Glossary Construction of Scientific and Technical Term by using Wikipedia


Among numerous encyclopedias, Wikipedia operated by the Wikimedia Foundation is the biggest as a single project among dictionary projects, and employs the concept of user participation to create contents. In this study, we propose an algorithm for building a glossary by using the Wikipedia API. The glossary is built by reflecting the latest trend to extract science and technology terms from the National R&D information, and using collocations of terms to create collocations of terms in order to use them as tags of terms. The glossary of terminology created as described above is used to know the latest trend, and used to create thesauruses of science and technology terms, for example, collocations of keywords in question.
Keywords: Glossaries, Scientific and Technical Information, Wikipedia
