Deep Web Technologies Paves the Way for China to Join the WorldWideScience Alliance

SANTA FE, N.M., Nov. 24, 2008 — Deep Web Technologies' ability to federate searches of deep web content has enabled the addition of essential Chinese research to, the WorldWideScience Alliance's global science gateway. is powered by Deep Web Technologies' Explorit Research Accelerator, a powerful federated search engine that allows anyone with Internet access to launch a single query across WorldWideScience's 375 million pages of scientific and technical information in databases and portals from six continents.

China is the world's second largest publisher of scientific papers, with output that's new to many of the world's researchers. The addition of Chinese publications to WorldWideScience's deep web content is expected to significantly increase the use of Chinese research by the global community.

"Historically, Chinese publications have a low rate of citation," said Brian Hitson, Associate Director for Administration & Information Services at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI), responsible for operating "China's contribution helps to increase the visibility of Chinese publications."

Deep Web Technologies' experts worked with their Chinese counterparts to identify a relevant and useful subset of the massive Chinese research database held by the Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (ISTIC). The effort involved working across language, technical and culture barriers to create an optimized interface to their content, enabling seamless integration of this valuable content into As a result, users can search more than 6,000 Chinese journals.

"The addition of the People's Republic of China to the Alliance last month is pivotal to ensuring comprehensive coverage of the worldwide spectrum of research," said Abe Lederman, Founder and CTO of Deep Web Technologies. "We worked very closely with ISTIC software engineers to ensure precise, fast federated searches of this important content."

Federated search is the future of search because of its ease and power to find content not indexed by the popular search engines, including Google, Yahoo! and others. Similar to metasearch technologies, federated search performs real-time, parallel searches of multiple, deep web information sources, merging the results into one ranked and sorted result list. Federated search enables the rapid and cost-effective integration of multiple, valuable information sources into one web-portal without significant expense or effort on the part of content owners.

"What a wonderful world we live in where search engines like WorldWideScience render findable scholarship produced in societies not one's own that sets you to thinking about issues that had not before entered your ken," concluded Hope Leman, Library Technical Specialist with Samaritan Health Services, in her review of on
