Reviewer Finder to Speed up the Peer Review Process!

COLUMBIA, S.C., Feb. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Collexis Holdings Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CLXS), a leading developer of semantic search and knowledge discovery software, announced today that the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) has licensed the Collexis' Reviewer Finder and Journal Dashboard applications for the 6 AACR cancer research journals.

"The Collexis Review Finder application will certainly enhance and improve our peer review process as we continuously strive to target the most appropriate reviewers", stated Diane Scott-Lichter, Publisher of AACR. "The Journal Dashboard will provide us with key insights concerning the positioning of our journals in the area of cancer research."

"Having the AACR to sign up for our Reviewer Finder application is quite gratifying for us since AACR is the first society to adopt the Reviewer Finder for the publishing process - until today most of the Reviewer Finder customers were other funding organizations like the NHLBI at the NIH and the Wellcome Trust," said Christian Herzog, MD, Managing Director of the Collexis STM Business Unit. "As the AACR begins to use the Journal Dashboards as journal portfolio analysis tools, we are very confident that it will help them to sharpen the profile of their journals."

The Collexis Reviewer Finder helps publishing organizations in two very important ways: first it assists in reducing the time to identify the most qualified reviewers from hours to virtually minutes by automatically suggesting best matching reviewers for a manuscript, secondly it enhances security by identifying potential conflicts of reviewers based on co-authorship and institutional affiliation. The Collexis Reviewer Finder will be integrated into the publishing workflow solution that AACR is using.

The Collexis Journal Dashboard is providing the customer a complex view to analyze the portfolio of a journal, to compare it on a granular basis to others, to understand author patterns and emerging trends - providing insights for strategic decisions on positioning and further development.
