IJKEDM publishes theoretical and practical research development on knowledge engineering and data mining. The journal is devoted to techniques and skills used for knowledgebase systems or intelligent applications development, including all areas of data architecture, data integration and data exchange, data mining, knowledge acquisition, representation, dissemination, codification and discovery techniques, and their technologies. It also focuses on their applications and case studies in industrial, medical and business sectors.


 Topics covered include

  • Ontology engineering
  • Knowledge representation techniques
  • Knowledge retrieval
  • Text mining
  • Knowledge-based/rule-based/case-based/expert system design
  • Knowledge acquisition, dissemination, discovery methodologies and technologies
  • Algorithms for data mining
  • Data models
  • Database design and architecture
  • Intelligent system design
  • Data integration and exchange
  • Data security and data integrity
  • Database administration and maintenance issues
  • Applications and case studies

More on this journal...

The objectives of IJKEDM are to establish an effective channel of communication between managers, users, knowledge engineers, IT professionals, medical informaticians, academic and research institutions and persons concerned with the development knowledgebase systems and intelligent applications. It also aims to promote and coordinate developments in the field of knowledge engineering and data mining. IJKEDM aims to highlight theoretical and practical research in data analysis architectures, models, methodologies, techniques and technologies in knowledge engineering and data mining, and their application.


IJKEDM provides a vehicle to help business analysts, knowledge engineers, IT professionals, medical informaticians, academics and researchers to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work. Readers will be able to learn and obtain techniques and skills in knowledge engineering and data mining. Readers will learn future directions and research development in data analysis, data integration and exchange, data mining techniques, knowledge acquisition, representation and discovery in knowledgebase system, and their applications.


IJKEDM is devoted to the publications of high quality papers on theoretical developments and practical applications in knowledge engineering and data mining. The journal publishes original papers, state-of-the-art reviews, technical reports and case studies. Special issues devoted to current issues in knowledge engineering and data mining will occasionally be published.

  • Text mining the presidency


    A new text mining technique has been developed by US researchers. The system works in two stages. Firstly, it uses a statistical tool known as a naive Bayes classifier, a supervised machine-learning algorithm to train for classes. Secondly, it uses k-means analysis, an unsupervised machine-learning algorithm to determine what categories are emerging from the mentions of each class [...]
