Travis Hicks, ASCO

Tasked with helping its 2017 Annual Meeting attendees sort more than 200 sessions by personal interest, ASCO leveraged its taxonomy to produce targeted program recommendations. The Session Recommender leveraged existed profile data supplemented with additional information supplied by the user via a short questionnaire to craft individual taxonomy profiles, which were used to generate recommendations. During this session, Travis will offer an overview of the project and how ASCO intends to use it as the basis for future personalization efforts.

11:30 AM – 12:00 PM    Taxonomy Implementation in the New SPIE Digital Library

Tim Lamkins, SPIE

After fourteen years on third-party platforms, SPIE made the bold move to bring the SPIE Digital Library in-house. One of the main drivers for this was to gain full control of the site and maximize the use of the taxonomy developed with Access Innovations. This presentation will show how SPIE has deployed the taxonomy in our submission and publication systems and discuss the enterprise-wide benefits that the taxonomy is bringing.

2:15 PM – 2:45 PM    Building an LDA topic model using Wikipedia

Ronald Snyder and Sharon Garewal, JSTOR/ITHAKA

Join Ronald Snyder, Director of Research at JSTOR Labs, and Sharon Garewal, Senior Metadata Librarian, Taxonomy Manager as they discuss how they went about creating training data for use in JSTOR’s new Text Analyzer, a tool that allows users to upload a document, have it automatically analyzed, and find relevant content on JSTOR. Using the JSTOR Thesaurus hierarchy of 48,000 terms the team identified and reviewed Wikipedia articles to be used as training data for a topic model using a custom curation tool. The result was a topic model including the most significant terms from the JSTOR Thesaurus (approx. 18,000) trained using curated Wikipedia articles. In this presentation, Sharon and Ron will discuss the process used, share initial findings and areas for future work (including multilingual topic inferencing), and provide a short demo of the curation tool and Text Analyzer app.

3:15 PM – 3:45 PM    Reducing the Human Effort of Filtering Submissions: A PLOS ONE Case Study

Helen Atkins, PLOS

Most scholarly journals see submissions in the hundreds each year; PLOS ONE sees 100-200 submissions daily. And while we have a board of more than 6,000 Academic Editors (AE) who handle these submissions and the peer review process, we employ internal editors to scan all submissions to identify any major problems prior to assigning to AEs.  The internal editors may bring issues to the attention of the AE, work with authors to resolve some issues before proceeding to peer review, or in some cases may desk reject a manuscript.  This scanning task is resource intensive, time consuming, and inconsistently applied.  Over the past several months, we have been working with Access Innovations to develop a series of Data Harmony filters to be applied to incoming manuscript that will provide the internal editors with reports of potentially problematic content, with the goals of 1) reducing the time spent in manual scanning (getting the manuscript to an AE faster) and 2) increasing the consistency of the task overall.

3:45 PM – 4:15 PM    A Taxonomy For All Content

Jane Hiebert- White, Health Affairs

Health Affairs launched a new Web site in October 2017 that fully integrates journal content with a robust daily blog, policy briefs, events, podcasts and more. Each of these content types incorporates the new Health Affairs taxonomy developed with Access Innovations. Goals for the site include enhanced discovery by topic; ability to relate journal and non-journal content; integrated search results; and ability to create new topic-based product offerings. This presentation will review lessons learned on integrating a taxonomy across multiple content types and highlight next steps for continued integration and topic-oriented site enhancement.

11:00 AM – 11:30 AM                        Maintaining a Controlled Vocabulary Over 50 Years in an Evolving Discipline

The First Edition of the APA’s Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms appeared in print in 1974, incorporating the 800 index terms previously developed by in-house staff to describe the content of Psychological Abstracts, and continued to grow and evolve through 11 print versions – last printed in 2007 – into the present electronic search utility. Currently comprised of approximately 6,300 preferred and 3,000 equivalent terms, it is used to index the more than 4.4 million records in the PsycINFO database and numerous related products, and is a definitive reference in the field. Marisa Hughes, Taxonomist in APA’s Office of Publications & Databases, will discuss the factors and issues involved in keeping a controlled vocabulary responsive to current research, nomenclature, and user needs, with an eye toward innovation, in the increasingly interdisciplinary and vital field of psychology.
