CCC provides its publishing partners with usage reports to support decision-making related to text and data mining as part of content-development strategies.
“What customers find compelling about XML for Mining is that it’s a single source for the peer-reviewed scientific content they need, provided in machine-readable form,” said Babis Marmanis, CTO & Vice President, Engineering and Product Development, CCC. “With the addition of Wolters Kluwer, our customers gain access to important medical journals that further improve their ability to identify novel insights across a comprehensive, growing corpus – advancing the progress of scientific research.”
XML for Mining is built on the RightFind platform, CCC’s unique suite of cloud-based workflow solutions that offer immediate, easy access to a full range of Scientific, Technical, and Medical (STM) peer-reviewed journal content. Using RightFind XML for Mining, commercial biomedical researchers create sets of full-text XML articles from millions of articles from thousands of peer-reviewed journals produced by over 40 STM publishers, and import these sets into their preferred third-party text mining software. They can identify articles associated with their research from publications to which they subscribe and also discover articles that fall outside of company subscriptions, providing the most complete article collection for mining.
