Ontology Add-in for Word

January 27, 2011

Ontology Add-in for Word
http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/projects/ontology/

Microsoft External Research’s goal with this project is to enable communities who maintain ontologies to more easily experiment and to enhance the experience of authors who use Microsoft Word for content creation, incorporating semantic knowledge into the content. This add-in should simplify the development and validation of ontologies, by making ontologies more accessible to a wide audience of authors and by enabling semantic content to be integrated in the authoring experience, capturing the author’s intent and knowledge at the source, and facilitating downstream discoverability. The goal of the add-in is to assist scientists in writing a manuscript that is easily integrated with existing and pending electronic resources. The major aims of this project are to add semantic information as XML mark-up to the manuscript using ontologies and controlled vocabularies (from the National Center for Biomedical Ontology) and identifiers from major biological databases, and to integrate manuscript content with existing public data repositories. As part of the publishing workflow and archiving process, the terms added by the add-in, providing the semantic information, can be extracted from Word files, as they are stored as custom XML tags as part of the content. The semantic knowledge can then be preserved as the document is converted to other formats, such as HTML or the XML format from the National Library of Medicine, which is commonly used for archiving. The full benefit of semantic-rich content will result from an end-to-end approach to the preservation of semantics and metadata through the publishing pipeline, starting with capturing knowledge from the subject experts, the authors, and enabling this knowledge to be preserved when published, as well as made available to search engines and presented to people consuming the content.

Recommendations on RSS Feeds for Scholarly Publishers

Recommendations on RSS Feeds for Scholarly Publishers
http://oxford.crossref.org/best_practice/rss/

ticTOCs is a JISC-funded project. It has developed a service to enable users to discover, subscribe to, and re-use Table of Contents (TOC) RSS feeds for thousands of journals from a wide range of publishers. The initial phase of the project included analysis of publishers current practices with regard to the provision of RSS TOCs. The analysis revealed a range of issues which may impact on the ability of end users and feed aggregators to effectively utilize feeds. Just because a particular publisher’s feed “looks good” in the major feed readers isn’t enough to make said feed truly usable. RSS feeds are designed to be aggregated. When aggregated, even minor variations in feeds can be greatly distracting and make for an unpleasant user experience. For instance, there is currently wide variation amongst scholarly publishers in the use of the element.
