Elsevier Acquires Collexis

I love getting my news from Facebook. Darell Gunter posted about the acquisition in his status update. But the actual press release about the acquisition is here. Collexis is a “leading developer of semantic technology and knowledge discovery software for research and development institutions.” Products include Expert Profiler, Reviewer Finder, BiomedExperts.com (for professional networking) and the Collexis Knowledge Engine. Darell is a frequent speaker at Information Today conferences.

Tripped Up By Acronyms

OK, this made me laugh. So I thought I’d share. The subject line of an email from a PR firm that just hit my inbox was "AACR Implements Collexis’ Reviewer Finder and Journal Dashboard." How, I wondered, could the Anglo American Cataloging Rules implement something from Collexis? Much as I admire Collexis and their technology, I just couldn’t put cataloging rules in the context of finding peer reviewers for academic, scientific and professional journals.

It helps to read the full text of press releases, not just the subject line. The AACR referred to here is the American Association for Cancer Research.

When I see him in Scottsdale (at Buying & Selling eContent), I’ll have to ask Darrell Gunter, Collexis EVP/CMO, if he’s ever tried using his product to review cataloging rules.
