceptual
ordering of knowledge.
Scope of KO: Our journal is devoted to questions of the adequate
structuring and construction of ordering systems, and on the problems
of their use in providing access to information contents of
literature, data, or other objects of scientific interest.
Contributions: (1) clarify theoretical foundations (general ordering
theory, philosophical foundations of knowledge and its artifacts,
theoretical bases of classification, data analysis and reduction);
(2) describe practical operations associated with indexing and
classification, as well as applications of classification systems and
thesauri, manual and machine indexing; (3) trace the history of
knowledge organization; (4) discuss questions of education and
training in classification; and (5) problems of terminology in
general and with respect to special fields.
Aims of KO: Knowledge Organization is a forum for all those
interested in the organization of knowledge on a universal or a
domain-specific scale, using concept-analytical or
concept-synthetical approaches, as well as quantitative and
qualitative methodologies. Knowledge Organization also addresses the
intellectual and automatic compilation and use of classification
systems and thesauri in all fields of knowledge, with special
attention being given to the problems of terminology.
