Abstract: Ontology provide a structured way of describing knowledge. Ontology’s are usually repositories of concepts and relations between them, so using them in information retrieval seems to be a reasonable goal. The main objective in this report is to provide efficient means to move from keyword-based to concept-based information retrieval utilizing ontology’s for conceptual definitions . In this paper, we present the skeleton of such an IR system which works on a collection of domain specific documents and exploits the use of a domain specific ontology to improve the overall number of relevant documents retrieved. In this system, a user enters a query from which the meaningful concepts are extracted; using these concepts and domain ontology, query expansion is performed. We propose a system that matches the query terms in the ontology/schema graph and exploits the surrounding knowledge to derive an enhanced query. The enhanced query is given to the underlying basic keyword search system LUCENE . In this approach we try to make use of more ontological Knowledge than IS-A and HAS-A relationships and synonyms for information retrieval.
