Companies mentioned in this article: Taylor & Francis

WASHINGTON, United States -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- The visibility and discoverability of millions of journal articles will be further enhanced this year, with the announcement that Taylor & Francis is partnering with Sciencescape, the research discovery platform. Full text articles from over 2,200 journals across Taylor & Francis’ behavioural sciences, science, technology, medicine, social sciences and humanities journal lists will be analyzed by Sciencescape, and readers alerted to new papers published in these journals via their Sciencescape subscription.

Using natural language processing and sophisticated content identification algorithms, Sciencescape users are able to keep track of developments in vital scientific research by subscribing to the fields, topics, institutions and historical sets relevant to their research. Based on these selections, their daily updates stream new articles and enable them to see how individual papers fit together in the wider research landscape. Selecting the articles they’re interested in, researchers can then move from Sciencescape and on to the full text of the article on Taylor and Francis Online.

Every Taylor & Francis journal article published since 1997 will now be included in this service, with deep indexing of each and every paper ensuring that researchers will be able to connect together research across the sciences, social sciences, technology, behavioural sciences, medicine and the humanities. Users of Sciencescape will be able to jump from research in a specific area of psychology which mentions a trend in genetics, to the exact article which refers to this trend on Taylor & Francis Online. This deep level indexing across articles will also only increase over time, as re-analysis of the information in Sciencescape develops using the terms inputted by users, ensuring the discoverability of Taylor & Francis articles remains in step with developments in the many research areas their content covers.

Gillian Howcroft, eProducts Director for journals at Taylor & Francis, said of the new partnership,

“Giving researchers tools to quickly filter and match up research to their very specific interests is incredibly valuable and we wanted to be part of that process. Being able to get that reader quickly to the full text article he or she wants on Taylor & Francis Online is where we come in.”

Sam Molyneux, Sciencescape’s co-founder and CEO, said,

"Researchers rely on Sciencescape to keep pace with critical developments in their fields of interest, and to explore the history of research. Taylor & Francis articles are highly respected by the scholarly community, and their inclusion on Sciencescape’s literature discovery platform is an exciting development for both Sciencescape and our users."
