TEMIS, which provides semantic content enrichment products, has signed a licence and services agreement with IOP Publishing (IOP). This is part of IOP’s goal to provide customers with faster access to the most relevant research.

TEMIS' Luxid product performs automated entity extraction and content recommendation through related documents linking, allowing users to discover the content most related to their research interests.

The new arrangement will include developing a Skill Cartridge using a new thesaurus developed from IOP’s physical sciences content. Skill Cartridges are domain-specific modules that extract metadata from text. The new cartridge will provide Luxid with the scientific vocabulary for the semantic enrichment of content in the physical sciences, to help ensure that the correct terms are identified and that specialist semantics are supported.

'Luxid provides us with an impressive range of tools and capabilities that are helping us to enrich our content and build new services that will benefit everyone who uses our IOPscience platform,' said Graham McCann, head of product management and innovation at IOP.
