Wiley Selects TEMIS for Semantic Big Data Initiative
John Wiley & Sons, Inc. announced that it signed a major license and services agreement with TEMIS, the provider of Semantic Content Enrichment solutions. Wiley will use TEMIS’s 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 where 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 [Scientific, Technical, Medical, and Scholarly] research, and this partnership offers researchers new tools for using this knowledge.”
In addition to indexing Wiley's massive 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.
Luxid automates the semantic enrichment of unstructured content, producing metadata that boosts the relevance of search engines and enables powerful content navigation features such as facets, similar document recommendations, and semantic links to structured knowledge that enhance the end-user experience on online portals and drive increased usage. Semantic metadata can also be used to efficiently develop new products such as specialized topical collections and knowledgebases for additional revenue streams.
