Deep Indexing: An Innovation in Search and Discovery of Scholarly Material

Autor: Jim McGinty, Cambridge Information Group, USA



The mission of secondary publishing is to assist researchers in discovering and linking to relevant scholarly material.  Full-text publishers have long worked with Secondary Publishers to index content and create discipline-wide databases.  “Deep Indexing” of objects in scholarly journal articles is fundamentally altering the nature of Secondary Publishing.

The purpose of this presentation is to present what “Deep Indexing” is all about, and report on the “Deep Indexing” initiative of one secondary publisher.  The presentation will report on end-user reaction to this new concept of indexing scholarly material.
