Collexis Launches Peer Reviewer Finder Facilitating Grant Funding

Nov 25, 2008

Collexis Holdings Inc., a developer of semantic search and knowledge discovery software, announced the formal launch of the Reviewer Finder product, an application which identifies the best reviewers based on their research profile. By using the proprietary Collexis Fingerprint technology, a submitted grant proposal or submitted scientific manuscript is analyzed and the resulting document Fingerprint is compared against more than 1.8 million expert Fingerprints--simultaneously checking for conflicts of interest based on co-authorship and organizational affiliation. The Reviewer Finder tool is the latest enhancement to the suite of Collexis grant management applications. These services provide funding organizations with portfolio analysis tools to assist in identifying gaps and trends and track the success of their funding by an institution, department, or researcher.
