Taxonomy learning is an important task for developing successful applications as well as knowledge obtaining, sharing and classification. The manual construction of the domain taxonomies is a time-consuming task. To reduce the time and human effort will build a new taxonomy learning approach named as TaxoFinder. TaxoFinder takes three steps to automatically build the taxonomy. First, it identifies the concepts from a domain corpus. Second, it builds CGraphs where a node represents each of such concepts and an edge represents an association between nodes. Each edge has a weight indicating the associative strength between two nodes. Lastly TaxoFinder derives the taxonomy from the graph using analytic graph algorithm. The main aim of TaxoFinder is to develop the taxonomy in such a way that it covers the overall maximum associative strengths among the concepts in the graph to build the taxonomy. In this evaluation, compare TaxoFinder with existing subsumption method and show that TaxoFinder is an effective approach and give a better result than subsumption method.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
