John Wiley & Sons selects Scope’s ConSCIse™ for book chapter abstracts and keywords

Press Release   •   Feb 12, 2013 15:27 IST

Scope eKnowledge Center (Scope), a leading provider of content enhancement and knowledge services, is pleased to announce that John Wiley & Sons will partner with Scope to significantly enhance the chapter-level metadata for its frontlist books. ConSCIse™, Scope’s unique content abstraction solution, will be utilized to create abstracts and keywords for Wiley’s Science, Technology, Medicine and Scholarly books.

Scope’s ConSCIse offers publishers and other information providers a unique opportunity to enhance discoverability of content by providing keywords and keyword-rich abstracts/summaries via a semi-automated platform. ConSCIse cost effectively generates abstracts and keywords from professional and scholarly literature, including books, book chapters, journal articles, patents, conference proceedings and clinical summaries. ConSCIse judiciously combines proprietary software in the form of Natural Language Processing (“NLP”) rules and subject matter expert (“SME”) curation. This proprietary technology has been developed based on Scope’s extensive experience and understanding of the common traits of effective abstracts for unstructured documents.

Antonia Seymour, VP and Director STMS Books commented, “Our business objective is to enhance the discoverability of our book chapter content in Wiley Online Library. We need high quality keywords and abstracts for each chapter, but without any delay in the existing online publication schedule. After working with Scope in testing both the production workflow and ConSCIse, Wiley has now implemented Scope’s solution to supplement those abstracts and keywords created by our authors.”

“We appreciate the opportunity to partner with Wiley and deploy ConSCIse to support its keyword and abstract requirements”, said M. A. Eswaran, Scope’s Senior Vice-President. “Scope was happy to work with Wiley to create the abstract and keyword specifications, generate sample abstracts across a wide range of disciplines to ensure quality expectations could be met with no disruption to existing workflows.”
