Copyright Clearance Center Announces Enhancements to RightFind® XML for Mining

Danvers, Mass. – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), creating global licensing and content solutions that make copyright work, announces enhancements to its cloud-based RightFind® XML for Mining software solution, which empowers organizations using text mining to glean important insights from vast amounts of scientific, technical, and medical (STM) content. RightFind XML for Mining allows customers to make discoveries and connections available only in full text by providing XML-formatted subscribed content and enabling discovery and purchase of articles that fall outside company subscriptions, offering the most complete article collection for text mining.

This release includes several major product enhancements, that:

– Deliver powerful new search functionality – Control precision and recall by specifying whether query terms should be expanded with synonyms, and requiring exact phrases or alphanumeric strings. Also, support has been enhanced for Medical Subject Headings (MeSH), making these queries easier and shorter for users.

– Enable access to new content – Access MEDLINE citation records where abstract or full-text content is missing by specifying whether to include these records in project results.

– Show comprehensive usage data – View XML usage by journal title and subscription status, and download a usage report for the entire organization.

– Provide new metadata reports – Review titles, journals, authors, publication dates, and other metadata for articles in specific projects.

“Life sciences companies are relying on text mining to drive their research and development efforts now more than ever,” said Lauren Tulloch, Senior Director, Corporate Products and Services, CCC. “We continue to work closely with customers worldwide to solve the content quality and licensing challenges that impede these workflows to accelerate scientific research.”

XML for Mining is built on CCC’s RightFind® platform, which helps customers access, share and manage content anytime, anywhere, while respecting copyright. Colleagues can use a single platform to connect instantly to full-text articles from subscriptions, Open Access channels, local holdings, and document delivery.
