Collexis, an Elsevier business and developer of semantic technology and knowledge discovery software, has launched a community module for its Expert Profiling application. The release of version 3.6 Expert Profiling connects experts across the Collexis community from multiple institutions by research concepts.

The Collexis Expert Profiling community module allows for the identification of an institution's research experts based on their historical publications as well as research experts from other institutions who subscribe to the Collexis Expert Profiling application. Additional features within the Collexis Expert Profiling application include the capability of finding similar experts, searching by key concept and provide the "Scientific Context"; that will display related experts, grants and publications based on the Fingerprint of an individual grant or publication.

Prior to the company's acquisition by Elsevier, the Collexis profiles were based on PubMed data. Now the profiles are derived from the 18,000 peer review journals within Scopus. This is expected to not only strengthen the life science profiles but allow the company to provide expert profiles in all scientific disciplines.
