Press Release: Yewno [December 20, 2016]

Yewno announces partnerships with top publishers to produce additional content discoverable through Yewno platform

December 20, 2016 -- Redwood City, CA. Yewno, a provider of a new inference engine that mimics the human brain and increases knowledge discovery, today announced its partnership with top publishers and other research providers including Wiley, Harvard DASH, American Society for Microbiology and BioOne. Content from these distinguished publishers will produce new insights and inferences giving knowledge seekers access to important content across various verticals to enhance discovery.

"Yewno allows users to find connections and relationships between previously isolated topics. This different approach to library content discovery tools will provide a great service to researchers."

Recently, Dr. Michael Gazzaniga, a leading neuroscientist commented that moving knowledge forward would, in large part, come from interdisciplinary studies. He added, "Yewno is building a knowledge system that will facilitate that goal like no other."

"Being able to partner with such prominent publishers in education, research and science will have an immediate and far reaching impact on how our customers can benefit from the Yewno inference engine," says Ruth Pickering, Chief Strategy Officer of Yewno. "We are committed to providing users with the most thorough, in-depth information on a variety of topics, ultimately bridging the wide gap between search and deep contextual insights that pave the way to a new knowledge level with unlimited boundaries of discovery," she added.

The content now discoverable through Yewno includes:

  • Wiley, a global company, which helps people and organizations develop the skills and knowledge they need to succeed. "Wiley is looking forward to working with Yewno on this exciting opportunity," said Duncan Campbell, Director, Digital Licensing & Sales Partnerships at Wiley. "Providing Yewno with high-quality scholarly content to enhance its knowledge discovery platform demonstrates Wiley's commitment to working with partners whose products and services make important contributions to advances in knowledge and understanding around the world."
  • Harvard University provides open access to its new research through DASH, its institutional repository. "We're very happy that DASH is now discoverable through Yewno," said Peter Suber, Director of the Harvard Office for Scholarly Communication. "We want Harvard research to be freely available to everyone with an internet connection, and discoverable through cutting-edge tools like Yewno. Keyword searching has served us well, but Yewno and others are proving that there are more powerful ways to find work on a given topic. As scholars explore this power, they will also explore the results of Harvard research."
  • The American Society for Microbiology is the largest single life science society, composed of over 47,000 scientists and health professionals. ASM's mission is to promote and advance the microbial sciences. Barbara Goldman, Director, ASM Journals commented, "Yewno allows users to find connections and relationships between previously isolated topics. This different approach to library content discovery tools will provide a great service to researchers."
  • BioOne is a nonprofit publisher that aims to make scientific research more accessible through a portfolio of products including its full-text aggregation, BioOne Complete. In partnership with more than 145 society and independent publishers, BioOne provides access to a curated collection of 200 subscribed and open-access titles in the biological, ecological, and environmental sciences. Lauren Kane, COO of BioOne, commented, "Fostering scientific discovery and providing new avenues for research are at the very heart of BioOne's mission. We are delighted to partner with Yewno to increase access to and visibility of BioOne Complete content."

Yewno's inference engine is designed to improve human understanding through its goals to provide users with a platform to explore, digest and link information as well as display the paths and possible connection between previously unrelated subjects.
