Scope has developed a taxonomy for PracticeUpdate, an e-portal that offers an array of professional research, information, and education resources. This project was contracted by Elsevier Health Services, with the key business objective being to support more personalization of the user experience for PracticeUpdate. The solution required the development of a taxonomy for a number of medical domains. The taxonomy is essential for optimal filtering of results for the target audience and refining search results.

KnowledgeSpeak brought this interesting information to us in their article, “Scope completes taxonomy development assignment for Elsevier Health Sciences.”

A standards-based taxonomy can help you provide clear order to your data, which enables comprehensive search results. Standards are key to a solid taxonomy and comprehensive indexing.
