BioOne and OpenAIRE announce strategic text mining agreement

Partnership Maximizes Access to and Effectiveness of Bioscience Research

(Washington, DC, 26 March  2013) BioOne, the global source for leading edge bioscience research have announced a new collaborative agreement with OpenAIRE. BioOne will make its entire collection of publications, 176 titles from 132 publishers, available to OpenAIRE for text mining. This partnership demonstrates BioOne’s commitment to maximizing access to critical bioscience research.

OpenAIRE makes peer-reviewed, European Commission and European Research Council-funded output – articles, papers and other research, as well as corresponding datasets fully accessible and searchable through a single interface. Providing links to BioOne through the OpenAIRE platform will increase visibility and exposure for its publications.

“We are pleased to announce our collaboration with OpenAIRE, which will cover the current BioOne corpus, with the aim of identifying associations between BioOne and scientific publications from European funding programs,” said Susan Skomal, BioOne President/CEO. “OpenAIRE will support us in maximizing access to our publications while enriching the research experience.”

“With this collaboration, we aim to add value to the process of publishing and discovery,” said Norbert Lossau, Scientific Coordinator of OpenAIRE, “namely making the output and impact of public funding programs more visible, as we enhance OpenAIRE to become a knowledge infrastructure, building a bridge between publication and research data infrastructures.”

OpenAIRE (www.openaire.eu), currently funded through the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Program (FP7) project OpenAIREplus, is an initiative that operates an information infrastructure and support network for publications linking funding information and research data.
