A published paper can have a much wider influence if it is prepared in a machine-readable format. The objective of this course is to give participants the practical expertise they need to enhance biomedical papers with a semantic layer, including detailed tagging of specific terms such as chemical elements and proteins.

The course will explore how publishers of the future will enable literature-based discovery (LBD) with the help of the sci.AI system. Participants will learn to use the structured format in the publishing process and to link to the global knowledge network to enable discovery.

The course will go through the practices of:

  • Automatically adding a semantic layer to a publication.

  • Validation of the semantic layer by the authors and submission to a journal.

  • Improving the peer-review process through semantic preprints.

  • Generating publications based on the Resource Description Framework (RDF) and incorporating them into the editorial process.

  • Visualizing hints and interactions in a paper.

  • Increasing the visibility of a research paper and linking it to the global knowledge graph.

The course will cover both Open Access (OA) papers and publications behind a paywall.

Proposed level: Participants should be aware of the scientific editorial process and the concept of the Semantic Web.

Limits on participation: None.

Intended audience: Members of the editorial and innovation teams of biomedical publishers, text-mining specialists, experts involved in annotating research results in biomedicine, librarians.
