Elsevier recently announced preparations to collaborate with the research community in developing an open-access journal covering all disciplines on one platform. The goal is to enable continual experimentation and innovation. This interesting information came to us from Research Information in their article, “Elsevier to launch all-discipline OA journal.”

Reportedly, the plans include improving the end-to-end publishing process and integrating its smart technologies to improve search and discovery. The journal will offer researchers a streamlined, simple, and intuitive publishing platform that connects their research to the relevant communities. The journal is unnamed at this point but will reflect Elsevier’s goal to “provide a home for all sound research.”

Making information findable is the result of good indexing and comprehensive metatagging. Automated indexing is a comprehensive approach to making content findable. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies with integrated indexing rule bases to make their information findable.
