Update: JournalMap and geosemantic search


We’ve been working with the team at JournalMap, a geosemantic search tool (i.e., it allows you to search and browse for journal articles across an online map) for roughly a year now.

JournalMap have indexed the articles – and continue to index the new articles – for three Taylor & Francis journals. They’ve also created beautiful and useful collections pages for each of those three journals:

Journal of Natural History

South African Journal of Plant and Soil

Studies on Neotropical Fauna and Environment

Articles are indexed on JournalMap based on the location or locations where the research was conducted. In the case of taxonomic journals, such as the Journal of Natural History, articles are indexed based on the locations where the specimens in the article were located.

Taylor & Francis is now working on creating a new Geolocation Information article section for these three journals, which will allow authors to communicate the locations of their research in their articles, ensuring the accuracy and easing the process of indexing. JournalMap also allows people to easily add their own articles to the map.

If you haven’t already, go and check out JournalMap! Please take a look into adding your articles to the map: it can only help to make them more discoverable to your colleagues.
