    Abstract

    Automatic subject indexing is a key technology for digital libraries, however, factors like concept drift hinder its success in practice. Releasing high-quality results into productive retrieval systems may still be possible when thorough quality control is applied, which may support algorithmic improvements and allow to create high precision filters. Since errors and their relevance can depend on characteristics of concepts and their relations, evaluations should take semantic aspects into account. For this reason, we present the prototype of a web-based reviewing tool which especially aims at fostering semantic analysis and visualization, that is, considering relations, properties and semantic categories of concepts, algorithms and reviews. The tool uses techniques of the Semantic Web. Its application is demonstrated by example.
