Project Prospect is a project running across all of the RSC journals to enhance the online research articles. By identifying the compounds and subject terms it will be easier for users to find the articles that are most relevant to them as well as providing downloadable information about compounds.RSC editors will be annotating compounds concepts and data within the articles and linking these to additional electronic resources such as biological databases. This will transform the free text within an article to add new ways of identifying retrieving and presenting the information within RSC publications. How is this done? Text mining is used to attach structural information (InChI SMILES and CML) to chemical names especially chemical names which have never been seen before and extensions handle terms defined in the Gold Book and ontology entries. The text mining is reviewed by our skilled Technical Editors before publication.
