Semantico to Redesign Access Science for McGraw-Hill Professional

Semantico, suppliers of digital publishing solutions to the scholarly and professional market, announced it has been selected by McGraw-Hill Professional, to deliver a redesign of its AccessScience content platform. McGraw-Hill Professional and Semantico have already worked together to successfully design and deliver AccessEngineering. AccessScience information will be delivered using Semantico’s content platform, Scolaris.

Scolaris is engineered to manage the complexities of journals, ebooks, reference works, and dictionaries. Scolaris promotes discoverability by providing intelligent, full-text search that allows for rich taxonomy support for faceted search and browse.

AccessScience is part of a family of Access products in McGraw-Hill Professional’s portfolio, delivering a rich compilation of science and technology information ideal for all university and advanced secondary school students. The new AccessScience platform will continue to offer a wealth of trusted and engaging material from more than 8,000 scientists and specialist sources.

The new platform aims to bring the study of science alive for students with rich, engaging contributions created by noted scientists specifically for AccessScience. The new AccessScience platform will give users access to a wider array of information and will include the very latest technologies including sophisticated search functionality, content enhancements and more.

Laura Friedman, publisher of digital initiatives at McGraw-Hill Professional, said, “Consolidating AccessScience and AccessEngineering onto the same platform will be a real benefit to our customers. Our goal is to offer the best possible experience to our users and this new platform enables us to keep doing just that.”

The project is in the initial planning phases with completion and launch planned for 4Q 2013.
