Structured Abstracts

There was a discussion about creating semantic/structured abstracts of papers in Nautilus , in Neil's blog and I also suggested it before. We can fantasize about this but for this and other things (tagging, unique id for authors, ...) we are still dependent of the NCBI. A central repository of those structured abstract could be created but I fear it would be only filled by a only few people. Moreover using text mining on pubmed can give some good results: see http://www.ihop-net.org/UniPub/iHOP/ (There may be other refs but I like this one).
