Little things about Scientitic Watch and Information Professionnals

Networked Content, semantics and Publishers

leave a comment »

According this white paper, Networked  Content is  an  emerging  set  of  technologies  and  practices  that  holds  the  potential  not  only  to  transform  the  way  content  is  managed,  distributed  and  accessed,  for  the  joint  benefit  of  Publishers  and  their  Audiences,  but  also  to  profoundly  remodel  the  Information  Industry  in  its  next  stage  of  growth.

From  the  perspective  of  Publishers,  competition  for  the  user’s  attention  has  intensified  during  the  past  10  years.    The  Internet  has  lowered  the  barriers  to  entry  and  also  made  it  easy  for  custmers  to  switch  their  allegiance.  Open  Access  initiatives  (most  notably  in  the  Scientific,  Medical  and  Legal  domains  up  to  now),  while    perhaps  not  a  direct  threat  to  subscription  revenues,  nonetheless  today  represent  a  significant  20%  of  peerreviewed  scholarly  journal  articles  in  select  fields.

These  and  other  reasons  have  motivated  Publishers  to    differentiate  and  add  value  to  their  information  products  beyond  that  offered  by  the  raw  content  itself  by  investing in    new  options  for  managing,  packaging  and  distributing  them.
