February 11, 2019 -Redwood City, CA - Yewno, Inc., a leading provider of AI-driven knowledge discovery solutions, today announces that all books and journals offered by leading academic publisher Peter Lang will now be discoverable on the Yewno Discover platform. Peter Lang specializes in the Humanities and Social Sciences, covering the complete publication spectrum from monographs to student textbooks.
Yewno's technology has ingested the full text of Peter Lang's digitally available content in both English and German language, and can therefore surface parts of books and articles that might be undiscovered in other environments. The platform, aptly named Yewno Discover, maps hundreds of millions of semantic connections among concepts extracted from full-text academic resources. Those connections link to over 200 million scholarly articles, books, and database assets – a number that continues to grow every day.
Discover allows researchers and learners to easily and intuitively explore a visual set of connections across a comprehensive research landscape, even in unfamiliar interdisciplinary fields. It is a highly effective method for discovering resources that might have otherwise been overlooked and ensures that users experience comprehensive and credible coverage.
"Peter Lang welcomes digital solutions that enhance the discoverability of academic research. The Yewno Discover platform, using AI technology to create search methods that look beyond mere keyword-matching, is a huge step forward in that direction," says Arnaud Béglé, CEO at Peter Lang. "We are delighted to work with Yewno and to open new channels through which our author's leading-edge research can be found."
"Yewno's users are searching for high-level academic content," says Ruth Pickering, Co-Founder and Chief BD & Strategy Officer at Yewno, "We are constantly expanding the content base and we are delighted now to be partnering with Peter Lang. At the same time, we offer our publishers increased discoverability of their content which will be found in different searches due to our unique product."
