After Elsevier, Thomson, Springer, Karger, etc., TEMIS has signed a licence to improve the search experience in the American Sociaty of Microbiology’s journals platform.
“To serve its 40,000 members better, ASM is completely revamping its online content offering, and aggregating at a new site all of its authoritative content, including ASM’s journal titles dating back to 1916, a rapidly expanding image library, 240 book titles, its news magazine Microbe, and eventually abstracts of meetings and educational publications.
The organization’s main goal is to enhance access, search, navigation and knowledge discovery at a deeper level of detail–articles, chapters, collections by topic, podcasts and webinars. ASM has identified TEMIS as the best content enrichment solution provider for the scientific publishing community and licensed its platform Luxid® for Content Enrichment and its Biological Entity Relationships Skill Cartridge”.

SpringerLink will be soon enriched by semantic technologies, thanks to a collaboration betwwen Springer and TEMIS.
“At the core of this partnership, TEMIS’s flagship Luxid® Content Enrichment Platform leverages a sophisticated combination of linguistic and statistical methods to calculate semantic relatedness among the millions of publications accessible on SpringerLink.
This enables the automatic recommendation for each available article or book chapter of a selection of highly-relevant, semantically-related documents, without requiring specific editorial efforts”.
Press Release, TEMIS, May 19, 2011
TEMIS and Semantico have announced a strategic partnership.
The powerful text mining technology developed by TEMIS automates the semantic enrichment of unstructured content, dramatically improving its findability and discoverability by search engines and end-users.
In online publications, the resulting richer metadata can be used to:
- Help search engines return more relevant results
- Feed search facets to enable efficient drill-down in search results
- Recommend related or similar documents and knowledge
‘More and more publishers are seeing the benefits of semantic content enrichment to boost the value of their content and help market it in innovative ways,’ said Daniel Mayer, Product Marketing Manager, TEMIS
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 peer–reviewed 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.
