RSC Prospect in the spotlight


27 November 2007

Since RSC Project Prospect was awarded the 2007 ALPSP/Charlesworth Award for Publishing Innovation, the award-winning technology has been increasingly in the spotlight. 

Speaking at the ICIC meeting in October in Sitges, Debra Banville, Astra Zeneca, Delaware, USA described the challenges of finding the right chemical and biological information from the wealth of available literature.

She was enthusiastic about  RSC Prospect, describing it as 'innovative and evidence of a shifting paradigm in the publishing world.putting focus on a researcher's need to find the "right" information quickly.' 

More recently, Colin Batchelor from the RSC Project Prospect team spoke at the ALPSP Seminar 'Evaluation of New Online Publishing Technology: Back it or Bin it?' 

The speakers - from Nature Publishing, Oxford University Press, Simon Inger Consulting and the British Medical Journal, in addition to Colin - pitched for the support of an audience that included key directors, managers and editors from a number of publishers. 

"RSC Prospect proved to be the favourite technology pitch of the day"
Despite tough competition, Colin left the others in the shade with his pitch on 'The semantic journal' which used RSC Prospect as a case study. 'RSC Prospect proved to be the favourite technology pitch of the day amongst our audience of voters' said Pam Sutherland, chair of the seminar. 

Finally, the spotlight in December turns to Olympia in London, where Richard Kidd will deliver his seminar on RSC Project Prospect at Online Information 2007. A packed audience is expected to learn about 'the application of semantic enrichment in journal publishing' at the ePublishing Solutions Seminars on 6th December.
