The wealth of information in OnePetro is delivered using Semantico’s industry-respected content platform, Scolaris. Scolaris is engineered to manage the complexities of journals, ebooks, reference works and dictionaries. Scolaris promotes discoverability by providing intelligent, full-text search which allows for rich taxonomy support for faceted search and browse.
