(13 Dec 2021) Scholarcy has recently partnered with Science Says to index millions of evidence-based facts from food science research papers, making the latest discoveries in this field more accessible to a broad community of readers.
Scholarcy’s knowledge extraction technology identifies the important facts, claims and findings from research papers and presents these as easy-to-read, bite-sized synopses. It is relied on by readers worldwide, from students and researchers to journalists, other professionals and lay readers, to get accessible, evidence-based overviews of scientific discoveries and developments.
“Science Says food science facts provides reliable, wide-ranging food science information on topics ranging from which food products benefit from adding lemon extract, to whether the sous-vide cooking technique increases umami molecules in beef. All of the information in Science Says comes directly from peer-reviewed scientific research. And if you need to know more, you can connect directly with a food scientist from our community of experts”, said Beatrice Zatorska, CEO of Science Says.
Speaking about the partnership with Science Says, Phil Gooch, CEO and Founder of Scholarcy said: “It’s not only those in an academic setting that need to access, read, and understand primary research literature. The rise of misinformation has made it harder to differentiate between material that’s evidence-based, and that which isn’t. This means easy access to peer-reviewed research has never been more important. By partnering with Science Says to make the key facts, claims and findings available as easy-to-digest snippets for an audience of professionals outside academia, we believe we can get reliable, peer-reviewed research into the hands of a growing readership.”
