Key Features of CHEST Publications
Semantic search provides better results by normalizing synonyms, alternate spellings, acronyms, and jargon and by connecting closely related concepts. A search on “sclc,” for example, returns results for “small cell long cancer” instead of just artilces that use the "sclc" acronym. This functionality vastly improves the way users find information by providing results based on a semantic relevancy ranking of normalized concepts and not just word matching.
Semantically generated collections provide quick reference to the full spectrum of CHEST Publications resources on key topics. Physicians can quickly find all content related to their subspecialty and users can also set up alerts to let them know when new content is published in their specific area of interest.
Semantic fingerprinting identifies content relationships and presents them in an easy-to-navigate interface that updates continuously as new CHEST Publications are released. These releationships surface on every page, providing readers with recommendations for highly relevant articles, clinical resources, multimedia, and other resources.
An intuitive interface highlights key CHEST Publications, uses dynamic content relationships, best-answer semantic search, and drag-and-drop site personalization functionality to connect busy professionals with mission-critical information quickly.
All CHEST Publications are optimized for reading on mobile devices making on-the-go information easy to navigate and consume.
Coming Soon! A new iOS application provides subscribers with access to the full CHEST archive – all 77 years of content.
