Why and How We Built a Domain-based Subject Gateway: Ortho Search

  • 1. CORE


OrthoSearch is a domain-based aggregated collection of content relating to orthopaedics. Produced and curated by one small independent publisher, it aims to provide a comprehensive coverage of domain content by indexing the content from all the journals in the sector. An innovative interface combines free-text and semantic searching, and the use of a custom ontology created for this site, together with an extensive set of filters, makes content discovery more powerful and manageable than using a more general search engine. Users are able to discover content via symptoms, drugs, or conditions. The content included comprises not only academic articles but conference papers, discussion pieces, case studies, videos, and other content types. Launched in 2021, OrthoSearch has become the default starting point for academics and medical professionals seeking to keep up to date in the domain of orthopaedic surgery.
