American Institute of Physics Selects Collexis as a Key Technology Partner
Publisher to Leverage Collexis' Semantic Technology and Knowledge Discovery Tools
Melville, NY & Columbia, SC, July 23, 2009 – The American Institute of Physics (AIP), a highly respected publisher of scholarly journals, magazines, and conference proceedings, and leading society publisher, and Collexis Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: CLXS), a premier developer of semantic search and knowledge discovery software, announced today their new technology partnership. The innovative collaboration will allow AIP (www.aip.org) to leverage Collexis' proprietary technology within the physics market.
"As we embrace Web 2.0 functionality, we are also looking to a future that will most definitely rely on semantic publishing," said John Haynes, AIP's Vice President of Publishing. "We've been at the forefront of electronic publishing for 15 years, releasing the first online version of an established physics journal (Applied Physics Letters) in 1995; we've built upon that start through three generations of online services; and now, through our partnership with Collexis, we're ready to aggressively explore all opportunities presented by the semantic web. Look for product announcements flowing out of this partnership in the very near future."
"This unique partnership between AIP and Collexis will allow us to showcase our proprietary Fingerprinting technology to the physics community," states Bill Kirkland CEO of Collexis. "Further it validates that the STM market place is beginning to understand and embrace the benefits and efficiencies of the semantic technology. This partnership will encourage other AIP-affiliated publishers to explore these same knowledge discovery tools."
American Institute of Physics is a federation of 10 physical science societies representing more than 135,000 scientists, engineers, and educators and is one of the world's largest publishers of scientific information in physics. Offering full-solution publishing services for scientific societies and for similar organizations in science and engineering, AIP is a leader in the field of electronic publishing of scholarly journals.

About Collexis Holdings, Inc.
Collexis Holdings, Inc., a leading developer of semantic technology and knowledge discovery software is headquartered in Columbia, South Carolina (USA) with operations in Cincinnati, Ohio, Cologne, Germany and Valparaiso, Chile. Collexis now offers the world's first pre-populated scientific social network for life science researchers, www.biomedexperts.com. Collexis' proprietary technology builds conceptual profiles of text, called Fingerprints, from documents, Websites, emails and other digitized content and matches them with a comprehensive list of pre-defined "fingerprinted" concepts to make research results more relevant and efficient. This matching of concepts eliminates the ambiguity and lack of priority associated with word searches. The results are often described as "finding needles in many haystacks." Through this novel approach, Collexis can build unique applications to search, index and aggregate information as well as prioritize, trend and predict data based on sources in multiple industries without the limitations of language or dialect. Collexis' current clients in the public, private and academic sectors include the Mayo Clinic; Johns Hopkins University; Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, the University of South Carolina; Erasmus University Library; Bristol-Myers Squibb; Lockheed Martin; the World Health Organization; Wellcome Trust; the National Institutes of Health; and the U.S. Department of Defense.
