New journal paper: Ontologies for finding journalistic angles

A new paper is out in the Software and Systems Modeling (SoSyM) journal: https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10270-020-00801-w . It extends our EMMSAD’2019 paper. Abstract: Journalism relies more and more on information and communication technology (ICT). ICT-based journalistic knowledge platforms continuously harvest potentially news-relevant information from the Internet and make it useful for journalists. Because information about the same… Read More »
