Collexis Launches Innovative Reviewer Finder to Enhance the $30 Billion Health Research Grant Industry
Date:11/24/2008

COLUMBIA, S.C., Nov. 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Collexis Holdings Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CLXS), a leading developer of semantic search and knowledge discovery software, announced today the formal launch of the Reviewer Finder product, an application which identifies the best reviewers based on their research profile. By using the proprietary Collexis Fingerprint technology, a submitted grant proposal or submitted scientific manuscript is analyzed and the resulting document Fingerprint is compared against more than 1.8 million expert Fingerprints -- simultaneously checking for conflicts of interest based on co-authorship and organizational affiliation.

The Collexis Reviewer Finder helps grant funding organizations in two very important ways: first it assists in reducing the time to identify the most qualified reviewers from hours to virtually minutes, secondly it enhances security by identifying reviewers with potential conflicts of interest by instantly analyzing over 30 million relationships between the research community and peer review community. The Reviewer Finder tool is the latest enhancement to the suite of Collexis grant management applications. These services provide funding organizations with sophisticated portfolio analysis tools to assist in identifying gaps and trends and track the success of their funding by an institution, department or researcher.

"We are very pleased to offer this new application to the scientific community as it will greatly enhance the efficiency in the publishing of scientific articles," says Christian Herzog, MD, managing director STM. "It helps funding organizations and peer reviewed journals to reduce the amount of time to identify the right reviewer but -- equally important -- to increase security that the chosen reviewer has no conflict of interest."

Customers like the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the world's largest funder of life-science research, and the Wellcome Trust, the largest independent medical research charity in the UK, utilize the Collexis solution to ensure the objectivity of their grant funding processes. The NHLBI as one of the largest NIH institutes has started to implement the Collexis Reviewer Finder to identify the best reviewers in a customized version.

Collexis' proprietary technology builds conceptual profiles of text, called "Fingerprints", from documents, Websites, emails and other digitized content and matches them with a comprehensive list of pre-defined "Fingerprinted" concepts to make research results more relevant and efficient.
