# ISIDORE
## What is ISIDORE?
ISIDORE is a search engine for discovering and finding publications, digital data and profiles of researchers in the social sciences and humanities (SSH) from around the world.
ISIDORE is a search engine for discovering and finding publications, digital data and the profiles of researchers in the social sciences and humanities (SSH) from around the world.
It allows searching the full text of several million documents (articles, theses and dissertations, reports, datasets, web pages, database records, descriptions of archival holdings, etc.), event reports (seminars, conferences, etc.). In addition, ISIDORE links these millions of documents together by enriching them with scientific concepts from the work of the SSH research communities.

It is accessible on the Web through the portal [isidore.science](https://isidore.science).

- Semantic annotation: the words present in the metadata of the documents are compared to the entries of the vocabularies through an algorithm based on a morphological analysis of the terms. If an equivalence is found between a term from the document and an entry in one of the vocabularies, then the resource will be linked to that vocabulary entry. The vocabularies are multilingual and aligned with each other. Thus, the semantic annotation is multilingual.
- Disciplinary categorization: ISIDORE uses a semantic classifier that, after being trained on a reference corpus, categorizes all documents in ISIDORE into the SSH disciplines of the MORESS repository. The training of the classifier is realized with the help of the manual categorization realized by the researchers in HAL during the deposit of their publications.

### Can ISIDORE index multilingual documents and data?
Yes. Since 2015, documents and datasets in English, Spanish
and French are indexed, enriched and linked to scientific repositories by ISIDORE (metadata and full text). For full text outside these three languages, it is indexed in the language of the document but in that cas no enrichment is done.

ISIDORE can propose its research results in the form of RSS feeds in order to feed scientific monitoring software (including Zotero for example), research notebooks, etc. The RSS feeds created in ISIDORE are updated, like all the contents of the search engine, approximately once a month during the general update of the ISIDORE contents. Thus, it is possible to follow, from Zotero, the update of the ISIDORE documents resulting from the registered queries.
