  • Natural Language Processing for Digital Transformation of Unstructured Text

    Life science organizations are embracing the digital revolution, but digital transformation demands data transformation, and this includes developing strategies to access information buried in unstructured text. Many top pharma and healthcare organizations are using the power of Natural Language Processing (NLP) to transform unstructured text into actionable structured data that can be rapidly visualized and analyzed, for decision support from bench to bedside. In this webinar, we will present use cases from pharma, including effective text mining of scientific abstracts and full text papers for rare disease insights.

  • Building Bridges to Knowledge: From the Minds of Content Creators to the Minds of Users


    Digital transformation isn’t a switch but an evolutionary, incremental process, a journey shaped both by strategic goals and customer need and demand. It’s precisely that customer demand that SAGE Publishing responded to when they developed and launched their SAGE Video series.

    Listen to a recording of this session with Kiren Shoman (Editorial Director, SAGE Publishing) for a discussion on the evolutionary nature of digital transformation in academic publishing, staying true to SAGE’s mission, and how technology plays a supporting role in helping SAGE transfer ideas from the minds of the content creators to the minds of users. Kiren also highlights their work in developing their SAGE Video portfolio to the market alongside textbooks to support diverse research and learning needs of students and researchers across disciplines, course levels and geographical location.

  • Get Smart About “Plan S” With Rob Johnson

    “Plan S” was announced in early September (2018) and now everyone in scholarly publishing is talking about it.

    An initiative of 11 European national research funding organizations, “Plan S” puts pressure on Open Access publishing business models by capping article fees, ending embargoes and withdrawing support for “hybrid” OA journals.

    Register to listen to a webinar featuring OA expert Rob Johnson of the UK’s Research Consulting to get all the details and the insights you’ll need about “Plan S.”

    The “S” in “Plan S” can stand for “science, speed, solution, shock,” says Robert-Jan Smits, the European Commission’s OA special envoy. But you can make it stand for “Smart.”

  • Getting on the Road to Intelligent Content: No Time Like the Present

    Content is a publisher’s most valuable asset; it sits at the core of all business and it’s what makes an organization unique. To maximize the lifetime value of content and meet the evolving needs of customers, publishers need to be able to quickly find, reuse and repackage content. But doing so requires a change in mindset from a traditional print-based workflow to a ‘digital-first’ workflow where content is produced free of format and can be easily repurposed, reused and distributed across all publishing channels.

  • Using Music at Work – Balancing Creativity and Compliance

    Your company is a creative powerhouse. Setting aside formal titles and departments, your employees are creators, producers and publishers of content. And they don’t just reside in your marketing and corporate communications departments, they’re spread out across the org chart developing presentations, videos, web content to help motivate and train employees, engage with customers and prospects, recruit new talent and build your company’s brand. They rely on external content to get the job done and increasingly that means using music sourced from the web.

    For legal counsel, fielding one-off employee requests for this content can be time-consuming and often leads to an answer of “No” which can be frustrating for all parties. Of greater concern are those employees that are unaware of the licensing issues associated with using music in presentations and videos.

    Listen to business, technology, entertainment, and licensing lawyer Joy Butler as she discusses:

    • The use of music in the workplace
    • The different types of music licenses
    • The copyright implications
    • How in-house counsel can minimize risk while enabling employees to express their creativity.
