Press release from: Scope e-Knowledge Center



Scope e-Knowledge Center (Scope), a leading provider of content enhancement and knowledge services, publisher of Knowledgespeak, and a Quatrro Global Services company, has completed an assignment for Elsevier Health Sciences (Elsevier) to develop a taxonomy for PracticeUpdate, an e-portal that offers an array of professional research, information and education resources.

Elsevier’s key business objective was to support more personalization of the user experience for PracticeUpdate. The solution Scope and Elsevier envisioned required the development of a taxonomy for a number of medical domains. The taxonomy is essential for optimal filtering of results for the target audience and refining search results.

Scope’s team of medical content specialists not only developed the tiered taxonomy, but also created documentation of the simulated tagging process, using sample content, to train Elsevier’s CMS users and to establish best practices. Scope, in this assignment, reviewed content in a variety of medical domains, including Oncology, Cardiology, Urology, Eye Care, Primary Care, and Dermatology.

Scope’s smart content solution, diSCOverTM, enables the development of domain-specific knowledge frameworks in the form of controlled vocabularies – Taxonomies, Thesauri and Ontologies. diSCOver also supports document indexing using a knowledge framework to enable more filtered and targeted search, including cross domain search, and navigation.

Brad Strong, Manager, Online Content & Strategy of Elsevier Health Sciences, commented, “Elsevier sought to enable personalization and rich content discovery in PracticeUpdate; a comprehensive taxonomy was essential to enable precise filtering and to reveal connections between content for our users. Scope’s taxonomy has met our business requirements and we are pleased with Scope’s response to our needs.”

Commenting on this partnership extension, Tram Venkatraman, President of Scope, said, “We are very pleased to have been chosen by Elsevier to deliver such a high-end knowledge service offering. We leveraged our medical subject matter experts and our significant experience of handling controlled vocabulary development and maintenance assignments in a variety of topical areas in the past.”

“It gives us immense pleasure to be a knowledge partner for Elsevier,” said M.A. Eswaran, Senior Vice President of Scope. He further added, “With Scope’s technology-enabled diSCOver solution, publishers and other information providers can enhance the discoverability of and search precision for their content.”
