Semantic Structures for Scientific Writing

  title={Semantic Structures for Scientific Writing},
  author={Anita de Waard},
However, the scientific article has remained stubbornly resistant to renewal. Text mining and information extraction are methods specifically developed to find relevant information in unstructured texts and encode the information in a structured form, like a database record (Couto, 2003). In theory, text mining is the perfect solution to transforming factual knowledge from publications into database entries. However, automatically identifying concepts such as genes and proteins poses many…

Enhancing documents with annotations and machine-readable structured information using Notate

Notate is a web based system that enables authors and readers to layer structured annotations on top of documents so that the resulting combination can be reliably processed automatically while maintaining the integrity of the original source and the provenance of all annotations.

This commentary proposes to make semantic tagging an integral process to electronic publishing by developing tools and technologies that retrospectively extract the correct information from text, which is usually full of ambiguities.

Metadata in Science Publishing

An attempt to classify metadata according to type and use is discussed and it is shown that all issues that pertain to information objects alsoPertain to metadata.

Improving Information Extraction through Biological Correlation

A new method for improving the efficiency of information extraction systems applied to biological literature, using the correlation between structural and functional classifications of gene products, and a semantic similarity measure in GO, a biological ontology is presented.

The use of relational databases for electronic and conventional scientific publishing

In an attempt to integrate traditional scientific publishing and new electronic possibilities for storage, retrieval and dis semination, a model based on a General Mark-up Language approach is proposed which enables the user to search for literature prior to publication.

The electronic information transfer of the future will be, in essence, a transfer of well‐defined, cognitive information modules, and the first steps towards a new heuristic model for such scientific information transfer are outlined.

Comprehension: A Paradigm for Cognition

This work proposes a new model of comprehension processes: the construction-integration model, which combines the role of working memory, Cognition and representation, and Propositional representations.

As we may think

The Director of the Office of Scientific Research and Development, Dr. Vannevar Bush holds up an incentive for scientists when the fighting has ceased, and urges that men of science should then turn to the massive task of making more accessible the authors' bewildering store of knowledge.

The death of biomedical journals

It is believed that biomedical journals as the authors know them will become extinct in the next few years as the result of the development and information technology explosion that will completely transform the exchange of information in the biomedical community.
