AIP Publishing LLC and Publishing Technology have launched the next generation of IP's Scitation site, serving scientists around the world. Launched on a custom platform developed using Publishing Technology's pub2web hosting solution, AIP Publishing and seven AIP Member Societies are now housing nearly a million articles from 47 journals, as well as conference proceedings, standards, and blogs. It also hosts Physics Today, AIP's flagship magazine.
Content on the new platform is semantically enriched using the Scitation thesaurus of 7,500 terms, which can be searched and browsed across Scitation's publishers and content types. Concept boosting, a search feature of the pub2web platform driven by semantic tagging, means that subject homepages are bumped to the top of search results, directing Scitation users to information hubs for accessing associated content and creating resource collections.
