The Thesaurus for the Social Sciences (TheSoz) is a Linked Dataset in SKOS format, which serves as a crucial instrument for information retrieval based on e.g. document indexing or search term recommendation. Thesauri and similar controlled vocabularies build a linking bridge for datasets from the Linked Open Data cloud. In this article the conversion(More)
Interactive query expansion can assist users during their query formulation process. We conducted a user study with over 4,000 unique visitors and four different design approaches for a search term suggestion service. As a basis for our evaluation we have implemented services which use three different vocabularies: (1) user search terms, (2) terms from a(More)
Various best practices and principles are provided to guide an ontology engineer when modeling Linked Data. The choice of appropriate vocabularies is one essential aspect in the guidelines, as it leads to better interpretation, querying, and consumption of the data by Linked Data applications and users. In this paper, we propose LOVER: a novel approach to(More)

In this paper, we present our contribution to the Linked Data Mining Challenge 2015. Our approach predicts the review class of movies using external data from the Open Movie Database API (OMDb-API). We select specific features, such as movie ratings and box office, that are very likely to describe the quality of a movie. With RapidMiner we utilize these(More)
At the very beginning of compiling a bibliography, usually only basic information, such as title, authors and publication date of an item are known. In order to gather additional information about a specific item, one typically has to search the library catalog or use a web search engine. This look-up procedure implies a manual effort for every single item(More)
Deciding which vocabulary terms to use when modeling data as Linked Open Data (LOD) is far from trivial. Choosing too general vocabulary terms, or terms from vocabularies that are not used by other LOD datasets, is likely to lead to a data representation, which will be harder to understand by humans and to be consumed by Linked data applications. In this(More)
We present ELLIS, a demo to browse the Linked Data cloud on the level of induced schema patterns. To this end, we define schema-level patterns of RDF types and properties to identify how entities described by type sets are connected by property sets. We show that schema-level patterns can be aggregated and extracted from large Linked Data sets using(More)
In recent years, Linked Open Data (LOD) has matured and gained acceptance across various communities and domains. Large potential of Linked Data technologies is seen for an application in scientific disciplines. In this article, we present use cases and applications for an application of Linked Data in the social sciences. They focus on (a) interlinking(More)
