RSC Launches Semantic Enrichment of Journal Articles

RSC Publishing announced a new initiative for its journals called Project Prospect ( Electronic RSC journal papers will be enhanced so that their data can be read, indexed, and intelligently searched by machine. RSC said this is a first step toward the "Semantic Web." Readers will be able to click on named compounds and scientific concepts in an electronic journal article to download structures, understand topics, or link through to electronic databases; compounds and ontology terms will be published as RSS feeds enabling automated discovery of relevant research. 

The initiative is said to be the first of its scope from a primary research publisher. Developed together with U.K. academics based at the Unilever Centre for Molecular Informatics and the Computer Laboratory at Cambridge University, the project uses InChIs (the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry's (IUPAC) International Chemical Identifier for compounds); OBO terms (Open Biomedical Ontologies—a hierarchical classification of biomedical terms) such as the Gene Ontology (GO) and the related Sequence Ontology (SO); terms from the IUPAC Gold Book; and CML (chemical markup language—a means to describe molecular information in a structured form). 

RSC Publishing is a not-for-profit publisher wholly owned by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). It is one of the largest publishers of chemical science information in the world, with publishing activity dating from 1841. The RSC intends to develop the project over the coming months and years to increase the amount of structured science in their research articles.
