Press release from: Scope eKnowledge Center



Scope eKnowledge Center (Scope), a leading provider of content enhancement and knowledge services, has launched its author data management solution, AuthEntik, aimed at addressing the author name ambiguity issue for publishers, university/academic institutions, grant funding agencies and publisher consortia.

AuthEntik is a platform-enabled solution that blends author data parsing and extraction technology with the domain knowledge of Subject Matter Experts (SME), to create accurate, normalized, complete databases of author information from published documents. AuthEntik includes automatic author data validation modules to standardize data elements such as city, state and country, using integrated lookup tools; self-learning algorithms using built-in thesauri to implement automatic as well as manual author name standardization. The hallmark of AuthEntik is its disambiguation module, which differentiates unique authors using available data and assigns a unique author identification code.

Tram Venkatraman, President of Scope, commented, “Scope’s AuthEntik has been built on significant experience executing large-scale author data services projects for a number of major players in the global STM information industry. During the last three years, Scope has created 30 million author database records from journal articles, conference proceedings and other documents.”

Using AuthEntik, Scope has tackled the key challenges in author data clean-up and enhancement, including dealing with unstructured data input, a variety of naming conventions, especially those of first name and surname of different countries, and other data variants. To enhance the solution, Scope has incorporated knowledge repositories for standardizing author affiliation data elements including universities, other affiliated organizations, cities, states, provinces and country names.

M. A. Eswaran, Scope’s Senior Vice-President, added, “AuthEntik has the capability to rapidly process voluminous author records and can ensure a high level of accuracy through multiple layers of quality control at each stage of the author database development process. Scope can also provide expert analysis of the results of any disambiguated output generated through automatic algorithms.”
