Elsevier, Computer Weekly's parent company, has bought assets from US-based semantic technology and knowledge discovery software firm Collexis Holdings for an undisclosed sum.

Elsevier plans to integrate the Collexis products into its own SciVal suite of research tools and integrated workflow solutions to enable universities and government agencies to improve research outcomes, Elsevier said.

Collexis products include an "expert profiler" that tracks the development of ideas between people and institutions from published papers; a reviewer finder to identify the most highly qualified researcher with the lowest conflict of interest as a potential reviewer of research reports; a social networking engine for scientists; and a knowledge engine and knowledge services that can index and analyse research papers to expose new knowledge.
