SANTA FE, N.M., March 4, 2009 — Deep Web Technologies launched their advanced alerts service in Scitopia.org, the free, federated search portal powered by Deep Web Technologies’ Explorit Research Accelerator(TM). Scitopia.org Alerts delivers science and engineering content of interest to users through email and RSS feeds automatically, rather than forcing users to come to scitopia.org to perform searches themselves. The service makes it easy for users to stay current on research from the deep web libraries of major science and engineering societies, such as IEEE, Institute of Physics, American Physical Society as well as patent databases and government sources.
“Scitopia.org is an important service for scientific researchers,” said Abe Lederman, Deep Web Technologies founder and CTO. “Our alerts service makes their research more efficient by creating a single information retrieval station – their email inbox or a RSS feed.”
Scitopia.org, designed for direct access to the best in science and technology research, provides a one-stop search interface to more than three and a half million peer-reviewed articles and conference proceedings, fifty million patents, and full-text documents from government websites. Founded in 2007, scitopia.org spans 350 years of data, federating the scholarly content from twenty-one societies, and six government information sources. Each search is run against all or selected digital collections, then results are aggregated, de-duplicated and ranked for maximum search efficiency.
Content providers and publishers, such as scitopia.org’s publishing partners, rely on Deep Web Technologies’ federated search technology because it enables fee-based or proprietary content to be searched publicly on the Internet, without giving it away. This deep web content, considered by many to be the most valuable, is not available through the common public search engines, such as Google, Yahoo! and MSN Live Search.
Scitopia.org Alerts service automatically runs searches requested by users on the terms and those societies they choose to include in their search. The technology “remembers” which search results have already been delivered to the user and sends only new results, making it a powerful tool for researchers to identify new publications and articles in their areas of interest. Alerts can be created for any term or field, including author, abstracts, and affiliations. The technology also recognizes institutional subscriptions to society content and automatically authenticates those users, allowing them to click through to the full text from the Alert. Others can purchase full text on a pay-per-view basis.
Deep Web Technologies’ reputation for creating powerful, scientific, federated search portals has vaulted its technology to industry prominence. In addition to creating scitopia.org, Deep Web Technologies powers the new, publicly available website Mednar (http://www.mednar.com), a gateway to high-quality, deep web medical information. Mednar was recently named best health information search engine by AltSearchEngines.com, a Web site focusing on niche search engines. Later this year, Deep Web Technologies will re-launch its ScienceResearch.com website, incorporating enhanced federated search technology, a Web 2.0 interface, with significantly more sources. These additional sources will include Science.gov, Mednar and WorldWideScience.org as featured search websites.
