The semantic approach for tracking scientific publications

Publications in peer-reviewed Scientific Journals are seen as a performance indicator reflecting the productivity of a research-based pharmaceutical company focused on innovation and new therapeutic concepts for unmet medical needs. A new corporate publication tracking system serves Boehringer Ingelheim employees and the Research leadership team as an important benchmark and tracking tool for “Boehringer Ingelheim Papers” published in the global scientific community. Our semantic approach comprises the results of automated literature database alerts and manually curated & enriched data for tracking, storing and visually analysing published articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals, based on semantic analysis of publications coming from Boehringer Ingelheim authors.
