Supporting Springer Nature Editors by means of Semantic Technologies

450 views

Published on

The Open University and Springer Nature have been collaborating since 2015 in the development of an array of semantically-enhanced solutions supporting editors in i) classifying proceedings and other editorial products with respect to the relevant research areas and ii) taking informed decisions about their marketing strategy. These solutions include i) the Smart Topic API, which automatically maps keywords associated with published papers to semantically characterized topics, which are drawn from a very large and automatically-generated ontology of Computer Science topics; ii) the Smart Topic Miner, which helps editors to associate scholarly metadata to books; and iii) the Smart Book Recommender, which assists editors in deciding which editorial products should be marketed in a specific venue.

  2. 2. The collaboration The Open University and Springer Nature have been collaborating since 2015 in the development of an array of semantically-enhanced solutions for: 2 • Automatic classification of proceedings and other editorial products. • Automatic selection of the most appropriate books, journals, and proceedings to market at a scientific event.

  10. 10. Business Value - I STM is having a multifaceted impact on the SN workflow: • It halves the time needed for classifying proceedings from 20- 30 to 10-15 minutes. • It produces 80-90% of correct topics very quickly. • It allows also assistant editors to work on the classification of proceedings, distributing the load and reducing costs. • The adoption of a controlled vocabulary makes the process more robust and facilitates the identification of related editorial products. 10
  11. 11. Business Value - II • It is being applied to the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) and other computer science series (LNBIP, CCIS, IFIP- AICT, LNICST). • Since 2016 about 700 proceedings volumes have been classified with the help of STM, and we are planning to use it for up to 800 conference proceedings volume per year. 11
  12. 12. Next Steps • Integrating the STM tool with the SN Linked Open Data portal, which describes Springer Nature conferences http://lod.springer.com/ • Performing a comprehensive evaluation of SBR. • Analysis and enhancement of Springer Nature CS Classification. • Applying these tools to other research fields, e.g., Life Sciences. • Opening up the Computer Science Ontology to the wider scientific community by means of a wiki-like portal. 12
