IOP Publishing Chooses TEMIS' Luxid® Semantic Enrichment Solution

Published: Mar 06, 2012

Bristol, UK & London, UK – March 6th, 2012 – TEMIS, leading provider of Semantic Content Enrichment solutions for the Enterprise, today announced it has signed a license and services agreement with IOP Publishing (IOP), a world leader in electronic publishing for the scientific community.

IOP publishes a range of journals, websites and magazines and hosts over 450,000 articles spanning 135 years back to 1874 on its web platform, IOPscience. The company’s output reflects the growth and interdisciplinary nature of scientific research and application in topics as varied as astronomy, mathematics, bioscience, and of course physics. IOP’s services are used by more than 4000 institutions in over 180 countries.

As part of IOP’s long term commitment to providing its customers with faster access to the most relevant research, the company has selected the TEMIS’ semantic enrichment solution Luxid®. Luxid® performs automated entity extraction and content recommendation through related documents linking, allowing users to discover the content most related to their research interests.

Part of the new arrangement will be to develop a Skill Cartridge® using a new thesaurus developed from IOP’s large collection of content in the physical sciences. Skill Cartridges® are domain-specific modules which extract metadata from text and will provide Luxid® with the scientific vocabulary for the semantic enrichment of content in the physical sciences, ensuring that the correct terms are identified and supporting their specialist semantics.

“Luxid® provides us with an impressive range of tools and capabilities that are helping us to enrich our content and build new services that will benefit everyone who uses our IOPscience platform”, said Graham McCann, Head of Product Management and Innovation, IOP. “We are delighted to be working with TEMIS in this important initiative.”

“IOP Publishing chose Luxid® not only due to its industrial strength and high quality annotation capabilities, but also because they required the ability to customise the enrichment tool to create their own domain-specific annotators, what we call Skill Cartridges®”, said Peter Camilleri, Director - Publishing Solutions, TEMIS. “With its own customised Skill Cartridge®, IOP Publishing will be able to provide domain-specific enrichment of its content thus ensuring IOP Publishing customers receive the most relevant content discovery experience.”
