ABSTRACT

The ultimate goal of classification systems is to provide tools for information management and services through collocation of information objects in similar topics. The National Research Council for Economics, Humanities, and Social Sciences(NRCS) aims to organize the research products from 23 research institutes. To manage and organize the research products effectively, the standard classification system has been developed in conjunction of users' survey and the Business Reference Model(BRM). Although the standard classification system consists of users' perspectives and the aspects of organizational functions, there are limits to apply the system into classification practices. In this study, the proposed hybrid approach is to combine a clustering approach with 1,884 keywords from the titles of research products between 2007 and 2008. The clustering approach is performed in a heuristic way according to the KDC due to the lack of digital full texts of research products. The results of this study proposed a revised standard classification system for NRCS with 16 headings and 90 sub-headings. The revised standard classification system will play an important role in managing research products effectively.
