Beyond its traditional journals programme, it makes high-value scientific information easily accessible through an ever-evolving portfolio of community websites, magazines, conference proceedings and a multitude of electronic services.

The project

IOP Publishing chooses TEMIS' Luxid® Semantic Enrichment Solution

IOP will use Luxid® to provide high quality, tailored content enrichment of its scientific titles.


As part of IOP's long term commitment to providing its customers with faster access to the most relevant research, the company has selected the TEMIS' semantic enrichment solution Luxid®

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

Part of the new arrangement will be to develop a Skill Cartridge® using a new thesaurus developed from IOP's large collection of content in the physical sciences. Skill Cartridges® are domain-specific modules which extract metadata from text and will provide Luxid® with the scientific vocabulary for the semantic enrichment of content in the physical sciences, ensuring that the correct terms are identified and supporting their specialist semantics.

"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. We are delighted to be working with TEMIS in this important initiative."

Graham McCann, Head of Product Management and Innovation, IOP
