The Project

Springer and TEMIS Extend their Collaboration on Semantic Analysis of Scientific Content


Springer and TEMIS have a long and successful track-record of joint work aimed at facilitating information access on the SpringerLink portal by offering intuitive navigational tools to customers searching for the scientific content most relevant to their topics of interest. At the core of this partnership, TEMIS's flagship Luxid® Content Enrichment Platform leverages a sophisticated combination of linguistic and statistical methods to calculate semantic relatedness among the millions of publications accessible on SpringerLink. This enables the automatic recommendation for each available article or book chapter of a selection of highly-relevant, semantically-related documents, without requiring specific editorial efforts.


The goal of the recent extension of the Springer-TEMIS partnership is to generalize this approach to link not only documents to each other, but also to concepts originating from structured domain-specific vocabularies and to key topics derived from the documents' content. 


"At Springer, we are always working on making our content findable in a better and more efficient way. With Semantic Linking, we can offer our users powerful tools of discovery that make it so much easier to find relevant content. We are happy to extend our successful cooperation with TEMIS and start our new project, which will create a rich web of connectivity between all content items on SpringerLink."

Dr. Thomas Mager, Executive Vice President Publishing Product Development, Springer
