Press Release: Yewno [August 31, 2017]

Yewno expands Discover Platform content through key partnerships with influential publishers

Redwood City, CA August 31, 2017 -- The Company announced today further expansion of the Yewno Discover content set with the addition of content from Project MUSE, Annual Reviews and IOP Publishing.

With these partnerships, Yewno Discover continues to develop, further providing the Education sector with the facility to transform the research experience by inviting users to be more curious and explore more deeply.

Yewno Discover allows researchers and learners to easily and intuitively explore a visual set of connections across a comprehensive research landscape. Crucially, it facilitates serendipitous and interdisciplinary discovery, all with an intuitive interface. This is deeply reflective of the lateral thinking that is required of both researchers and students as they prepare for the fast-paced working world of today. As Discover is augmented by the additions of new, diverse content, it becomes all the more valuable to researchers and students in their knowledge discovery journey.

Discover also ensures that users can instantly connect into the full articles and source materials they find by syncing with a library's existing search tools and platforms. This increases the discoverability of a publisher's content, and can lead to increased content usage and sales.

Users of the Discover knowledge inference tool will now benefit from Yewno's new partnership with Project MUSE. "Yewno is delighted to partner with Project MUSE through the inclusion of their content in Discover," comments co-founder Ruth Pickering. "With over 200 publishers currently partnering with Project MUSE, the new content added to Discover vastly deepens the connections between concepts visualized, ultimately enriching the knowledge discovery experience for researchers and students."

"Project MUSE is excited about the opportunities created by combining Yewno's powerful conceptual search abilities with the rich, peer-reviewed resources on our platform." comments Wendy Queen, Director, Project MUSE. "This partnership will help users create new content connections, enhancing understanding and advancing scholarship."

Discover will also be enhanced as a result of the new partnership with Annual Reviews.

Director of MarCom & Strategic Development of Annual Reviews, Liz Allen comments: "There's great synergy between our mission of synthesizing and integrating expert knowledge and Yewno's ability to help researchers discover and contextualize novel concepts. With 50 journals in a range of scientific disciplines, Annual Reviews content is an important addition to Discover, that will greatly benefit scientific enquiry through Discover."

Discover's science content will also now be deeply augmented by the addition of content from IOP Publishing. IOP, who publish books, magazines, and over 70 journals, cover a range of subjects from Astronomy and Astrophysics to Materials Science. "Yewno's visual application of AI is an innovative way for researchers to discover relevant content through exploring topic maps. IOP Publishing is enthusiastic to support Yewno and to help researchers discover content in exciting new ways." comments Graham McCann, Head of Content and Platform Management at IOP Publishing. "IOP's publishing activity dates back to 1894..." comments Ruth Pickering, "This provides a rich historical perspective of science in addition to current knowledge, which is valuable to the Discover product."

Yewno, who recently announced an extension of their Discover product to the High School market, has grown exponentially in both its content offering and adoption by higher education institutions. The Discover platform now contains well over 120 million content assets. They welcome content from a wide range of academic and professional sources and encourage contact from Publishers and content providers to discuss how Yewno might help improve their discoverability through the Discover platform.
