Systematic Literature Reviews aim at investigating current approaches to conclude a research gap or determine a futuristic approach. They represent a significant part of a research activity, from which new concepts stem. However, with the massive availability of publications at a rapid growing rate, especially digitally, it becomes challenging to efficiently screen and assess relevant publications. Another challenge is the continuous assessment of related work over a long period of time and the

Knowledge graphs model entities in a connected manner and enable new insights using different reasoning and analysis methods. The objective of this work is to present an approach to partially automate the conduction of a Systematic Literature Review as well as classify and visualize the results as a knowledge graph. The designed software prototype was used for the conduction of a review on context-awareness in automation systems with considerably accurate results compared to a manual conduction.
