“Springer Nature SciGraph: Building a High Quality Semantic Graph for Linked Science”

Presenter: Michele Pasin, PhD. Lead architect, Springer Nature
Time: Tuesday, March 14 | 10:00 – 10:30 GMT

We are pleased to introduce Springer Nature SciGraph, the new Linked Open Data platform aggregating data sources from Springer Nature and key partners from the scholarly domain. The Linked Open Data platform will initially collate information from across the research landscape, such as funders, research projects, conferences, affiliations and publications. Additional data, such as citations, patents, clinical trials and usage numbers will follow over time. This high quality data from trusted and reliable sources provides a rich semantic description of how information is related, as well as enabling innovative visualizations of the scholarly domain. By doing so, Springer Nature SciGraph overcomes former boundaries by relating comprehensive information about the research landscape. It represents a further step in data integration and it will continue to grow organically. This platform will increase the discoverability of high quality data as larger parts of our datasets will be made freely available under a CC BY-NC 4.0 license.

“Maximize the Potential of Your Content: From Metadata Enrichment to Rich Knowledge Graphs”

Presenters: Borislav Popov, Director Business Development UK at Ontotext & Sameer Shariff, Founder & CEO of Impelsys
Time: Thursday, March 16 | 12:15 – 12:45 GMT

In this joint talk Ontotext and Impelsys executives will share some great use cases demonstrating the importance of metadata enrichment for the sake of making content smarter and easily discoverable. In addition we will also share our experience helping Medical Publishers to take full advantage of their interconnected digital content enriched with both proprietary and public datasets.

Mr. Popov and Mr. Shariff will share how to address some of the pain-points in the STM publishing industry and how to leverage iPublishCentral and GraphDB as a powerful solution that can help publishers unlock the full potential of their content and personalise their content delivery.
