Abstract: In this paper we propose a semantic relatedness measure between scientific concepts, using Wikipedia as an hierarchical taxonomy. The devised measure examines the length of Wikipedia category path between two concepts, assigning a weight to each category that corresponds to its depth in the hierarchy. This procedure was extended to measure the relatedness between two distinct concept sets (herein referred to as entities), where the amount of shared nodes in the paths computed for all possible concept sets is also integrated in a global relatedness measure index.
