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.

The product enhancements allow the user to:

– Discover full-text scientific articles with powerful new search functionality: A new Lucene search capability enables users to build sophisticated queries using any indexed field.

– Share projects with colleagues: Teams of researchers can collaborate to build queries, review results, and ensure the optimal output for downstream text mining activities.

– Access the most recent, up-to-date content: New synchronization architecture provides the latest article versions for users’ text mining projects.

– Make text mining queries with improved cross-publisher normalization: The JATS XML output has been enhanced to include new metadata fields for normalized sections of the full-text article, reducing workflow inefficiencies that plague other methods of acquiring full-text XML content from multiple publishers.

“Life sciences companies increasingly rely on text mining to drive their research and development efforts,” said Lauren Tulloch, Senior Director, Corporate Products and Services, CCC. “We are working closely with customers worldwide to solve the content quality and licensing challenges that impede these workflows, thereby accelerating 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.
