Between two worlds: harmonizing automated and manual term labelling

In the era of enormous information production human capabilities have reached their limits. The need for automatic information processing which would not be incommensurate to human sophistication seems to be more than imperative. Information scientists have focused on the development of techniques and processes that would assist human contribution while improve, or at least guarantee, information quality. Automatic indexing techniques may lay on various approaches offering different results in information retrieval. In this paper, we introduce an automated methodology for subject analysis, including both the determination of the aboutness of the documents and the translation of the related concepts to system terms. Focusing on a corpus consisting of articles related to the Digital Library Evaluation domain, topic modeling algorithms are utilized for the aboutness of the documents, while the context of the words in topics, as captured by Word Embeddings, are used for the translation of the extracted topics to EuroVoc concepts.
