The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) has selected Access Innovations as to enhance the discoverability of journal content on the HighWire platform and across the AACR organisation. Access Innovations' semantic tagging and indexing tools will enable AACR readers and members to make connections between and among related information currently residing in disparate websites.

'We are thrilled to be working with Access Innovations to develop an AACR taxonomy that can be applied to our content, and with HighWire Press to allow us to present related articles across our journals,' said Diane Scott-Lichter, publisher of the AACR suite of journals. 'We expect to expand these efforts to include semantic tagging of other AACR information such as meetings, workshops, conferences, grants, job postings, podcasts, and working groups as a second phase to this project. Making links between related items will drive increased targeted serendipity, providing improved access to the critical information users need.'
