Article on Automatic assignment of UDC codes (IEEE Access)

An interesting article entitled "A Hybrid Approach to Recommending Universal Decimal Classification Codes for Cataloguing in Slovenian Digital Libraries" by M. Borovic, M. Ojstersek and D. Strnad was published in IEEE Access

From the abstract: "In this article we present a hybrid approach to recommending the Universal Decimal Classification (UDC) codes for unclassified documents. By recommending UDC codes to librarians, we can provide the decision support as part of a semi-automatic cataloguing process. As current approaches to recommending UDC codes are scarce and limited to certain fields of expertise, our motivation was to create a hybrid approach which covers all fields of expertise within the UDC hierarchy. The cascade hybrid approach combines the BM25 ranking function with a multi-label classifier based on a BERT (Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers) deep neural network architecture..."
