Public Library of Science Thesaurus, Year One

Rachel Drysdale joined the Public Library of Science (PLoS) as a Taxonomy Manager in 2012 after her initial work as a consulting editor for PLOS ONE. Rachel discusses the process of building and integrating the new PLoS thesaurus into their journals workflow and publication platform in this 2014 Data Harmony User Group meeting (DHUG) session.

From constructing the thesaurus to creating channels for feedback and updates, through building new current awareness and discovery tools to gathering data for article level metrics and web site analytics, follow their progress through to today’s PLoS websites and services.
