We are excited to announce a new feature linking Scholars Portal’s Journals and Books platforms. Over 17,000 book review articles on the Scholars Portal Journals platform now link directly to the title being reviewed on Scholars Portal Books. 

When a user lands on a book review on the Journals platform, they will be presented with an icon of the book cover linking them to the full text on the Books platform.

This feature is based on linked data technology using MarkLogic Semantics. This is the first step of a linked data project undertaken by Scholars Portal staff to build linkages across our content platforms for enhanced discovery.
If you have any questions about the Journals platform or the linked data project, please contact journals [at]
