Abstract: In a previous work, we proposed a semantic relatedness measure between scientific concepts, using Wikipedia categories network as an ontology, based on the length of the category path. After observing substantial differences in the arc density of the categories network, across the whole graph, it was concluded that these irregularities in the ontology density may lead to substantial errors in the computation of the semantic relatedness measure. Now we attempt to correct for this bias and improve this measure by adding the notion of ontology density and proposing a new semantic relatedness measure. The proposed measure computes a weighed length of the category path between two concepts in the ontology graph, assigning a different weight to each arc of the path, depending on the ontology density in its region. This procedure has been extended to measure semantic relatedness between entities, an entity being defined as a set of concepts.
