Semantic solution for ASM journals

leave a comment »

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”.

Semantic analysis for scientific content

leave a comment »

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”.

Semantic search for Publisher’s platforms

leave a comment »

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

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.
