1. What is SAPIENT?

SAPIENT stands for "Semantic Annotation of Papers: Interface & ENrichment Tool". It is an annotation interface implemented as a web application, to help you annotate scientific papers in XML, sentence by sentence, with a set of concepts called General Scientific Concepts (GSCs See http://ie-repository.jisc.ac.uk/88/). GSCs constitute the set of concepts essential for describing a scientific investigation. However, SAPIENT can also be used in conjunction with other annotation schemas to annotate papers in XML sentence by sentence (See question 21). SAPIENT also incorporates Oscar3 functionality, allowing the automatic annotation of chemical named entities.
