Elsevier has bought Collexis Holdings, which develops semantic technology and knowledge discovery software, including professional networking sites such as BiomedExperts.com. The combination of Elsevier’s content with Collexis’ semantic technology will provide institutions and researchers new ways to collaborate, showcase accomplishments and improve grant related workflow efficiencies, say the companies.

'By combining Collexis’ solutions that address several PPF pain points across our customer’s collaboration, funding and strategic planning initiatives with SciVal, we’ve created a unique set of solutions that enable Universities and Government agencies to improve research outcomes,' said Jay Katzen, managing director of Elsevier Science and Technology.

Collexis is headquartered in Columbia, South Carolina with operations in Cologne, Germany and Valparaiso, Chile. The acquisition is effective immediately and terms of the agreement are not being disclosed.
