Abstract

This poster presents preliminary findings from a study that explores the research domain in the field of Knowledge Organization (KO) by comparing the publications contributed by academic researchers and library practitioners. We analyzed 914 articles in three representative KO journals using text mining. The preliminary findings reveal the distinct gaps in research topics between the two groups. Academic researchers contributed more to the realm of theories and fundamental concepts while library practitioners were more interested in specific library practices.
