Presentation Title: 
NanoTate It, a reusable Semantic Web annotation platform for Life Sciences
Description: 
In this poster we present and demonstrate NanoTate. We are applying Semantic Web technology to scholarly communications in order to annotate and enrich scientific content. NanoTate delivers a web-based annotation environment for PDFs where users can combine their own annotations with those from biomedical ontologies. In addition, NanoTate offers several community features, making it possible to share and tweet annotations or post on Facebook and Mendeley; users can choose to disseminate the content of their publications over social networks manually or automatically. Furthermore, NanoTate also delivers a web-based review environment -based on the first draft of the Review Ontology; in essence, we consider reviewing a paper as a specialized type of annotation. All the activity over NaNoTate is exposed as RDF -annotations, text for the PDFs uploaded into the system, social activity, paper reviewing, etc. NaNoTate is built upon several technologies, e.g. hypothes.is, GATE, BioPortal and it is reusing various ontologies, e.g. SPAR, AO and domain ontologies. NaNoTate is fully interoperable with the Open Journal System (OJS), making it possible for those using the OJS to publish fully annotated datasets with minimal effort. As we work with the annotated text, we are delivering a more comprehensive user experience throughout the search-retrieval-interacting with the document workflow. For instance, instead of building queries relaying solely on keywords, we facilitate the construction of queries based on selecting parts of the graph of annotations. Moreover, once users execute a query, they interact with a more comprehensive interface that allows them to conceptually navigate the document. For our paper-review module we use the semantic versioning capabilities provided by our RDF infrastructure -- the Dydra triple store -- to facilitate correlating annotation changes with base document evolution during the review process.
