London, UK; Basel, Switzerland – December 20, 2011 – TEMIS, the leading provider of Semantic Content Enrichment Solutions for the Enterprise, today announced a new contract in STM publishing with S. Karger AG, a long-standing academic publisher of scientific and medical journals and books based in Basel, Switzerland.
Karger has chosen to partner with TEMIS to provide the scientific community with next-generation navigation features within its information portal. Karger is licensing the Luxid® for Content Enrichment Platform as well as its Medical Entity Relationships Skill Cartridge®, a semantic solution specifically designed to mine and enrich medical content.
