Scholarly publishing technology provider HighWire has partnered with AI-powered academic search engine, Semantic Scholar to enhance article discovery for researchers. Semantic Scholar is funded by the Allen Institute of Artificial Intelligence (AI2), a non-profit AI research institute whose mission is ‘AI for the Common Good’.
As a free, AI-powered research tool for scientific literature, Semantic Scholar’s mission is to empower scholars to overcome information overload by making it easy to discover and understand the scientific literature most relevant to their work. It utilises methods from data mining, natural language processing, and computer vision to make research more discoverable.
Through the partnership, Semantic Scholar will apply their semantic tools and AI models to HighWire’s publishers’ articles, and index the content and related metadata to make it easier for users to find and understand relevant content.
Publishers will benefit from additional users finding their content via semanticscholar.org, Semantic Scholar’s free website. As with other open discovery services, only the metadata of an article will be freely available via Semantic Scholar. If the user wants to access the full text they will be directed back to the publisher’s website for COUNTER-compliant access to the original articles.
In turn, this new source of article metadata generated by Semantic Scholar will be available to publishers to enhance their own sites.
