Wiley-Knode partnership puts collaboration at the center of the research experience

(8 January 2014) John Wiley & Sons, Inc., today announced a new partnership with startup technology company Knode to provide customized research expertise portals to learned societies and other academic organizations worldwide.

Designed to foster innovation and collaboration, Knode’s expertise profiling system compiles a “research signature” for users based on their publication history, patents, clinical trials and grants. The resulting profile forms part of a growing ecosystem of research expertise.

Wiley’s cloud-based portal, powered by Knode technology, is populated with more than 20 million documents and millions of expert profiles. Users can search by expertise, name or affiliation, and custom filters allow the results to be tuned according to specific criteria, for example to identify key opinion leaders or rising stars in a particular discipline.

Researchers are using Knode to find experts, identify and connect with collaborators, and promote their expertise to the world. For society executives and institutional research managers, custom analytics provide aggregated views of research expertise and output.
