John Wiley & Sons, a publisher serving the global scientific, technical, medical and scholarly (STMS) communities, has signed a major license and services agreement with Temis, the provider of semantic content enrichment solutions.
Wiley will use Temis Luxid Platform to enhance its STMS content, providing more sophisticated search and discovery tools to professional and academic researchers. Wiley will also leverage Luxid to identify similar and related documents promoting greater user engagement with one of the largest scientific archives of its kind.
'In an age when online resources play a central role in new research, it is of paramount importance that users are able to quickly identify and access the content they need,' said Patrik Dyberg, senior vice president and chief technology officer at Wiley.
'Wiley hosts one of the world's broadest and deepest multidisciplinary collection of online resources covering STMS research, and this partnership offers researchers new tools for using this knowledge.'
In addition to indexing Wiley's research archive, Luxid will be used to annotate current and future information sources, including reference works, databases and Wiley's collection of 1,500 journals.
'We are proud to be selected by Wiley to extract tremendous value from their content across products and disciplines and help them deliver actionable knowledge to their customers,' said Guillaume Mazieres, executive vice president, for North America operations at TEMIS. 'Wiley and Temis share a passion for innovation that materialises in this semantic Big Data initiative.'
