Access Innovations unveils Author Submit
Access Innovations has released Author Submit, a Data Harmony V. 3.9 application for integration of author-selected subject metadata information into a publishing workflow during the paper submissions or upload process. The company explains Author Submit facilitates the addition of taxonomy terms by the author. With the new module, each author provides subject metadata from the publisher taxonomy to accompany the item they are submitting. During the submission process, Data Harmony’s Machine Aided Indexer (M.A.I.) core application suggests subject terms based on a controlled vocabulary, and the author chooses appropriate terms to describe the content of his or her document, allowing early categorization and selection of peer reviewers and support for trend analysis.
Author Submit helps authors to self-select appropriate metadata assigned to their name and research at the point of submission into the publishing pipeline. Access Innovations says the application can also work as an editorial interface between a semantically enriched controlled vocabulary and potential submissions to the literature corpus; or in editorial review of subject indexing at the point of submission, enabling a robust evolution to a controlled vocabulary (taxonomy or thesaurus) by encouraging timely rule base refinement.
