  • 1. "How semantic technology enhances the productivity ofscientific researchers." Darrell W. Gunter Collexis an Elsevier CompanyAugust 5, 2010

2. Our Agenda For Today The Challenges of Scientific Research The Collexis Technology Case Studies Professional Networks Institutional Networks Johns Hopkins & Asklepios Managing the Peer Review ProcessSummation 3. The Facts 90 100 hours to write an articleResearchers 2 3 Peer Review 3 6 hrs Articles 154 vs. 83 # pages/article 12.4 vs.Journal Growth 7.4 Total pages 2,216 vs. 820 23,000 Jnls / 90% electronic /Articles 800K+The Author is under great pressure!1,2,3 4.

Collexis Knowledge Engine 7.0 Modular NLP workbench processing and analyzing of text documents Retrieval and aggregation engine serving the application layer 7.

Explore instead of Searching! 9. Creating expert profiles from documents using semantic technologies Document fingerprints aggregated to expert profiles! 10. BiomedExperts more than 300,000+ registered users Prepopulated network based on PubMed 1.8 million precalculated experts More than 24 million co-author relations between them Representing over 3,500 institutions From 190 countries Growing each day between 500 and 1000 users BME data used in other applications 11. Co-author based networks 12. Geographical mapping of the co-author network 13. Johns Hopkins: The Issue! Connecting Experts Fall retreat: Main issue how do they take advantage of the universitys expertise and build collaboration First solution Repurpose a parking lot to be a coffee shop for the JH community to grab a cup of Joe and find new collaborators. Outcome Great coffee, great conversation but collaboration did not take off. The Collexis Solution Expert Institutional Dashboard! 14. Same Application for the NIH 15. AsklepiosFacts and Figures Asklepios - Europes largest health care provider 500.000 patients for inpatient care per year, 95 hospitals, 21.000 beds 34.500 employees Asklepios owns medical nursing and allied health schools Home care programs and residential care programs Asklepios International Pacific Health System California Greece, Athens Medical Center University hospital in Shanghai: Joint Venture with Siemens and Tongji University 16. Why Knowledge Management? Guide WorkflowsOptimize Workflows Distribute (e.g. Care Plans, Expert-(e.g. Avoid interruptionsExpert Knowledge Task Context Allocation)caused by knowledge search, (across multiple locations, retrieval, and application)time zones, medicalconditions) Stimulate newHelp Asklepios to know Knowledge Acquisition Usagewhat Asklepios knowsModels 17. Use Case 1 Expert profiles Patient, male, age of 62, needs a knee joint prosthesis due to Rheumatoid Arthritis Where is the best place to get it? Criteria which will be taken into account: Geographical aspects Recommendation of his GP Publicly available information - mostly via Internet Strongest competitors: university hospitals (within the region) 18. Asklepios Research Profiles 19. Expert Profile of Prof. Grifka 20. Make Internal Expertise available! 21. Provide a single point of search for all relevant content from publishers! Link internal expertise /experience and externalknowledge sources! 22. Use Case 4 - External Resources and Internal Experience Use Case 4 - External Resources and Internal Experience Patient with lung cancer and reduced renal function Decision in chemotherapeutic drug is pending Preferred choice: Cisplatin as chemotherapeutic agent Open questions: can Cisplatin be used which has nephrotoxicity as a side effect? 23. Asklepios Intelligent Digital Library Search - Cisplatin shows the relevant publications from Springer, Elsevier, Thieme, OVID and other publishers 24. Link External Knowledge and Internal Expertise Opening an journal articleshows immediately similar publications colleagues and the namesand expert profiles 25. Key Issues in STM Industry Publishers / Editors Finding the right reviewer Expanding their pool of reviewersInstitutions Determining what grants they should go after Determining who within their organization is best to applyGrant Funding Organizations Analyzing the vast amount of grant applications submitted. Determining who within the organization is best qualified to review the grant application (known and unknown) 26. The Challenge for STM Publishers Receive thousands of manuscripts annually Timely process to conduct the Peer Review Process Timely process to determine who should review it. Important for reviewer to free of conflicts of interest Ethics of review process are paramount 27. Key Benefits Reviewer Finder Fingerprint of manuscript - Clarity Determine the best reviewer Free of conflicts More efficient and effective process Ultimately increases profitability 28. The effectiveness of Semantic TechnologyAggregates the researcher's publications into a Fingerprint of weighted relevant concepts Expert Profiles (individual, institution, dept, country,etc.) Shows co-author relationships (who publishes with whom) Conduct search by key concepts Match content from a variety of sources based on a key concept, researcher, country, etc. Determine expert for peer review, grant application, project, etc. 29.
